Related FAQ's

What happens on a game drive?

Game drives are an integral part of any safari. You’ll head out into the wilderness with your trained and knowledgeable guide in one of our specialised vehicles. We have both closed and open-sided vehicles, so everyone is guaranteed a window seat for the best view of the action.

How do I change my wheel on a 4x4 vehicle?

Firstly, you must try and get your vehicle as level as possible. However, once you get your vehicle levelled - place steady rocks around the other three wheels. After that, ensure that the car won't roll or move while you’re changing the tyres. Once you’re done - you may remove the spare wheel.

Before jacking, ensure that you have a nice and securing jacking point underneath the axle. Once you’ve raised the vehicle sufficiently, you may remove the remaining wheel nuts as well as the wheel - and replace it with the spare wheel. Note, It's important to tighten them alternatively, so every second nut can swing across nicely. To know more about changing a wheel on a 4x4 vehicle, watch this video clip - http://bit.ly/2h5daLK

Can money be deposited into the company’s bank account?

Yes, money can be deposited into the company’s bank account.

Can I cross rivers with a 4x4 vehicle?

Crossing through water with a 4x4 vehicle should be done with care. A general rule of thumb is to not try to cross any water source that is deeper than half the wheel.

When crossing a river, always take a look at the terrain around you and walk in the river  before trying to cross it. If you can’t walk or stand in the river, find a different place to cross. Drowning a 4x4 is negligence, and won’t be covered by your vehicle insurance.

When is the best time to visit the Karoo National Park?

The Karoo National Park is best visited during late winter, spring and autumn, as the summer months can be uncomfortably warm.
