Safari Holidays – The Best of The Best
A safari is basically an overland journey, usually referring to a long journey in an African context. Fortunately, your explorations or vacation to Africa doesn’t have to be all that long, depending on the preferences you discuss with your tour operator. At Journey Into Africa Tours And Safaris we can either offer you a tour that’s an existing package or one that’s designed from scratch. We cater for the most luxurious packages as well as more basic tours within your budget. Even standard packages come with comfortable accommodation and all the amenities you could look for on holiday. Safari holidays are great – you travel a lot, see new things everyday, sleep in style and meet new people all the time.
The Kruger National Park is high on the list of destinations to visit and it is easy to see why. You can either stay in the Park itself or you can stay in one of the exquisite lodges that dot the borders of the park. Private game reserves, such as Sabi Sabi, offer 3 to 5 star accommodation and trained staff endeavour to meet your each and every need. Safari holidays to this part of the country are always a plus as guests are certain to sight the Big Five, and with a good guide also the “Small Five”.
Game drives in open trucks or vehicles are highlights of safari holidays. You will feel the sun on your face and the wind in your hair and a guide who knows where the leopard’s territory is and which waterhole is the best for sightings will help you enjoy the best viewing. If you spend some time next to a waterhole you might even see a jackal or a family of jackal coming for a drink.
Safari holidays are not only about luxury and big game viewing although that is the highlight. Take the trouble to purchase a bird book and start to identify the various birds of the region – the bateleur will be high up riding the wind currents while the ground hornbill will be hopping on the ground. Watch out for the secretary bird, maybe you will find him busy devouring a snake. Tree books also come in handy; ask the guide to point out the largest fig trees, or get lost in the beauty of a Mopani scrub land in the northern part of Kruger.
