Asilia’s First Photographic Safari Vehicle
By Britta Foulis – Content Marketing Manager
Our very own, and first-ever, Asilia Photographic Safari Vehicle arrived at Naboisho Campin September 2018 and the first guests to make use of it were rewarded with some seriously epic wildlife moments! George the Explorer was lucky enough to spend time with some special characters whilst out on a game drive and the results were just phenomenal.
Located At The Following Camps
Specialist safari photographic vehicles are available in four of our locations across Kenya and Tanzania.
Asilia Photographic Safari Vehicle
Our Photographic Safari vehicle can accommodate 3 photographers (and their equipment) as well as 1 additional guest who would sit beside the driver. The driver’s side seat is not accommodated for photographer’s though, so they would just be joining for the ride and experience.
Photographic Safari Vehicle Extras
- Drop-down sides for photographers to lie down and get low angle photographs
- Three 360º swivel seats, one per “row” – seats also lean right back if required
- Only front and back bars to hold up the roofless obstruction of view for photography
- Beanbags and foam camera rest (photographers advised to bring their own tripods)
- All the usual Asilia vehicle kit – fridge, charging points, roll down sides for bad weather etc.
“The modified photographic vehicle was an absolutedream! Getting eye level – or below – is crucial to powerful wildlife images and the vehicle made it easy. It also made the encounters all the more special; with no barrier between you and the subject, you really feel ‘part’ of their world. If you’re a passionate photographer or wildlife lover, don’t even hesitate… grab it before another ‘tog does!” – George the Explorer
