Many people dream of doing an African safari, but when it comes time to get the ball rolling, they have no idea where to start. This is a good place to start. The aim of the website is to help you get the absolute most out of your safari, with focussed tips based on planning and execution.
A safari isn’t just about seeing animals. How you see them (the quality of the experience) is far more important then how many you see (quantity). The potential of the experience is huge and seeing wildlife is just one aspect. The overall experience should be life changing, regardless of the budget. It should be so much more then any other ‘holiday’ you might go on. It should be an overwhelming, multi-sensory experience where you feel excited, humbled, intrigued, overwhelmed, daunted and overjoyed. By the time you leave, Africa’s wilderness should be pulsing beneath your skin, and you should feel like you have left a piece of yourself somewhere in the wilderness.
Needless to say, not all safaris will give you this feeling. There are so many factors that will go a long way towards making or breaking your experience, and I will highlight these here. I will also cut through the marketing spin so prevalent in many the online presence of most safari camps, and give you a much clearer picture of what the ultimate safari experience looks like.
