Game Drives

The experience of a lifetime – game drives at Sungulwane give you the opportunity to experience the natural beauty of Africa and see wildlife in their natural surroundings.

Our experienced guides share their knowledge and passion with you on twice daily game drives, bringing the flora and fauna to life; not only do you see sightings of Africa’s Big 5 but the other iconic species such as Giraffe, Zebra and Hippo.

When you book a private vehicle and specialist guide; safaris can be tailormade to suit you. Whether you want to focus on birds, photography, family safaris or take things a little slower to enjoy every aspect of this wild environment, each experience is unique.

Bush Walks

A bush walk offers a truly immersive experience, being on foot in a Big 5 reserve without the protection of a car. A guided bush walk gives you the opportunity to learn about tracks, flowers, insects and the smaller things you miss being on a vehicle.

Being able to smell and touch what is at your feet with possibility of observing wildlife to a very short distance. The thrill of not knowing what is around the next bend and surrounding yourself in nature is something we highly recommend.
