Go on an African Safari

African Safari

An African safari provides the wildlife experience of a lifetime. Africa’s national parks and game reserves boast some of the best wildlife viewing, if not the best in the world. Talking about an African safari, the term “Big Five” often crops up. The “Big Five” refers to the lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and Cape buffalo. To see some or all of these creatures in the wild is an awesome experience.

Against the dramatic backdrop of sunrise or sunset in the African bush you’ll witness the animals daily fight for survival — the battle to outwit and outrun. That’s what being on safari is all about. The best thing is that the animals rule in this part of the world, so safaris are unpredictable and exciting. Somewhere out there the king of the jungle roams free … but there are no guarantees of finding a lion. So going on safari is not so much about the destination but what you might stumble into along the way.

The best time of year to go on safari is the dry season when the vegetation has thinned out. Water holes always attract animals however experienced guides will help you track animals and identify species. Getting up close to some of the most amazing creatures in the world in wild is an unforgettable experience.
