Schedule Details

Make your way through the stunning bushveld scenery to Elephant Plains in time for orientation and lunch with the rest of the group. Shortly after eating we head out on our first game drive, ready and prepped for encounters with the local wildlife. In the late afternoon we take a break for sundowner drinks and snacks as the sun descends and casts long shadows and rich colors across the plains. On hand at all times is our expert photographer, who will help you get the most from the experience, offering advice on everything from camera settings to composition along the way. Returning to camp in the evening there’s chance to freshen up before heading to the bar for an aperitif, followed by a delicious dinner served in the open air boma, around a log fire.
The following days begin with tea, coffee and rusks served on the deck, before heading into the bush on the morning game drive. After traversing the reserve on the lookout for big game we return to Elephant Plains for a hearty South African breakfast. Each day after breakfast there is the opportunity to experience the natural environment from a new perspective, with guided bush walks that reveal the hidden secrets and tell-tale signs of the wildlife that inhabit the reserve. Having worked up and appetite on our walk we enjoy lunch before heading out once again on our afternoon game drive, as the animals awaken. Each day we stop for sundowners and snacks in the late afternoon, which offers us a chance to really appreciate the beauty of Sabi Sands, before continuing on with a spotlight in the fading light to seek out nocturnal animals. Back at camp a much-needed evening meal awaits us in the boma, followed by a comfortable bed to rest and refresh for the next day.
It’s the last chance for photo opportunities this morning on the final game drive of the trip, after which we will enjoy breakfast together before leaving Elephant Plains.
