Which country in Africa is the safest to go on a safari?

Part of the & African Safari Collection

Safety is one of the most important aspects of a safari trip. Our trusted safari partners consider everything from health safety and crime to ensuring an incident-free game drive when tailoring their hospitality offering.

While some destinations are rated safer than others for various reasons, it is always important to keep your wits about you wherever you may be traveling.

Keep the following safety tips in mind when traveling on safari:

  • Follow Guide Instructions: Always listen to your safari guide. Their expertise is crucial for your safety and ensures respectful wildlife encounters.
  • Maintain a Safe Distance: Keep a safe distance from wildlife to avoid provoking them. Never approach animals too closely, especially on foot.
  • Stay Inside the Vehicle: Unless advised by your guide, remain inside the safari vehicle during game drives to minimize risks from wildlife.
  • Avoid Flash Photography: Refrain from using flash photography, as it can startle or provoke animals, potentially leading to dangerous situations.
  • Be Prepared: Bring necessary items like sunscreen, hats, and enough water, and ensure you have a basic understanding of first aid and emergency procedures.

Keep the basic street smarts in mind when exploring the urban and city areas in the African countries you visit en route to your safari:

  • Plan your route: Make an effort to know the area you’re visiting and which hotspot crime areas to avoid.
  • Keep things modest: Don’t flash your valuables or cash openly. Invest in a money belt to keep your passport and money safe.
  • Travel Expert Guidance: Exploring on your own can be spontaneous and exciting in the right setting. If you feel
