How to have a Successful Game Drive


Successful game viewing is what comes to our mind while planning for a safari. This article will provide you with some useful tips.

The main goal of a safari is to view as many wildlife as possible, but it requires some skills and characters.

Dry seasons are the best season to visit a conservation area.This is so because the vegetation is not dense and most of the wildlife will be easily spotted near water bodies.

Water bodies: Water is life and wildlife will always be drawn towards the water bodies from the lakes, rivers, water holes or even springs. It’s the best place to get an opportunity to witness a crocodile kill.

Patience. A game drive is never done in a rush if you are to enjoy a wide range of wildlife. Don’t rush through, give wildlife time to get out of their hiding places. Most of them will mostly hide as soon as they spot you so you have to find a way of not being detected first.

Avoid overcrowded places. Not only does it cause stress to wildlife, but it also denies you an opportunity to view more wildlife. Especially in their wild state. Minimize vehicle traffic.
