Night Game Drives

The LUMO game drive experience – Day game drive

LUMO Community Wildlife Conservancy offers optimum game-driving experiences. Our custom-built open-sided safari vehicle offers comfort, panoramic viewing, dedicated safari guides and refreshments for fun location of game. Game drives take place at 6.30 am, arriving back in time for breakfast and after tea at 4pm. They can also be timed to coincide with sundowners in the bush.

A glimpse into the nocturnal theatre of the wild – Night game drive

A uniquely specialised activity, which is usually not permitted within the boundaries of the national parks and reserves, a night game drive is the ultimate safari luxury. Leaving the lodge either before or after dinner, you will be provided with warm ‘shukas’ (Maasai wraps); before setting off to discover the creatures of the night. This is the exclusive domain of hunters such as lions and leopards, and the only time when you may catch a glimpse of such elusive nocturnal creatures as aardvark and Lumo’s melanistic serval cat.

Your vehicle will also be equipped with a powerful hand-held lamp, which can be used to sweep the bush for sightings. Children over 5 years of age are welcome and really enjoy this exciting glimpse of what happens when they are usually in bed.
