Your First Safari


“We spent a total of 5 days in the Serengeti exploring its wildlife and were fortunate enough to see the ‘big five’. We learned so much…the ultimate safari experience. ” ― R Landman, Uganda

Congratulations! you’re considering a safari to Africa, as well you should. Compared to other destinations around the world, we receive a fairly low number of travelers every year, making it a relatively exclusive experience even now.

It’s our belief that you haven’t really lived until you’ve been to Africa. Not only is it a place of raw beauty and mind-blowing experiences, but many first time visitors remark that Africa has a way of connecting with their primal self, that when they arrive here, this is a place that they feel is truly ‘home’.

With the variety of adventures, cultures, habitats and wildlife available to you, this is for sure: Once you’ve been, Africa will always have a hold on your heart, and as with many others, you will find yourself wanting to return again and again.

Options For First-Time Safaris

Clients on safari, Kaokoland, Namibia

It is pretty daunting to think you are coming to Africa, so you’d be looking to make sure your experience is memorable for all the right reasons. Good options for first-time visitors are to be found in most of the destinations we offer, but Kenya, Tanzania and Botswana offer just the right combination of convenient, affordable logistics, superb accommodations and wildlife that is more easily seen if you’re in the right location.

If you’re feeling a little more adventurous, then perhaps you wouldn’t mind starting off with one of our other more challenging destinations: Ethiopia, where the accommodation standards are a little less consistent, Zambia, Uganda and Rwanda, where you encounter big game on foot, or Namibia, where you might feel like a multi-day camping hike or a self-drive safari. Alternatively, you might want to mix in a traditional safari experience with something a little edgier, and travel to more than one country.

We’ve had lots of “safari virgins” travel with us, and it’s always an added thrill for the team here to know that we’re planning a safari to welcome a client to Africa for the first time. Over and above our normal impeccable attention to detail, your guides will be informed, and will gauge your activities appropriately. We will include little extras to make this safari as special and memorable as possible for you.
