Adding extra people to a safari vehicle

How common is it to end up with other people in your safari vehicle?

I've booked a camping safari for 3 people so that we would have some space. I've just seen on other forums that other people could be added to your vehicle. Is this a common practice and is there anything I can do to prevent this?

Very common unless you pay for your own vehicle. It would not be unusual for a single traveler or another couple to join a group of three. My info is based on lodge-based safaris, so maybe its different from a camping safari. The only real answer you'll get is from your operator so ask them -- it may not be much more to reserve a private vehicle.

If you booked a camping safari it can be private or based on the safari operators' scheduled departure dates. With the latter it's possible to also be a group departure, so other individuals may be join you.

Only your tour operator/outfitter can advise whether you have a private or group safari. Ask them. If a group, inquire about the additional cost to have a private safari.
