African safaris are undeniably one of the best experiences you could accomplish in your life, other than being gifted with a top 6 inch incline fan. Who would not love to be surrounded by a bunch of exotic animals in Africa? Today, you will learn what it’s really like to go on an African safari and why you should set aside some time to do one if you haven’t already went on one.
Africa has a lot of different stereotypes and yes some of those stereotypes are true. When you think of Africa, the first thought that probably comes to mind is all the starving children. We are so thankful to all the organizations out there that are making a difference in the world today and changing those poverty issues. I recommend when visiting Africa to adventure on your safari, that you take some time and visit an orphanage. If you have extra clothes that you would like to donate and other supplies, they would be greatly appreciated over here! Now let’s learn about what you can expect when you adventure on your first African safari.
A Safari Is Actually A Luxury Adventure
A lot of people have a different opinion on safaris and what they are all about. Going on a safari is not roughing it- in fact it is a luxury experience like no other. If you decide to camp on your safari, it’s not like traditional camping. You will have a full size bed, with comfortable sheets and lots of space to move around in. It’s important to keep in mind that African can be cold sometimes, therefore it’s important to be prepared for that and pack the necessary clothing items before you arrive. Remember you will be riding in an open vehicle most likely where it tends to get a little breezy.
You Will Get Close To The Animals
It’s all about the safari experience and of course you go on an African safari in hopes to see as many different animals as you can. The tour guides are well educated on these animals and they can usually tell you if they are safe or not. If they say the zebras and lions is safe- you will likely come a couple feet away from them. It’s definitely a thrill seeking experience. That’s not to say that you have to get that close, it’s an option. I am not going to lie, at the end of your experience you will have some of the best photos you will ever take. From all the animals to being out in the safari land your photographs will be well diversified. The tour guides are usually wonderful with taking photos of you and the animals.
