Taking a safari holiday for the first time is an exciting adventure but it can also be a bit of a stressful time as you try to come up with the best places to visit, what you want to see and what you will need to pack. It is a sensible idea to do a spot of research before you book your adventure on the best places to visit so here are a few ideas to get you started.
If you are a keen photographer, you will probably want to visit the Masai Mara in Kenya where you will be able to see the spectacular wildlife and be in awe of the incredible landscapes whereas should you be interested in the cultural aspect of the area you will be able to visit ancient rock paintings and experience tribal life with all its customs and traditions.
Getting to see the Big 5 in their natural habitat is the highlight of any safari adventure and the well-trained guides will be able to help you see as much of the wildlife as possible whilst also keeping you and your party safe.
Packing for your safari may make you feel unsure on what you will need but the key word is comfort. Long sleeved cotton tops and either shorts or linen trousers will be the most comfortable daywear and good quality walking shoes are essential.
