  • To really enjoy a Big 5 Safari, let your eyes take all the pictures and the camera a few for memories – pack (and leave) your mobile devices at the very bottom of your luggage.
  • Pack Safari Colour clothing – biege, khakhi, brown, army green,white – and light but ‘tough’ boots for Safari Walks.
  • Be adventurous, bold and calm whilst on Safari. Always listen to your Guide, be attentive and enjoy your surroundings as you are now part of the habitat.
  • Don’t rush – we advise at least three nights per national park/ safari camp – never mind the days, enjoy every bit of the experience, you will certainly be back soon .
  • Do combine a couple of national parks/safari camps, you get to see different habitats and experience more of Southern Africa.
  • If you are afraid of mosquitoes, it’s very easy to arrange a Malaria Free Big 5 Safari in Malaria Free Areas like the Eastern Cape.
  • A few nights on the beach complement a family safari perfectly.
  • Make sure you have a pair of binoculars each.
  • Take sunhats, sun-block and pack a fleece / windproof too – Africa can be colder than you might expect.
