Our BUSH LOVER SAFARI...
...not only for adventurous people!!
Our unique “Bush-Lover Safari” is an extension of the “Classic Safari”
designed for more adventurous and active guests that are physically fit to go
on guided walks in the bushveld terrain and have a keen interest in wildlife
and developing their bush skills like tracking, survival and orientation.
The bush mornings starts at dawn with tea and coffee before we take you on
a 4 x 4 Game Drives to find tracks and signs left over during the night and early
morningby our resident wildlife. When we find interesting indications, we stop the
vehicle and touch the real Africa on foot. There is no better way to get a look at the
many smaller things in the wilderness.
During these daily walks with your experienced and armed trails-guide you will recognise, how your senses re-awake and you start to relay on smell, hearing, and eye sight in a different and often unknown environment. You will find a whole new world of animals, insects, plants, birds, tracks and even dung telling you a story.
We teach you essential bush skills like tracking and signs of animals, navigation and orientation, finding water and food, how to approach dangerous game on foot and much more.
This experience will also give you the unique chance to spend one night in the middle of the bush under the African sky, when we take you on a sleep-out under the stars. You will learn how to prepare dinner on the open fire. We show you the local edible plants and tell you about medical uses of trees and plants and traditional beliefs in the area.
The “Bush Lover Safari” trails are planned in the cooler mornings as a half-day activity. You will spend the late afternoon and evenings the same way than our “classic safari” usually on game drive. During this adventure you will be accommodated in our exclusive tended camp enjoying the bush in its best way.
Our “Bush Lover Safari” is available no matter what time of year, each season has something special to offer in terms of game viewing and game drives. We offer this exclusive experience during special weeks throughout the year; please contact us directly for more information, dates and rates. (This safari is also available for private groups or families and the camp will be booked out on an exclusive base ensuring complete privacy.)
Claudia Schnell's safari experience is excellent! Excellent accommodations, excellent food, excellent wildlife safaris! As a professional wildlife photographer, I've spent months at a time in Africa and been on many dozens of African wildlife safaris in Kenya, Tanzania, and South Africa. However, of all of my safaris, by far my most favorite place to have gone on safari was with Claudia and Robin. Their professional knowledge of the bush, and African animal behavior is fabulous ...and they treat their guests in a personable manner that you just won't find on other safaris. And also marvelous is the fact that you'll never be rushed from "place-to-place" as you'll find happens on most other safari's. If you see something that you want to watch (such as lions eating a fresh kill, zebra's fighting, or baby elephants playing)...then no problem, you can stay and watch. Would I go back? Absolutely!
