Game Drives (included in rate)
Game Drives at Baobab Ridge are in open Land Rovers with qualified senior guides. Our guides are passionate about wildlife and are in contact with the other vehicles on game drives, greatly increasing your chances of finding the wildlife that you want to see. Our vehicles may also leave the road to follow animals into the bush and thus provide opportunities to witness behavior and interactions you might not see otherwise. We are a Big 5 area, so we do see lion, leopard, wild dog, elephant, buffalo and many more in our area! Your ranger will share expert knowledge and information about each species and their behavior. Birding is quite spectacular, especially during spring and summer when the migrants breed.
Night drives are also exceptionally good opportunities to spot game not usually seen during the day. Our afternoon game drives end in the dark, thus giving our guests the opportunity to experience a night drive as well! Don’t miss the chance to spot lion and other nocturnal species who are at their most energetic at night. See how the guides find the smallest of creatures from Chameleons to the elusive Leopard. A spotlight on our open safari vehicle ensures great views and animal encounters in the dark. On our afternoon drive, you will make a stop for sundowners, to watch the sunset before heading out again. Game-drives after dark or at dawn are often a real highlight, you can see endless stars and you’re also likely to encounter a whole range of nocturnal species: leopard, porcupine, hyena and countless owl species.
Guided Bush Walks (Included in rate)
Walking in the bush gives you the opportunity to experience Africa from the ground, in the safe hands of our professional guide. The small details that are overlooked on game drives, become more apparent from the slower pace of being on foot. The amazing engineering skills involved in the creation of a termite mound, for instance. Bird calls, tracks, insects, plants, geology, the thrilling sight of spotting big game at eye level; everything takes on more significance and you gain a much deeper understanding of your environment. It can also be fun playing detective to try and work out which creature might have made the tracks in the sand, try guess the types of animal dung and if you’re really brave engaging in the local sport of impala dung spitting!
