Articles: Game Drives

Game drives allow you to catch a glimpse of the true spirit of Africa.

Africa – the land of the wild. A continent where nature has been left mainly untouched in many areas and where the wildlife roams the plains majestically. South Africa in particular has been blessed with a very diverse landscape and a rich abundance of animals. This is then also why you will find a large number of world-class game farms and safari parks in South Africa. No African holiday will be complete without visiting one of these amazing places and getting close to nature on one of the many different game drives they offer.

The Kruger National Park is one of the most well-known game reserves in the world, and righteously so. The park boasts the largest selection of mammals compared to any reserve on the African continent at 147 species. This includes, of course, the Big Five – the lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhinoceros. You will also find these animals at the Pilanesberg Game Reserve. Smaller, but by no means less spectacular, this reserve is situated in an ancient volcanic crater, next to the Sun City resort. Both these parks offer unforgettable game drives to their visitors.

If you would like to see nature in all its glory, but for a shorter visit, you can always go to the De Wildt Centre or the Lion Safari Park. Both these are within close vicinity of the Johannesburg area and feature a large selection of animals in their natural habitat. Here you will even have the chance to pet a lion cub and feed a giraffe!
