As one of the world’s few remaining dream destinations, Africa is home to a vast number of truly mesmerising wild animals – an exotic wonderland in almost every sense of the word. When coupled with extraordinarily beautiful scenery and a vibrant culture, an African safari tour ultimately makes for an unforgettable, once in a lifetime experience. It serves as the truest way to fully immerse yourself in all that this unspoiled continent has to offer. When travelling from Australia, a Traveller’s Guide can help you see the best of Africa with ease.
To experience and appreciate authentic African culture and wildlife, South Africa should be the first stop on your safari tour. In the northeast, the untouched Kruger National Park – flanked on either side by the conservancies and private lodges of the Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve – offers you and your safari group fascinating African wildlife. Johannesburg and Cape Town both effectively serve as historical hubs while the lavish restaurants and glorious vineyards of the Cape Winelands region provide culturally rich locales like no other. Travelers should, however, remain especially cautious while staying in Johannesburg – particularly around the city’s central districts. Your hotel should be able to advise you on the ideal methods of safely and efficiently getting around.
When it comes to desert diversity, look no further than Namibia during your African safari tour from Australia. Namibia is home to Africa’s largest and most diverse nature reserve – the Namib-Naukluft National Park. The Etosha National Park is world renowned for its stunning desert plains while Damaraland – lying to the country’s northwest – is the natural habitat for rare desert elephants. The Skeleton Coast National Park is an awe-inspiring visit on any African safari: pristinely fossilised trees along with its haunting landscapes make for some of the most striking sights you’ll ever see.
The iconic Victoria Falls are at their best from April to August and are now easily reached from the southern ports of Cape Town, Johannesburg and Kruger.
With airlines expanding their flight routes within Africa, it is possible to connect from Victoria Falls into Zambia and then onto Kenya, which makes a very comprehensive and rewarding African safari experience.
