Safari Activities

African safari activities are designed to maximize not only game viewing, but your immersion into the wilderness. This is why many safari lodges and camps offer more than just your standard game drive. However, regardless of the variety of activities available, quality should always supersede quantity. Though the Big Five certainly reign supreme and offer exhilarating encounters, the safari experience has much more to offer the avid nature enthusiast. The variety of activities is thus more about diversifying your experience rather than increasing the number of sightings on your list.

Game Drives

An open 4x4 game drive serves as the quintessential African safari experience. This activity has its origins in the early days of the Kruger National Park, when the first visitors to the park would view wildlife from the comfort of a steam train.

Today, your game drives are conducted from the back of open-air 4x4 safari vehicles or closed air-conditioned vehicles. These excursions typically take place in the early morning hours or late afternoon, when the animals are at their most active.

Water-based Game Viewing

Of all the countries we offer safaris to, Botswana is certainly most notable for its many opportunities for water-based game viewing. In fact, select camps in the Okavango Delta offer exclusively water-based safaris in traditional mokoro canoes (or fiberglass replicas). Gliding quietly along the emerald waterways of the delta is simultaneously tranquil and thrilling. Guests are always accompanied by experienced guides to ensure their safety.

Bush Walks

When enjoying a safari in Africa, there is no better way to dig your heels into nature than pursuing a tracker and guide into the bush. With only the experienced knowledge of an armed ranger between you and the thrilling perils of the wild, a bush walk can prove both an exciting and relaxing part of your safari holiday.

Bush walks are typically conducted in the early morning or afternoon with groups of up to 8 people.

Birding

Southern Africa is truly a birder's paradise. The Kruger National Park alone is home to around 500 species of birds, including migrants and vagrants. South Africa totals more than 829 species - the most in Southern Africa - while Zambia comes in second at 770. Botswana, surprisingly, hosts the least, but its unique landscapes like the Makgadikgadi Pans and the Okavango Delta draw magical proliferations of waterbirds in the wet season.
