What is a WILD Cooler?

It is Africa’s Premier range of high performance, outdoor cooler boxes. Built for the bush and bundu with extra-think insulation, tamper-proof mechanisms, and almost-everything-proof rotomoulded construction.

How strong are WILD Coolers?

Our coolers are as tough as the men we designed them for. We won’t compromise on quality and neither should you. Go ahead and put your cooler through its paces, it’ll take what Africa has to throw at it, we’re certain of that.

How long will my WILD Cooler box keep its ice?

There is no industry standard for measuring ice retention, and we would hesitate to put a time period to ice retention (as some manufacturers attempt to do), because it can vary according to changes in the surrounding environment, ice quality and form and other variables. You can be assured that all possible non-electrical cooler box technology that can be incorporated into our cooler boxes has been – ice retention can therefore be relied upon as the maximum possible, exterior factors notwithstanding.

Remember that the colder your ice when you pack your cooler box, the longer it will last. Block-cut ice chunks starting at –zero temperature will last longer. Ice that is even slightly wet or dripping when it goes in will go much faster. A good tip to help ice retention is to reduce the air inside your cooler box – pack any empty space left, after ice and items are in, with towels or newspapers. Read more ice advice here.

Will my WILD Cooler box keep my hot items hot?

Whether it’s heat or cold you are after, our think walls and polyurethane insulation will keep your contents at whatever temperature you want them.

What size WILD Cooler box should I order?

The current sizes available echo the most popular sizes on the market (40 litre – 80 litre). As a general rule of thumb, you always want to fill your cooler box with as much ice as possible, and have as little empty space in there as possible. So if you only have a few items to keep cool, rather go for the smaller cooler box (40 litre); but if you have more items, upsize to the 60 litre or 80 litre size cooler box.

WILD Cooler boxes are rotomoulded. What does this mean?

Our cooler boxes are made via a high-temperature, low-pressure plastic forming process that creates a hollow, one-piece body. The process is the same one used to manufacture white-water kayaks. It ensures a consistent wall thickness, stronger corners and near-indestructibility.

How should I clean my WILD Cooler box?

For everyday cleaning purposes, soap and warm water will do it. For more intensive cleansing or to clear any odour (odour can get trapped in finicky areas such as around the gasket or drain plug), use warm water and bleach at a ratio of 6:1 and scrub with a rough cloth or sponge.
