Why you should go on a safari to Africa

Why Africa?

Safari!! Just the word makes you excited as to what may lie ahead! Safari can be defined as an expedition to observe animals in their natural habitat. From the Swahili – “to journey or to travel”.

Africa is synonymous with wild life and wild life safaris. A safari to Africa will de – stress you like no other holiday as you immerse yourself in the fascinating animals, close encounters, delightful accommodation and meals, the many and varied eco systems from desert to delta, savannah to open plains and rainforests to mountains – Africa has it all.

The African people, especially the tribal people, are some of the friendliest that you could encounter anywhere in the world. Smiles comes easily. Sharing their culture and humour is part of their welcome to visitors and the pride and pleasure shown by the very professional game guides as they intrigue you with stories, facts and folklore of the bush is something not to be missed. The vehicles all are designed to give you the very best opportunity to see and photograph all manner of wild life in their natural habitat.
