The Evolution of Safari

The word ‘Safari’ was originally derived from the Swahili word meaning ‘Journey’ and through the 1900’s, the African safari has seen a journey of its own. From an era of self-driving throught the National Parks with packed picnic baskets to what we offer now, the Modern Day Safari boasts oppulence and the ultimate indulgence out in the bush.  




For first time visitors to Africa and for those who return, a safari is a soul-stirring experience and no visit to the continent is complete without a safari indulgence. 

Safari definitely evokes feelings and thoughts of 'A Journey into wild African landscapes, to experience mother nature at possibly 'Her Best' - Imagine undulating mountainous terrain, shrouded by a never-ending cacophony of time old trees, or an abundance of birdlife chirping a constant melody of mating calls. Top this with mesmerizing sightings of the Big Five … or the Small Five, as one traverses the ever changing landscapes, not knowing what adventure waits around the corner…
