Minelab Safari Metal Detector

Hidden treasures are now within your reach with Minelab’s new user-friendly detector- Safari!

Powered by Minelab’s FBS multiple frequency technology, Safari combines deep, sensitive and accurate detecting for anyone demanding both simplicity AND performance!

Ready for parks, beaches or the battlefields. Only Minelab’s FBS technology will provide outstanding performance even on saltwater beaches! The Safari’s digital target ID is ready to deliver deep, accurate information on the targets you’re looking for!

Most detectors on the market operate on a single (or dual) frequency, ranging from 1 to 70 kilohertz (kHz). Although this technology has served the industry well for years, Minelab’s scientists found that a frequency that worked well in one area would often offer only marginal performance when used in another location. Ground mineralization, trash content, and target size all had an effect on how effective a detector transmitting a single frequency would operate.

Safari Features:

  • Ultra-lightweight 11″ Double D coil combines high performance, great depth and sharp pinpointing.
  • Four pre-programmed Detection Modes-Coin; Coin/Jewelry; Relic and All Metal.
  • Four Programmable user modes.
  • Linear -10 to +40 discrimination scale. Accept/Reject functionality.
  • Fully Automatic and manual sensitivity control options.
  • Pinpoint with audio and visual indicators for accurate detection.
  • Trash Density-High ensures fewer false signals experienced in typical coin and relic environments, Low is ideal for clean sites.
  • Noise Cancel-automatically selects the quietest, most stable channel for detecting.
  • Continuous depth gauge updating.
  • Menu Interface-Intuitive menu structure for fast and easy access and adjustment.  Clear view target depth gauge; Target ID number; Target Icon (in Coin and Coin/Jewelry Modes)  Mode indicators and Graphic Identification Bar showing active discrimination pattern.
  • Robust, well balanced design for comfortable detecting over longer periods.

The Full Band Spectrum (FBS) circuit automatically transmits multiple frequencies simultaneously. This increased frequency range means that the signal received from the detector coil is analyzed from a wide range of responses.  This information is relayed to the operator via the speaker or headphones and the control panel’s liquid crystal display as an audio or visual target response.

Put simply, Minelab’s unique FBS technology means deep, sensitive, accurate detecting

Operating Frequencies

A metal detector’s electromagnetic operating frequencies are measured in kilohertz (kHz). Low signal frequencies (e.g. 1.5 kHz) penetrate deepest, but sensitivity to smaller targets is low. On the other hand, higher frequencies have a more shallow depth of penetration but high sensitivity to small targets. The Safari’s multiple-frequency operation provides the advantage of both.

  • 11″ DD Search Coil
  • Excellent Recovery
  • 8 AA Batteries (Alkaline)
