To broaden your experience of Africa take a night safari, after the day time creatures retreat to their sleeping quarters a whole host of nocturnal wildlife takes the stage.
Many of the private conservancies that our guests visit offer night safaris, this is a must if you get the chance. After supper hop back into your safari car and venture out in search of nocturnal animals. The sounds of the crickets can be deafening, the stars and moon far brighter than many other places on earth due to the lack of light pollution. If you are lucky you might see leopard, porcupine, aardvark or the curious hopping spring hare. Night jars often burst up into the air, caught in the headlights as they flee from their resting place on the sandy road. Driving into the wilderness, killing the engine and sitting in the quiet of the night with only the sound of chirping insects is a quite wonderful thing to do. Peer into the darkness, and search for shapes in the shadows. Your eagle eyed guide will amaze you with their knowledge and keen sense of hearing, they can read the bush as well by night as they can in the day.
