Few things in life can match the awesomeness of seeing Africa’s Big 5.

Probably the trip you will do shortly if you are reading this post is going to be one of the unforgettable ones. Any traveler has ever dreamed of touring the great African continent.

With this list of recommendations we want to help you on your next expedition:

 

get up early

Get up and go in the early hours of the morning. Driving at sunrise is one of the most magical experiences you can have on safari.

 

Respect safety regulations

We cannot forget that we are in a wild environment and surrounded by animals in freedom. That is why we must always pay attention to our guide.

 

basic equipment

Unfortunately the animals are where they want. On top of a tree, in the bushes… that’s why it’s good to have a good camera and matching lenses. If you don’t have it, you already have a good excuse to give yourself a gift in the form of a photo camera.

 

Clothes

Temperatures can vary from one extreme to the other on safari. The clothing for a safari is something very to be taken into account. Depending on the date, it will be colder or hotter. That means you’d better pack several layers of clothing and take them off as the temperature starts to rise.

 

Be patient

When you least expect it, a scene taken from a documentary appears that you will see two steps from your car.
