    We have booked to stay at Longleat and wondered whether anyone has ever done the safari trail in a motorhome. We don't really know whether to risk it or not.
    The thing is my son is an amateur photographer and wants to be able to move from one side of the vehicle to the other to get his best photos, we wouldn't be able to do that in their safari bus!
    Of course the other option is to try and hire a car while we are there!
    What do you all think, has anyone tried it?

    We drove from Cape Town up to the Kalahari on through Namibia and up to the Etosha game reserve on the borders of Angola and back again in a hired motorhome looking at wildlife all the way. Can't see there would be a problem in Longleat !:Laughing:

    Not done Longleat but a couple of others with a motorhome.. no problems..

    just don't stop if there are monkeys about.. they climb all over and try to rip wiper blades off.. so .. anything external will be a target.. :Eeek:

    Should be OK apart from the monkey section, they would have a field day romping over a motorhome !

    The little buggers had fun peeling up the rubber roof trim on my Espace a few years ago, I never have been able to get it to stay down. :Blush:

    too many expensive but flimsy things on a motorhome to pass through the monkey enclosure unscathed. I have seen them open a top box on a car and scatter the contents, as well as the usual ripping off wipers and aerials. Gets expensive

    So the consensus is, if we bypass the monkey enclosure we should be ok! I don't want to be a lions breakfast. Lol.
