Day Essentials


If you are going on a day drive to spot some African animals in their day-to-day life you’ll need a few essentials to ensure your guests have a great day in the sun!


Definitely a must! A good pair of binoculars will help you spot a leopard lounging in a tree. 


A toolbag is important to have on a game drive, always better to be safe than sorry.


A portable fridge/Cooler box

On a day’s drive, the heat can be overwhelming at times. Bringing along a portable fridge or cooler box can help keep guests cool and hydrated. 



Camping chairs 

Stopping for a picnic allows guests an opportunity to get out and immerse themselves in the natural surroundings. Having some comfy camping chairs for guests to sit in can help create an awesome and comfortable experience.


Night Drives Essentials

After dark expect the predators. A night drive safari gives guests a unique experience to spot all the nocturnal creatures of the night. To see them, game drivers need an array of lights. Small unintimidating lights, as well as big spotlights, are all essential to view the animals without scaring them away.



Viewing lights

A night-drive vehicle needs to be well-equipped with spotlights. These are used to scan the trees and bush to find animals.


Rechargeable flashlight 

Just as important as viewing lights, flashlights are also a necessity. Giving guests the option of viewing the bush gives them a hands-on experience. 


Solar lanterns

Lastly, solar lanterns are a great addition to any night drive safari. These lanterns are very portable as well as environmentally friendly. They could be used to light up a location if guests stop to get out somewhere for a nightcap.


With the right lights and comfy additions, your guest’s game drive will be an unforgettable experience whether it’s day or night!
