Safari holidays involve a trip where you go to look at wild animals in their native habitat. Safari provides a substantial amount of revenue for many African countries, including Kenya, Tanzania, Botswana, Zambia and Namibia.
They became a popular form of recreation that grew out of the activity of hunting at the turn of the 20th century. As hunting began to decline and endanger the numbers of animals, many people started turning against hunting them and instead chose to view.
Types of Safari Holidays
There are several types of safari holidays for you to choose from. You can stay small tented camps that are seasonal and removed during the rainy seasons, or you can stay in large permanent structures that have more than 100 rooms in them.
In addition, you can see animals on foot, on horseback, in cars, on the back of an elephant, or a boat. Of course, this depends on the type of soil that you and the types of animals you’re seeing.
Many companies offer specific safari holidays to accommodate you and your special occasion-whether it’s a safari for three days or seven days, taking a safari in a hot air balloon, taking a safari with your family or taking a safari with your spouse on a honeymoon.
