GAME DRIVES

Promising an incomparable experience in the wild, you’ll safari twice daily aboard our Toyota Land Cruisers, customized for your comfort.

Our four-wheel drive jeeps are geared for all terrains, and have been designed to maximize wildlife viewing in absolute comfort. They are also incredibly practical. Each is equipped with a cool box of refreshments and snacks, along with binoculars and wildlife field guides. We also have photographic equipment including battery charging facilities, camera support points, bean bags and arm clamps.
