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.
Conserving East Africa's Natural Environment:
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.
