On the day of departure you will be collected from your hotel at first light and
transferred to the reserve gate. The journey takes approximately 5 hours with
stops along the way. You will meet your ranger at a lovely bush pub at the edge
of the reserves, where you will sign the indemnity forms and have lunch
together. After lunch, we transfer you into open safari vehicles to one of our
bush camps in Klaserie or Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, making sure that you
spend the maximum time out in the bush!
In the mornings we set off at first light after a snack breakfast of rusks and coffee or tea. Enjoying the cool morning air we may walk directly from camp or else use a vehicle to get further out. Your ranger will decipher the tracks and signs left by the passing animals during the night. The thrill of walking, tracking and getting up close to one of the creatures of the bush is an unforgettable experience. On the walks there is a lot of emphasis on all of nature’s wonders, big and small, such as trees, plants, insects and birds. A big breakfast is prepared back in camp and then there is time to unwind and siesta or spot some birds around the camp. After lunch is served it is time to head out again.
The afternoon activity is a walk/ drive combination, looking for tracks and activity in other areas.
After the walk we drive to a beautiful spot in the Reserve, where we’ll have sundowners while waiting for a stunning African Sunset. As the diurnal animals and birds anxiously get ready for bed, the stage and sounds change and a whole new world awakens. This is when we connect the spotlight and night drive back to camp, looking for the nocturnal creatures that are so rarely seen during the day. Back in camp a hearty supper and a warm campfire will be waiting for you. After a long day in the bush there is nothing more rewarding then to sneak off to bed and listen to the sounds of the night under a blanket of the overwhelming African stars!
On the day of departure you will still go out for one last walk. Sniffing the typical scents of the bush you’ll realise how much you’ve learned already! After breakfast it’s time to pack up and go back to the bush pub, where you will pay the Conservation Fee and the drinks you’ve consumed in our camps. Then we say our goodbyes and transfer you back to the city.
