It is said that the first African Safari expedition occurred in the early 1800’s, and it was described as: “rising at first light, energetic day of walking, afternoon’s rest, followed by a formal dinner in the evening where Safari members shared stories over drinks and tobacco.” Today, Safari has transformed into an experience of exploration, which can be done on land, on foot or by vehicle, or from the sky in a hot air balloon or a microlight
plane. In Eastern and Southern Africa alone, you will be spoilt for choice with over 120 national parks which can be explored by The Africa Concierge guest. Envision a national park, with huge tracts of Acacia, Sycamore Figs and River Bush Willows, with dispersed landscapes of open savannah and rushing rivers. Now fill it with Africa’s Big Five: lions, elephants, buffalo, leopards, and rhinoceros – this is the making of an African Safari.
