Night Game Drive


About Night Game Drive Safari in Tanzania

While many associate African safaris with sun-drenched wildlife scenes, the nighttime bush unveils a completely different perspective. Night game drives in Tanzania’s savannas and parks offer a distinct opportunity to witness nocturnal animals and behaviors. As the sun sets, a diverse array of wildlife stirs to life under the cover of darkness.

Guided night drives employ spotlights to locate animals through eyeshine and thermal imaging cameras to detect body heat. During these drives, you may come across hungry predators such as lions, leopards, and hyenas on the prowl. Nocturnal species like bushbabies, galagos, civets, and genets also become active, while herbivores like hippos can be heard chomping grass or seen grazing along riverbanks.

Beyond wildlife, night drives unveil constellations of the southern hemisphere sky that remain invisible during daylight hours. Guides share insights into stars, planets, nebulas, and African folklore related to astronomy. The possibility of witnessing shooting stars streaking overhead adds to the enchantment. Most drives culminate with sundowners and night-viewing equipment, allowing you to experience the bush after dark.

Available in various Tanzanian safari destinations such as the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater, night drives provide an exhilarating experience of spotting predators in the darkness. Departing from the typical daytime safari, these drives uncover the mystery and drama of the African bush at night through thrilling animal encounters and stargazing against the pitch-black skies.
