Join on a Night Drive Safari into South Africa's first World Heritage site iSimangaliso Wetland Park
A Night Drive Safari is a game drive that operates after dark, with powerful spotlights. This 3 hour safari on a Open Game Drive Safari Vehicle offers one a chance of witnessing the elusive Leopard, Giraffe, Buffalo, Elephants, Hippo’s grazing, Chameleons and so much more. The advantage of a night drive is that they provide access to nocturnal species that are rarely seen during the day, such as Hippo, Bush Babies, Chameleon’s, Aardvarks and Leopard are also more active after dark, and there is a greater probability of seeing them hunt at night. Night Drive Safaris are ever so popular with the safari-goers to take part in. A night drive safari has a unique and exciting atmosphere; different types of animals (nocturnal) are active at night, from the big cats to smaller mammals. With varying behaviour nocturnal animals are bolder at night and shy during the day this increases your chances of witnessing that elusive Leopard. Exhilarating to sit in the middle of a herd of elephants in the moonlight or the thunder pounding sound of buffalo hooves in the darkness is also quite a rush.
