“Green Safaris” Get You Closer to Animals

'Greenrovers' Help Tourists Get Close to Animals

Tech News by NewsLook

I don't know If I would want to get that close. If the animal gets spooked and turns, you will be easily outrun. Binoculars work just fine. Even for birdwatching

Closer ... for WHAT is the question? To take better aim and shoot them? What's wrong with keeping your distance and getting a pair of binoculars?

What an excellent change.... the hundreds of bird calls wouldn't be drowned out by engine noise and all the sounds of the bush can be appreciated. The biggest and most important advance is for animal security as poachers are on the rise and it is important that the presence of patrol personnel can take them by surprise. Great news.

This does sound like a great idea. If there are going to be safaris, this is the way to do it.

A great idea ... let's hope the poachers don't get any of these "green rovers"!
