These binoculars have a 10 yr warranty, so you may contact steiner (http://www.steiner-binoculars.com/) for repair for a nominal charge, however there is an easy fix: You'll need a small (about 1/4 in) screw driver.
1. remove the objective lens protector. This is the small metal piece on the binocular side that is loose, opposite from the eyepiece(part you look through). It appears impossible to "pop" loose from the outside, but if you slip your finger inside(try not to smudge the lense), you'll feel a significant ridge. You may be able to pull / pop it off with your finger, or a small handle.
2. Tighten the screw that is now exposed. Do not overtighten, just a little tighter than what it takes to keep it from "falling" on its own weight.
3. Pop the lens protector back on the object lens.

Which is better for wildlife safari monocular or binocular?

In your choice of Which is better for wildlife safari, you will have to consider what you are actually looking out for first. Do you want some thing light and portable at the expense of some extra comfort and convenience? Or you would rather be as relaxed as possible and get all the glimpse in style but bear the burden that comes with this. Monocular are Sometimes perceived as inferior to binoculars for wildlife viewing because of the flatter image derived from a single objective lens. But monocular have the advantage of being easier to carry and lighter in weight than binoculars. A monocular can fit in your pocket or be carried on a strap around your neck or looped on your belt. Although Observing with both eyes open is certainly more comfortable and relaxing than just with one.

I can't focus the binos anymore looking through both lenses at the same time, it's distorted

You have asked about what is one of the most common binocular problems. I hope that you don't mind if I paste my generic answer below as there's no point in reinventing the wheel. If the answer does not provide a solution then please state your exact Nikon Action model and add any extra details which may help.

Your binoculars either have a bent or broken yoke assembly (the bit which carries the eyepieces) or one or more prisms have came unseated.

The first repair involves replacing the entire yoke assembly: the part is expensive in comparison to the retail cost of a new pair of binoculars and with labour charges on top is not usually a cost-effective repair except on really high end expensive models and you can buy a brand new pair of Nikon Action binoculars for less than GBP£90.

The second repair is straightforward and fairly quick for anyone with the right collimation equipment, but the screw(s) need to be secured with thread-locking liquid afterwards.

I hope you manage to use this information to fix your binoculars or at least that it assists you to choose your next course of action. Please take a moment to rate the free answer I have provided for you and any testimonial which you might wish to add is always welcome!

I have Minolta Pocket 8x24/8.7, 40 year old binoculars. One side is "limp" and doesn't stay in position for viewing. Fix??

Most compact binoculars have a central bridge. The objective (big lens) end of the binocular hinge usually has a ball bearing in it. The other end may either have a blanking cap or a hub where the neck strap attaches. Removing this cap or hub will reveal a grub screw which tightens another ball bearing against the bridge. Take the appropriate part off the limp side and look for the grub screw. Tightening it will decrease the "limpness". Be careful, as these are sometimes set in place with a locktite of some kind. Best to release pressure first before tightening.
