Day 2-4

Safari Time

Safari Time

Day two starts of early, with a coffee of tea up at the main lodge deck. This is normally always filled with excitement as guests compare what animal species they heard calling in the night.

Once ready, we then depart on our second game drive in search of big cats and great photographic opportunities. We will spend the morning photographing anything of interest we find along the way, making sure we try new and different techniques when appropriate.

After the morning safari (approximately 3 hours) we will return to the lodge for breakfast, a short teaching session, a dip in the pool, some relaxation time and a light lunch. This is also a great time to download your images and prepare for the afternoon drive.

We will then depart on the afternoon drive again.

After the pm drive we will once again return to camp where we will enjoy a well deserved dinner before heading in for the night in preparation for the next day.
