Factors to consider when choosing how to see a destination include the size and composition of your travelling party, your preferred accommodation style, which animals you want to see, how adventurous you plan to be and how much you want to spend. Of course you will also need to take into account the time of year you will be travelling; wild animals often move according to the seasons, with the annual migration of wildebeest in Kenya and Tanzania being a famous example. Also the green summer season in southern Africa is wonderful for birds but makes spotting other game more difficult. During the dry season the bush dries out and animals are more visible at waterholes and rivers.
This is where our knowledge of Africa comes in; we can recommend specific properties to suit your requirements as well as advise you on when and where to go.
Safaris can be exclusively fly-in, can involve driving from lodge to lodge or be a combination of both. How your travel depends on the destination, your time constraints and budget.
