Your day is at leisure to enjoy as you please. You could choose a spot in the comfy main lounge and bar area or on the game viewing deck, alternately there is the inviting pool and sun deck. Following afternoon tea, the evening game drive departs. Your ranger will stop along the way for sundowners at a scenic setting and on your return journey, you could spot the movement of the nocturnal game.
