I am planning to go on a 3-4 day safari with my mother - however, I am getting worried about the drives and how bumpy they may or may not be. My mother has arthritis in both knees and has to have one replaced soon. I think it should be okay as I do have some experience of such roads from living in Ethiopia, but have not done a safari in Tanzania Northern circuit. Are the roads really stressful on the legs, and full of constant bumps along the way?
We are hiring a private vehicle so guess we will have autonomy in adapting the trip if it is too much in places - is this how it works?
Lastly - strange question but are there plenty of stops to use the bathroom or is it a case of being in the car for 6 hours with no respite?
Apologies for my ignorance and thanks in advance for any responses
