There is no way to know exactly what a luxury safari experience will bring, as each day is an amazing and new adventure.
A typical day on your wonderful South African safari might go something just like this:
Your mornings will begin early. If the chatter of birds has not yet woken you, a friendly wake-up call will ensure you are ready for the morning game drive (you’ll be glad of the early start, we promise!). To prepare you for this morning's game drive, your guide and tracker will meet you with freshly brewed coffee and tea with rusks (the South African version of biscotti), fruit, and muffins. This is the magnificent beginning to a new day as you watch Africa awaken.
Relaxing Afternoons on Safari in Africa
Lounge on your deck or in your tent with a good book, take a refreshing dip in the pool, relish the tranquility of the bush, or enjoy a siesta under an umbrella or tree, to make up for the early morning.
Around noon a delicious lunch awaits. Savor each bite of freshly prepared cuisine from local recipes and enjoy the surrounding landscape as you relax. If you would like to walk off your lunch, talk to your ranger about a bushwalk – usually for about an hour near the lodge – a time to look at trees, insects, flowers, and birds.
At roughly 3:30 pm, you’ll be invited to join the rangers for afternoon tea – a Colonial tradition with a South African twist. Iced and regular coffee, homemade lemonade, and tea are accompanied by cakes, cookies, and other savory snacks.
Return to the lodge, where a welcome shower awaits. Then look forward to a multi-course meal served at an elegantly set table or in an open “boma” under the stars. After dinner, gather around the campfire to exchange stories of the day’s sightings, stargaze, or retire in preparation for another breathtaking day on safari in Africa.
