WHAT ANIMALS MIGHT YOU SEE ON AN AFRICAN SAFARI?

A Safari was once considered a trip only for the most intrepid travellers. Now it is completely accessible for anyone who takes an interest in Africa’s incredible wildlife. We are able to offer a more varied safari experience than ever before where in addition to the traditional 4×4 game viewer, you can enjoy a safari experience by boat, on foot, in a traditional dug-out canoe and even in a hot air balloon.

For the first time safari goer and when travelling with children the so called Big 5 (Lion, leopard, rhino, buffalo, elephant) can be seen as star prize. Although this is special if you spot them, spare a thought for the many other species of plains game and smaller animals as well as colourful birdlife that can be equally as rare and magical.

We do understand the appeal of the big cats and prehistoric looking rhino as well the impressive elephant though, so If you’re interested in seeing a particular animal – such as the regal lion or the magnificent, elusive leopard – read on to see where they can be seen, and when. Whilst there are never any guarantees, these are the places you have the best chance of getting a glimpse of these majestic animals.
