Stock up your stories with a dawn game drive before returning to camp for breakfast. Perhaps you shall spot an elusive leopard, preparing for a day of hunting ahead, its muscles stretching and flexing in anticipation. Your day follows the timeless rhythms of the park: before the sun hits its peak and the animals seek shade, it is time for another drive. Have lunch at camp and a rest in the heat of the afternoon, before venturing out again in the cooler mid-afternoon.

At night, you may well find yourself around the camp fire, telling tales of derring-do, or penning notes of adventure to enthrall your listeners another day. But let the night sounds serenade you, for tomorrow there is another expedition awaiting – perhaps a guided walk or an optional fly-in safari to Lake Victoria for fishing and bird watching at Mfangano Island Camp.
