- Observe the animals silently with minimum disturbance of their natural activities.
Loud talking on a game drive can frighten the animals away. Noise may also antagonize fellow visitors.
- Stay in the vehicle at all times, except at designated picnic or walking areas.
Animals are wild and can be unpredictable.
- Never attempt to attract an animal's attention.
Don't imitate animal sounds, clap your hands, pound on the vehicle, or throw objects.
- When viewing wildlife, keep to a minimum distance of 20 meters and pull to the side of the road to allow others to pass.
- Please respect the driver-guides' judgement about proximity to wildlife, particularly lions, cheetahs, and leopards.
- Don't insist on getting closer for a better photograph. A vehicle driven too close can hinder a hunt or cause animals to abandon a hard-earned meal.
- Litter tossed on the ground can choke or poison animals and birds.
- Never attempt to feed or approach any wild animal on foot.
This is especially important near lodges or in campsites where animals may have become accustomed to human visitors.
- Refrain from smoking during game drives.
The dry African bush ignites very easily, and a flash fire can harm hundreds of animals.
- Minimise the disposable items brought on the trip. Leave film boxes, wrappings from new clothes, and other un-needed items at home.
- Please note that the use or importation of plastic carrier bags was banned in Kenya in August 2017.
- Be conscious of disposal of tissues, lens paper, water bottles and caps, food wrappers and other trash.
Avoid using the trash containers on the road-side stopping places since the garbage will not find its way to the dumping site. Instead, keep a small trash bag and empty it back at the hotel or camp each night.
- Entry into the National Parks and Reserves is restricted between 6.00 a.m. and 6.00 p.m.
- Night game drives are NOT allowed, except in private wildlife conservancies.
- Off-road driving is prohibited in the Parks and Reserves. Stay on established trails to preserve grass and other plants.
- Don't pick any vegetation, or carry any item of biological interest, including eggshells, feathers and bones of any kind as souvenirs.
- Consider picking up litter left by other visitors. It is important to be mindful of the environment.
