Game Drives

Late afternoon Game Drives depart as the fierce heat of the day cools, the inhabitants of the bush become restless, and the animals move out of the shade of the trees. The Guinea fowl call reverberates through the bushveld, followed by the howl of the jackal. You will become aware of colours softening to the beautiful, gentle hues as the sky turns to the sensational vibrant reds, golds and oranges typical of a Northern Cape and African sunset. Evening scents fill the air as the sun dips behind the horizon. Here you can view over 36 different animal species and hundreds of bird species. Be part of the Roan and Sable antelope herds as they wander around in search of their favourite grazing areas.
