Night Drive Safari Tour
A Night Drive Safari is a game drive that operates after dark, with a powerful spotlight. This 3-hour safari on an Open Game Drive Safari Vehicle offers one a chance of witnessing the elusive Leopard, Giraffe, Buffalo, Elephants, Hippos grazing, Chameleons and so much more. The advantage of a night drive is that they provide access to nocturnal species that are rarely seen during the day, such as Hippo, Bush Babies, Chameleons, Aardvarks and Leopard are also more active after dark, and there is a greater probability of seeing them hunt at night. Night Drive Safaris are ever so popular with the safari-goers to take part in. A night drive safari has a unique and exciting atmosphere; different types of animals (nocturnal) are active at night, from the big cats to smaller mammals. With varying behavior nocturnal animals are bolder at night and shy during the day this increases your chances of witnessing that elusive Leopard. Exhilarating to sit in the middle of a herd of elephants in the moonlight or the thunder pounding sound of buffalo hooves in the darkness is also quite a rush.
We travel in an exclusive concession-ed area, your knowledgeable guide explains animal movements by night, star constellations and of course enjoy magnificent sightings while on this safari.
Departures are 7:00 or 8:00 pm daily and truly a must should you be in the area. It's bush calls, predators hunting, and animals stalking. Each game drive vehicle is fitted with 2/3 night spotlights, you are welcome to give a hand to the ranger and take part in discovering the African bush by night.
