Are you planning on going on a safari to Africa? Well, firstly, let me congratulate you! Going on an African safari is an event that must be celebrated. It’s a decision that requires the opening of a champagne bottle, because, let me assure you, your life is never going to be the same again.
If you go on a good safari, you will experience wilderness and landscapes that are beyond your wildest dreams. The sounds, the sights, the smells of Africa will all come alive. The Serengeti and the Masai Mara will stretch before your eyes. The labryninthe of the Okavango Delta will course through your heart. The mighty Victoria Falls will thunder over your body.
You will not be the same again, because you will see a world that has not been touched (spoilt) by mankind. You will see the world flowing in its natural rhythms without any source of artifice — lights, roads, electricity.
You will see the world raw and wild.
Planning an African safari is not easy. I strongly recommend using an African safari planning company (like Chalo Africa – www.chaloafrica.com) to plan your trip.
(Note: I have a personal interest in Chalo Africa; While you’re free to use other companies, I still recommend Chalo Africa 🙂 )
Whether you plan to go to Kenya or Tanzania, Zambia or Zimbabwe, South Africa or Namibia, Zanzibar or Madagascar, you have to take into account several things:
1. The weather – It may be raining, it may be dry season, it may be monsoon season. The weather affects the landscape (high grasses, low grasses, water logging) and where the animals will be (migration patterns).
2. The season – Safaris are expensive and if its peak season, your costs are going to go up. Let the safari consultants tell you when is the best time to go.
3. Internal transport – Think you can drive yourself from Arusha to the Serengeti? Wrong! This is wild country, my friend. You need experienced guides to show you the path. They will tell you about this new, fascinating world that they call home — and they will leave your side as friends.
4. Special offers – Yes, you can scour the web and find special deals that are awesome, but are they really awesome? You’ll never know. Safari planners like Chalo Africa know what’s happening on the ground, so they’ll be able to offer you the best advice.
In conclusion, if you are planning an African safari from India, or an African safari from USA, or even an African safari from Dubai (UAE), get in touch with Chalo Africa. With offices in India, USA & UAE, Chalo Africa will be able to guide you like no one else.
