Riding in an Open Air Safari Down St. Thomas’s Waterfront

In St. Thomas, it is common to catch a minivan for a taxi ride or – a safari!

A safari is an open-air taxi also known as a truck bed. They usually wait among the waterfront in downtown Charlotte Amalie. Even though prices are set per person and per destination on the island (think zones), you can bargain with them about the price of a ride.

The safaris are so comfy – they are converted to have 2-3 benches in the back. Take two steps in, hold onto the railing, and you’re off!
