Yesterday, our broadcast vehicle (the faithful "Ganda") was called back to camp before the end of drive, due to low batteries. With the Ganda back in the workshop we re-arranged the chargers, to get the most out of them, and get the Ganda back to full power as soon as possible.
*When deep cycle batteries are fully charged they only need a small amount of daily charging to keep them healthy.
This morning at 05h00 the batteries were still not fully charged :( If we sent out the vehicle with low batteries this problem would keep on happening and we would damage the batteries to such a degree that they would not hold any charge, after some time. By giving the batteries this extra rest (charge) we can hopefully get back to broadcasting full 3 hour game drives.
Please join us on our PM Safari at 15h30 Central African Time with a healthy Ganda and hopefully some great game!
