It’s important to be safe while enjoying game drive. We still need you to explain to us all the fun stuff and experience you get there. And you can only do that by being back completely and healthy. With no incidents.
Every conservation area does have rules and regulations. Which helps to guide and guard all the visitors. Sadly, just like the terms and conditions, very few do read them. Most of us just ignore and think we can handle it with no guidance. Until we do something crazy and things turn ugly.
Wildlife kill or get killed. They have no rules to follow or care about any. After all, its their home and they are wild. They have their own ways of living. They only care about what to eat, reproduce and survive. So they will literally do anything to keep it that way.

If you do game drives frequently, you get to meet different types of visitors. They sometime do crazy stuff either due to ignorance or lack of knowledge.

In the middle of the park. There were bushes nearby. They seem not to understand what danger they were exposing themselves to. Can you imagine they were in company of two toddlers?
Its very dangerous to get out of your car while in the wild. Unless you have a sign advising you so. Anything could have been in that bush. And wildlife could harm you badly before you make it back to your car. So its a terrible and dangerous to get out of your car while game driving.
You may think that you have checked for any wildlife presence. Hence safe to get out. But its wildlife habitat, they know their home well. And hiding favours them. Most wildlife will just allow you to spot them. But if they decide to hide, you will not be able to spot them. Let that sink in and remain in your car always.
