Your morning will begin with a flurry of excitement and activity as you set off for your game drive at the crack of dawn, after your first cup of morning tea or coffee and pre-breakfast snack. You are likely to see lions in repose or on the hunt, a whole herd of buffalo or elephant grazing, and keeping a watchful eye on predators, rhinos making light work of the grass beneath their feet, the solitary leopard reclining on an anthill, and the even more reclusive cheetah stalking its prey on your game drive safaris. But, of course there are numerous species of antelope as well as zebra, giraffe, hippo and other fascinating animals to see too. Your driver will stop for you to enjoy your packed breakfast supplied by the lodge at a suitable and safe spot and later he will also stop at one for the rest camps where there are restaurants for you to have lunch. This will be wherever the drive has taken you as it varies according to sightings of the animals and as we do not know the cost in advance you will have to pay for this one lunch. But it should not cost more than ZAR150.00 per person at most.
After your game drive and returning to Kwa Madwala, you can spend the rest of the day at leisure, admiring the many images you have shot on your safari game drive. But you might also be able to fit in a night drive in the small reserve around Kwa Madwala before or after dinner.
