What do you most want to see?

Not all parks across Africa are home to the same animals and birds. So if you really want to see certain animals or tick off new birds on your list, chose your destination carefully! Read on for more information about how to make sure that you head off in the right direction. You are travelling a long way, make the most of it.

Above all else, don’t go looking to just tick the Big Five off a list. Go with no expectations and a willingness to embrace the sheer nature above spotting a specific animal. We know that’s hard, especially for a first time visitor, but trust us, you will enjoy your safari so much more!
