We use vans with pop-up roof for an optimum game-viewing experience. The optimal number in most of these vehicles is six to 9 people, forward-facing. Each seat has a seat belt and the interior is spacious enough to ensure the comfort of every guest. All our vehicles are regularly checked as safety is our top priority. Below are some of the vehicle features;
|First-Aid Kit||Cooler Box||Spare Tires and Heavy-Duty Jack||Luggage Space|
|Every safari vehicle is equipped with a first aid kit. Our guides are trained to use this in case of emergencies.||All our vehicles have a small cooler box to keep beverages cold. This is not to be taken for granted especially after a long day out in the savannah.||We carry two spare tires and a heavy-duty jack. Having two spares is better than having one due to poor roads in some areas, and presence of acacia thorns among others.||All vehicles are equipped with storage space for luggage and equipment – some under the seating section, others at the back of the truck and some with a detachable trailer.|
Obviously space is at a premium, so be sure to pack only the absolute essentials.
|Pop-up Roof||Larger Windows||Two way UHF radio call||Binoculars|
|The roof can be removed so that you can stand-up and have a better vantage for viewing wildlife.||We made all the windows in the vehicle as large as possible so guests can have a better viewing experience.||This allows our driver to easily communicate with park rangers and other tour operators to know where is the latest movement of wildlife.||Provides a good depth effect to view animals up-close|
