What is the best month to go on an African safari?
Conventional wisdom suggests the best time to go on safari is during the dry season, which is June to October for the majority of sub-Saharan Africa. It’s easier to spot animals at this time, because they gather at water sources due to the scarcity. However, Africa’s seasonality is legendary.
How many nights do I need for a safari?
To have at least four full days on game drives will give you enough time to see an incredible amount of wildlife. Tack on arrival and departure days, travel to and from the national parks and reserves, and we think the optimal time for your safari experience is 6-7 days.

How many nights does an African safari take?
The average duration of our safaris is somewhere between seven and ten nights. With the pressures of the modern world, two weeks total trip duration seems to be about the norm and, factoring in travel time, this leaves most travelers with 11-12 nights on the ground in Africa.

Can you drive around Africa?
Driving across Africa was far more doable than I expected: The roads were safe, the border crossings not too hellish, and it was no sweat booking hotels by cellphone on the fly. But we should have taken two months, not two weeks.
Can you drive the length of Africa?
African roads are getting better every year – it will soon be possible to drive the length of the continent without going off-tar. Although you can cover ground fast when you want to, there are superb opportunities to explore some of the wildest parts of Africa.
How much does the average African safari cost?
An African safari costs anywhere between $125 and $1,500 per person per night. A budget safari averages $150 per night, mid-range $350 and luxury $750. The extreme top-safaris can easily go up to $1,500 per night, or more! There is literally a safari to suit every budget.
How far in advance should I book safari?
The quick answer is “ideally 9 to 12 months out”. i.e., if you are looking to travel in July/August, then we suggest you look at booking around October, the year before.
How long does it take to Safari in Africa?
With the pressures of the modern world, two weeks total trip duration seems to be about the norm and, factoring in travel time, this leaves most travelers with around 12 nights on the ground in southern Africa. It is often possible to head straight out on safari, and spend the entire duration of your stay in the bush.
How many days do I need to recover from an Safari?
We normally recommend at least one recovery night after your long international flight and before your safari, and many travelers will combine safari with other non-wildlife highlights like Cape Town, Victoria Falls, Zanzibar, etc. to round out the two week total trip duration.
What is a typical safari day like?
On a typical safari day, you’ll spend around 6-8 hours in the vehicle. Usually, the day starts with an early morning and a quick breakfast. Most animals are active during the morning, and in the evening when the day is cooler. Leaving too late in the day will give you less chance of seeing wildlife.
How long can you stay at an safari camp?
Length of Stay Per Camp. Again, there is just one firm rule – you can’t spend less than two nights at a safari camp or lodge. Two nights at a camp would be considered a short stay, four or five nights would be considered a long stay.
