A Day on Safari

No two days are the same on safari.  When you stay at an exclusive African safari camp or lodge, you may have a private guide and vehicle and will be able to tailor your safari activities to suit you. Your day usually starts with an early wake up to a fresh cup of coffee and a rusk (a type of biscuit) before heading off on your game drive, camel trek, quad bike, horse ride, walking safari, hot air balloon safari or boat trip.  On these activities you will always be accompanied by a highly experienced guide.  At mid morning you will head back to the camp for a sumptuous breakfast or brunch that is usually prepared in front of you at an outside lapa or on the camp fire.  At some of the camps you will be treated to a delicious bush breakfast – prepared for you in a scenic spot at a river front or in a clearing.  You will then spend some time relaxing before enjoying a light lunch and siesta.  In the afternoon you will be invited to enjoy some cake and tea before heading off for your afternoon activity.  On your way back to the camp you will usually stop at a scenic spot to enjoy a sundowner or two.  Dinner is served in a camp dining room or outside under the stars, next to the roaring camp fire.  Most of the camps in South Africa have a wine cellar that is stocked with a variety of award winning wines for you to choose from. After dinner you can retire to your suite or spend some time relaxing around the camp fire – enjoying a night cap and sharing stories with other guests.   As you settle in to your comfortable bed for the night, you will lulled to sleep by the sounds of the bush.
