Safari holidays are something you just have to do at least once in your life. The once in a lifetime opportunity of seeing giraffes, zebras and possibly the odd lion or elephant (if you’re lucky), unfortunately wont just happen – unless you live in Africa that is!
Africa doesn’t have easily identifiable seasons, with it mainly being warm all year round. However the best time to go on safari for wildlife would be during the dry season, with fewer water holes making it easy to track the animals and the added help of thinner bush meaning animals are easier to spot.
Safaris can be enjoyed by everyone and are a great family activity, as it can inspire children. Spend the morning watching wildlife in their natural environment, and then visit the locals and learn about their way of life.
There are a number of ways to view the animals when on a safari, the most popular is not surprisingly car; however you can also go on horseback, or elephant back. Elephant back is particularly good as the elephant won’t scare away other animals so you can get closer and you get a great view (and better safari snaps to take home!).
