Expectations on African Safaris

By Sherwin Trott Subscribe to RSS | January 13th 2012 | Views:

It is not surprising to be getting all excited about going for a holiday; all the more when it is to one of the great African safaris. There are many options to choose from as Africa is a vast continent with many interesting and exciting African safaris to find adventure and thrills. But there can be varying expectations from different individuals on African safaris.

Types of participants

Although many African safaris have no problem with children joining any game drives to view the various types of wildlife available, it is best to have children of a certain age who would enjoy the whole adventure. Children under 7 years old may prove a handful as these young participants have a lot of needs like more rests and different types of food and play. Watching some wildlife may be quite frightening for young children below 7 years. Hence, many African safaris do not encourage children younger than 7 years to join the African safaris tour packages as many are not able to cater to the special needs of young children.

All able adults are welcome to any of the African safaris organized tours as these are more versatile in movement. It may be difficult for the senior citizens and the physically challenged to participate in an African safaris tour as there may be some walking and climbing. Special needs must be specified prior to the booking of African safaris tours to confirm if special needs can be catered for.

Game Sightings

One of the obvious expectations in all African safaris trip would be to view all sorts of wildlife as much as possible. Hence, the traveler would want to sign up on African safaris packages that will offer the most number of game sighting opportunities as sighting of certain animals is not guaranteed due to the free roaming lifestyle of the wildlife in African safaris.

One example is the famous Great Migration where a large movement of wildebeests happens during the summer. Hence, if visitors go to African safaris outside of summer, they will miss the Great Migration event. The movement of thousands of wildebeests from Serengeti to Masai Mara is a sight to behold; this type of wildlife roams to another safari spot for food.

There may be other types of animals who perform this similar migration; the zebra is also known to migrate to other African safaris in search of food although in smaller numbers than the wildebeests. The hippos and the crocodiles which reside in Mara River always form the Great migration witnesses which might hinder some wildebeests’ attempt to migrate.
