What age is best for safari in Africa?

However we do generally prefer to stick to the Jun-Oct dry season where the health risks are at their lowest. Most safari camps accept children in this age range, although there are many which start at 8 years, a decent number at 12 years and a few more hardcore options which start at 16 years. And some trips cannot be made with children because of the forest traits. For example many people below the age of 18 are advised not to go for gorilla trekking since you never know what could be faced in the forest.

Full Board as standard

Our safaris are offered on a Full Board basis (bed, breakfast, lunch and dinner). We do this because you do not have a choice of restaurants at your destination. And then we can arrange it better (cheaper) in advance than you have to organize this yourself every day. The arrangement is different for a number of trips.

What is the best travel period for a tour in Africa?

Have you always wanted to go on a safari to Africa? But when should you go? What is the best season, the best travel period, the best time for a safari?

That is one of the questions travelers often have.

It matters where you are in the Netherlands—in Limburg or the Wadden Islands. This variation may be even more pronounced in Africa. Every African nation is significantly bigger than the Netherlands—from Uganda, which is six times smaller, to South Africa, which is thirty times larger—and there are also variations in altitude. Significant variations in rainfall, temperature, and the variety of fauna observed result from this.

Typically, June through September is the ideal month to go on a safari. This is the time of dryness. Additionally, this time of year is marked by no rain, a run-out of animal drinking water, and a gathering of animals around the few remaining drinking areas. The grass is low and the leaves on the trees and shrubs have been eaten bare.  Leaves fall off or wither and stop growing. Put simply, you have a fair amount of visibility. When combined, these two elements guarantee that you will see game more rapidly and in locations where your guide is well-versed on where to find it. For many, therefore, this is the ideal time to go on a safari.
