Just Safari / Couples Safari:
If you are not so much in to photography and just want to enjoy and experience wilderness, nature and animals, you will have the option of going on to a second independent vehicle. This is a great alternative for couples who just want to experience the African bush with all it has to offer. Or for couples that doesn’t share the same passion for photography and prefer to enjoy the whole beauty through their eyes instead of the lens, away from those who are trying to capture the shot of their lifetime. In this case we are able to accommodate up to 10 people.
