Night Drives

Night Drives: Africa After Dark

Night drives are often possible and interesting because you are specifically seeking out nocturnal species which you are unlikely to see during the day. Your guide, or his ‘spotter’, will use a powerful spotlight to find the animals. The animals are located by the reflection of their eyes, and whilst the quality of viewing and photographical opportunities may be more limited at night, the search can be exciting and night drives do throw up some really rare and unique sightings. Night drives are not always possible as many National Parks and Game Reserves do not permit them.

Our specialist knowledge and experience allow us to arrange holidays that include a wide variety of specific interests. Some of the subjects we are able to cover include specific photography tours, wild flowers and botany, dendrology, lepidoptera, archaeology, historical tours and battlefields, wine farms and wine-tasting, rail journeys, golf and health spas. Please speak to us and let us know your specialist interest.
