A quick introduction to African safari holidays

African safari holidays have long been popular with British holidaymakers, for a number of key reasons. These include the natural beauty to which one is frequently exposed whilst on such a holiday, as well as the plentiful wildlife of which you can come within close vicinity. Whilst some people who choose to book a safari holiday are lured by the sense of wild adventure with which they are associated, many others like to place the emphasis on an appreciation of the natural beauty and wildlife of Africa from a safer distance!

Certainly, one attraction of African safari holidays is the wide range of countries that host them, including Tanzania, Zambia, Kenya, Botswana and Rwanda… and of course, it is from within such nations that you can discover all manner of delightful locations. These include, within Kenya alone, the likes of the Maasai Mara Game Reserve on the northern top of the Serengeti National Park, as well as the open plains of Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Laikipia and the protected Rhino and Chimpanzee sanctuaries.

Naturally, the animals themselves are the other major attraction of any African wildlife safari, and include the Big Five – namely, the African elephant, lion, leopard, rhinoceros and cape buffalo. There are, however, also many other animals that you have a chance of spotting on such a holiday, such as many other big cats and such rare species as Gravy’s Zebra, the Beisa Oryx and the long necked Gerenuk. Don’t forget, either, the Great Migration that takes place from July to October each year!

When the time comes for you to book an African wildlife safari, however, you are likely to appreciate a company that offers fascinating itineraries, well-priced and comfortable accommodation and a high standard of service. You are also likely to appreciate such a break that is built around your needs, whether you are a lone traveller or a honeymooning couple.
