Recommended Posts

Our wish for Day 19- Repave the Safari road and update the radio transmitters:

As far as I know the road and the radio transmitters haven't been repaired since the Safari was built 35 years ago. It would be great to see the Safari get a nice upgrade. It's one of the park's best features and deserves some love.

Yes, please! Everytime my fiance and I go through the Safari, we always have the same reaction: "Wouldn't new black top just make this place look amazing?" I know pavings expensive so perhaps it could be done section by section. Start at the beginning and do one or two sections per year.

A new black-top would be very nice and make it look better. When I went to the Safari, I don't remember the radio transmitters working. What did it do?

^ If you tune your car radio to 570AM you can pick up a narration spiel which they broadcast from a wire embedded in the center of the Safari roadway.

 

Click the image below to hear (see) a sample of the audio. You can see the wire down the center of the road.

 

(FYI.. the animals were being fed so that is why there aren't that many near the roadway.

I am not sure if improvements were made or not, but the audio for the Safari played from section to section without interuption in high quality sound today!

I keep forgetting about this when we go through it, and I always wish I would have listened to it when we were done. The again between the camera, steering, and then trying to listen I would probably find myself way too distracted smile.gif. But I am glad to hear everything sounded pretty good over the Safari airwaves today.
