Our Safari Vehicles


FIRST AID KIT

Every safari vehicle is equipped with a first aid kit. Our guides are trained to use this in case of emergencies.

WILD LIFE BOOKS AND MAPS

You will find a set of books and guides about mammals and birds. There are maps of the area as well.

Pop up roof

The roof can be removed so that you can stand-up and have a better vantage for viewing wildlife.

POWER INVERTERS

All our vehicles have 110v and 220v power adapters to make it possible to charge camera batteries.

COOLER BOX

All our vehicles have a small fridge to keep beverages cold. This is not to be taken for granted especially after a long day out in the savannah.

cOFFEE BOX

We have a coffee box with snacks, coffee and tea that can be enjoyed at anytime on a game drive.

EXTENDED & WIDER

We extended and widened the body of the vehicles to allow more space to move around and to get the best photographic angles without "bumping" into each other. Although our vehicles are designed to carry more passengers, we only put 6 guests in one vehicle.

LARGER WINDOWS

We made all the windows in the vehicle as large as possible so guests can have a better viewing experience.

Spare Tires and Heavy-Duty Jack

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.
