Game Drives (guided or self drive) and Bush Walks
Must do!...Explore the Park with an experienced and passionate guide in an open safari vehicle. You will learn so much! We strongly recommend going in with a guide before you self drive, to learn from that experience. We also strongly recommend booking onto a game drive at times of public holiday to avoid the need to pre book advance day passes to be sure to get in for a self drive.
The start times for each activity vary according to the season. Please carefully note start and end location and times for each activity. Private game drives (full or half day) are usually picked up/dropped off at Trees Too. For others you must self drive to the start/end point.
NB. Once booked you are committed to the activity!
Please reconfirm prices prior to booking an activity as operators change their prices at different times of the year. Also please note that start/finish times vary according to the season.

You can do this by creating an account on www.sanparks.org, then follow the instructions. Not needed if you are on a guided game drive or other Park activity.
