I am not an early riser but on safari I am ready and waiting at 6am in eager anticipation of what each morning’s game drive might bring – each one is unique.
Experience raw beauty, ever-changing landscapes and an array of exotic flora and fauna. Safari means ‘journey’ in Swahili, and every moment you spend with African soil beneath your feet will forever be a precious memory of your journey of self-discovery. Africa is not just a place, it’s an experience. Rather than choosing your destination first, it can be useful to consider the type of safari that you want. There are a number of factors to take into account, with budget often a solid starting point. But it’s also good to have an idea of how you plan to travel around, if you like the thought of staying in tented camps or traditional lodges, and whether you’re happy to join an organised group safari or would prefer to tailor-make your own. Africa must be seen to be truly understood!
