We will meet at the prearrange starting point at 5am (6am Winter) for an introduction to the team and run briefing.
We always try and set out just after sunrise (Summer 5:30am and Winter 6:30am) as we do not want to be running in the dark or the heat for that matter.
The team will take you along single track, game paths and game drive roads. These experiences are about encountering the many species of animals that we have in our area, so keep your eyes peeled for spoor and the things that leave the spoor. We may be lucky enough to come across Giraffe, Leopard or Even Wild Dog.
We return to the original starting point where you presented with a cold drink and we will say farewell and plan the next adventure!
