Except where road conditions are very rugged, we use minibuses for our safari tours. These vehicles are custom built and have good ground clearance making them particularly suitable for safari work. On the rough roads and long journeys these vehicles provide a degree of comfort superior to other safari vehicles. Additionally, their sliding windows and roomy photographic roof hatches make them ideal for photographic purposes. The standard minibus is licensed to carry a maximum of nine passengers. However, we recommend that wherever possible, arrangements should be limited to a maximum of 7 clients per vehicle as this will allow each client a window seat and easy access to the observation hatch.
