FAQs - national park

Each National Park varies with its exact schedule, but we generally follow a typical pattern with two game drives each day. The morning may begin with a hot drink and light snack before the first drive which starts at or just after sunrise. There are great opportunities to see wildlife at this time since it is still fairly cool and animals are most active. The morning drive usually ends by late morning with guests returning to the camp for breakfast/brunch.  Guests generally relax at the camp for the middle of the day. This is because the animals are quite inactive during the heat of the day - seeking shelter in the shade. Guests have lunch and enjoy the camp facilities or some properties offer short walks.The second game drive will follow afternoon tea in the late afternoon and perhaps end at a scenic point to view the sunset. Some camps offer night drives after this. Guests later return to the camp for drinks and dinner.
