Journey to Africa
The word ‘safari’ comes originally from Arabic and is the term used in Swahili – spoken in East Africa in countries like Zanzibar, Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda – for ‘journey’.
A well-planned safari with a professional guide is for sure the highlight of a trip to Africa. Classic safari destinations include countries like South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda. The aim of most safaris is so see wild animals, experience nature and to capture the perfect photo of the ‘Big Five’: buffalo, elephant, lion, leopard and rhinoceros.
Often visits to the national parks are combined with visiting other sights and exploring the country and its people. On a camping safari you sleep in tents while on a lodge safari you will stay in hotels, lodges and tented camps. As different as the accommodation on a safari might be, as diverse are the means of transportation on safari:
- On foot on a walking safari,
- on horseback on a horse safari,
- in a car on a classic safari
- and in a hot-air balloon on a balloon safari.
