How Can I Plan a Safari?

Part of the & African Safari Collection

Planning a safari is an exciting process that involves several key steps to ensure a memorable and seamless experience.

  • Define Safari Goals: Identify wildlife interests, desired safari experiences, and whether cultural interactions are important.
  • Choose an African Destination: Based on your interest, select from East Africa (Kenya, Tanzania), Southern Africa (Botswana, South Africa), or Central Africa (Rwanda, Uganda).
  • Best Time to Go: Consider dry season for wildlife viewing, but note it may be busier and more expensive.
  • Set a Budget: Include costs for flights, safari packages, visas, vaccinations, and insurance.
  • Choose a Tour Operator vs. Independent: Using a reputable tour operator like Discover Africa ensures a tailored, seamless experience. We can advise on logistical prep, such as visa and vaccination requirements.
  • Travel Insurance: Ensure coverage for medical emergencies, cancellations, and lost luggage.
  • Pack appropriately: Consider your clothing for the season and activities you will do, as well as your added extras like your camera and binoculars.
