The day your safari begins. Cavernous valleys. Vast deserts. Lush forests. Sparkling lakes. Arid plains. Vibrant waterfalls. And, most especially, animals by thousands. The sleek cats...lion, leopard, and cheetah. Elephants by the thundering herd. Exotic birds in every conceivable shape, size, and color. Wildebeest, rhino, eland, buffalo, zebra, gazelle, giraffe, waterbuck, klipspringer, and impala are abundant and easily within your view.
Because the weather is so mild in East Africa, there are no constraints as to when to go on a game drive, and you tailor-make your safari days:-
Out early and back for breakfast...
Out after breakfast with a picnic lunch, back late-afternoon
A post-lunch game drive, back at sunset
Or very best of all, spending a full day, with a picnic lunch

The knowledge of our safari guide and their sharp eyes will do the rest.
We classified game drives into three categories as described below...
