Kruger Park & Sabi Sand Combo Safari

Night Game Drive


Kruger Park

Each evening from almost every camp in the Kruger Park the South African National Parks provide 'on road' night game viewing drives in 20-seat open sided vehicles. A SANParks game ranger armed with a .458 rifle conducts the night game drives.

The night game drive departs from camp at 18.00hrs and last for approx three hours. You may have a chance of using one of the three spotlights on the vehicle.

It is your opportunity to see some nocturnal wildlife in the Kruger Park. The night game drives are a very enjoyable experience.

Sabi Sands

At the end of the afternoon game drive, as the sun starts to set the Land Rover stops in the middle of the bush. You are allowed to jump off the Land Rover to have a stretch, a call of nature and to enjoy 'sun downers' (drinks). A table is set up with a selection of drinks - beer, wine, spirits and soft drinks. Small snacks are also offered.

During the night drives your tracker uses a powerful spotlight, swinging it constantly left and right, searching for the nocturnal animals.

When a pride of Lions are found, we will follow the pride through the bush, keeping close to them, waiting and hoping for an opportunity to occur which results in you seeing the pride in action, bringing down suitable prey.

Imagine! Safely sitting in a Land Rover in the middle of the South African bush only a few metres away from a pride of Lions on a fresh Zebra kill!



Kruger Park night game drives are included on 2nd night on the 4 Day Combo Safari (Option A) & 5 Day Combo Safari. There is just not enough time to include a night drive on the 3 Day Combo Safari and the 4 Day Combo Safari (Option B) as you only have the one night, the first night, in the Kruger Park.

Children under 8 are not always allowed on night drives in Kruger Park. If you still want to experience a night drive your Safari Ranger will of course look after your children at camp. It's not a problem at all and we provide this service all the time.

Probably the very best safari experience in South Africa.
