Travel Insurance is very important for people who are not willing to take a risk on loosing a significant amount of their travel fees. There are options to cover the most expensive events such as medical or full cancellation.
A safari is an adventure and like all adventures it is full of stories and special moments.
Great photographs enhance and help tell the story. This post is a menu to what I feel are my best Safari Photo Stories
If you go on a safari, you will return with hundreds of stories from the wild: predator vs prey, survival, and cooperation among wildlife.
My safari guests stay at my own Tree House lodge which I build myself. We are very proud to announce a new addition to Our Lodge. Our 4th tree house is complete and ready for guests.
Since we host safaris in both April/May and September/October we get asked frequently which is the best choice for a photo and wildlife safari . The short answer is that they are both great times to visit South Africa and see wildlife. Given this, there are differences which I will point out.
Giving gratuity is part of the tourism culture in South Africa so you will need cash for this and a few other cash expenses. Credit cards are not always advisable so I recommend cash.
Photo safaris are geared toward wildlife lovers and photographers of all abilities wanting to add many great photo to their collection. Most of your time will be spent out in the field and you will have long days that start early. Relaxation time, luxury, and a slow pace are not a priority.
