Here are a few design ‘tweaks’ we have made to make the vehicles safari ready:
- Extended and 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’ in to each other. Although our vehicles are designed to carry 7 passengers we will only put six guests together in one vehicle if this is requested in order to save on cost. Normally we will only carry five guests per extended vehicles
- Open roof
The roof can be removed so that you can stand-up and have a better vantage for viewing. We use roof hatches that can be removed completely. This way you have a much better all-round view as well as a view to the sky.
Be ware of vehicles with ‘pop-tops’/ roofs that just push up and do not remove. These are uncomfortable and do not allow for such good wildlife viewing.
- Lager windows
We made all the windows in the vehicle as large as will possibly fit. And if we could, we would make the entire body out of glass…we are still working on that design, watch this space for more
- First-aid box
- Every safari vehicle has a first aid box and the guide is trained to use this
