Safaris at Kings Camp
Morning and afternoon-evening game drives are the main safaris that are offered at Kings Camp. The safaris are conducted in open 4x4 vehicles guided by rangers that have over time and through studies developed good bush knowledge. The morning game drive safaris is typically broken up bya tea & coffee session somewhere in the bush and similarly the afternoon - evening safaris are interrupted only by a cold beverage to be enjoyed whilst the sun sets.
Guided walking safaris are offered but on a low key basis. These take place by prior arrangement with your ranger and after breakfast, that follows the morning game drive safari. These short walking safaris allow guests to experience another side of the bush that is often missed while on a game drive vehicle. Things like tracks, smells, sounds, birds and much more are the highlights.
