For half day safaris:
We will start morning safaris at 6:30 AM, to catch the golden hour. After the sun rises, we will have a bush breakfast in the wild at around 9:00 AM. Then continue our safari till 11 AM. After that, we will return to our accommodation for some rest and lunch. Then, again we will return for safari from 3:30 PM to 6:30 PM.
When we come back from our evening safaris at 6:30 PM, we can have a sit down and review our images together. We will discuss:
