Day game drive
Game-spotting in Tsavo West
On safari from Saruni, Kenya

A game drive is an exploration of the wilderness, in search of wildlife. Ideally taking place in the cooler parts of the day, game drives take place in a specially adapted safari vehicle with a professional driver/guide.

Typically a game drive takes place in a custom-built safari vehicle (with either a pop-up top or open sides), which offers comfort, panoramic viewing, dedicated safari guide, optional refreshment on-board and radio-links for fast location of game.

The best time for wildlife viewing is 6.30am- 9.30 am and 3.30pm-6.30pm; this is due to the fact that most of the animals retire to the shade to rest during the middle (hottest) part of the day.

For best viewing, the trick is not to look AT the bush but THROUGH it. Focus your eyes at mid-range distance, look under bushes and into the shadows, and watch out for those subtle changes in colour and continuity that may indicate the presence of wildlife.

What you will need
Ideally you should be equipped with: binoculars, guide book on birds and animals, drinking water, sunglasses, sunhat and sunscreen.
