Over the years we have researched and refined the list of vehicle equipment that we provide. The equipment is identical in every vehicle but we always ensure you have the essentials for each country and its respective driving conditions.

All Safari Drive guests are briefed at our bases where we will run through the equipment with you. This gives you a chance to choose more or less equipment at no additional cost. All trips include satellite telephones at no extra charge with free calls to Safari Drive (or our bases).

We always ensure you have all the essential kit (and some nice extras) for your trip, so camping, eating out (and drinking) are a joy. We also provide you with a small starter kit of a few basic essentials (salt, pepper etc) to which you can then add your own supplies along the way, particularly fresh fruit, vegetables and meat.

  • the roof tent

    When our clients are asked about their Safari Drive experience they often comment that the roof tent was one of their most memorable parts of the trip. The roof tent provides a unique experience, allowing confident, comfortable and secure sleeping in areas of real wilderness. Providing great star gazing opportunities as well as a great place to lie and admire the view, the tents couldn’t be easier to use and can withstand the most extreme weather and rains that even Africa can throw at them.
