No stay in the African bush is complete without intensive game viewing excursions. From walking safaris to game drives, the entire ecosystem is explored. Guests can encounter wildlife in its most natural form as they navigate their way across the landscapes alongside trained guides, rangers and trackers. Specialized activities at Thornybush Private Game Reserve in South Africa provide guests with options for viewing game along the pathways in walking safaris and the majestic species in game drives. Open 4x4 safari vehicles are used for the game drives hosted by trained and experienced guides, trackers and rangers. The open vehicles allow safari-goers to witness unfiltered views of their surroundings and are an opportune time to capture memories on film.

Daily Game DrivesThe harsh African climate is avoided by both the daily game drives and the resident wildlife, which become active during the early morning and late afternoon of each day. Game drives usually take place twice daily, in search of the awakening life and then later as the predators prepare to hunt for prey.
Animal trackers are often present on the drives and share their knowledge on studying the spoor as well as other natural elements to determine the presence of nearby wildlife. Guests are included in the tracking process and the acquired skills can be used in future safaris.
