DISCONNECT & FIND YOURSELF
Going on an African safari is quite simply one of the most incredible things you can do for your mind and your soul. Being able to experience raw and wild nature that has remained unchanged by man; and being able to feast one’s eyes on and calm one’s mind in natural environments that are unspoilt and so far flung from our norm, is truly one of modern day society’s biggest privileges.
African safaris come in all shapes and sizes. Gone are the days where a “safari” meant sitting on the back of an open-sided Jeep for two weeks on end, witnessing nature at arm’s length. Today, a safari means immersing yourself in the raw beauty and tranquility of Africa’s countless and incredible destinations. From traditional Big-5 safaris, to walking safaris, hiking, kayaking up crocodile-infested rivers, or learning about native cultures and enrolling in a nature course to learn more about Africa’s wild things, Khaki Fever is passionate about giving you an authentic and “rich” safari experience, whatever shape it might take.
Your Africa Awaits!
“There is something about safari life that makes you forget all your sorrows and feel as if you had drunk half a bottle of champagne – bubbling over with heartfelt gratitude for being alive.”

Hippos are fascinating creatures! They are vegetarians (they do not eat fish), they give birth underwater, they are more closely related to whales than to pigs, and they ooze a pink liquid from their skin which acts like a sunscreen!
