DAY 2

Exploration Day

Our days will consist of exploring the Deception Valley and Passarge Pan in depth with morning and afternoon game drives daily. We rise early each morning, have a quick coffee and biscuit before heading out in search of game before they retreat deep into the bush to escape the heat of day. We return to camp in time for brunch, and then get to relax for a time before. We will leave camp again in the later afternoon, hoping to catch the animals as they begin moving towards water holes after the dry day. Each evening you get to enjoy the peace of camp, the delicious meals cooked by our Bush Chefs, and sitting around the camp fire listening to the sounds of the night. Read more

DAY 4

Trip to Piper Pan

Today we will move our camp to Piper’s Pan, and this is as far south as most people visit in this area. The road to get to Piper is badly corrugated and potholed, but the Pan itself is worth the drive. It is only a few kilometres wide, but is a beautiful piece of perfectly flat grass that is green when the rains come and dry gold without. Conservation of this area has provided us with a sanctuary that is still pure and untouched. Days will be spent in our Game Drive vehicles exploring this remote destination and viewing the fascinating wildlife. We will spend 2 nights in this beautiful area. Read more

DAY 5

Exploration Day

Piper's Pan is only a few kilometers across, but it's a stunning stretch of perfectly flat grass. In the rains it's green, and often covered with springbok and gemsbok. By as early as May, it has usually turned a beautiful gold, like a field of ripe barley. Enjoy morning and afternoon game drives.
