The next question that you should consider is, is there anything specific that you’d like to see? Are you particularly keen to see the Big Five? Maybe you want to witness the Great Migration during the river-crossing season? Or is it the small wildlife that you’d like to take centre stage during your safari – meerkats, anyone?
For example, if it’s all the members of the Big Five that you’re after, or an individual member such as elephant or lion, this will greatly influence what type of safari you should be planning. For travellers hoping to spot all the Big Five in one place, we recommend focusing on the national parks and reserves of Tanzania, Kenya, and South Africa that are renowned for their big game sightings. Opting for a traditional safari in the likes of the Serengeti, Maasai Mara, or Kruger will definitely boost your chances of ticking all the boxes on your Big Five checklist.
And it’s worth bearing in mind that a traditional safari combines well with other activities. So if you also want to experience the cascading waters of Victoria Falls, the magnificent white shores of Zanzibar, or the perennially colourful streets of Cape Town, we can book these as add-ons that would influence the structure and sequence of your holiday.
