Dawn Chorus and Morning Game Drive
The day begins at first light with a chorus of bird calls. A steaming cup of coffee warms your hands as you set out on a morning game drive.

Your guide points out animal tracks, medicinal plants, and the little five — a delightful contrast to the big game you’ve been admiring from the vehicle.
By midday, you’re at the Shire River, a lifeblood for the reserve’s inhabitants. Crocodiles bask on the banks, and hippos snort in the waters. Lunch is served in a shaded spot with a view of the river, a tranquil pause in your day of adventure.
