Whether you’ve experienced a game farm first hand or just heard about how incredible the experience can be, you’ll know that staying at a game farm resort is an experience that is incredibly special. Not only will you have the opportunity to see a plethora of majestic animals, but you’ll also be able to connect with nature and enjoy the outdoors in a way that you can’t in most other outdoor settings.

From early morning game drives to nature walks and photography, there’s no shortage of things to do while you’re out in the bush. After long days out keeping busy in the sunshine, you’re sure to be knackered by the time you get to bed. You may have time to watch an episode of your favourite show, play some online slots or even do some tennis betting if that’s your thing, but you’re sure to have your lights out nice and early.

Here are some of the best things to do while you’re staying at a game farm.

Game Drives

It can’t be a surprise that going on game drives is number one on our list, and the best thing of all, is that you can do several game drives a day. Going out at different times and to different places means you’ll be able to see a variety of different animals, making the whole experience absolutely incredible.

There’s nothing quite like heading out as the sun begins to rise, all bundled up in your warmest clothes and sipping on a cup of coffee in total silence as you gaze out into nature and wait for wild animals to sneak into your periphery.

Hikes and Nature Walks

Going for walks on a game farm can be both thrilling and dangerous, so make sure that before you head out, you know exactly where you are and aren’t allowed to be on foot. Normally, you’ll be able to explore surrounding areas and mountains via trials that’ll provide you with incredible views of the park. There really is no better way to experience nature than to do it on foot.


Whether you’re a professional or not, having the opportunity to photograph majestic creatures in their natural habitat is an incredibly special thing to be able to do. Sometimes, you may just take photos through the day, but the best time to get beautiful pictures is on sunrise and sunset game drives.

Bird Watching

Bird watching may not be for everybody, but there’s something special about bird watching in a game reserve. It’s tranquil and the if you’re lucky, you’ll be able to witness rare and exquisite birds as they go about their day. Take along a bird book so that you can learn about what you see and know what to look out for.


Some game farms have rivers that visitors are allowed to use for fishing – make sure that it’s allowed though. Often, they’re full of trout and other species. Fishing is another peaceful and special way to connect with nature.
