Kruger Park Game Drives
One cannot ignore the endearing and palpable feeling of freedom when spending time in the wilderness. For most, it is a unique and humbling experience to a place unknown, where primeval instincts are revived and nature’s lessons are learned. To further enhance the bush encounter, visitors should take advantage of the Kruger Park Game Drives which are on offer at most of the camps in the reserve. Experienced rangers will be able to answer any questions and explain nature’s fascinating quirks.
The Kruger Park Game Drives are conducted in traditional 9-seater safari vehicles. Seating in the vehicle is raised to ensure prime game-viewing. Your safari guide is there to assist with queries and requests while a proficient tracker inspects for signs of life and movement left by game in the bush. Game drives are offered at different times of the day, some better for game viewing, others offering rests at special sites where sundowners can be enjoyed in the tranquil setting.
There are 2 times for game drives that from experience are the best toms to view game. For the pre-dawn risers, an early morning game drive lasting 3 – 4 hours is on offer from 5am to 9am. This is a great time to spot wildlife. The lengthier 3 – 4 hour sunset game drive also brings along the opportunity to sip cocktails in the bush , from 4pm to 8pm. Darkness brings about a time of both danger and respite in the bush which allows you to possibly spot smaller carnivores like Genet or Civet that one would not usually spot by day. This is also the period when most of the predators hunt so the late night game drive could potentially be the most exciting of all.
Whatever time of day you choose to manoeuvre through the bush, Kruger Park game drives are rated as one of the best safari experiences around and will certainly be a highlight of your stay.
