More Than Just Bowhunting At Bushmen Safaris
By: Bushmen Safaris

Bushmen Safaris is an ideal destination for more than just world-record trophy hunts. Many of our clients bring their non-hunting wife, family or friends as there are numerous activities for the non-hunters to do while the hunters are out in the bush. Here are some day trip options during your stay at Bushmen Safaris.

Vulture Restaurant
On every Wednesday and Saturday, food is dropped off at the Vulture Restaurant, where hundreds of endangered birds swoop down to take part in regular feeding frenzies. Common visitors include the White-Backed Vulture, the Cape Griffon Vulture and the Lappet-Faced Vulture, but some scarcer sightings have been recorded such as the Hooded Vulture and even the Ruppell’s Vulture. Patience is rewarded!

Game Drives
Game Drives are conducted twice daily in open vehicles. Morning drives give you the opportunity to wake up early and enjoy the cool, fresh part of the day. Animals are just starting to get active and this is the perfect time to get out the vehicle and identify some tracks you may want to follow. Encountering the elephants remain a special occasion while the mysterious hippo can often be found wallowing in a cool pool of water. If that is not enough feast your eyes on the activities of the blue wildebeest, warthog and baboon whose antics will keep you entertained for hours. At night, sharp-eyed visitors might encounter leopards, spotted and brown hyenas or even bat-eared foxes. The best part about the night drive is reconnecting with life and spending time looking at the endless Milky Way. Over fifty mammal species can be found.

Helicopter Flights
You can have the opportunity to experience the bushveld and its wildlife from a different view! With a Robinson R44 Helicopter, up to three guests, per flight, can enjoy the unique opportunity of a flight over South Africa’s beautiful bushveld.

Day Spa
The Wild Fig Day Spa is your oasis to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The spa offers a wide range of specialized treatments that have been specifically chosen to revitalize your body, rejuvenate your mind and invigorate your soul. From the moment you walk through the doors until the end of your treatment of choice, highly trained and experienced beauty therapists will pamper you. Our high level of service and attention to detail is captured in all our treatments that include: facials, massages, manicures and pedicures. The spa’s facilities include a flotation pool, steam room and a Jacuzzi.
