Guided Open Safari Vehicle game drives
To see a Lion, Leopard or any of the other big cats right next to you is really an experience that comes second to none. Your professional guide will put you in the best positions to experience large game viewing at its best.
A normal game drive starts from Hazyview at around 05:00 am from any of the accommodation lodges, hotels or b&b's around Hazyview. The pick up is free and included in your rate.

Pre-Book your day visitors booking
Make sure on busy day's like school holidays and public holidays to book your pre-day visitors booking at R48 per adult and half price for children under 12 years old. You can book this on SANPARK.org or we can book it for you from our side.
Shops and restaurants are available.
In all the large rest camps there is shops and restaurants available to grab a meal as you go on safari during the day. Comfort stops are also done regularly to stretch those legs and let the children run wild for a bit.
Private game drives are the best why?
First of all no strangers on the vehicle, only your friends and family on the vehicle with your guide.
So this means you can stop longer at special sightings that you all enjoy and get personal attention from your guide. The guide will also focus on your needs as best a possible. So to have an open safari vehicle for your personal use for the game drive is really something else as y do not have to worry about driving yourself and getting lots or not getting out of the bush at gate closing time etc, etc. Your guide takes all the worries out of the driving and you can focus on the animals in the African bush.
