All you need to know about Safari Tours

Are African safaris dangerous?

Every African safari trip has an element of danger, but it’s easy to stay safe if you follow the basic safari rules. Always keep your entire body in the vehicle, don’t make any loud noise, turn off your camera flash, don’t walk around at night alone, wear boots and socks in the bush, and always listen to your safari guide.

Is Safari better in Kenya or Tanzania?

Both Kenya and Tanzania are excellent destinations for your African safari travel experience, as both are home to the Big Five and the Great Migration. While Kenya is known as a superb place to see big cats, black rhinos and exotic animals like the sitatunga, Tanzania has the world's largest concentration of animals, including the largest concentration of cheetahs and unique animals like tree-climbing lions and African wild dogs.

What is the best month to go on an African safari?

The best time to go on an African safari tour varies between the different seasons of East and Southern Africa. Generally, the best months to go are the dry season months of June to October. During this time, animals migrate and are easier to spot as they gather around the few remaining water sources.

What is the best place to go on safari?

The best places to go on a safari holiday are Kenya and Tanzania where you can see the Big Five and the Great Migration. You can also spot the Big Five and other incredible wildlife in South Africa and Zambia. We love going on water safaris in Botswana, seeing desert-adapted wildlife in Namibia and spotting tigers in India.
