Day 7

Walking Safari | Spotlight Game Drivetasting

Let nature speak to you when you set out on foot in the early morning as Greg shows you the basics of tracking animals. A walking safari is a very different experience from being in a vehicle and lets you immerse yourself in your surrounds rather than being a mere observer. Enjoy a gourmet picnic in the wilderness then relax by the pool or in your private outdoor bath - keeping an eye out for herds of elephants by the river. Late in the afternoon climb into the open-air vehicle for your final afternoon safari. We will enjoy sundowners in the wilderness and return in the dark, turning the spotlight on to see more elusive nocturnal animals. Chefs will prepare an epicurean feast for your final night in South Africa with the option for entertainment by a local dance troupe.
