The safaris take place either in the morning or late afternoon moving into the early evening. The reason for this is that it is when the wildlife are most active due to the temperatures being the most moderate. It is also important to note that this area does not get affected by a migration of species which means that the game viewing is consistently good all year round and the only change in seasons is really to the surrounding landscape and daily temperatures.
Fitness & Exercise
Although you are outdoors a large portion of the day one does not have the opportunity to do any strenuous exercise such as running as in this environment runners would be too great a temptation for all of those very opportunistic predators! Although we do offer some incredible wildlife walks we have created a workout gym for those of you who like to get in a little more of a workout to keep in shape.
