The Minelab Safari metal detector was introduced in 2009 and is still in production. The Safari is a multifrequency VLF metal detector aimed primarily at coin, jewelry, relic, and beach detecting.
"Powered by Minelab's Full Band Spectrum (FBS) multiple frequency technology, the Safari combines deep, sensitive and accurate detecting for anyone demanding both simplicity and performance. Safari uses advanced digital filtering to eliminate the influence of ground signals automatically so you can experience easy, seamless detecting whatever the field conditions. With its High Trash Density setting, Target Ids and audio tones are updated when sweeping over closely spaced targets fast! This improves the recovery of deeply buried high conductivity targets in a trashy environment and allows you to more accurately identify the type of target found. The Safari is also available in the Safari Pro Pack which includes RPG PH100R Headphones with adjustable headband and left and right channel volume controls, a NiMH rechargeable Battery Pack and a mains battery charger (240v or 110v version depending on country). Discover the adventure and excitement of detecting with a Safari today!" Source: Minelab website
