Top 5 Reasons To Go On An African Safari This Festive Season

During the Festive Season, there are those who dream of a white Christmas. Some, who likes to wait for Santa Claus to come to town. And then there are those who just simply want to go home. But if you are thinking of doing something that you are sure to remember many new years after, go wild!

Consider the following reasons why an African safari destination is the perfect choice this joyful season.

1. HOLIDAY ESCAPE — No Christmas Rush or Cold, Icy Slush!

Heavy traffic, stressed out parents, last minute gift shopping, and in some places, banks of snow and slippery slush as far as the eyes can see‚ if none of these scenarios is your cup of tea, then you are sure to have the perfect holiday in an African safari.

Experience what joy rides are all about in an African safari game drive, where the only traffic you’ll encounter, are ones that you won’t mind getting stuck in for hours!


Unplug to reconnect.

In this day and age of electronic nannies and one-click conversations, it is essential for you, your families and friends to find the time and the place to disconnect from any and all devices and reconnect with the people closest to your heart.

Enjoy romantic intimate candlelit dinners in the privacy of your own tent and watch the sun set with the person you love best.


The start of a new year is usually the time when we feel the most inspired to do something just as new. So this year, do that just. Ditch the usual raucous raves, flash in the pan fireworks and chaotic crowds and dare to do something that is truly wildly different.

Greet the New Year from a different perspective as you enjoy the first sunrise of the year on board a hot air balloon, gently floating above the wild expanse of the endless savannah.

4. NO HANGOVER — Just Pure, Wide-Eyed Wonder

When was the last time you woke up on New Years day bright-eyed, bushy tailed and greeted with sights so wondrous it fills your heart with hope and joy? Can’t remember? Then maybe it is time you spend a day surrounded by nature’s healing beauty and be reminded of just how wonderful life can be.

Let the wonders of nature be the first sight you see as you welcome the start of a fresh new year.


Evaluating the highs and lows of the past 12 months is a common exercise that most people go through before the advent of another year. And getting away from the noise of the city along with the distractions of everyday modern life is the perfect way to do it.

What better way to spend New Year’s eve than keeping warm in front of an open boma fire, while watching the wondrous sight of the sky’s colours changing from day to night.
