As darkness spreads across the savannah, animals of the night rise from their daytime slumber and the hunt begins. Once the sun has set and night falls, the spotlights are switched on and your ranger guide will begin the hunt for Africa's night-time wildlife. The African bush comes alive as the temperature drops and smaller creatures venture out under the protection of darkness. In the quiet of the night, you can expect a different kind of Kruger safari experience than during the day. As you become accustomed to your dim surroundings, you’ll see smaller, more shy and rare creatures, not usually seen during the day.  No stops are made during your Kruger safari, but you are welcome to bring along a small cooler box with soft drinks if you wish.
