Day 3 Entabeni Game Reserve

Put your photography skills to the test

After breakfast join a talk on photography, then head out on a bush walk where you can start putting your newly learned skills into practice. Learn about the traditional methods of surviving in the African bush on this interesting survival-themed walk. Your knowledgeable guide will show you how to read the land in the same way as the indigenous tribes, and reveal how to work with nature and its resources.

Day 4 Entabeni Game Reserve

Eastern Cape giant cycad in South Africa

Spend the morning at leisure, then enjoy lunch at the Boekenhout Water Pools, followed by a cycad walk. Recognised by their stout trunks and crown of palm-like leaves, cycad plants have changed very little since the Jurassic period. The species is now under threat due to habitat destruction and the removal of plants from the wild. You will see some of the specimens in Entabeni and learn how they are being protected. An afternoon game drive offers the chance to spot some of the reserve’s wildlife. You’ll be led by expert rangers and travel in open-air safari vehicles which offer great viewing positions. B, L, D

Enjoy an evening game drive

Spend today at leisure, with a picnic lunch at Olienhout. After dinner, discover the southern hemisphere’s night sky during a stargazing experience. The open-air observatory is equipped with large commercial telescope and a ‘star ranger’ on hand to guide you. Afterwards, join an evening game drive – dusk is one of the optimum times for wildlife spotting. B, L, D

This morning is free to spend at leisure. After lunch take a game drive at the Wildlife Centre for Endangered Species, where you’ll have the chance to see mythical white lions.

Rhino grazing at Entabeni Game Reserve
