Guides News – January 2017

For someone on their first African safari, and indeed, someone visiting Mabula for their first time, the wildlife experience is second to none. This experience, and the manner in which one would experience a game drive can however be a surprise, and even a little frightening to some and that is totally understandable.

A question we as guides are often asked is “Why don’t these animals attack us?”, “Are we safe to be this close?” or “Why is it that these animals seem so relaxed with the vehicles?”

It goes without saying that safety when out on game drive is every guide’s first priority. The focus of the experience is to enjoy it, to capture unique moments in time that can be shared with friends and family for generations to come, and of course, after all, the purpose is to have fun, but to do so safely!
