Vehicles

Safari vehicles are traditional safari Toyota Land Cruisers.  The roof lift's up to allow you to stand up and take photos, and enjoy the serenity and wildlife of Africa.  They are fitted with radio's therefore allowing the driver to communicate with other vehicles and therefore giving you the best opportunity to find animals.  The vehicles are extremely comfortable. 

Groups of 8-12 people, we would operate 2 vehicles. 

Groups of 13 people or more, we would operate 2 or 3 vehicles as well as a supply car.  The supply car would travel ahead of the group and get camp sites set up before you arrive. This works much better if we have a larger group and allows you to maximize animal viewing time. So invite your friends along!
