You’ll start with game drives, enjoying picnic lunches, and later return to the camp for a short rest. In the afternoon, embark on a boat safari, an excellent chance to see wildlife at the water’s edge and get close to bird colonies, hippos, and crocodiles. The day ends with relaxation at a campfire bonfire, followed by dinner and an overnight stay.
