The safari trip HAS been made in personal vehicles, but it spooked the animals I guess. There is potential for that happening again, depending upon what the Zoo says. As of now, the answer is no.
The safari ride was $25 for the participants in the rover ride, or $30 for non participants, iirc. It's $100-150 to go with a small group in a pickup truck, instead of a larger group in an open bus. the camping spot is technically free, but the overall event price for the rovers was $95 per vehicle. This included catered dinner at the wilds...I could just as soon skimp on that Fluff to bring the cost down.
No details have been put together, this all speculation based on my experience with the rover group. This thread and some side conversations has been enough to tell me that it would be worth putting together. I'll get with the current organizers of the rover group, and see what I can hash out.
