The decision to go on a safari is a big one. For couples, endless lists of possible destinations, camps, and activities must be discussed. For families, timing can be a limiting factor, as often it’s necessary to be mindful of the hike in prices during school holidays, which usually fall in peak seasons. For a solo traveller, things can be even tougher.
