How Do You "Use the Restroom" While on a Game Drive?

I assume that, for most game drives, there is no actual restroom. Do you just find a tree or bush? What do you do with the paper products when you are finished?

Thanks for answering this rather delicate question.

Not sure what others do, but our driver stopped to let us go behind a termite mound (they are everywhere). We brought our own toilet paper, and carted the remains back to the vehicle in a sealed plastic bag, which we disposed of back at the camp.

Ericka:

A product you might want to think about is Restop 1 or Restop 2. You can purchase these from Magellans.com.

Restop 1 is for urine. You just open the plastic bag which has a powder inside. Place the bag where necessary and urinate. The urine turns the powder to gel. Snap the bag closed and you don't have to worry about spills because of the gel - everything is now solid. Take it back to your lodge and dispose of in the trash. Works well.

The things you learn on Fodors!

Or, if you're not staying at lodges, a trowel should be supplied for you to use.
