Once you’re ready to book an African safari and do some wildlife viewing, you’ll want to take all of the information you’ve learned in this guide and start planning. Whether it’s your first trip or you’re a veteran safari goer, here’s a little checklist to make sure you’ve ticked all the boxes.
Location: East Africa, South Africa, or Elsewhere
Have you chosen a safari destination (Cape Town, South Africa; Botswana’s Okavango Delta; or Moremi Game Reserve, for example)?
Length and number of countries
How long will your African safari trip be? Will you tour one country or multiple countries?
What type of safaris are you interested in? Walking safaris, game drives in safari vehicles, a self-drive tour, an off-road journey, heading into the African bush, or a family safari?
National parks or private reserves
Are you looking to visit several national parks or a private game reserve?
Will you stay in down-to-earth safari lodges or a more luxurious option such as the Four Seasons Safari Lodge Serengeti?
Are you looking to experience your African safari during the high season (the dry season) or prefer beating the crowds in the low season?
Are you looking to contribute to the local communities through purchases, activities, or opting for private game reserves?
Compare Reviews Online
Whether you’re going for local guides or safari companies, it’s important to do your research and make sure they have a good reputation and deliver on their promises. Comparing reviews online is a good place to start – perhaps on TripAdvisor, Yelp, or by looking on the operator’s official website. It’s worth noting what people who have experienced safari tours with the company thought about their adventure.
The travel planner should make a safari totally worth it, with opportunities to see beautiful landscapes, have close encounters with the local wildlife, and overall, experience Africa at its finest.
Contact a Tour Operator
If you’ve been particularly impressed by a specific tour operator and have decided you want to experience a safari with them, it’s time to go ahead and book your tour!
Be sure to ask plenty of questions about the tour offered, or if you’re planning your own itineraries, make sure they know exactly what you’re looking for. You’ll want to ask for a quote (and what’s included within it), as well as about the accommodation, flights (if applicable), practices, and more.
