For many travelers, there’s no bigger dream than taking a safari. The exotic location, incredible wildlife, and the experience of a lifetime … what could be more memorable?
If you’re looking for the ideal place to take that dream safari, nowhere is better than South Africa. So get ready for your next adventure by booking a South African safari!
Know when to visit
If you’re going on a safari, certain times of year are better than others. If you’re interested in seeing as many animals as possible, then the winter months (between June and September) are best.
Why? All the trees and shrubs in the area have lost their leaves, and that allows you to see the animals more clearly. On the other hand, if you’re more interested in enjoying the sights in general, the summer months (between December and February) are preferable.
During this time, everything is lush, full, and green … which is perfect for photographs!
Think about the kind of safari you want
There’s more than one type of South African safari. From the park you visit to the number of people you go with, the options are remarkably varied.
You’ll need to think carefully about what you want. For starters, consider how private you want your safari to be. Group tours that host between six and eight people are available, as well as more private, customized tours.
When it comes to where you take your safari, there are also many national parks to choose from, such as Kruger National Park and Hluhluwe-iMfolozi.
Determine where you want to stay
The process of choosing a South African safari doesn’t end once you know the type you want. You’ll also need to think about where you are going to stay.
Luckily, there are plenty of accommodations in South Africa. It’s best to choose one that’s close to your safari location, priced well, and fits your needs. Whether you prefer to stay at a resort or inn, or even a guest house or lodge, it shouldn’t be difficult to find the ideal location to spend your time.
Consider how you’ll get there
There are several ways to get to your safari: you can either drive or fly. It’s useful to recall the advantages of either option.
If you choose to drive through South Africa, you’ll see some truly spectacular sights along the way. Flying to your destination can save lot of time, though. If you’re short on time or want the convenience of getting close to a national park, this may be the better choice.
