Planning a trip to southern Africa can be rather overwhelming, and even frustrating. The region is so rich in highlights, with such an array of options for destinations and accommodation, that it is very difficult to know where to start. One of the major aims of this website is to assist travelers through the process, starting at the broadest level and working down to specific details.
The first step is to develop a sense for which features are of most interest, and how you might like to balance your time and budget between "safari" (wildlife) and "non-safari" (scenic and cultural) aspects of the southern African experience - our Exploring Southern Africa section is designed to provide an overview of southern Africa's major attractions, and aid in drawing up and prioritizing a "wish list" for your southern African experience. You can delve into increasing levels of detail about the region's major travel destinations by following the links from the Highlights page.
Another fundamental question relates to the timing of a trip, and our Best time to travel page shares some thoughts and insights on this subject.
Since decisions relating to safari are some of the most important in designing a southern African itinerary, we have dedicated a whole section of the website (Safari Options) to covering safari considerations such as when, where, custom versus scheduled, how long, etc.
For more specific details on the logistics and costs of travel to southern Africa, three pages will be of interest. The Scheduled Safaris page covers our select portfolio of pre-arranged safari packages, while the Safari Cost Comparison and Sample Itineraries provide cost analysis and example itineraries for custom travel planning.
While a logical progression through these various pages will provide ideas for your safari and help to focus your thoughts, nothing beats a person-to-person conversation with a seasoned expert who can answer questions, and offer informed and objective advice. There are numerous factors to weigh up when planning a trip to southern Africa, but years of experience have taught us that just 15-20 minutes on the phone is a great way for us to frame the options and give you a better understanding of the considerations; simultaneously we can get more insight into your interests, constraints, and priorities so that we can send you further information accordingly.
