There is no question that the Safari has most certainly come a long way since it’s early days of perhaps a couple of people walking through the bush hacking away to make a clearing. Nowadays in almost every case a safari is tailored to your requirements, needs and your budget. Let’s take a look at some of the differences in tours and options you can choose from.
This is perhaps the most common way to go on a Kenya safari, or wherever it is in Africa you have booked your trip. This is the most common type of safari as it’s the most affordable and has the most choice in destinations. Perhaps 90% of the people who travel to Africa on holiday have limited time, so they go for the 4×4 safari which is very efficient and very affordable for most too. You can easily cover hundreds of miles from park to park as well as see a variation of the countries scenery and its wildlife.
Whether you are staying in the Saadani Safari Lodge, or The Manor at Ngorongoro, you can book up a flying safari. This is one of the most spectacular and memorable ways to see the African scenery and its animals. From the perch of the plane, you get a great bird’s eye view of Savannah and the grasslands below. Not only do you get some of the best views on offer you can also visit more parks and regions of the country due to the speed of flight in comparison to using the roads. If you have the money, then this is without doubt the way to do it. Trips are offered all over Africa including an Okavango Delta safari.
This is somewhat of a unique opportunity for many, and although it only lasts for a few hours around sunrise the views, the experience is not something you will forget easily. Imagine sipping a glass of champagne for breakfast watching the sun rise over the Masai Mara with herds of Elephants strolling beneath you. If an African safari is at the front of your thoughts, then make sure you book up a balloon safari too.
In you next vacation in Africa, try one of these tours in order to enjoy African view at its fullest. These tours might cost you some amount of money, but they are surely worth your investment. The experience that you will get from these tours will make your vacation truly a memorable one.
