Equipment and Safety
Our special purpose safari vehicles are selected and developed to suit the particular demands of each tour or safari. All are air-conditioned with fabric covered forward facing seats, excellent visibility, sound system, remote area telephones, First-Aid kits, tools and recovery equipment.
We use Mercedes Benz, Australian made 4WD OKA and 4WD Toyota vehicles. Each vehicle has no more than 13 passenger seats assuring our guests of safe comfortable adventures in small personal groups.
Importantly, our equipment and Guides are backed-up by fail-safe systems designed to guarantee quality, consistency and security ... no matter which safari you are on or which Guide is assigned to you.
