Sundowners and Safaris are two words that go hand in hand. And at Safari Experts, as well as our favourite camps and lodges all over the world, we take this part of the day very seriously.
As your day begins to wind down and the sun begins to slowly sink towards the horizon your guide will chose the perfect spot for you enjoy this tradition— from a sharp bend in a dry river bed, to floating down the mighty Zambezi. From the roof of your car with the resident wild cheetah to sitting on top of the real “pride rock”, to camelback overlooking the great pyramids of Giza or the pink glint of the Taj Mahal from the river below. From Antarctica and to the outback of Australia. These secret locations will never cease to amaze, but once an ice cold cocktail or beer is placed into your hand and your taste buds are marvelled by the delicious hor d’orves, the moment becomes truly magical.
This is a moment to soak up and reflect on what a great day it has been while also watching the colours of the sky dramatically change each minute, listen as the sounds change from the chorus of birds taking roost, and to the crickets and night sounds taking center stage.
It is such a staple of your day that many clients return from safari and re-instate the sundowner tradition into their everyday life.
As much as one can imagine what a sundowner is like, you just have to treat yourself and experience all the magic that can happen. So get in touch and let us introduce you to this favourite tradition of ours!
