Terrible Safari/Game Drive
We did not stay at the lodge and this review does not apply to those accommodations. The Inkwendwezi game drive was an excursion we took while on an Oceania cruise in South Africa. We have been on many game drives in Africa and this one was by far the worst. The driver of our vehicle (Kevin) completely ignored his passengers and spent much of the time talking on his cell phone. We are avid photographers and he was oblivious as to what we were trying to photograph, never stopping at opportune times and starting the vehicle abruptly without any warning whatsoever. This park is known for its white lions and we were eager to obtain photos of these animals. We spent very little time at this lion venue and the driver made no attempt to get the vehicle into a good position. The lions were sleeping when we first arrived and when they raised their heads, he abruptly drove off without noting that the animals were finally alert, or seeing that the photographers in the vehicle were trying to capture this. I ended up with only one very bad photo of a white lion. Additionally, the vehicles were crammed with people (more than I’ve ever seen on a game drive vehicle) and uncomfortable, and the roads were ridiculously rough and so narrow that some of us got our faces scratched from branches on the side of the road. I would not recommend this excursion to anyone, especially if you are a photographer or have back problems.
