A treasured memory of mine is, when driving into the Kruger Park for the very first time, the excitement mixed with a sense of serenity I felt as the dry wind blew through my hair from the cranked-down window. The impression that time had just been rewound for hundreds of years, the excitement of what animal I could see beyond the next rise was a feeling that could not be matched by any other experience I’ve ever had.

  • Be careful – the animals are wild.  Africa is not a theme park – the animals are not restrained or trained on how to interact with people. Don’t get out of your vehicle in a Big 5 game park for ANY reason.
  • Make your guide a close friend, and follow what he or she tells you.
  • Not all safaris are planned the same – different safari companies usually plan different events. It is therefore good to consult with the guides and staff of that given resort.
