What is a safari?


In Swahili language, safari means travel. For us westerners it is often synonymous with discovery of the great animals of Africa. This term makes one dream because it brings back to the dozens of animal reports TV programs that evoke the subject, but it is incomparable to watch by yourself, with his own eyes the fauna in its natural environment. What could be more magical than to approach the lions a few yards and look at them in the eyes, than to see herds of elephants in the savannah, than to observe the nonchalance of the giraffes in their majestic moves. What’s more exciting than hearing the noise generated at night by all these fascinating animals. A safari allows all this in grandiose scenery, far away, very far from our everyday life. This is the best way to recharge your batteries effectively. Only return is a problem!

Tanzania, for ecological and animal preservation reasons, has set up parks where only flora and fauna cohabit. These are not reserves, there are no borders and animals can come out of them freely. It is in the north of the country that are concentrated the most important parks of which the famous Serengeti National Park which adjoins Kenya.

To make a safari is to be part of this wild nature and watch live all those animals that make us dream. Certainly, it takes patience to see a leopard or cheetah hunting, but the concentration of wildlife is such in the country that it is the assurance for travellers to witness unforgettable scenes.

The guide: an essential character for an unforgettable safari

Going on a safari is living an extraordinary experience, a total change of scenery. It is driving on tracks in the middle of the savanna in 4WD vehicles that allow maximum observation, all orchestrated by the key player that is the guide. It is indeed him who coordinates all travel and who knows how to make you spend unforgettable moments. A safari is a trip out of the ordinary, on the territory of the great animals of Africa and all in the hope that tourism allows this country to continue to effectively protect the fauna so fragile in this part of the planet.
