African safaris offer a chance to disconnect from the stresses and pressures of daily life for an opportunity to connect with nature and animals in a way that can be soul re-wilding and healing. Being surrounded by the vast landscapes and diverse wildlife will absolutely evoke a sense of peace and awe that can be rejuvenating for the mind and body. Experiencing a different culture and way of life can also be very beneficial, not only in terms of broadening one’s horizons, but also in terms of personal growth and development. A safari in Africa can provide a transformative experience that will positively impact your life.

Supporting local communities around the attractions:

Long are days when almost all safari lodges and camps were run by foreigners with big investments from the western world. Masai people for example now have an association which owns camps and lodges, providing direct support to communities and helping to promote sustainable tourism.

Make memories and meeting new people:

There are many types of safaris out there, which are designed to cater to small groups so that you will have the opportunity to interact with your travel companions. Sharing stories, love of wildlife, and reminiscing about the day’s game drive while sipping a drink beside a camp fire is a wonderful way to make friends for life.

An African safari is Educational:

There is no better way for children to learn about animal life than to be able to see them up close during a family safari. It is common in many lodges to offer Junior Ranger programs in which children are taught how to track animals, while other lodges focus their programs on the local area’s culture.

Undoubtedly, South Africa, Tanzania, Kenya, and Uganda are among the best countries to take your family on a safari. While finding safaris that offer enough activities for kids and are easily accessible may be challenging, South Africa fits perfectly. Many accommodations offer children’s play areas, nannies, and child-friendly activities, and the area is almost entirely malaria-free.

Reconnect with nature:

You will never forget the feeling of being under the stars in the African bush with the sounds of the night all around you. Amid all the urban grit, it is just such an antidote.

Conservation and protecting the earth wild spaces:

Many African countries are working hard to protect their wildlife and environments and by joining one of these exclusive conservation safaris like gorilla trekking, chimpanzee habituation, tree planting, you will be brought closer to wildlife as well as to the work of local conservationists, researchers, communities and wildlife rangers. Thanks to the gorillas tourism, Mountain gorillas numbers have now slightly increased to about 1000 individuals from 200 in the early 1990s
