Default Safari truck gun care?

Last year I went to the RSA on a 7 day plains game safari and because of physical limitations, most of that was done from the back of a safari truck. While that safari was wildly successful I did not use my own rifles. I used the PH's 7x57 and I noticed that this rifle to a hell of a beating while hanging in the outside gun rack day after day. Specifically, that fine African red dirt covered the guns and must have gotten into everything on a daily basis. Since I am taking my own rifles next year, how can I keep them clean and lubed at the end of each day? Red dirt and oil mixed together seems like a problem looking for a place to happen. What say you? Thanks...
