Day Safari

day-safari-leopardIf you have  a day to spare, we invite you on a perfect day’s adventure.  Commencing at 9:30am at the Mwanga reception (within the Bally Vaughan Bird and Game Sanctuary) you will be welcomed by a guide and taken on a conducted tour of the Wild Animal Orphanage.  There you will be privileged to see lion, leopard, hyena, serval cats, meercat and the rare and endangered blue duiker as well as crocodiles and many nocturnal animals.  The Sanctuary is also a haven for exotic and indigenous birds.

day-safari-elephant-rideAfter tea on a granite kopje with a spectacular view of the Elephant Sanctuary Dam, comes the highlight of your day …. A ride on an African Elephant!  Don’t forget your camera to record your ride on the world’s largest land mammal.

Next you will be driven down to the Mubvinsi River, where you will board on of our 18 foot Canadian canoes (which are extremely stable!).  A leisurely and soul enriching time is spent gliding down the peaceful waterways and soaking in the tranquillity of hilly covered bays, darting kingfishers and soaring fish eagles.  Numerous species of waterfowl and some game line the shores.  A delightful lunch will be served at Mwanga Lodge.

You will then board an open game-viewing vehicle for a game drive and personalised bush experience.  Game you may see includes buffalo, eland, sable, blesbok, wildebeest, zebra, warthog and many species of the smaller antelope.  A visit to our magnificent, pure Masai Mara lions in their huge enclosures is unforgettable.  The Safari ends at approximately 4:30pm.  A perfect day and the experience of a life time!
