Types of Safari Vehicles

No matter where you travel in East Africa, your transportation will be of key importance. Depending on where you will be going on safari, the vehicles will range from 2WD minivans, to open-sided 4WD’s to close-sided 4WD’s with photographic hatches and small aircraft.

Special for

FLY-IN SAFARI

Participating in a safari to East Africa is high on the list of experiences for many wildlife photographers. Whether you’re a first-time traveler to East Africa or a seasoned pro, there are universal challenges to be addressed in the planning and execution of your trip.

We spend roughly 15 year in East Africa photographic Safaris. What we will share with you comes from a background of hard-earned experience. Our Local professional Driver guides born and raised in Tanzania. They have a deep love for the country, its people and the stunning array of wilderness locations to photograph. The year 2018 officially marks 16th year of leading photographic safaris to Tanzania, so it’s with great pleasure that we write this article dedicated to photographing wildlife in Tanzania.

Unlimited Game Drives

OVERLAND SAFARI

Each safari offers unlimited game drives with no mileage restrictions and exclusive access to the most secluded and wildlife abundant areas in Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda. Most other companies operate shorter, limited game drives and never end up making it far from the lodge – or the tented C amps. Many companies shuffle their clients only through the most heavily trafficked areas on the normal “safari circuit” – but we will take you deep into the isolated wilderness where these packaged tour companies don’t go.

Our Vehicle Design

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’ into 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 costs. Normally, we will only carry four guests per extended vehicle.

Larger 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!

Open roof 4WD

The roof can be removed for those who like that style 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 of the sky.

Open Side 4WD

Open-sided 4WD’s are used on our customized fly-in lodge and tented camp safaris.  Most open-sided 4WD’s will have a sun canopy on the top. They offer great visibility and provide unobstructed photography opportunities in all directions.
