The best time to enjoy game viewing is in the early morning and late afternoon as most animals retreat to the shade to rest during the heat of the day.
Having spent the morning exploring the surrounding wilderness in search of Botswana’s hidden treasures, you will return to camp for a hearty brunch. consisting of eggs, bacon, fried tomato, freshly baked bread on the open camp fire, and some refreshing fruit juice.
Just as animals retreat to escape the heat of midday, so will you. This is the time to enjoy reading, chatting, relaxing or taking a siesta.
Afternoon tea will be served before heading out again into the wilderness as the animals awaken from their resting places. As the day draws to an end, one can only marvel at the sheer splendour of African sunsets, and toast the wonders of nature with a gin and tonic, wine, beer or soft drinks.
On your return to camp, enjoy a hot shower under the starry night sky when lanterns and candles are lit, and dinner is served after the days exciting events and excitements. You can gather around the warmth of the crackling campfire under the African night sky with the bush as the backdrop to end a perfect day when one can indulge in some superb dessert wines for a nightcap after which you can retreat to the comfort of your tent where you can fall asleep to the calls of the African wild.
