How close


I'm often asked, how close we will get to wild animals while on safari.
Bottom line is that there is no easy answer, except to say that the animals dictate how close we get. On foot it is difficult to get very close, indeed who would want too! But from a game drive vehicle we can get a lot closer. Your guide will make that judgement call. Based on his experience and knowledge he'll assess each situation to decide what is safe and moreover what is appropriate and ethical.
In the case of the picture above, this lioness was busy eating a Zebra and only gave us a cursory look and no more. Animals are not threatened by a game drive vehicle and (as long as one stays sitting) they associate the human occupants as part of the vehicle and are quite happy to go about their life.
