Do you know what precautions to take when on a safari? Safari park owners and managers nearly always provide guests with a set of rules for complying with to keep you safe, but there have been many occasions where people have come to harm even after following these instructions to the letter. You will normally be told to stay in your vehicle at all times and avoid feeding the animals, and the company may inform you that they are not responsible for any damage that happens to your vehicle whilst you are in the park.
Which precautions to take when on a safari
It’s vital that you read and comply with all the instructions provided to you when on a safari. You won’t normally be able to take the dog on the tour with you, though temporary accommodation may be provided for your pet as you’re travelling through. You are advised to bring any relevant items with you that will keep your dog happy and comfortable during their stay.
Safari parks enable people to see wild animals in their natural habitat and accidents are thankfully rare. However, if you feel that the owners and staff at the park put you in danger and failed in their duty of care to you by exposing you to dangers, you may well be able to make a claim for compensation. Although you will be given instructions to keep you safe, it’s possible that you may still be in an accident that could have been avoided if the staff had taken more care. You may be bitten by an animal somewhere on the premises, could sustain food poisoning in the canteen, be hit by another vehicle or endure a slip, trip or a fall due to an uneven surface.
