- WHAT IS A SAFARI? The word safari is Swahili for “journey”, so in a sense any excursion is a safari. Swahili is the lingua franca of East Africa, so local people talk of “going on a safari” to Mombasa or Nairobi, etc. However, for us Westerners, the word safari has long been used in association with an expedition to see (or shoot) the wild animals of Africa. Our safaris are exclusively for photography and sightseeing (no shooting, except with a camera!). They vary considerably in cost, style, length and accommodation. Most of an Africa program is made up of wildlife safaris.
- A TYPICAL DAY on A WILDLIFE SAFARI The safari day normally starts early to make the most of the best game viewing hours – the animals are active and the light is not too harsh for photography. After a cup of tea/coffee and biscuits, or a light breakfast, we set out into the bush in search of game. As the day warms up the animals begin to rest in the shade and we return to our lodge or camp for a well-earned hearty breakfast. Some lodges serve a lavish brunch instead of breakfast and lunch. During the heat of the day, there is time for a siesta or a dip in the pool (if there is one). Afternoon tea is around 3.30pm followed by another game activity, returning to your lodge or camp at or after sunset. Depending on whether the area is a national park or not, night drives with a spotlight may be available.
