Big Five Game Drive

Home/Safari/Big Five Game Drive

Game drive in South Africa

In an open vehicle driving through a big five game reserve spotting wildlife and experience  the South African bush, that’s is the idea of a Game Drive! A game drive is also called a night safari. A game drive is an excellent way to see Africa’s “Big Five” – Lion, Elephant, Buffalo, Rhino and leopard – experience the wildlife and come close with the most fantastic  animals! Experience a real South African safari with a game drive. The guided ranger and tracker inform you during your drive about the animals, birds and reptiles, and learn who to spot them! You will experience the animals in there own habitat by daylight and by night. This combination makes a night safari unique.

“A game drive. A true African experience..”

The night safaris begins with a beautiful South African sunset, so you can enjoy  a sundowner in the African Bush. When night falls, the search of Africa’s most unusual nocturnal animals continues. After the game drive plenty South African food will be served, during a fantastic dinner. This exiting safari-experience is a must do during your stay in South Africa!
During your stay in Villa Blaaskans there a plenty opportunities to go on a game drive/night safari. If you want to go on a safari by yourself, it is possible to go through the famous Kruger Park. Or take a walk on Zandspruit Estate, and experience the bush with his wildlife.

Game Drive Kapama Game Reserve:

The Kapama Private Game Reserve (Kapama) is a 15-minute drive from Villa Blaaskans. Spread across 13,000 acres, Kapama is certainly the largest private game reserve in the direct region. During your stay at the villa, it is possible to book an night safari with dinner through Kapama. Considering that you go in an open vehicle in search of the Big Five, and shall experience the animals and nature from very close, this trip is really recommended. An experienced ranger and a specially trained spotter will accompany you, and can tell you a lot about the nature and the animals.

The Klaserie River flows through this reserve and forms suitable living conditions for the animals, making it possible to see the Big Five. To finish off, you will be served a hearty South-African dinner at the riverbed, where you can talk to the rangers and others about your safari experience. You can also on safari by yourself through the Kruger National Park or around Villa Blaaskans on Zandspruit Estate.

Game Drive The Safari Company:

Going with an old safari truck during sunset across (Greater) Kruger Park to look for wildlife and finishing off with a braai at a lake under the South African stars!

In the afternoon you will be expected at The Safari Company, located on the Elephant River, after which you will be taken in an old safari truck. During the safari, you will stop halfway at a lake for a drink or snack. Then the game drive in the dusk/dark continues, and you arrive at a hearty and ready braai awaiting you next to a lake. At this lake there are often wild animals to be seen, such as buffalos and lions, so you may get a chance to admire these animals. Of course there are plenty of rangers present to ensure your safety. After the braai you will return to the starting point.
