Journey to Africa to encounter, observe and photograph animals in their natural environment.
The word safari dates back to 1858 from the Arabic word “safara” meaning a journey. Modern-day safari travel has evolved into socially responsible, environmentally friendly journey to Africa to encounter, observe and photograph animals. The “big five” animals travelers wish to see are the elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo and rhinoceros, although many tourists also seek out journeys where they can see gorillas, giraffes, zebras, impalas, hippopotamus and various birdlife. Safaris can be luxury, fly-in, lodge based, budget-oriented, individual or group oriented. When booking a safari, it is important to decide what wildlife you want to see, what time of year you will be traveling, length of stay, what kind of experience you want, and what sort of accommodations and travel style you are looking for.
