Getting Around on Safari

Fri, Dec 14, 2018

Most of the safari camps in Africa use Toyota Land Cruisers to get around.  And why not?  They are known for their reliability and ruggedness.

Here’s a shot of our Land Cruise.  It’s been modified to remove the doors, add three rows of bench seats and the canopy.

They’ve also added the seat off of the front bumper for the spotter/tracker.  In this shot, the spotter/tracker has moved into the vehicle for protection due to the proximity of the dogs but you can see the seat on the front left.

Since our safari was photo centric, we only had one client per row so that the person could freely move from left to right depending on where the action was.  It was a very nice set-up.

A final point to note was that everyone was safe sitting in the vehicle and this included scenes similar to above but with lions.
