Although we try to get your feet on solid African soil whenever we can, using vehicles for game drives to get close to wild animals in safety is just essential. All our safari vehicles are custom designed to ensure the best wildlife viewing and comfort. This is crucial when spending up to 10-hours a day game viewing from the vehicle.
Here are a few design 'tweaks' we have made to make the vehicles safari-ready:
Extended and wider
We extended and widened the body of the vehicles to allow more space to move around and to get the best photographic angles without 'bumping' in to each other. Although our vehicles are designed to carry 6 passengers we will only put six guests together in one vehicle if this is requested in order to save on cost. Normally we will only carry 4 guests per extended vehicle.
We made all the windows in the vehicle as large as will possibly fit. And if we could, we would make the entire body out of glass. We are still working on that design.
The roof can be removed so that you can stand-up and have a better vantage for viewing.
All our vehicles have 110v and 220v power adaptors to make it possible to charge camera batteries.
Fridge or coolbox
All our vehicles have a small fridge where water and drinks can be kept cold.
Every safari departs with a coffee box with snacks, coffee and tea that can be enjoyed at anytime on a game drive.
Every safari vehicle has a first aid box and the guide is trained to use this.
Wildlife books and maps
Every safari vehicle is outfitted with a set of mammal and bird books and maps of the area.
All Wayo safari vehicles are four wheel drive Land Rovers and Land Cruisers. They are custom designed to ensure the best wildlife viewing and comfort, with the capacity of 5 to 7 seater.
