Hi Linda,

It would be a good idea.

Not only do we have kangaroos on the roads but cattle is also roaming freely.

Not that a bullbar would save your car from all damage if you hit a cow, but it would make it safer for yourself as it would give extra strength to the car.

You might well be able to do the trip without such accident if you drive with care, but it depends on how cautious you want to be;

and also how much you care about your car as if you only hit a kangaroo a bullbar could save your car from all or at least most damage.

My daughter will be travelling to the Cape with me in a Kluger and it does not have a bull bar. She will b travelling with 5 other vehicles.

It's impossible to predict and comes down to how much risk she wants to take.

She might get away or she might hit an animal but it's obviously safer to drive accordingly.

Five cars doesn't mean much on dirt roads because the car in front creates so much dust that without keeping enough distance, you won't see what's in front of you anyway - and that's more dangerous than kangaroos.
