Background information and definitions
At some sites, such as at national parks where safaris are a popular means of visitors observing animals, large numbers of people or vehicles approaching mammals may cause them disturbance or cause changes in their behaviour. This may restrict areas that these animals use or affect hunting or feeding opportunities. Setting limits on the numbers of people or vehicles permitted to be in close proximity to such animals may lessen such potential impacts.
