An African safari is the adventure of a lifetime, promising to be a holiday you will never forget. Are you a lover of wildlife? Are you a lover of travel? Do you want your next holiday to be a magical and memorable experience? If you’ve answered yes to all of these questions, a safari is the perfect way for you to spend your next holiday.
Here are five reasons why your next holiday should be a safari.
1. Get closer to wildlife than ever before
The main reason most people decide to go on safari is to see a diverse range of wildlife in its natural habitat. Taking a safari holiday gives you the opportunity to see the ‘Big Five’ (rhinos, elephants, lions, buffalo and leopards), as well as enjoy birdwatching like never before, allowing you to spot a wide variety of exotic species. All of these animals are spectacular to watch and are also incredibly photogenic. If you have a passion for photography, a safari holiday makes sure you always have something to snap.
Excursions ensure you get the chance to view these animals in the wild, while maintaining your safety at all times. Safari holidays let you sit back and relax, making it an ideal way to de-stress and get back in touch with nature.
2. Make new friends
Of course, there is always the option to plan a safari with your friends or family, making for the ultimate bonding experience. However, no matter who you go on safari with - even if you go alone - you still have plenty of opportunity to make a whole new range of friends.
Share your adventure with other nature lovers from all over the world. Get to know your fellow travellers and meet the local people in the region.
What better way to learn about nature and wildlife than to go out there and experience it first-hand? If you have a passion for these subjects, booking a safari in Africa is the perfect way to learn more about the continent’s various animals; your guides are very knowledgeable and happy to share their expertise with those on holiday.
Family safaris also give children the opportunity to learn all about the animals they see. There are many packages that offer Junior Ranger programs, in which children learn how to track animals as well as discover more about the local culture.
4. Support conservation efforts
When you book an African safari holiday, your costs include conservation fees for the parks you will visit while out there. So, by visiting these beautiful destinations, you not only get the chance to view some of nature’s most incredible species, but your visit actually helps to fund conservation efforts and save some of the world’s rarest species from extinction. This means that your visit will allow generations of other travellers to experience the same sights as you.
Many safaris include a stay at an environmentally responsible lodge or camp, which help to maintain local communities and wildlife.
5. Fantastic value for money
For all that safaris allow you to experience, they are a surprisingly affordable holiday choice. The price of most safaris will include meals, sightseeing, accommodation and a range of activities, such as game walks. While this trip does offer you an adventure like no other, it is actually a very simple way to spend your holiday, letting you reacquaint yourself with nature and see some of the rarest, most beautiful animals in the world.
