All safari activities are led by qualified guides who will educate and enlighten you in the secrets of the park. Game drives are conducted in open Land Rovers. Walking safaris are accompanied by an experienced and armed escort scout.

In general you will cover more ground on a game drive, and due to the fact you can get much closer to game in a vehicle there are better opportunities for photography.

Walking Safaris are a very different option, they bring you in touch with the wilderness and tend to focus more on the minutiae of the park and the eco-system. It is a truly unforgettable experience striding out in country where you are on the same footing as a lion or elephant.
