South African Wildlife Safaris And Tours
Total Articles: 400
The best way to explore the South African jungles is take a wildlife safari tour package with a professional guide. Though the cultural heritage, cuisine and urban life create a unique and unforgettable experience, the best of South African tours is in the wilderness. The rugged and wild countryside makes one feel out of this world.
With more than 33 National Parks and Game Reserves, the best time to explore these destinations is during May to September. The premier national parks are Kruger National Park, Mala Mala GR, Sabi Sand GR, Phinda Game Reserve, Kgalagadi TP and Hluhluwe Infolozi GR. These wildlife reserves showcase sightings of lions, elephants, giraffes, hippos, zebras, white rhinos, leopards, black wildebeest, etc.
Though there are several protocols established for the safety of travellers, the tourists are also expected to follow certain rules. These rules are eco-friendly and make the wild safari a safe experience with the right amount of thrill. Tourists are not supposed to step out of a car during game drives. They are allowed to step out at the designated locations only.
Tourists are advised to not get too close to the animals. This is typically applicable to self-drive safaris. Most travellers get curious and move too close for the comfort of animals. For example: Don’t drive between elephants and their females and children. Hippos must always see their safety route out of water. Don’t block that route for them. Running in a wild area attracts the attention of the predators. Therefore, tourists are supposed to walk calmly and they are expected to not wander off from their group.
Tourists are expected to follow basic rules of camping such as the ample use of sunscreen, water, hats, simple and sweat-absorbent clothing. In the evening, travellers must apply sufficient (20-30% DEET) mosquito repellent to protection. No one is supposed to leave any food items in the camp as the odour attracts animal’s attention.
Though Kruger Park is very busy during the high season, safaris at this park include sightings of buffalos, elephants, leopards, rhinos and lions. Hluhluwe Infolozi Game Reserve has white and black rhinos. But there is no high end accommodation for tourists. In spite of that, this reserve gets quite crowded during peak season because of the abundant birding opportunity and exciting sightings of major wild animals. Phinda Game Reserve is famous as a luxury game reserve that offers several plush accommodation options.
The professionally trained guides always give more practical and appropriate advice. Tourists are expected to follow it sincerely as their hands-on knowledge and experience offers unique insights into the wilderness Travellers would find a South African tour package with a wildlife safari much more rewarding, if they follow the safety precautions.
