Summer safari time change October 2018

Spring is in the air and summer is fast on its way to full bloom in the Lowveld!

This means an adjustment needs to be made to both our Sunrise Safari and Sunset Safari scheduled times. In order to make sure you experience the best of what the African wild has to offer we need to be out and about exploring the wilderness at the best possible time. This means when your favourite characters as well as all the other animals are at their most active in the early mornings and late afternoons.

As of 15 October 2018 the Sunrise Safari will begin 30 minutes earlier while the Sunset Safari will head out 30 minutes later. Don’t miss a second of all the wild action of both the Sabi Sand South Africa, and the Mara Triangle conservancy in Kenya. We can’t wait to have you aboard!

    if the sunise safari starts at 23:30 EST and ends at 2:00…that’s not a 3 hour drive…only 2 and half hours. Is the new start time 23:00 EST? Current drive starts at 23:30…a half hour earlier is 23:00.

    Don’t forget that Daylight Savings Time ends on November 4th. That will mean another change in SL times by 1 hour.
