Tips to Enjoy the Ultimate African Safari Experience

The essence of the untamed beauty on an African safari promises the most rewarding and enriching holiday experience, which has seen this segment of tourism rise steadily. The magnetic pull of majestic Africa sees millions of visitors travelling from across the globe wanting to savour its delights. The continent is famed for its amazing wealth of wildlife housed within its diverse wilderness landscapes.

Ask any safari-goer what constitutes the success of a safari adventure and the most common reply would include how many of the ‘Big Five’ - lion, rhino, leopard, elephant, buffalo - have been spotted. While not exactly a science, animal spotting while on safari can be successful upon applying a few tips to your safari adventure.

A popular suggestion is to choose the right safari season. In Southern Africa the dry season affords the best game viewing opportunities. Vegetation during this season thins out and water holes draw huge concentrations of a wide variety of animals. Optimal game viewing times are either at dawn or at dusk. During the day most animals prefer to be quiet camouflaged under the shade of trees or bushes.

To maximize on African safari adventure it would be useful to follow a few simple guidelines:

  • Heed the advice of your expert guide at all times
  • Never under any circumstances approach or feed animals in the wild
  • Swimming in rivers is ill-advised unless your guide gives you the go ahead
  • Wear appropriate footwear such socks and boots when on a walking safari
  • Do not go walking around the camp in the dark or at night

The cornerstone to any African safari adventure is the ‘obligatory’ visit to the iconic Kruger National Park. Exciting options of walking safari’s, daily game drives or safari night drives are available. Night game drives, in particular, afford better possibilities of viewing nocturnal animals like the hyena or the shy leopard.

The natural attractions of the Southern African paradise comprised of the Kruger National Park of South Africa, Botswana’s Okavango Delta wetland and the adrenaline-enthused activities of the Victoria Falls are unrivalled in providing the ultimate African safari experience.
