Gliding along on your magical Segway platform feels like how one imagines men in space suits feel when visiting the moon or Pluto. However, when gliding through spectacular valleys and clumps of herbivores of Lion Park, it becomes an otherworldly experience of quite a different kind. Experience the magic of the looking into the eyes of a giraffe and floating through untouched wilderness. Watch the sun set over the hills with family, friends or sweethearts or race off into the sunset with fellow speed freaks and see who can spin the sweetest donut. One barely has to move a muscle to get the little offroad moon buggy going – when it’s on the move you can reach speeds of up to 20km/h, make a 360 with the niggle of the wrist and kick up dust clouds in the shape of the big five. Though it looks like something out of a scifi feature, navigating and controlling the Segway requires no computer knowledge or artificial intelligence – it’s like riding a bicycle with wheels next to one another. The tour starts with a 15 minute practice run through an obstacle course where the tour guide teaches you safety measures, maneuverers and the difference between break and petrol always good to know. This tour is the one place where offroad and onroad is practically one in the same, hence a lack of navigation skills can easily be covered by an ‘I just wanted to see this anthill up close’ excuse. Whether it’s the beauty of Mother Nature, quality time with family or the chance to try out this nifty little space trooper that you’re after, this Groupon is for you. Tour fact The saying ‘like the palm of my hand’ was the brainchild of Sir Roger McDuffy. He was a tour guide with no navigational skills and drew the route on his hand. One day when a man asked him why he keeps looking at his palm, Sir Roger replied ‘be quiet or your face will get to know the palm of my hand’. The phrase we know today came from the revised story he told his grandchildren.
