So, you have decided to experience the magic of safari in southern Africa, what next? The array of choices facing the visitor to southern Africa can be quite bewildering. With so many highlights across the region, and so many safaris and properties to choose from, it's difficult to know where to start. A significant proportion of our clients are experienced global travelers who are accustomed to making all their own travel arrangements; when it comes to southern Africa though, they appreciate the value of expert guidance and assistance.
Through years of experience helping literally thousands of clients design and arrange southern African safaris we have developed a framework of analysis to help walk our clients through the decision making process. The four fundamental questions are:
Another very common question is "How much will it cost"? For "scheduled safaris", the answer to this question is simple because the safari has a fixed itinerary and a set price. For custom safaris the cost is a factor of "when", "where", and "how long" and, where appropriate, budgetary considerations will be discussed under each of the main questions. Two other pages on this site that are helpful in getting a sense for the cost of a custom safari are our Safari Cost Comparison and Sample Itineraries.
To help place the many variables in context, we have designed a Safari Decision Tree that begins with the notion that everyone is looking for their own particular safari experience, and works down through a series of comparisons to help you narrow your focus.
Designing a safari is an art, not a science, and there is no mathematical formula that will lead you to the right decisions. This section of our website is not intended to replace the invaluable personal and interactive conversations that we have with our clients, it is simply a supplement to help arrange your thoughts and get you pointed in the right direction. We look forward to actually speaking in person to answer questions and help you design your dream safari!Let us help you plan your dream safari. call toll-free: 888.227.8311 or today
