Taking part in a safari holiday is obviously going to be the adventure of a lifetime. When else will you get the chance to see the big five, namely buffaloes, elephants, rhinos, leopards and lions, all living in the wild as nature intended? Not only will you get close to the animals, but going on Safari lifts the veil on how incredible the natural world used to look, before man began to meddle with his environment. With this in mind and given the rate of urban spread, it’s a good idea not to leave booking your Safari until too late. Ideally you want to see the national parks of Africa as they currently exist, vast in size and full of wildlife.
It’s of paramount importance that your safari tour operator has an in-depth knowledge of this kind of trip. On safari, you will be in the wilderness, surrounded by big cats, so you need an experienced guide to ensure you actually see them! Your guide will know where to take you, what time is optimum for the best views and how close you can safely get to the animals without disturbing them. It is for this reason that Aspen Travel chooses its travel associates very carefully. Travelling thousands of miles to survey some empty planes in the heat of the day is the last thing you want on safari!
Everybody we agree to partner with has a proven track record of providing an impressive African safari experience. We use Cheli and Peacock for Kenyan safaris and Somak, Bales Worldwide and Cosmos for other destinations. These travel companies know the terrain, know what their visitors want to see and know how to get it them to it. They also deliver a high-quality package regardless of whether you’re camping, flying over the plains or staying elsewhere.
Our safaris take place all over Africa, in Botswana, Kenya, Namibia, South Africa, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe. You can take in the sites of Victoria Falls and Mount Kilimanjaro, whilst there. Two of the most popular national parks are probably the Serengeti and Kruger, but if you choose to travel to Rwanda and Uganda, you’ll also get a chance to see chimps and gorillas as well.
When you book a Safari with Aspen Travel, you’re guaranteed a safe, all-inclusive holiday, with all of the fun and none of the stress. Give us a call today to find out more about our destinations.
