A Typical Day On Safari

Although every day is different - which is one of the main attractions of taking an African safari - we thought that it might be useful to try to summarise what might typically be expected. Click here to read more.

However if you do want to read about the varied experiences that we have ourselves experienced then you cannot do better than to visit our iconic website.


Choosing A Safari

Whether you are a 'first-timer' on safari, or an 'old Africa hand', some guidance as to where and when to go may be useful to you.

This section contains information on the different types of accommodation available, the various types of activity that you can choose to experience, and of course the important element of cost factor.

In practice, though, you might be better off being directed to our freely downloadable 'How NOT To Choose An African Safari' PDF.

The Weather In Africa

When to go on safari is almost as important as where to go - and it is of course the weather that is the determining factor here.

The whole spectrum of African weather conditions is covered here, with special emphasis on the balance between the rainy and dry seasons which is of so much importance in planning your trip, and which varies markedly from country to country.
