These trips last for approximately 6 hours and follow a route through the Andersson Gate to Okaukuejo and further on to various waterholes in a circular route back to Okaukuejo. There is also a stop-over at "Olifant’s Bad" where guests are treated to light refreshments prepared by our gourmet kitchen and have the opportunity to 'stretch their legs' before continuing back to Okaukuejo.
Afternoon drives depart at 14h00 and follow the same route. Depending on the road-accessabilty, guides can suggest and follow alternative routes to ensure maximum exposure to the animals for the guests.
Should vehicles be available, full-day trips can also be arranged. The guides driving these vehicles have extensive knowledge of the area and animals and give a "running commentary" as the trips proceed .
