Game Drives

Tanzanian game drives take place in the early morning and late afternoon when the animals are naturally most active. Your English-speaking guide and local tracker team pool their knowledge, experience and fresh observations to optimise your wildlife sightings. The entire experience is informative and enthralling. Your guide is often a keen photographer and will be conscious and considerate if your mission is to capture sightings on camera.


Open-sided 4×4 game vehicle

Your mode of transport, is an open-sided 4×4 game vehicle. This offers safe, yet close wildlife encounters. Guests sit up high for the best ‘spotting’ of wildebeest, birds and other wildlife. There are no sides to inhibit your views and you naturally feel more in tune with nature. In the summer months, a shade top is added to protect against the African sun, but in winter it is open to the skies for the best bird-viewing and for stargazing.

Your guide helps you to interpret what you see. They also communicate with other vehicles by radio in order to keep in touch with sightings nearby.


Tune into the sounds of the bush…

The tracker, seated in the hot seat at the front of the vehicle, tunes into clues offered by the bush. It may be the spoor of the migrating wildebeest herd, a big cat on the hunt or a tell-tale sign where a kill has been dragged into the bush.

But it is not just about game-viewing. You’ll start to tune into the sights and sounds of the bush, traversing the land and soaking it all in whilst you stop for a morning coffee or a sundowner in a beautiful spot.

Our vehicles come equipped with blankets, bird books, binoculars, water and refreshments. However, we do recommend that you bring your own binoculars for maximum enjoyment.
