Our six COVID-19 vehicle protocols for keeping you safe on a driving safari

By Asilia Africa | 28 July 2021

A driving safari is a great way to ensure total flexibility on your safari, and privacy for your group whether you’re a couple or family or friends travelling together — just you and your guide exploring the wild landscapes of East Africa in your own vehicle.

We pay as much attention to our COVID-19 protocols for our road safari vehicles (and all other vehicles of course) as we do in our safari camps, as it’s somewhere you spend so much of your time. You can relax knowing your vehicle has been sanitised, cleaned and given a thorough once over to ensure the highest standards of cleanliness are met.

In addition, we provide individual metal water bottles to be used for the entirety of your trip and provide sanitisers within the vehicle for guest use. Your guide will be rapid tested before your safari, and they will wear their mask at all times in and out of the vehicle.

We do all of this to make sure you have the very best safari you can, leaving behind the worries of the pandemic and focussing on what really matters, your East African safari experience.

Inforaphic explaining the Covid-19 protocols that take place on a safari vehicle for Asilia Africa.

Designed for comfort

Each of our closed safari vehicles is designed to give a large window seat for each guest as well as a pop-up roof for a different perspective at a wildlife sighting.

All of our vehicles come standard with front-of-vehicle air-conditioning, first aid kits, inverters with plug points for charging batteries/phones, Maasai blankets, bean bags for photographers, a fridge or cooler box with refreshments, sunshade on pop-up roof and catering equipment for picnics.

Our transfer vehicles

For transfers in Arusha and Nairobi, we offer luxury 4x4 vehicles — Toyota Alphards, a Land Cruiser Prado (Kenya), and a Mercedes Benz (Tanzania) mainly used for airport-hotel transfers — all adhering to the same COVID-19 protocols outlined above.

We can’t wait to welcome you on a driving safari in Tanzania or Kenya soon.
