At lodges in the private reserves, your guides are passionate about wildlife and are in contact with the other vehicles on game drives, greatly increasing your chances of finding the wildlife that you want to see. Vehicles in the private game reserves may also leave the road to follow animals into the bush and provide opportunities to witness behaviour and interactions you might not see otherwise. Night drives (Your afternoon drive will be partially in daylight and partially at night) in the private game reserves are also exceptionally good opportunities to spot game not usually seen during the day.

Some of the game viewed are herds of buffalo, elephant, giraffe, wildebeest, impala, waterbuck, warthog, porcupine and much, much more. Lion, white lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dog and hyena complete the picture. Birding is quite spectacular, especially during spring and summer when the migrants breed.


Walking safaris are not included in our rates, they are subject to availability and have to be booked in advance. Guests on a walking activity must be able to walk in the wilderness for periods of about 3 hours. It is the sole responsibility of guests to advise Baobab Ridge of any health issues such as epilepsy, allergic reactions, asthma and so forth. The age limit is 16 years of age.


These can be arranged with us in Winter only. Guests pay for and help with the event in a large conservation area. Rhino are darted, ear-notched, microchipped and DNA samples are collected for the national data bank. In this way guests can contribute to the fight for our rhino!
