Get a good pair of binoculars: Finding a good pair of binoculars will help you clearly spot even the far animals like Monkey, leopard or lion lazily hitching and sleeping in a far tree off the track.

Listen Carefully: While on a self drive safari, the rhythm of the wild is not only interesting but also a heads up for a spectacular sighting.
