When it comes to Safaris Africa is definitely a top destination. If you’re thinking about going on an African Safari but don’t know where to begin booking, planning, calling, you should think about contacting a local Safari Tours operator.
There are plenty to choose from and will be able to help you with any Safari queries or concerns. Here is a look at their Africa Safari Guide:
1. First you’ll need to think about your destination. There are so many places in Africa to visit but you can’t see them all in one trip unless you plan on spending a year traipsing across the continent. You can choose between Southern Africa and Eastern Africa and just some of the exotic destinations include Botswana, South Africa, Zambia, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and Rwanda. It’s up to you which one of these exciting destinations you want to visit.
2. Now think about the actual Safari. Consider how much time you have to enjoy the safari, how much money you can afford to spend and how comfortable or rough you want your expedition to be. The tour operators will have tailor-made, guided, specialised, scheduled, and overland safari options for you to choose from.
3. You’ll also need to consider your accommodation needs. There are so many lodging options; it all depends on what level of comfort and luxury you require. Do you mind camping or would you prefer to stay in a hotel? Your tour operator will be able to organise and book you accommodation with service that is professional, gourmet dinners, lavish furniture and incredible views (think sunset and sunrises in Africa) in an atmosphere that is uniquely African.
4. Now think about when you want to visit Africa. If you’re not too sure about when is the best time to visit Namibia for example, the operator you choose will have enough experience of Africa to be able to tell you.
You can also ask your tour operator to help you find a Safari that suits your personality or needs. They have Honeymoon Safaris for newly-married or unmarried couples to experience Africa in a romantic light. You’ll be able to relax with your loved one in a stunning setting and be pampered by professional staff.
For the more adventurous there are African Adventure Safaris perfect for exploring the new and exciting aspects of the landscape. You’ll have to pitch your own tent but will be in the company of like-minded travelers and beautiful scenery.
Otherwise why not ask them about going to the Kruger National Park. If you love nature and want to explore the wilderness this is the perfect adventure for you. You’ll venture out into the remote bush for the day and then be able to return to a hot shower, an excellent meal and good conversation around the fireplace.
In Africa there is every kind of Safari adventure available that will delight and excite you. Once you’ve been on one Safari you’ll want to do them all.
Here is a list of African Safari must-bring:
Neutral colours – you do not want to be out in the bush wearing a bright-pink jersey or luminous green jacket. Make sure you get the correct colour clothes (beige/tan, khaki and light brown/green).
Sun block – the African sun can be unforgiving at times so it’s always best to slather on a good amount of sun block to keep your skin safe from the hot rays.
Anti-Malaria Medication – in some parts of Africa you will be required to take a course of anti-Malaria medication. Ask your doctor for more information.
Your costume and towel – you never know what amazing rivers and damns you’ll be able to take a dip in.
Good shoes – a good pair of hiking boots will save your feet from getting blisters and make your trip much more comfortable.
A small first-aid kit – with plasters, anti-allergy medication, anti-septic cream etc.
Pocket knife – these will always come in handy on a Safari trip.
A good book – you’ll be able to while away hours relaxing and reading under the African sun when not game viewing.
