Some frequently asked questions:
- + Which country is best to visit?
Each country in Africa has its own unique charm and offers a different experience. If your aim is to spend most of your time game viewing – East Africa is a good region to start. This area includes Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and Rwanda. If you would like to relax after your safari there are beautiful beaches along the coast of Kenya and Tanzania and on the several islands, such as Zanzibar and Pemba, just off shore.
- + When is the best time to travel?
Seasons vary from region to region, with dry and rainy seasons predominately in the mid section of the continent and summer and winter seasons in the north and south. We will be happy to provide you with more information for the region you have chosen.
- + What type of accommodations are there?
Safari country offers a variety of Lodge plus tented camp options, from full participation camping to 6 permanent tented camps. South Africa, for example, has possibly the widest range of accommodations, offering hotels, country houses, boutique hotels, guest-houses and lodges. Many countries and regions are not so fully developed for tourism and offer fewer choices. We take pride in matching you with the right accommodations for your adventure.
- + Can we travel with a group or on our own?
Joining a small group of up to a dozen like-minded people can be a cost effective way to travel. However these journeys have scheduled departures and itineraries that may not be exactly what you are hoping for in which case tailor-made itineraries would be better suited for you. We can design itineraries to take you where you want to go, for as long as you want to stay and include any special interests you may have.
- + Is it safe?
While it is generally safe to travel to many countries within the African Continent, situations can arise that make travel to a specific region inadvisable. We keep in close touch with our African colleagues throughout the year and if problems do occur we monitor events and advise our clients accordingly.
