Welcome aboard for this week’s armchair travels, where we
uncover some of the not so well known safari destinations in Africa. It
can be easy to focus all your expectations on ticking off the ‘Big 5’ when
planning a safari holiday but some of the other options offer the chance to
experience a different, hidden magic of Africa which can be equally
rewarding, if not more so.
Safari means ‘long journey’ in Swahili, the language of East Africa.
Africa is synonymous with safari and safari has long been synonymous with the
Maasai Mara, the Serengeti and Kruger National Park. #The safari market is very mature in these regions, offering lots of choice at all budgets, animals more used to humans for increased sightings and an all year round season.
However, there are also more under the radar alternatives for
experiencing life under African skies.
We’re getting right off the beaten track, taking in five alternative
African safari destinations all with something unique to offer. Walking
safaris, impossibly romantic lodges, tented bush camps, secretly observing
life at a waterhole from a hide, traditional dugout canoe trips and nights
under the stars all add to the authentic African experience.
