What to Expect on a Safari Adventure
Shhh! There’s something truly heart-stopping about pure silence on the African plains. Whether you’re focusing your lens on a pack of elephants in Chobe or searching for that classic David Attenborough moment with the Big Five in Serengeti, a safari is the epitome of adventure. From the turtles of the Galapagos to the rhinos of Nepal, the world is full of wildlife experiences just waiting to be witnessed!
Witness geological wonders
Combine your love of animal spotting with the chance to visit some of the world’s most beautiful and photogenic nature destinations. Olduvai Gorge in Tanzania, for example, is one of the few places in the world where you can discover traces of our earliest ancestors. Rocks in shades of orange sit above grassy plains as dust billows around this geological wonder.
Stay under starry skies
After exploring the open plains and rolling hills, what better way to cement your safari experience than by immersing yourself in the wilderness that surrounds you? After experiencing the extraordinary wildlife, pitch a tent or cosy up in a luxury lodge and fall asleep under the starry African stars. The experience will be something you remember for many years to come!
For an up-close encounter with a majestic beast like a lion, this is the ultimate experience. How many times have you watched a documentary in which mere mortals can observe spectacular species in their natural habitat? Experience it for yourself! A game drive will offer you a chance to venture out into the wild among some of the most exquisite creatures.
Delve into local culture
Wildlife spotting is one reason to go on a Safari, but culture is another. If you want to learn a little about rural life and some of the rituals and customs of Africa, then make sure you visit a Maasai village during your safari. Discover the heritage of these remarkable tribal communities, from their traditional jewellery and dancing to the history of their warriors.
