Reasons for going on an African safari.

An African safari is the best experience anyone can get through traveling, wildlife viewing in Africa has been made easy by the National Geographic documentary magazine , here one can visit the zoo and watch variety of wildlife species or proceed to the national parks as well as reserves to view  more of these animal species. Earning a successful safari can be got through contacting a professional tour operator who will be able to arrange a detailed itinerary for your safari or a traveler can be interested in making personal research to view wildlife in any given destination.

African tours involves many wildlife game drives, staying in far remote areas as well as observing the general behavior and the nature of the animals. A traveler decides to distance him or herself from the modern world where internet is ignored but available, no newspapers, turned off cell phones, no television s as well as Radios. More so, there are no crowds of people, no food chain restaurants, as well as man made noises. Each day spent on an African safari is a series of unique and unexpected experience of natural events.

Many travelers never know which game they will encounter on their safaris, some of the many wildlife species include; the bull elephants that keep on charging the safari vehicles, variety of wildebeests running away from the predators, playing leopards, matting lions, baby elephants seen helping each other, as they climb the muddy watering hole, the vervet monkeys are seen stealing water and food, as well as hippos changing its big pink hue in the noonday sun shine. The other wildlife families include; giraffes, hyenas, leopards, warthogs, zebras, wildebeests, zebras, elephants, cape buffaloes, gazelles, vultures, mongooses as well as ostriches.

Within the jungle, each animal species plays a different role within the Eco system. Some of these are predators, others are scavengers and the others are prey species. The predators usually attack the soft tissues as well as the vital organs, while the other predators eat calcium which is rich in bone or tough outer hides which leaves few animal remains to the landscape. Each African safari is a unique adventure and provides an opportunity to the travelers to meet many different people around the world as well as acquiring knowledge of any African adventure safari.

Deciding which African country to Visit.
The continent of Africa has got over 54 countries, the many safaris carried out with in Africa are available in 3 distinct African regions and there are mainly 8 countries which are visited individually and others are combined on safaris. The main safari regions in Africa include; South Africa which is also a country, East Africa which includes; Uganda, Tanzania, Kenya, as well as Rwanda. The last safari region also include; Southern Africa which has Botswana, Zambia and Namibia.
Deciding the country to safari depends on the animal species that the traveler wants to view or observe and this is also determined by the land scape as well as rainfall. These include; treed woodland common for elephants, Umbrella acacia trees on savannah famous for variety of prey, predators as well as bird diversity, the scrublands as well as the semi desert are known for birds as well as reptiles, wetland, rivers and lakes are known for hippos and crocodiles, forests for mountain gorillas and birds, coastal beaches and coral reefs common for sea life.
Narrowing choices is about deciding which animals as well as the correspondence country of residence plus the national park to select from. Many of the African national parks as well as reserves have got many animal species and these have been protected from poachers and hunters in the designated national parks, private game reserves as well as national parks.
Shooting and observing the animal species is also the main goal of the traveler’s first African safari. These animals mainly include the big five which involve the lions, leopards, cape buffalos, elephants as well as the Rhinoceros. For example; yellow fever inoculations and the anti-malaria medications are not needed for those traveling to South Africa. This country has got two main national parks including Kruger and Kgalagadi Trans- frontier national park with over 25 small national reserves plus cultural activities.
According to research findings, in high season, kruger national park is overrun with closed safari vehicles full of tourists and game viewing is made impossible with the many vehicles in the park and yet no off road driving is allowed. This also happens to Kenya’s Masai Mara national park. The private reserves that boarder Kruger National park offer safaris in off road, open safari 4WDs, walking safaris as well as night game drives with an armed ranger.
When a traveler decides to only have wildlife game drives as opposed to cultural activities, there might be need to make some research in other countries since you get variety of these beautiful species. With Tanzania’s Ngorongoro crater and its annual great migration, East Africa has remained one of the best safari destinations.

Africa has got many national parks that are frequented by different travelers on a year basis. These are found in many different countries as well as tourism regions. There is the Serengeti National Park and the Masai Mara National reserve, the size of these combined reserves, their diversity in wildlife, birds and the geographic land marks allow each game drive to be unique and wondrous. The traveler would definitely come again to the Masai Mara and the Serengeti National Park. Some of the other national parks in other countries include; Murchison falls national park in Uganda, Nyungwe national park of Rwanda, Volcanoes national park and Bwindi impenetrable national park both found in Uganda and Rwanda.
 The best wildlife closest to the camp or lodge; the elephants, giraffes, zebras, impalas, the little bee eaters and the birds at the Ashnil Samburu Camp. Here the beautiful birds as well as the wildlife come faithfully, every day to drink from the Ewaso Nyiro River that borders this camp.

The different types of Safaris (Budget/Deluxe/First Class/Luxury)
The main differences between a deluxe and a budget safari is the quality as well as location of the accommodations, the number and the quality of activities engaged in by the travelers, the activities are usually included in the final safari cost. The other elements include the level of personalized services as well as the size of the group engaging in the safari. Where the traveler doesn’t want to cook food and pitch a tent, extra service is offered by some other person and finally the experience is offered. More so, where the traveler prefers hot water showers, flushing toilets, after a long game drive as well as prepared meals, these services are offered by someone else. With budget tours, there are video games or televisions on the safari. The safari guests here have face to face conversations as they discuss the day’s events as well as animal observations. The internet access here is slow, generators are used as a power source and these are turned off from midnight to dawn to conserve fuel.
Below are some of the safari levels which are arranged as group tours as well as private tours by most of the tour companies in Africa.

  • Budget safaris: these are safaris that are less expensive and it’s where camping equipment’s are carried by the travelers, there is also a choice of tent as well as other basic accommodations. Here, a cook can be hired to prepare the meals as well as cleaning. It’s also referred to as a no frills wild game safari.
  • First Class Safaris: These are moderate tours and more comfortable to stay. These also include lodges as well as hotels. They normally favor large safari group tours. These safaris have restaurants, beds and other extra amenities; there are also additional costs for the extra activities.
  • Deluxe safaris: these safaris are upscale and more expensive, they usually involve smaller group tours, and game drives at night, gourmet dining, all inclusive meals and activities, personalized services and many more.
  • Luxury safaris: these safaris mainly include golf courses, private valets and butlers, spa treatments, wine and liqueur including meals and free laundry. These mostly concentrate on personal pampering than observing wildlife in the jungle.

Private safari versus Group safari
The large safari tour operators always plan and sell itineraries 2 years ahead. Tour companies here bring unrelated people together to form a safari group. The tour details are always fixed and cannot be adjusted; hotels and lodge choices; the number of days on safari; national parks visited, tour group meals, daily schedule; sundowner cocktails, bush breakfast, non-safari activities- like the museums; Masai village visits, hot air balloon, vehicular transportation, the mini- buses, 4x4 trucks, pre-selected choice of motor coach bus, min vans, the motorized and the non-motorized boats, the daily driving hours with different people in confined spaces under one guide and many drivers. The most important decision made by the traveler, is selecting the safari dates.
A private tour is known to be a custom itinerary that is tailored to the interests as well as choices of the participant(s). Here both the 4WD vehicle as well as the tour guide are fully used by the traveler for personal and exclusive use. They can be arranged for 2 or 1 traveler and the tour operator charges a minimal fee for arranging this type of safari.
A group safari is always less expensive than a private tour because of the wholesale hotel group discounts and regular scheduled reservations. A private tour can cost more than a group safari. The process is always to select a tour operator, select an itinerary of a well-known group company, email the identical itinerary with the number of days, accommodations, extra activities, national parks as well as airports to start and end the safari. This email should be sent to several safari companies as you request for the total cost/Quote; Go on and review the cost estimates ranging from 35% more and 40% less for the itinerary. Many of the tour operators change a group itinerary into a private safari by adding small additional fees. The cost difference is always in the type of accommodation , selecting the different national parks that do not charge high daily entrance fees, spending little time as well as money on the extracurricular activities like the hot air balloon ride.
Reasons for choosing a private safari over a group tour.

  • The flexibility of the safari itinerary, this is because there are no daily regimented group schedules
  • There is always interest in visiting more and different national parks as well as reserves
  • You get to spend more or less safari time in one place over another
  • You don’t have to share a small safari vehicle with strangers
  • Don’t have to spend many hours driving from one park to another park.
  • The warnings of high security risks involved in overland travel in Kenya, here a flying safari is arranged.

A private safari is usually an unforgettable adventure and here the guide tracks and spots several wildlife animals; stops and parks and the animal observations are short and long as desired, will also stop and maneuver the vehicle so as to find the best photo shot and also have options of deciding the time when the game drive begins and ends. Here one is not on someone’s rigid time schedule. While carrying out the game drives, the traveler will notice crowded vehicles were every seat is taken and the passengers will also have the best photography as they stand up in the pop up roof. With private tours, the traveler enjoys lots of freedom as they travel.

Modes of Safari Transportation
The most used mode of transport on any safari is the 4WD vehicle. The other safaris also utilize the single engine planes, minivans, motor coach buses, motorized as well as the non-motorized boats, these include; canoes and kayaks, camels, horses, elephants and foot with the armed security guards. Some travelers can also do a self-drive tour without the expenses of a tour guide or driver, however, moving with a professional guide is invaluable, especially if the traveler is not familiar with the destinations being visited. There are also escorted mountain gorilla trekking safaris and are popular in Rwanda and Uganda, the day time game drives are a norm in the country and the night bush drives help with viewing nocturnal animals, in the private game reserves.
Note: On a flying tour, travelers are transported directly from national park to park. The tour company can’t also control the qualifications and the skills of the guide assigned by the lodge or camp. Many guides in Tanzania are highly skilled and trained game spotters of the chosen company. These guides teach the travelers so much about game animals as well as their natural habitats. It’s well known that an excellent guide enhances the safari expedition. The personal experience with four guides is half –half and all the guides in the different national parks are dedicated and knowledgeable game spotters.
Cons and Pros of a flying safari
Pros
There are no extended overland drives on the dusty, potholed as well as unpaved roads between the parks; there is also reduced side to side movements in the safari vehicle, there are also less of a bone jarring ride; and saving the hours of the safari time.
Cons
The flights are less flexibility on the game drives, using the camp employee and the 4WD doesn’t allow a one to one all day use of the guide as well as the vehicle; one may also share the vehicle with the strangers.
 

 Tour Vehicles
The safari vehicles commonly used by the travelers is the 4WD Toyota Land Cruiser with a pop up roof and the two gas tanks. This pop up roof also provides a shade for the passengers who stand to take photos or videos. The safari land cruiser is well equipped with two very powerful binoculars used for observing wildlife, it also has a pictorial reference book on African mammals, and a reference guide on the birds of an African continent. These books are also useful in identifying the game animals as well as the colorful birds.
There are however many 4WD vehicles without a pop up metal roofs. With this type of vehicle, the roof is canvas fabric. Its roof flaps are tied down while in the open position, these flaps are untied and rolled behind and forward by the driver. The photographers can also enjoy the roof of the folding canvas roof. However, there is no protection from the sun shine which may cause headaches on the long game drives.
Some global tour companies use 4WD vehicles which have 3 rows of stadium seats with no windows and doors and these would be great for taking the photos of wildlife. This is because the animals walk so close to the vehicle and the travelers can literally reach out and touch them. It’s also advisable to carry short small digital cameras since they take great wildlife photos than the 3 foot long camera lenses. The travelers are always grateful about the doors as well as windows.
Within Amboseli National Park, the guide drives a 4WD minivan which is a 9 seater with a pop up metal roof. The minivan is also not as comfortable as the land cruiser. The seats here are narrow and very uncomfortable. The driver guide also sits far away from the passengers and it makes it difficult to communicate with the passengers as well as each other. There is also much dust which reaches the vehicle and there are no binoculars for viewing game or a reference guide book.
With the Asnil Samburu Camp- Toyota land cruiser doesn’t have reference books as well as the guide and doesn’t share binoculars.
The Mara intrepids- Land cruiser Defender’s canvas roof rolls forward and the widows roll up. In case it rains, the driver /Guide will have to stop the car and unroll the roof as well as the windows which is also an inconvenience.  The guide also shares very powerful binoculars and is also a fountain of wild game information.
It’s also advisable that all the safari vehicles as well as the occupants should be out of the park by 6:00pm, if not heavy fines have to be paid by the tour operators or the guides. If the clients stay outside the national parks, the vehicle as well as the occupants should exit the park early in order to avoid the much fines. In order to avoid the unnecessary driving, it’s highly recommended that clients stay inside the park accommodation facilities.

Passports and Visas
The US passports should be valid for 6 months past the return date of traveling from Uganda. The United States citizens need 6 blank pages in the passport. The US citizens are also required to apply and pay for visas for traveling to Namibia, Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania and Zambia. The 2016 visa fees for Kenya, and Uganda is $50 per person and Tanzania is $100 per person.
Visas for Kenya are obtained at the border crossing which is a quick and painless process. The procedures include; entering the government office, authorities taking a photo, paying for the Visa which is $50 cash and then the Kenya Visa is issued and the safari will continues,
For the Tanzanian Visa, visa application fee, and the current passport are emailed t the embassy of Tanzania, Washington DC. With this visa application, send a well pre-addressed stamped envelope that is used to return the passport and the approved visa. Another option of obtaining a Tanzania visa is when deplaning in Kilimanjaro since both are $100 per person. The issue of standing on a visa processing queen after flying along journey from the USA, late night, with many people, made this decision of mailing away for the Tanzania Visa easy.
 Important Health Information
Malaria is a common disease in most of African countries, except South Africa and Lesotho. Some of the anti- malaria medication is not so effective in some of the African nations. The prescribed anti- malaria medication is always taken 2 weeks before leaving your home country, while on any safari in Africa and will also continue two weeks after returning home. Mainly prescribed tablets include; Mefloquine Hydrochloride, here only one anti- malaria pill is taken weekly for 6 conservative weeks. Travelers are advised to consult an overseas travel medicine physician or the centers for Disease control as well as prevention in Atlanta for the current health recommendations of traveling in Africa.
Yellow fever inoculation is also required and in case one enters Tanzania and Kenya from a yellow fever prone country. More so, if you arrive in East Africa from the United States or Western Europe, yellow fever inoculation is not required. Hepatitis A and B inoculations, shots for tetanus, children vaccines as well as polio are recommended.
 The travelers are also advised to use a strong deet infused insect repellent; wear long pants, long sleeved shirts, closed toe shoes as well as using a treated mosquito net to avoid insect bites. The high altitudes of Ngorongoro crater (7,500 feet/2,300 meters) also causes temperatures to be too cold for the mosquitoes. Visitors are advised to avoid dehydration by taking lots of water. The dust is known to dry out the eyes, mouth and throat. Some tour operators put bottled water in the safari vehicle as well as the lodging accommodations.

This travel insurance is per person and its cost is based on the total cost of the tour and the airfare. The pre- existing medical conditions should be noted and covered within the insurance plan. Travelers should check whether the current health care plan covers the medical reimbursements for the overseas medical care. Travel insurance from a good and reputable provider makes sense and should definitely be purchased. There are many thousands that are spent on a safari and incase a medical emergency arises, it’s advisable for one to get the best medical care available. Travel insurance is cheap and costs few dollars yet provides peace of mind thousand miles from home.

Travelers are advisable to change US dollars into Tanzania shillings and Kenya shillings at any local Bureau de change office, not the bank. The exchange rate here is competitive with that of the world market rates and no currency exchange fee is charged.

More so, do not exchange more dollars into local currency than needed. This is because it’s almost impossible to exchange unused shillings back into US dollars. The major credit cards are accepted in many of the businesses and mostly a credit card usage fee is assessed, equal 3-5% of the known purchased price.

The costs as well as the types of safari accommodations vary in amenities like golf courses, massages and swimming pools, gourmet cuisine Vs Cafeteria food, sleeping bag Vs beds. Some travelers prefer staying in luxury resort lodges, luxury tented camp or pitching their own tents in the campsites, there is also a permanent camp location Vs a mobile tented camp and this can also be a combination. These choices are many and endless. Many reviews about different accommodation facilities can be found on trip advisor: some of the hotels include; East African all suites, Oltukai Lodge, Ngorongoro Serena Safari lodge, Mara intrepids club, as well as Mbuzi Mawe tented camp and many more.

Anyone who is employed a professional guide in a national park is supposed to know the terrain as well as the wildlife that inhabit the park. This is because each of the wildlife species have specific habits like the giraffes as well as the elephants that prefer eating the leaves of the tall bushes and trees; the lions prides to be territorial beasts. More so a good safari guide knows which prides distinct zones which are found in the park.
Within Tanzania, the traveler is spoiled by the safari guide, this is because the guide is a fountain of wild game information and will instruct clients on how to spot the game. This game spotter also introduces and educates the clients to the mammals and the birds of Africa as he guides them to the attractions. Tour guides should always have high standards and should be knowledgeable to provide important information to the clients while in the field.

A good guide should be an outstanding game spotter, high knowledgeable, easily shares information about the game animals as well as the birds, should also know the breadth and depth of the different destinations, as well as proper understanding of all the travelers who come from different origins.
A game spotter has got many different skills and one of them is bringing new and exciting animal interactions during each of the game drives. It’s always advisable for all the tour vehicles to exit the national parks as well as reserves and return to the accommodation facilities by 6:00pm and if it’s not done this way, the driver will be heavily fined.
The important qualities of a good game spotter.

  • The willingness to always share the knowledge as well as information about game mammals, the feathered flying creatures and the relationship of these with the natural environment.
  • A good game spotter should have the ability to fully and immediately identify and explain the differences between the Grant’s gazelle and the Thompson gazelle or the famous plains with the gravy’s Zebras.
  • Should be in position to distinguish the characteristics of both the male and the female species.
  • A good game spotter should know the different habits of the game animals , and their regular hiding places
  • A game spotter should be willing to locate the wildlife animals that the guests want to observe.
  • Should be in place to explain the mating rituals of all animal species
  • Should also be in position to describe the social structure of all the game animals i.e. how long is the gestation period and how the young ones are cared for? Are these group or solitary animals? Is the animal group headed by a patriarch or a matriarch? Are these animals monogamous for life or one mating season?

The different Excursions that can be added to a Wildlife Safari
Below are some of the common excursions that can be added on any safari to Africa;

    • Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, this usually takes 6 to 9 days and this depends on the type of route selected to the summit.
    • Gorilla trekking in Rwanda and Uganda as well as Democratic Republic of Congo
    • Surf beach and sand resorts: these destination beaches are found in both Zanzibar of Tanzania as well as Mombasa of Kenya, there are direct flights that are available from all the  national parks
    • The Victoria falls: here you find white water rafting, jet boat, helicopter as well as the elephant safaris
    • Visiting the samburu village and the Masai villages.

Experience is always different and adventure is always felt from a different perspective. Below are some of the things the traveler like about the tour.

  • The wildlife and their baby animals. These are always good to observe in their daily routines
  • Avoiding long bumpy, dusty, overland journeys by flying from one national park to another.
  • Learning more about each game animal and their instinctive habits as well as characteristics
  • The unplugging process from the electronic universe.
  • Observing and witnessing mothers tending to their young ones as well as listening to the song birds, preserving in memory, announcing the dawn and the African sunset turning the sky into the golden flames.

What the Traveler would do differently:

  • Can add an extra day before the start of the tour. This is because the international flights from United States are 17 hours long with connecting flights. More so, flight delays can happen and can disorganize the whole itinerary. Always clients are advised to schedule an extra day or two.
  • Spend more time exploring the country visited by visiting all its national parks and other attractions.
  • An example would be to visit the David Sheldrick wildlife trust in Nairobi to view the orphan elephants will give you a bonus on your safari.

Important information to Note (Miscellaneous)

  • When visiting Uganda, Kenya, and Rwanda, learn some words in Swahili like Hello meaning Jambo , Asante meaning thank you and how are you meaning Habari.
  • The smiles are most understood and transcend language barriers.
  • Always learn which animals are grazers i.e. which eat grass only like the wildebeests, zebras, hippos and the warthogs
  • Always learn which animals are browsers like those that leaves, grasses, bushes, trees; like the giraffes, elephants, elands and the antelopes.
  • Be in position to listen and follow the instructions of the guide or ranger.
  • The wild animals are unpredictable and should not be provoked. Always stay in the safari vehicle.
