Northern Parks

Discover the real wild side of Africa on an adventure safari, choose an exciting tour that will ensure you have the holiday of a lifetime.

When choosing a safari operator, be sure to specify what kind of safari you want. Trips can be tailor made according to your travel preferences, the time of year, and what you want to see, so don't hesitate to let your operator know exactly what you want.

Remember that many of these multiple safari options are available in the same areas and parks, and that what differs is only the accommodation facilities offered; not the wildlife and the scenery that you will see.

Game drives can be long, hot, dusty and bumpy (ladies don't forget your sports bra), but are great fun!
