A Day on Safari

Every day in the bush is different. Every game viewing is an adventure into the unknown.

The experience of a day on safari with Shrike is very different from the rest—every minute is exceptional, and some moments really stand out.

Sun—up at 6.00 a.m.

It is still dark but time for a bucket-list adventure. With a soft knock on the door, early morning steaming coffee or tea awaits you as you prepare for an early morning game drive or enjoy a bird’s eye view, a hearty breakfast, and a glass of champagne during the hot-air balloon safari.

Midday Experience

At around noon.

Luncheon. 3 up to 7 courses, an extravagant variety of fresh and delicious foods. Yet another opportunity to absorb the beauty that surrounds you. Take your book and head to the Pavilion where you will find a lovely swimming pool. Laze in the sun or the shade and order a platter of Africa’s finest cheese and a glass of chilled white wine
