  • Large herds of elephant drinking and bathing in the river are joined by groups of buffalo, while red lechwe, puku, zebra, sable and roan antelope can be spotted grazing on the floodplains. Prolific birdlife can be encountered along the river’s edge, where carmine bee-eaters build massive colonies in the exposed sandbanks..

 

 

    • Morning Game Drive – As dawn breaks over the bush, the deep voice of your butler delivers a wake-up call at your tent. A tray of tea, coffee and homemade biscuits will be waiting outside your tent. Climb into an open 4×4 safari vehicle with your guide and tracker, and set off through the waking bush. You may be lucky enough to spot predators feasting on their kill from the night before or herds of buffalo grazing before the heat of the day.
    • Breakfast – After a morning spent tracking down wildlife, return to the camp for a hearty bush breakfast. Feast  on platters laden with toast, jams and marmalades, homemade muesli, fresh fruits and assorted cheeses. Hot breakfasts are prepared on the open fire, with eggs, omelettes, frittatas and freshly cooked pot breads

    • Afternoon Game Drive – Depart on an afternoon game drive as the heat of the day starts to break or try something a little different on a river cruise. Glide among hundreds of elephant, which come down to drink or just cavort in the cooling waters. Hippo can be spotted both in and out of the water, and herds of beautiful sable wander the water’s edge. Snacks and sundowners are served on board as the sun sinks beneath the horizon.
