Departing from the OR Tambo Airport by 06:30, you will be transferred to the Greenfire Game Lodge.

Arriving at the Lodge you are checked into your rooms and have time to freshen up before your afternoon/sunset safari drive where you will sip a sundowner as you watch the sky turn from the brilliance of an African sunset to a bright band of stars.
You head back to the lodge after the drive where dinner in the open-air boma or thatched dining room will be waiting for you.


The day starts with an early wake-up call between 5:00 am and 5:30 am. Tea, coffee and rusks are enjoyed together before heading out at first light. While seeing big game is always exhilarating, there are many other smaller species that are also captivating, and birding enthusiasts will be delighted at the approximately 350 species of birds recorded on the reserve. Halfway through the game drive, there’s a stop for hot drinks and snacks, before returning to the lodge at around 9:00 am for a full breakfast.

Throughout the day, it’s likely you will see wildlife around the lodge – nyala antelope and vervet monkeys are frequent visitors, though seeing some of the Big Five is also not uncommon.

At around 3:30 pm, everyone gathers for the afternoon game drive through the reserve. En route, you’ll stop for a sundowner drink and will have a chance to stretch your legs as you watch the sun set over the distant peaks of the Drakensberg mountains.

As darkness falls, the nocturnal animals of the bush come out. The skilled tracker will scan the landscape using a spotlight, which illuminates animals’ eyes. A variety of completely different species can be seen on the night drive back to the lodge. Arrival is at the lodge is usually around 7:00 pm, allowing time to freshen up before enjoying a sumptuous dinner.


Today your safari trip comes to an end. However, there is still an exciting morning safari game drive planned. You will get a wakeup call from your guide and make your way down to the dining area for tea and coffee which will be served with biscuits before departing on your morning adventure. You will have the opportunity to spot animals that have eluded you thus far. Arriving back at the camp after the safari drive, you enjoy breakfast then check-out from your rooms and being transfered back to the OR Tambo Airport in Johannesburg, arriving between 17:00 - 18:00.
