Go Wild on an Authentic African Safari!
An African safari is something every family should do at least once. The best way to explore the African bush is by self-drive. You might be worried that you don’t have a suitable vehicle and all the required camping gear and equipment, but when you hire a 4×4 for your trip across Africa, you will be provided with a fully equipped vehicle designed to handle the harsh environment and rough terrain. At Ivory 4×4 Hire, all you need for an off-road adventure is included in our 4×4 rental package. Your rented 4×4 will already be packed with camping gear, safety equipment, and the accessories needed for a safe and comfortable off-road trip. Now that you know that your transport and accessories are taken care of, it’s time to start planning your African safari, like where you will go, when you will go, what you will do, and where you will stay?
Where You Will Go
Many people like to do a cross-country safari tour, which means they visit several African countries. Popular African safari countries include South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Mozambique, Swaziland, and Lesotho.
When You Will Go
While Southern Africa offers great weather nearly all year, the best time to visit (especially if you want to do some game viewing), is the winter dry season between May and October. The months are warm and dry, especially towards the end of the season. Sparse vegetation means that wildlife can be spotted easily.
What You Will Do
No African safari is complete without participating in a few essential activities, like:
- 4×4 and off-road trails
- Landmark and natural heritage sight seeing
- Visiting cultural villages
Where You Will Stay
An African safari is all about being one with nature. You will find that there are many campsites in African countries. Camping isn’t for everyone though, so if you prefer something more civilised, you can choose from a plethora of hotels, hostels, guest houses, and even Airbnb options.
