Transportation While on Safari
Transportation plays a very key part in any trip. This can make or break a trip. A lot has been said about minivans and 4X4 vehicles and why one should use one or the other. As a company that has arranged and guided safaris for many years, we believe in giving the best service and cost efficient trips. When it comes to vehicles as a company we have believed that there is no need to subject our clients to high cost trips. They can do the same trip, same lodges and visit the same parks/ reserves as a 4×4 vehicle and have the same experience at a lower cost. One thing is for sure though, we do not expose our clients to situations that we could avoid by upgrading their transportation means to a 4×4 vehicle where we believe this would work.
There are some clients though who would come to us and request for a 4×4 vehicle, this we gladly offer. Some of these trips are trips that require hardy vehicles where no minibuses could go. Some of these areas are areas that require vehicle with high clearance, long drives that need lots of space to avoid getting “squeezed” as you drive or trips that are arranged just before or after rainy seasons.
On all our trips, we offer each client access to a window seat. This is to make sure that they all get access to easy photography or wildlife viewing.
All our vehicles are new and are changed every two years. This is due to the status of the roads that can be hard on the vehicles. After every trip, the vehicles are checked and certified before they are allowed out on another trip. All the vehicles come with first aid kits, fire extinguisher, two-way long range radio and 110v charging gadgets to charge your electrical gadgets. These can only be charged during the drives between the destination but not during the game drives. You could charge your electrical stuff at the lodges as most of them offer this service.
On the flying packages, we use helicopters, small charter aircraft (min 2 pax) to the commercial planes that can carry 35+ people.
