Game Drives

The Cornerstone Of Every Safari

Game drives are without a doubt the highlight of any safari experience. Designed to take you to the heart of the action, game drives are what instill that sense of adventure and occasion that safari lovers can’t get enough of. Early in the morning, late in the evening and anything in between, there are always incredible wildlife sightings to be had, landscapes to be explored and special moments to be shared. We provide unlimited Game Drive miles, meaning that you could roam around the bush from dusk until dawn if you so chose.

Game drives usually take place inside the national parks where the wildlife is more concentrated. Private concessions also have a lot to offer in terms of wildlife sightings as they share the same ecosystems with the nearby national parks. Since the wildlife know no boundaries, they are free to roam around these vast habitats as they so please, allowing for great game viewing opportunities. Private concessions do not have to follow the strict national park regulations; one of the great advantages this offers is off-road game drives where the Safari vehicle can leave the beaten tracks and drive right up close to the animals. At Nila Expeditions the departure time, duration and intensity of a game drive on any given day is completely up to you and your personal preferences. 

Game drives are always carried out in the presence of a professional guide who’s main role is to drive the purpose-built safari vehicle, search for wildlife sightings and educate you on animal facts and behaviors. Professional safari guides are also responsible for carrying out various administration tasks, such as managing entry/exit documents for the national parks, assisting you with check-ins and check-outs at your chosen accommodation and coordinating your day to day activities during the course of your safari. The importance of the role that a professional guide plays in a safari is huge; having a well trained guide can make all the difference and enrich your entire safari experience. For this reason Nila Expeditions only works with the best trained guides available in each destination we offer.

You dictate the pace of your Safari. 

''Tanzania is home to Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Crater; and this fact alone makes a solid case for declaring it Africa’s best safari country. But, of course, there’s much more that just these two places. Most visitors stick to the famed Northern Circuit – and why not? Besides the aforementioned destinations, with their unbelievable density of Big Five species and sublime beauty, this amazing region around the gateway city of Arusha also includes Tarangire (huge dry season herds) and Lake Manyara (flamingos, tree-climbing lions and Rift Valley scenery) national parks which are awesome in their own right...''
