There are few experiences as exhilarating and life changing as going on safari in Africa. It is not just a vacation, it is a magical experience you won’t forget: – you will take something with you when you leave, and some part of you will stay behind. These photos will give you some idea of the experiences you can have.
I have been asked about the safety of going on safari many times and as someone who spent 15 years visiting various safari spots in Africa at least twice a year, I can assure you that if you have a professional guide and follow his or her recommendations, you will absolutely be safe. Additionally, most animals such as the cheetah and elephant are quite docile. However, you should have a deep respect for the animals and remember they are wild. Never approach them without the expressed knowledge and approval of your guide, and do not challenge or disturb them in any way. I have on many occasions stood quite close to a herd of elephants and even near a pride of lions and they barely paid attention to me, but I stood quietly and did exactly what the guide told me. This ensures a mind blowing experience while remaining safe.
