Kruger Park Expedition Safari

Game Viewing Drives

     
     

The guided game viewing drives on our Fly-Drive Kruger Park Expedition Safaris are carried out in the same manner as our Classic Safaris, with the difference being that YOU will be driving the Land Rover - that's what you wanted, more adventure for your Kruger Park safari.

With all the game viewing drives, you travel relaxed in your Land Rover with your drinks kept chilled in the cooler box, excellent visibility ensured, your on-road game viewing drives are maximised.

One of the more productive times to enjoy game viewing is first thing in the morning before the heat of the day kicks in. After a few hours of early morning game viewing your Safari Ranger will stop the convoy for breakfast.

After breakfast the game viewing drive will continue by either returning back to camp via another route or will continue on to your second camp in time for checking in and lunch.

After lunch you may wish to stay at camp and siesta instead of continuing on with the game viewing drive into the afternoon. Although the heat minimises animal movement it is always worth going on a game viewing drive after lunch. Sometimes it's nice to park up at a waterhole and wait patiently to see what animals come to drink. You never know what you might see!

Late afternoon is another productive time for game viewing as the day starts to cool down ensuring further animal movement.  Finally you return back to camp to join up with the others who had a siesta; either in time for your open night game drive or before the camp gates close for the night.

In reality you'll find yourself more than likely driving around most of the day. You will drive along the Kruger Parks road network, both on tarmac but mainly on gravel roads.

Your Safari Ranger knows the Kruger Park inside out and upside down. With the years of experience gained operating each day in the park, you will drive through the some of the best game viewing areas, stopping off at the numerous waterhole's and checking river lines, searching for as many animals as possible: more than just the Big Five.

Approximately 145 mammal species occur in the park. Large carnivores include Lion, Leopard, Cheetah, Wild Dog and Spotted Hyena. You will also spend time viewing herds of animals - Elephant, Buffalo, Zebra, Giraffe, Impala, Kudu and Waterbuck. There are also many smaller mammals all of which are equally exciting.

For 'close up' photographs your Safari Ranger will approach the animals as close as possible in his/her Land Rover for you to follow suit, done so without placing you in any danger or the animals under any stress.

Driving around you will be able to stop off at different picnic spots and rest camps, for you to top up your Land Rovers cooler box with further refreshments, as well as taking the opportunity to freshen up at the toilet facilities, to have a stretch or a cigarette.

Driving around in Land Rovers in convoy, you will experience great game viewing.
