General Itinerary

Your day will start after breakfast. Breakfast and dinner are provided at the lodge or camp. A box lunch is also provided daily to be eaten at a designated lunch spot in the parks. You will drive to the park for the day and spend as much time as possible on game drive. You can coordinate the day's activities with your safari guide. The national parks close at 18:00pm, so all game drives are completed by that time.
