For our organized driving safaris, the group size can range from 4 participants to (almost) any number, but in order to ensure that you have the most rewarding experience, all drives are made in small groups with of no more than 7 participants. This facilitates animal sightings and allows your driver guides to adapt the game drives to focus on your personal favourites. After the game drives, all vehicles will return to the same hotel, where all the participants of the group will reunite and stay overnight.
