If you think that a traditional safari holiday maybe somewhat boring after a day or two in the African bush, think again! There are some fabulous adventure safari holidays available for those who prefer to stay active from dawn until dusk, with every country in Southern and Eastern Africa offering something unique (and exciting!) for intrepid travellers.
Depending on your time and budget, you could take a cycling safari in Zambia, and Elephant back safari in Botswana, or a heli-safari in Namibia, the possibilities are endless!
Here are some of our favourite Safari’s with a Difference for 2016… which one do you fancy?
Namibia is already a popular safari destination for self-drive enthusiasts who like to explore at their own pace, but it is possible to cycle the country too, and you’ll meet a whole host of weird and wonderful desert adapted creatures along the way. Available throughout the months of May to October, Namibia Cycling Safaris are perfect for active travellers who are looking to combine adventure with their trip into nature.
If you’ve done Kruger National Park, the Okavango Delta, the Serengeti, and Etosha, chances are, you could be looking for something a little bit different for your 2016 safari holiday. If so, you’ll find exactly what you are looking for in Mozambique, on an Ibo Island Hopping Safari!
Sailing aboard a traditional wooden Dhow in the Indian Ocean may not sound like your typical safari holiday, but the birdlife is amazing, and once you head under the ocean, you will be introduced to a whole new world of beautiful creatures. Definitely one for the Bucket List!
Photography Safaris Botswana
Photo safaris are a relatively new travel trend, but one that is growing at an incredible rate. Taking you off the beaten track in search of Africa’s Big 5 and whatever else you can find along the way, these small group tours are suitable for all levels of photographers. Exploring on foot and in open 4×4 safari vehicles, you will have the unique opportunity to get up close and very personal with the local wildlife on this type of safari, and the outstanding images you capture will serve as lifelong memories of this very special adventure.
