With total and utter immersion in the astonishing diversity of local animal and birdlife, our expert guides generously share a lifetime’s knowledge of the local flora and fauna.
We have a flexible approach to our game drives. There is always an early start option for those eager to be the first up and out to find any predators on the move or still on the hunt from the night before, or there is a later departure for those who want to rather ease into the day with an early morning yoga or gym session or just a sleep-in before going out.
Our guides will drive you for mile upon mile in our special fleet of purpose-built 4x4 vehicles, during which you’ll likely see the legendarily shy sitatunga and red lechwe antelope. The greater area is also home to buffalo and hyena, while the big cat population includes lions and leopards. All these mammals roam from island to island in their hunt for food, and to encounter them in their natural home as they go on their travels is truly extraordinary.
Elephants are drawn to the many inland shorelines where they can keep cool, while dozens of smaller native animals, as well as crocodiles, add to the magical biodiversity for you to observe.
