Private Safari Vehicle Kruger National Park Full Day Safari

Hiring a private safari vehicle is the best way to view animals in their natural habitat. The vehicle is specifically designed for game viewing purposes. With the wind in your hair, sun on your skin and the smell of the bush, it gives you the ultimate outdoor feel. The safari vehicle gives you an immense height advantage, in comparison to normal vehicles. This makes it easier to spot animals, especially in tall grass and dense vegetation.

Hiring a private vehicle makes it more special when you are a family, a couple in love or a group of friends that does not want to share the safari vehicle with other clients. Maybe you would like to propose to your girlfriend, boyfriend or partner on safari, who knows? Just think how romantic this can be; only the two of you on the back of an open safari vehicle in the breathtaking Kruger National Park, chauffeured by your own professional guide.

We strongly advise that dedicated birders and photographers book a safari vehicle privately. This way you can spend quality time waiting for that perfect photo. We recommend clients traveling with kids; age 7 and under to rent a private vehicle. This is just for respect towards the other paying clients on the safari
