Tips / Safety

A safari is one of the most incredible travel experiences on Earth. It’s also kind of dangerous. If you come prepared, however, you can minimize the risks and have a great story to bring back home.


Always Listen to the Guide

Every safari has a guide, and if yours doesn’t you should probably run for the nearest exit. A guide knows the land, how the animals behave and is your first line of defense against wild creatures.


Stay in the Car

Few things are dumber than people who get out of a car to take photos with lions. For your own safety, and that of the animals, please always stay behind locked doors while you explore.


Stay Quiet

While the animals might be used to seeing people at this point, they don’t appreciate loud noises. The last thing you want to do is startle a herd of elephants. I’m not even sure a car could save you at that point.


Wear Protection

If you’re on safari in Africa, it’s likely to be hot, so dress appropriately. Wear clothes that breathe and protect you from the sun. More importantly, though, wear insect repellant. Mosquitos kill more people than any other animal on safari.


Don’t Carry Food

Some animals can smell food from up to 18 miles away. Do not be the guy that draws in unnecessary attention because you were craving a tuna sandwich. Eat before you go on safari, or keep your windows rolled up if you just can’t resist.

Everyone has a different headphones preference. Some prefer the ones that go over your head and others like the ones inside your ear. I am particular about my headphones, as I don’t like when they go too far into your ear. I was nervous to purchase Apple Airpods as a result, but I am glad I did.

Puck, Flay, Symon, Sherry and Schulson all have restaurants at Borgata.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
