2020 has been an exceptionally tough year for travel, but as the world slowly emerges from lockdown and countries begin to reopen their borders to tourists, we’re here to tell you why Africa is the perfect post-lockdown destination.
Africa awards you with vast open spaces and time to reconnect to the stillness of nature. It can be pretty stressful being anywhere close to big crowds. On safari, you get the chance to swap this for vast sparsely populated spaces.
For years, people have chosen to come on safari to disconnect from their fast paced lives in overcrowded cities and unwind in the vastness and stillness of Africa. Gathering around a crackling fire with no distractions aside from the sound of the bush in the background is the perfect antidote.
The sense of place you feel in these wilderness areas is unparalleled. The only peeking neighbour you may have is an elephant looking over at your private deck or, if you're lucky, a lion. If you want that extra level of privacy, you can hire a private safari vehicle or even book out some camps exclusively for your group.
When you're on safari, the environment is your playground - you can enjoy activities and meals in the open-air, limiting interaction and the possible spread of COVID-19. Game drives, are considered open-air activities and are, therefore, relatively safe.
The presence of a safari camp in an area helps to ensure the safety of wildlife. While travelling in your game vehicle, you add to the number of boots on the ground and help to deter any potential poachers from coming into the area.
