The daily 'on road'
game drives in the Kruger National Park are carried out in
air-conditioned vehicles with opening windows. In the Sabi Sand
Reserve your daily 'off road' game drives are carried out in
completely open 4x4 Land Rovers driving off
For successful and enjoyable 'on road' wildlife viewing
(game viewing drives) in the Kruger Park your Safari Ranger will drive
to areas of the park where the game is concentrated at that
time. With all our Kruger Park game
viewing drives you travel relaxed in
comfort and with your drinks kept chilled, excellent visibility
ensured, your on road game viewing drives are maximised.
For 'close up' photographs your Safari Ranger
will approach any animal
on or next to the road, as close as possible,
you in any danger or the animals under any stress.
Your Safari Ranger will stop off at different
picnic spots and rest camps when driving around; to top up
the vehicles 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.
The game drives in
Kruger Park are a nice introduction before going
on to the Sabi Sands.
For your 'off road' wildlife viewing
an experienced game ranger and his
Shangaan tracker will guide you on
three totally open '4 x 4 Land Rover' game drives each day - early
morning, late afternoon and at night.
The game drives are carried out at these times because the animals
are most active moving around the reserve during these cooler
periods of the day searching for either fresh grazing or water.
The predators take the opportunity to hunt during these same periods.
On the game drives
you search for animals by traversing the Sabi
Sands using the narrow dirt roads that have been formed over the
years. The dirt roads crisscross the reserve in all directions
- to water holes, across rivers, through open plains of grassland,
thick woodland bush and even down dried river beds.
This traditional method of game viewing is comfortable, safe,
exciting and of course very rewarding.
We are flexible in the number of hours
driving around the Kruger Park, especially when it comes to families
with young children.
The game drives in the Sabi Sands are not compulsory. If you wished
to stay in bed one morning you would be more than welcome to do
different game viewing styles
