GAME DRIVES

The Plumari Africa Game Reserve, in which Askari Lodge is situated, comprises a pristine malaria free wilderness area of over 3000 hectares. The Reserve boasts an amazing natural African bushveld with an abundance of flora, fauna, birdlife and wildlife.

Two game drives, each approximately 3 hours in duration, are scheduled daily.

Late afternoon drives will involve a sundowner, with a fantastic view towards the end of the drive.

Lodge guests are requested to complete the Game Drive Booking form (available at Reception), and indicate preferred drink for their sundowner. All other guests are requested to book game drives in advance by contacting us or by requesting a quotation online.

Booking is essential - very seldom are we able to accommodate walk-in guests for our game drives. Kindly also note that game drives leave at the scheduled times, indicated below, and late arrivals, as much as we would like to accommodate them, will forfeit monies paid. (See Game Drive Terms and Conditions).

Game Drive Rates
Big 5 Game Drives which includes our lions - R 295.00 per preson

Game Drive Times
Game drives are scheduled for the best viewing times during the early morning and late afternoon. Between these periods it is usually too hot, and the animals seek shelter from the sun in heavily bushed areas, thus minimal sightings take place.
