Safari Travel Tips
Before stepping on that plane for a marvelous safari adventure,
plan like there's no tomorrow. You will thank your self for
being precautious when faced with untoward incidents.
Here are the important things you should consider when going on
a safari travel:
1. Remember that it is one challenging endeavor.
Planning a safari can be one of the most exciting feats one can
ever manage to make happen. It is not one of the generic
travels, usual jetsetters indulge in. Though you are provided
with a tour brochure and a tourist guide, it still is better to
research on your own regarding the various itineraries.
2. Best spots for safari should be spotted.
The most suggested parts of Africa to enjoy safari include East
and Central Africa, Southern Africa and Indian Ocean Islands.
3. Prepare for the climate.
It is a must to know the seasonal trends and how they will
affect your travel. But also remember that the weather is
fickle-minded so you can never really accurately predict the
outcome of your travel if you will base it one the weather alone.
If you are going to visit East and Central Africa, long rains
start early in April to early June. Short rains abound during
late November to December.
Southern Africa has its rainy season from late November through
mid-April for the safari areas. However, during that time, it
will be summer in Southern Cape.
When one prefers Indian and Ocean Islands he or she can expect
seasonal trend to be more like of that of Southern Africa.
In these islands, summer rains last from November through April.
Cyclones can also be experienced during those seasons. From May
to October, the dry season occurs.
4. Choose your activities.
Among others, safari traveling offers these fun-filled
a. gorilla trekking b. sailing c. birdwatching d. participatory
camping e. self driving
5. Know what you can afford.
When choosing a trip, budget constraints should never be
overlooked. Decide on a price range that you can work on. To
make your budgeting more effective consider the level of luxury
of your safari travel, length of your trip, activities,
accommodations preferences, meals and season.
6. Determine your travel style.
Do you prefer your safari to be more luxurious, moderate or
rustic? Will you let kids tag along? Are you traveling with a
group or will you be one bold, independent traveler? Will you
travel by air or road? What about your guide and your vehicle?
Answering those questions will more or less improve your
overview of your dream safari travel.
