PLANNING YOUR SAFARI

 

Always be well informed about where you going, what you will need to get there and when is the best time to be there.

When we help plan your safari we are always suggesting the most Eco-friendly places and methods in which to travel. Africa has many quirks and a huge variety of cultures, wildlife and landscapes all which need to be treated with the utmost respect. We have a motto which goes "leave only your foot prints". Always think about the future!

  

*Weather & Season

Game-viewing tends to be at its best during the dry season (May - September). Water is extremely limited so animals are drawn to the few water holes available. During this season, fascinating game-viewing is almost guaranteed. The temperatures can be quite hot, but nights cool down nicely.

Game-viewing during the wetter seasons (September - April) is still phenomenal. Sightings may not be quite as common during these months, but the bird-life is abundant and babies are born. The rainy season does not mean constant rain all day long. Instead, southern African rainy seasons are characterized by warm days and cooler nights (but still comfortable) and normally a predictable thunderstorm in the afternoon. Apart from this period, the sun is usually shining.

Keep in mind that Africa's seasons are reversed from the winter/summer of the northern hemisphere so that the coldest months are June and July and the hottest are November and December.

*Accommodation & Costing

We offer a wide range of accommodation from luxury en-suite tented camps and safari lodges to comfortable bush camps in the parks and also mobile tent safaris. Luxury tented camps are designed with your complete comfort in mind and allows you to experience Africa in a unique way. Tents are made of canvas and some have a wooden frame, with doors and/or a thatch roof, they have en-suite bathroom facilities including a hot shower, basin with mirrors and toilets. The beds are comfortable with thick mattresses and pillows and if needed cozy blankets. Some tents are built on raised platforms with balconies offering excellent viewing.

On mobile camping safaris you will be accommodated in large dome tents with standing room, complete with camp beds, mattresses, sheets, duvets, pillows and towels. Toilet facilities and showers are always available in all the camps visited. The campsite is moved every few days depending on game concentration and tour itinerary. Tents are erected on ground level, beds are in the form of sturdy cots with thick camp mattresses, bedding & pillows). You may need to rough it at times but it will be an unforgettable experience and you will feel one with nature.

Your days will normally consist of 3 full meals, 2 game drives or a alternative activity such as a boat cruise or mokoro Trip, and time for relaxing. Most camps have a swimming pool. Your guide will be your host and go to every effort to make you feel comfortable and at home. Your safari will be individually priced depending on the size of your group, the countries and areas visited, camps and lodges used, air charters and safari activities undertaken and any special interests.

The average safari will range from approximately $350.00 to $450.00 per day. 

We prefer to keep your safari as personalized as possible - one to eight guests is ideal. However we can accommodate large groups for educational school trips, business break always etc.
