What would a bushveld adventure be without a game drive? Mulati Safari Camp’s fully inclusive tariff includes two daily game drives which are headed by a skilled, experienced ranger or tracker in order to give guests a better chance of viewing the camp’s wildlife up close and personal.
Game drives are best at dawn and dusk and at Mulati Safari Camp both these options are available.
Morning drives start before sunrise when guests gather for light morning refreshments before heading out to the buffalo and sable breeding project. While driving to the project’s basecamp, guests are likely to come across numerous other game en-route. The two-hour game drive is briefly interrupted with a halfway stop where guests get to enjoy a warm drink before heading back to the main camp for a scrumptious, African-style breakfast.
The night drive starts shortly before sun set with guests convening at the main camp before heading out, while sipping sundowners en-route. Although game activity is usually bustling at this time of day, and a delight to see and experience, an added spectacle is watching the sun go down over the majestical Murchinson Mountain range from a specially-located sun deck, which is fittingly situated in one of Cottondale Farm’s characteristical rocky hills.
As darkness descends, the game viewing vehicle leisurely starts to make its way to the main camp while the professional tracker uses the on-board spotlight to pick out the glinting eyes of nocturnal animals.
We are 50km away from the world famous Kruger National Park.
