Taking a game drive can be a rewarding experience, especially if you get to spot the Big 5. Chris Ovens, manager at Sibuya Game Reserve shares 5 tips for a successful game drive.
Go with an open mind
If you think you can spot all members of the big 5 on a single game drive, think again! “Never try to predict the animals you will see on a game drive, rather just enjoy the experience. The Big 5 is not the only animals in the wild. There are hundreds of animal and bird species at a reserve, each with their own unique story,” said Ovens.
Carry a pair of binoculars
If you do not have a camera that zooms then carry along a pair of binoculars for better viewing of the animals. Ovens said guests should ask their game ranger to lend them one if you they do not have a pair.
