Whether you are enjoying Africa on safari or overnighting outdoors on camping trips, a torch is an adventure essential. The Ledlenser P5 Core is pocket-sized and battery-operated, with functions and features for adventure and everyday use.
When night falls in the African bush or on any camping trip, a torch is a safety and lifestyle tool for adventure-lovers. A Ledlenser torch in particular is our top choice for reliability and performance.
The P5 Core merges sturdy construction with versatile light features. With three power modes to choose from, you can adjust the intensity of the light and the reach of the beam according to your needs – with high-quality illumination across all three modes. You can also adjust the light to be a spotlight for focus or a floodlight for more general viewing.
The P5 Core is battery-operated and uses AAA batteries or rechargeable Li-ion. Conserving battery life is easy in low power mode, which provides a light that is great for tasks like reading and working. Overall, this flashlight offers impressive energy efficiency.
When the adventure is over, a great torch is also an everyday accessory. Whether you need a light in a power cut, need light in poorly lit nooks and crannies of the garage, or simply want a torch for safety when driving at night, a Ledlenser torch is compact and reliable for travel and everyday use.
Going on safari or using your torch around wild animals? Torch etiquette on safari and around wild animals: Please note that one should never shine a torch into the eyes of diurnal animals such as deer, antelope, gazelles - and even up to animals as big as elephants. This may result in them becoming dazed, leaving them vulnerable to predators. It may also upset larger mammals such as hippo and elephant, which could cause them to run. Please do not shine on birds at night.
Packing notes for torches from our experts:
• Packing a high-quality torch is essential on all safaris. This is important for your safety at night.
• Not only will a high-quality torch, such as the range we stock from Ledlenser, ensure that you avoid stepping on any reptiles, arachnids, or insects at night when walking back to your room or tent, but you are also able to spot and avoid wildlife which may have wandered into the camp area in the evenings, as most camps are unfenced.
• Spotting wildlife is also good fun at night. Please ensure that you do so from a safe vantage point such as from the lodge or from the comfort of your room or tent. Your guide and lodge staff should be able to assist you in finding the safest position from which to view the animal.
• For guidelines on which animals you should not shine on at night and for other useful torch usage information, please see the section on this page called "Torch etiquette".
General notes from our experts:
• Our expert, honest advice has the sole intention of increasing your enjoyment and safety whilst on safari and comes from years of experience on all types of safaris and adventures in Africa.
• Natural behaviour: For all the activities you enjoy on your safari, please remember that the ultimate safari involves seeing natural behaviour from the animals you have travelled so far to spend time with. What we mean by this is that you and your guide should not confront any animal while on safari, but rather stay a safe distance away from the animal so that they continue with their habits as if you were not there. The holy grail of safaris is to use the wind, sun, and your guide's skills to try view the animal without it ever becoming aware of your presence. Watching an intimate moment between an elephant cow and calf beats an elephant charging you when you venture too close and she feels threatened. Please bear this in mind when viewing animals during the day and at night - no matter how great or small. Wildlife observations in an open, natural habitat are a privilege and leaving animals as undisturbed as possible by our encounters is what we should all strive to achieve.
