THE LURE OF AFRICA
The vast, wild, chaotic, beautiful, and rich continent we call Africa is quite simply indescribable with only words. For centuries, people have written about Africa’s “pull” and her ability to enter your heart and never leave. Africa is a feeling. It’s a curious sense of freedom, adventure, and passion that takes grip of your life… and nothing else can compare.
Our magnificent continent is a photographer’s dream, an explorer’s playground, and a nature-lover’s Eden. At Khaki Fever Safaris we are utterly passionate about giving people a piece of their own Africa, a window into a new world, and an experience that will change them forever.
“The only man I envy is the man who has not yet been to Africa, for he has so much to look forward to.”

Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe is twice the height of Niagara Falls, and with a width of almost 6000 feet, it’s the world’s largest sheet of falling water. Its spray is visible from over 30 miles away!
The Great Migration is one of the natural world’s most impressive spectacles. 5 million wildebeest travel almost 500 miles in search of greener pastures on their circular route through the grasslands of Kenya and Tanzania.
