Around mid to late morning guests return to camp for a delicious “bush brunch” and a siesta getting an opportunity to read rest or take a refreshing shower.
When the day starts to cool off another afternoon game drive follows afternoon tea, and good sightings are revisited or areas as yet unexplored are visited.
