How To Spot Wildlife On Your African Safari?

The success of safari holidays is generally judged by the kind of animals that you have seen. Although many travelers venture to Africa in search of more than just a breathtaking encounter with one of nature's most iconic creatures, it is this underlying desire that fuels much of our enthusiasm when thinking about an African safari.

There are several tours and travel companies that can take you in the woods to show you the unexplored land of Africa, but not all are the same. If you want to get the best African package deal, you may try this website.

We can all appreciate the frolicking energy of the antelope and the vibrancy and chaotic murmur of a large herd of zebra but the species I am of course referring to is the 'Big Five' animals that have become synonymous with a safari adventure.

The Big Five consist of elephants, rhinos, lions, leopards and buffaloes, some of the most spectacular specimens of large mammals in the world can be found across Southern and Eastern Africa's vast plains and savannahs and this is not to mention other species such as cheetahs, giraffes and the mighty river-dwelling hippopotamus.

Although with the right kind of preparation and understanding you can come away from your African safari with an unforgettable experience, memories that will live with you forever and a catalog of breathtaking photographs to entertain family and friends and have them green with envy.

One of the most important factors to take into account is the time of year that you travel. The dry season is a popular period for safaris for a reason and this is due to the fact that limited water makes the remaining water holes that offer a constant source become prime grounds for animal watching.
