Your best chance of seeing large herds of buffalo and predators in their natural habitat is on a game drive. Morning safari outings are the most productive, and here they start the drives from a different spot on the bank of the river each time, ensuring that you get to explore different areas. A short river cruise with a steaming cup of coffee and some delicious morning bakes will take you downstream by boat to your guide. During the night drives, you have a good chance of spotting the smaller nocturnal felines, porcupines, hyena, honey badgers and the odd bush baby.
