Check “African Safari” Off Your Bucket List This Year
If you have a bucket list and an African safari features on it, why put it off? There is no time quite like the present to start planning your African escape. There is so much to see and do in Africa! Your first step would be to choose what countries you would like to explore. A typical cross-border African safari should include time spent in one or a few of the following top countries: South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Mozambique, Swaziland, and Lesotho.
An African safari in any of the above-mentioned countries is ideal for game viewing and getting back to nature. In fact, few places in the world can compare with what is on offer in terms of game, wildlife, and flora in any of these bordering countries.
You will have to spend a bit of time deciding how you want to get around from country to country. Signing up as part of a tour group is one option and for many it is ideal. You will certainly get to see the top sights and destinations and your game drives and adventures will be scheduled and arranged for you, so there is some structure and predictability. However, for those more adventurous at heart and those who like to do things on their own steam, hiring a 4×4 and doing a self-drive tour is a great option. In fact, it is the best option.
No African safari is about visiting only the commercial attractions, game parks, and tourist hotspots. It is about plotting an off-road route and making your way to some of the lesser-known spots, where locals have had the natural beauty and awe-inspiring views and sights to themselves for years. It is about driving for hours through a national park, spotting the Big Five, and then settling into an evening of campfires, shared stories of the day, and gazing at a sky that seems to be filled with millions of stars. You can do this on a self-drive African Safari. And trust us, you will love it!
Do not spend your life simply overlooking that African safari bucket list entry. Make it a reality.
