Health and beauty spas are a popular feature in luxury safari lodges. You can spend your afternoons being pampered in a beautiful setting with beautiful views.

Quad Bikes – A quad bike is a great way to get around in rough terrain. Quad bike tours are led by knowledgeable guides and are suitable for even inexperienced riders. Experience the rush of racing through breathtaking scenery with the wind in your face.

Archery – Try out this ancient sport. Archery is a sport that requires accuracy and focus. The guides will show you how to maximise the power of the bow.

Birding Safaris – To believe the diversity of birdlife in Southern Africa, you must see it for yourself. Bring binoculars and a camera to see some of the over 300 bird species found in the Pilanesberg Game Reserve. The large raptors are fascinating, but the detail and colour of the smaller species are equally so.

Photographic Safaris – The Big 5 were once the most dangerous and prestigious species to hunt. Wildlife photography, on the other hand, has long been more popular than game hunting. Game vehicles of today will be specifically designed to capture African animals. Not only are the rangers and guides knowledgeable about the fauna and flora, but they are also avid photographers who are always eager to assist you in capturing the perfect shot.

Tribal Dancing – The combination of movement and music appeals to the human soul on a very basic level. Immerse yourself in this uplifting aspect of traditional African culture by learning to move to traditional African rhythms.

While game drives and bush walks are not always suitable for young children, many lodges have playgrounds or educational activities designed specifically for them. Young safari enthusiasts will learn about Southern Africa’s fauna and flora in a fun and educational way.

Tennis is an excellent way to exercise in between game drives. Spend a few sets working up a sweat with friends or other guests, then cool off in the pool.
