Going on safari in Africa is a bucket-list tick for almost every traveller, and we can tell you that once Africa is in your heart, it never leaves! A wildlife, or “Big 5”, safari (named after the five most dangerous animals in Africa – lion, elephant, rhino, leopard and Cape buffalo), is the best way to visit exceptional wild areas, and see Africa’s most iconic animals. South Africa, Botswana, and Zimbabwe offer some of the best game viewing on the continent, and each country has an entirely unique safari experience on offer.
Here at Khaki Fever we focus on crafting the perfect African adventure that’s only yours. No standard itineraries are dished out to our clients, and where there are example itineraries, they’re there to provide a starting point for creating your dream adventure.
We are allergic to the “tour group” mentality and “one-size-fits-all” approach to travel, so we have taken the time to uncover and visit the most authentic, personal and exceptional bush camps and lodges, that offer an unbeatable all-round safari experience for our guests (no matter your budget). We believe that the best safari (and African) experiences are in intimate settings, close to nature, and away from the crowds.
On safari, guests stay in luxury bush camps and lodges situated in the best wildlife areas available. Khaki Fever always chooses to support and send our guests to the most authentic camps and lodges, which allow you to stay in harmony with the bush, and experience the wild with as little disruption as possible. No big hotels or overly commercial experiences from us. Ever.
DAILY GAME DRIVES
Are conducted from open safari vehicles where your expert guide, and sometimes dedicated “tracker”, will guide you to the best wildlife sightings during your stay. From majestic trees and colorful birds, to antelope and the Big-5, your guide will teach you about them all, but remember this is the wild, and no sighting is guaranteed!
Early mornings and late afternoons are when the animals and birds are most active, and no safari is complete without daily sunset drinks at the end of your game drive. In most camps your evenings are spent around the “bush TV” – the roaring camp fire that brings everyone together to chat about their daily sightings over a class of great wine or a cold beer.
Going on safari means early mornings! This is when the animals are most active, but don’t fear, there’s plenty of time to relax in the afternoons. After lunch you can have a sleep, read your book, look out for animals visiting the camp, or cool off in the lodge’s swimming pool!
