A Typical Day on Safari
Out on safari, camp managers and your guide will assist you to plan each day, telling you about the area, and the various options on offer – whether you would prefer to be walking, game viewing, enjoying some quiet bird watching, go for ‘sundowners’, or just spend some time relaxing on your verandah, taking in the stunning African views.
Your guide will be able to teach you about Kenya or Tanzania, the history, traditions, the wildlife and its ecosystem. All guides speak English and they will share with you the beautiful wilderness areas and will take care of your safety and comfort.
The best times for viewing animals are in the cool hours of the early morning, and late afternoon. A typical day on safari:
- Rise early to a cup of tea or coffee, before leaving camp for your game drive
- or guided bush walk.
- Breakfast is often taken as a picnic, to give you maximum gamedriving flexibility. Return to camp during the late morning (before the main heat of the day).
- With a delicious lunch in camp (unless guests are on a full day’s game drive, which would involve a picnic lunch), this hotter part of the day is generally a relaxing time when guests can enjoy the swimming pool, a siesta, or catch up with your journal.
- After a cup of traditional afternoon tea and delicious cake, set out on your afternoon activity – be it a game drive, guided bush walk, horse ride or…
- Enjoy the sun setting over the vast African plains at the end of the day, find a perfect spot to watch this dramatic time of day unfold, with glass of wine or “G&T” in hand. This activity is fondly known as ‘Sundowners’.
- Back at camp enjoy a hot shower, and over a delicious dinner, exchange stories of your day.
