A vehicle safari
is an activity in which guests are taken out during the hours of daylight by a guide in a Land Rover or similar specialist vehicle with the primary intention of finding and viewing wildlife. This is the main activity in the vast majority of safari areas.

It is important to realise that in most areas wildlife is most easily approached by vehicle, since the animals become habituated to their presence and no longer feel threatened. You are therefore able to get much closer to the animals than you would be able to on foot and, obviously, with a much greater degree of safety.

Here are some brief discussions on five main issues which will greatly affect the quality of your experience ...


Open or closed safari vehicles
Shared or private safari vehicles
Overloading of safari vehicles
Duration of a vehicle safari
Avoiding traffic whilst out on vehicle safari
