Game Drives

Experience Africa's abundant wildlife on morning and afternoon game drives with expert game rangers and trackers. Guest safety is paramount. To view game is to lose yourself in a powerful and startling drama.

To view game is to lose yourself in a powerful and startling drama. During a game viewing excursion, your senses sharpen, excitement grows, you draw close to the most remarkable animals as they hunt, play and sleep.

Game drives at Royal Malewane are tailored to suit your interests, so you can track your favourite animal or see the birds, flowers or trees that you love most. To engage with the landscape even more intimately, explore the bush on foot with our expert guides and trackers at your side.

Game drives at dawn and dusk form the basic rhythm of the day, and you’ll find that to be out in the fresh air as the sun rises and sets is to be realigned with a pattern of deep and ancient significance. In addition, no matter what the time of year, each season has something special to offer in terms of game viewing and game drives. The dry, gold-brown winter bush makes for excellent sightings but the lush green foliage of the summer months brings with it migrant birds and new-born animals. Embrace the unique opportunities of the moment, for nature is generous in her bounty.

A typical game drive lasts for three to four hours and all game drives are included in our rates.

Specialist Safari Vehicles

The game drive vehicles at Royal Malewane seat only 6 guests in order to optimise each guest’s game viewing experience and comfort affording ample space for photographic equipment (and some refreshments of course).

Top of the range, specialised Toyota Land Cruisers ensure that guests can go off road safely in search of the ultimate wildlife sightings no matter what the conditions.

All our rangers are specially trained in vehicle handling and maintenance. There is a special ‘trackers seat’ fitted to the front of the vehicle.

Private Vehicles

Although we only put a maximum of six guests on each vehicle, there may be other guests on the same game drive as you depending on the size of your party.

Speak to our reservations team about booking a private vehicle for your visit. Private vehicles cannot be guaranteed and are subject to availability. If staying in the Luxury Suites, there is an additional charge for private vehicles.

In the Royal Suites and Africa House however, private vehicles and services are guaranteed and are included in the rates.
