There are various factors to consider when planning a safari holiday to Africa, and to new comers, it can seem like an overwhelming task. In this blog, we provide you with a few tips for planning your African safari.
Boasting remote tropical beaches, sprawling deserts, lush mountains, thundering waterfalls, and majestic wildlife; the African terrain offers a wide array of attractions worth exploring. While it would be wonderful to experience them all, this is virtually impossible unless you have an abundance of time and money.
From some of the most luxurious lodges imaginable to more rustic and modest camps, there is plenty of accommodation options in Africa to suit the needs and budget of every traveler. The most crucial factor to consider here is your budget and what you are willing to spend on your accommodation. You should know that some lodges are all-inclusive of meals and activities, while others might charge additional for certain activities. It’s also important to research the venue thoroughly and read guest reviews.
Depending on where you’re going, and what you want to experience, the timing of your safari holiday is crucial. For instance, if you want to see the Okavango Delta in flood, the best time to visit would be between May and August, but the best time to see the Wildebeest Migration in the Masai Mara is between August and November.
All these particular details can make the idea of planning an African safari holiday seem a little overwhelming. That’s why we are here! We are the African experts and are waiting to help you tailor-make your ideal safari experience, down to the very last detail.
