3 Reasons To Choose A Luxury African Safari

For most people, African holidays are a once in a life time type of vacation. It’s not every day that you get to wake up in the morning to a giraffe looking through your washroom window, or hang out with the hippos by a watering hole. While there are a number of different ways to enjoy African holidays, a favourite of almost all travelers is a luxury safari. Wonder why? Let’s start with the most compelling reason:

Choose Your Own Adventure
When you choose to go on a luxury African safari, you’re given some flexibility in terms of where you can go and what you can see. After you rise in the morning and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea, you can grab your hat, your sunglasses and your sunscreen and venture off on one of your very own self-guided walking tours. You also have the option to go on any number of different luxury safari tours that’ll be departing from the lodge. Many of them are tailored and themed so you’ll be shown the landscapes and animals that you came to see.

Fewer Crowds
No one goes on a vacation to people watch, especially when it comes to African safaris. When you opt to go on an African luxury safari, there’ll be more room and less people in the bus or the jeep that you’ll be using to get out into the bush. Your group will be limited to usually ten people or so, rather than 20 or 30, meaning you’ll get better views and there’ll be less of a chance of scaring off the animals. Which brings us to our final point…

A Better Chance To Interact With Wildlife
If what you’ve always dreamed of is being able to engage with the lions, leopards, rhinos and elephants of the safari, then a luxury safari is definitely the way to go. Several of these tours even allow for tourists to sleep amongst the animals, giving you the full African safari experience.
