Private safari tours recommendations today

Best safari holidays by DumaSafaris? Africa is a awesome destination if you are looking for raw wildlife feeling. If desert – and its accompanying gobsmacking scenery – is your thing, a trip through Namibia and Botswana is perfect. Enjoy the incredible vastness of Namibia, the dunes of Sossusvlei, wild coast of Swakopmund, the incredible, game-rich Etosha and a visit to a local bushman community. From there, you head into the lush Caprivi Strip, going on a game drive through the parks between Botswana and Angola that form an important part of the migratory corridor for elephants and other wildlife. Then it’s off to the breath-taking Okavango Delta, followed by the barren beauty of Makgadikgadi. Spend two days exploring Chobe, which boasts one of the largest elephant populations in Africa, followed by two days in Hwange (Zim). You’ll see elephant and more magnificent elephant! And that’s beside all the other African wildlife favourites who call these parks ‘home’.

How to communicate with the locals: If you worry that you will not get along with the locals, you must know that they are all former European colonies. In Tanzania and Kenya, English is the official language. In Madagascar, French is the official language, and in Cape Verde, Portuguese. This does not mean that you cannot understand English with the latter. In the tourist areas you will find speakers of Italian, French and German. Health Risks: There are many legends and myths about this topic. You have to keep in mind that all travelers should have the usual vaccines (as a child), as well as a vaccine against hepatitis A and typhoid. There is a risk of malaria in some areas and prophylactic medication (eg Malarone) is recommended. In Kenya there is also a risk of yellow fever, so you must have a yellow card to prove that you are vaccinated against this malaria. Find even more details on wildebeest migration safaris.

Kenya safari tip : Kenya is the country where you must come to discover the richest African wildlife. When you get to Masai Mara National Park, you just have to turn your head and immediately you will encounter an antelope, a giraffe, a zebra. But Kenya has many more national parks that are not the same – each with its own specificity. The coasts of the Indian Ocean have that fine white sand and big, green phosphorescence that every European dreams about, especially when in the old continent it is cold and sad. Along the coast (as in Tanzania), an extremely rich civilization developed from the contact between Arab merchants and locals of color. The historical traces can be found in Mombassa, but especially in Lamu, this traditional small town, isolated for centuries on an island not far from the border with Somalia.
