Traditional open safari vehicles driven by licensed experienced guides. In the early morning (exact times vary depending on the season but normally somewhere between 5am to 7am) you will be woken by your guide with a gentle ‘knock’ at the door and will gather for a quick cup of tea and snack before heading out on the morning drive. The drive is normally around 3 to 4 hours (including a tea and coffee stop in the middle) and you then return for a large cooked breakfast. Some months of the year you will have a larger breakfast before heading out on the morning game drive, meaning that you won’t have a breakfast on your return, but will freshen up and then have brunch in the late morning. A lunch and/or high tea will then be served later in the day before heading out (depending on the season between 4pm to 5pm) on the afternoon game drive. The afternoon game drive will stop at sunset for a traditional ‘sundowner’ with drinks and snacks. You will then continue the rest of the drive in the dark, using a filter light and flash light to look for nocturnal animals. On return to the lodge you will then have time to freshen up before your three course dinner.  Land cruisers seat up to nine guests and Land Rovers seat up to seven guests but lodges will always try to take just four (preferred) or a maximum of six guests per vehicle, unless requested otherwise.
