From the signature savannahs of East Africa teeming with plains game, marvellous landmarks of ancient civilisations, tropical white sand beaches along the warm Indian Ocean, endless deserts with sand dunes burning red at sunrise, lush rainforests echoing with the calls of birds and primates, vibrant cities alive with a colourful melting pot of cultures – there is nowhere else on the planet with such incredible natural beauty and rich cultural traditions as Africa. Whether you join a scheduled tour or discover your own Africa on a tailor-made trip, a visit to this magical continent is guaranteed to take your breath away.
So many of the world’s great beasts call Africa home so a trip to Africa is not complete without a photographic wildlife safari. Embark on a spectacular African Safari to search for the well-known “Big 5” — the lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and buffalo — which were originally grouped together for being the most difficult to hunt but are now simply thrilling to watch in their natural habitat. However, there are hundreds of other animal and bird species to encounter in Africa, each playing an important role in its local ecosystem.
Don’t forget to tick off the “Ugly 5” – the warthog, hyena, vulture, wildebeest and Marabou Stork. Or the “Little 5” who are named in contradiction to their Big counterparts and encourage safari goers to look at the smaller species present in the African wilderness – the ant lion, leopard tortoise, elephant shrew, rhino beetle, and buffalo weaver. And if you’re very lucky you may see an elusive member of the “Shy 5” – the porcupine, bat-eared fox, aardvark, meerkat, and aardwolf. Witnessing exotic wildlife up close and personal in their natural habitat on a true African Safari is the experience of a lifetime!
