Useful Jeep Safari tips

  • Off-road driving is harmful for the environment because of smoke, oil emissions and destruction of the grass layer, causing soil erosion and altering the drainage patterns.
  • Do not drive through closed roads or park areas: there may be obstacles on the road, flooding or falling rock.
  • Do not speed in the parks (the speed limit is usually 40 km/h) Speeding ruins the road surface, increases noise and raises the risk of hitting animals sitting in the road or crossing it.
  • For your own safety, stay in your vehicle at all times. In all the parks to be visited by car, it is forbidden to leave the vehicle except in designated places, such as picnic sites or walking trails (some parks are closed to traffic and must only be explored on foot).
  • You must enter and leave the parks through an authorised gate. Any other entry/exit amounts to violating park regulation and driving off-road.
  • Stick to the hours allowed for road traffic. It is usually forbidden to drive from dusk to dawn (7 PM to 6 AM), without special authorisation (some parks do provide evening or night drives). Overnight, you are asked to stay at your lodge or campsite.
  • Your vehicle serves as a blind or hide, since animals usually will not identify it with humans. As long as you remain inside the car you post no danger to them, so it is unlikely that you will be attacked. In areas with a serious poaching problem, like Tsavo in Kenya, you may find some slightly aggressive reactions, because in those regions some animals have learned to associate a car with poachers.
