- During game drives, the focus lies mainly on flagship species
The wildlife viewing here is excellent. All high-profile safari animals are present and readily seen. This includes the leopard, which is usually difficult to find. Leopard are relaxed throughout the area, and you are almost guaranteed a sighting. Other wildlife you can expect to see includes giraffe, zebra, wildebeest and several antelope species. Night drives offer a chance to see some nocturnal species such as porcupine.
Lion Sands’ terrain is primarily woodland savannah. The vegetation is quite thick, but this rarely affects animal sightings since the highly skilled guides and trackers are allowed to drive off-road.
