The Bush at night
A day on safari is a wonderful thing, but so is what happens when the sun sets. The cares of mankind shift perspective as night falls, with infinitely distant stars shining brilliantly onto nature’s darkened canvas, unspoiled by city lights. As the darkness deepens, sounds change and a new cast of creatures begin to roam and skulk. This is a world our ancestors knew and perhaps feared: for us, it is a heartfelt joy.
When the sun sets across, nature shuffles her deck, revealing new players and dramas under the moonlit skies.
One of the unexpected highlights of a safari is the night show. Our bush safaris take place into the deepest of jungles giving our guests crystal-clear views of spectacular constellations. This may not be the main reason our guests visit, but will always leave you in awe of the majesty of African skies.
A night game drive is a wonderful opportunity to spot predators and prey alike. The well regulated lights of our vehicles illuminate an unseen world, unknown even to experienced safari adventurers. Spotting the shy nocturnal creatures who scuttle, feed and fight their way through the Bush at night can be every bit as exotic and exciting as sighting larger mammals during the day.
Guests need only look up to discover another wonder – a night sky obscured by light pollution. Galaxies of stars fill vast skies, adding yet another unexpected and rare dimension to life in the Bush.
