It’s different at night. It’s spooky, scary, surreal. Sounds and the moon guide your journey. You can hear buffalo munching nearby. Giraffe are silhouetted along the horizon. You may encounter a lion.
Nighttime game drives aren’t possible everywhere. They are a special treat, a showcase into the untold thrills of Africa’s savannah. The guide stops the vehicle and you listen. A spotlight illuminates the animals, many much closer than you can imagine.
Nighttime is when the predators prefer to hunt, so you may see a lion with a zebra carcass, or the piercing blue eyes of a leopard. And somewhere out in the wild you will come face to face with elephants and wild dogs. It will be a private nighttime game drive and you won’t see any other vehicles.
