5 Reasons why you should go on a Safari in Africa!
#1 Bonding with Friends & Family
You will never forget those magical moments of flying above the earth in a hot air balloon, or the time your heart almost stopped, wondering whether the elephant is going to charge. Sitting by a roaring fire, sipping drinks and swopping wildlife stories….running away from sugar obsessed monkeys, and the early morning game drive, eyes watering from the cold wind but trying to be the first one to spot that elusive animal…yes, you will always remember these moments and the people who were with you at the time, be they partners, friends, children, parents or siblings. This will be one of the best times to bond or to strengthen existing bonds. You will also meet people from all over the world, and create new lasting friendships.
#2 Learning to appreciate Nature
There is no better way to appreciate this wonderful planet than to go on a safari. Watch animals interact with their own and other species and enjoy the vast horizons and open skies. Learn fascinating facts about wild animals and their peculiarities, and meet tribes people who have lived off the land for centuries and whose way of life is now in danger of extinction. Immerse yourself in the wilderness of Africa, gaze in awe at the rare and powerful animals and fall asleep to the sounds of nature.
#3 Help in conservation efforts
Tourism is essential to conservation as it creates the much needed income to fund conservation efforts. Local communities today are learning to work with tourism partners to improve their quality of life, preserve their culture and co-exist in harmony with wildlife. The presence of tourists also serve as a deterrent to poachers, who are decimating wildlife at an alarming rate today, and need to be stopped before some wildlife species are declared extinct.
#4 Connect with your wilder side
Arouse your senses by getting close to wild animals on a walking safari/horseback safari, or experience the thrill of the hunt watching lionesses stalk their prey. Go for a night game drive where you may encounter any of the Big Five like elephant or lion, or take a hot air balloon safari to try and spot game from the air. Enjoy breath taking activities like sky diving, mountain biking, white water rafting and climbing the highest mountain in Africa, Mt Kilimanjaro, can also be a great plus on your safari.
#5 Learn to appreciate a different way of life
Life on the African savanna is rooted in the land, where the people rely on Nature for their sustenance and livelihood. Feel the rhythm of a different pace of life, where the natives are unaffected by fashion trends or consumables, and survival is uppermost in their thoughts. Connect with nature and allow your mind to expand to a new consciousness.
