What is a Game Drive in South Africa?
Searching for wild animals with a safari truck., that’s what ‘Game Drives’ are all about. In other words: a real safari in South Africa. A game drive is highly recommended if you are staying in one of the villas of Homes of Africa.
Morning game drive
Wild animals are mostly active in the early mornings and late afternoons. That’s why the Game Drives always start early, about 5 o’clock in the morning. Game drives last 3 to 4 hours and include an extensive breakfast. Coffee and snacks are also included in the Game Drive.
Afternoon game drive
At around 16:00 o’clock the ‘afternoon game drive’ sets off, and also takes about 3 to 4 hours. Stops for snacks and drinks are often included, drinks appropriately called ‘sundowner drinks’, considering you’ll enjoy them simultaneously with the sunset. Afterwards, you’ll continue the ride in the dark, after the sun has set. This enables you to admire the animals in both day and night. The Game Drive safari can be wrapped with up by a South African dinner, where you can relive and share your experience beneath the starry South African night sky. A Game Drive is a must when visiting South Africa!
It’s also possible to go on a safari of your own, for example in the Kruger Park or around the holiday homes.
