Upon arrival at the welcome lounge, enjoy a refreshment before being transferred to your lodge and enjoying a sumptuous lunch before settling into your room / tent.
    Sundowner evening drives offer spectacular displays of light as the evening sun sets over the Little Karoo.

During the drive, various species of plants, animals, big game and birds can be seen in the Karoo bush veld. Upon return, enjoy some pre-dinner drinks and then settle in for a delicious dinner at the lodge before retiring for the night.

    TOUR ENDS

Note

Game drives will take between 2 and 3 hours depending on how much time is spent at each sighting. There will be a coffee stop on the morning drive and a sundowner stop on the evening drive.
It is advisable to bring warm clothes along for the drive even in the hot summer months. Your game ranger will provide ponchos and warm blankets and has a bird book and binoculars. Remember to bring your camera and video camera with you.

All safari options close to Cape Town are in newly established private game reserves and thus cannot be compared to a safari in a more established game viewing area like Kruger National Park which has been around for a hundred or so years. These options fill a very important role in the safari market by offering those persons who have never been on safari and who do not have the time to visit a more established reserve the chance to view Africas wild animals … sometimes for the first time.
