Every year I look forward to The Getaway Show at the Coca-Cola Dome! Not only does the show offer a ‘buffet’ of travel, adventure and outdoor ideas but it also showcases what can only be described as extraordinary gems right here in South Africa.
Exploring every aisle, I absorb all the travel suggestions and love to meet people who too have a passion for the outdoors, sharing with me their adventures and personal experiences. Each exhibitor displays a snapshot into their ‘out there’ offering, and I always leave feeling encouraged and motivated to discover more of this magnificent country.
One of my favourite finds at The Getaway Show was a product called ‘Ranger in a Box’. At first I gazed upon the little box, inquisitive of its contents and most importantly – its purpose. I had never seen anything like it and I was intrigued by its existence.
'Ranger in a Box' will give you the experience of having your own personal ranger in the car with you at all times – in your CD player. Enhance your own safari experience by taking your own personal ranger with you in the car – ‘Ranger in a Box’.
‘Ranger in a Box’ gives you all the interesting information, facts and stories on the wildlife you may come across on your game drive at the touch of a button on your car CD player. An easy identification chart helps you select the required track for each animal so you can easily select the information about the animal you have just spotted.
The information includes interesting facts, behaviour, myths and legends and even research information where applicable, as well as tips and hints on how to maximise your viewing experience. Ranger-in-a-box will, for example, tell you all about lions while you are watching them in their natural habitat– what physical characteristics to note, any fascinating behaviour to look out for, social activities that can be expected and the indigenous meanings of these animals names.”
This is a really helpful self-drive safari tool and I also think it’s a great idea for gifts!
