After-dinner night drive, with the accompanying sounds of barking geckos, insect shrills, and larger animal calls to break the silence.

Walk to our re-created cultural village to visit the Bushman crafters at work. You may join young Bushmen demonstrating their traditional games and purchase traditional crafts hanging from the branches of the tree under which the crafters sit at work. There are only 8 antelope species, but 19 carnivores, including the famous black-maned lion. These lions have adapted to the extreme conditions, and kill a far higher proportion of small game than lions in other parts of Africa.
