Giant anteater savannah encounter

Giant Anteater

Head out into the savannah in search of giant anteaters.

At six feet long, with an elongated snout and strong bushy tail, giant anteaters are not just one of the savannah’s largest animals, but one of its strangest too. On an excursion by 4x4 into the rolling grasslands, an expert guide will take you to a series of termite mounds in the hope of spotting some of these magnificent beasts probing for their breakfasts using their perfectly evolved, long, sticky tongues. You may also encounter countless other critters in this wildlife rich environment.
