African Holidays - Luxury safari private vehicles.
As a keen wildlife photographer or twitcher African holidays must be right up there as the ultimate number one in the wish list of activity holidays in which to indulge your hobby or particular passion.
A luxury safari can supply not only first class accommodation in small intimate safari camps and the best cuisine using fresh local produce, often including drinks, but also the most productive locations in terms of scenery and access to wildlife. Additionally in these camps the ratio of guests to staff can ensure the personal attention which by definition cannot be produced in larger more commercialised properties. In Africa safari camps such as these are perfect for a family safari as this sort of African holiday will really keep your children entertained. African holidays come in all guises, Garden Route tours combined with Cape Town breaks and a safari in South Africa’s Kruger reserves. Luxury holidays in Africa such as this are the stuff of dreams and are a fabulous family memory when put into motion. For safari holidays Africa has it all, game rich safari locations, vast beaches, top hotels, culture and cuisine and of course the warmer weather. For luxury holidays Africa is hard to beat.
Experienced safari guides and small vehicles are just the thing for specialist interests and family safaris, exclusive use of vehicles (which can be pre-booked in advance of your arrival), will enable you to enjoy the game viewing activities at your own pace and, to some extent, timetable. As a keen wildlife photographer you will no doubt want to spend as much time as it takes to get those perfect shots and in a private vehicle you can take all the time you need only moving on when you have captured every angle - or lose the light! As a family safari this private vehicle option ensures each family member gets a chance to see the animal of their choice.
Imagine being on a game drive and coming upon a leopard or cheetah - who would not want to just switch off the engine and sit in the silence to watch the scene unfold in front of you - for however long it takes? Being in small or private vehicles can make it possible to take those opportunities when presented. Larger camps (and thereby using larger safari vehicles) have their role to play in the marketplace but the traveller who knows exactly what they want from their African holidays will be more satisfied and fulfilled by taking the luxury safari option into consideration when planning their Africa safari trip.
In addition to the African wildlife there are many other exceptional photographic opportunities - Victoria Falls in Zambia or “Mosi oa-Tunya” (the smoke that thunders) as it is known locally and the great red sand dunes of Namibia to name only two.
Photographic clubs and birding associations could offer their members a trip of a lifetime with the exclusive use of small African safari camps and all activities and game drives being dedicated to your particular passion. At the end of the day a cool sundowner drink to wash away the heat and dust will be welcome. Once refreshed by a shower, an al fresco dinner and discussion round a roaring fire about the day’s events and successes is a perfect end to the evening.
Whilst some may prefer the comforts of a luxury safari lodge, those more adventurous or who want feel even closer to the wild can opt for tented accommodation – although hardly a camping option as these luxury tents are equipped with en-suite bathrooms and private decks! Holidays in Africa need not conjure up dust, heat and discomfort!
These are just a few of the many options that can be combined with safari lodge accommodation or beach/city hotels that can be linked by a network of light aircraft transfers to form the perfect African luxury holiday. Equally, for a couple or family safari or for groups from photographic or birding clubs a huge reservoir of unforgettable memories can be created.
