What to expect on this overnight safari?

It may at first seem like South Africa’s largest botanical garden but we promise you that there are animals lurking around nearly every bush. The tour includes over 12 hours of game drives where you will get the opportunity to view the wild animals in their natural environment.

And just to make sure you don’t lose touch of those creature comforts, we even have a bedside light, duvets and fluffy white pillows. The rest of the camp comprises of a cooking/mess/communal tent. The traditional dinners are served under the stars next to roaring camp fire.
