22 Nov Enjoying Life Under The African Sun
The next you’re planning a holiday for yourself, friends and family, you should allow yourself to be enticed by a trip to Africa. There are some countries that are must visits, and should be at the top of your bucket list. If you are wanting to see animals and the biggest and best wildlife, then countries like South Africa and others in the eastern part of the continent are places to seriously consider. So, start doing your research and make some notes, see what could work for you and what might actually not. Budget and plan accordingly and then head off on that trip of a lifetime.
Nairobi and surrounds
Booking with 20 Twenty Plus that offers Kenya safari tours are a great way of getting it all in for a limited amount of cash and a small or long portion of time. They will do everything for you, booking your trips and taking care of the finest and biggest details. You should get bang for your buck and will be able to just sit back and relax and enjoy the activities organized for you and those who are along for the ride with you. Trust in the tour guides and tour leaders and they will look after you well.
The big five
How wonderful it is to witness the world’s loveliest animal doing their own thing in a natural environment. Yes, you might have seen them at your local zoo, but seeing them in their natural habitat is awe inspiring and will have you making memories of a lifetime. Elephants lapping up water at the river’s edge and lions eating a buck or hunting through the grass are just some of the amazing things you will be able to see if you like.
Heading out at night
While there is a lot you can see in the daytime, under the scorching African sun, there is sometimes significantly more to be seen in the darkest hours. Some tour groups might equip you with night vision goggles, allowing your experience to be that much more heightened. A lot of animals hunt at night, so if you want to see particularly special eating and hunting scenes – albeit from a distance- then this is the best time for you. Ask your guides if this is an option and see if they will allow you to do this sort of thing. If they do, then you are going to have a really good time.
The morning after
You might have to get up particularly early too, but it will be well worth it. With the fresh morning dew settling and the animals waking up from a lazy sleep, like the humans do to, the surroundings will be alive and well. You will be a very real part of this, making the trip all the more surreal and of course the memories that you will take back home that much more great. You will have the best stories to tell to your friends who didn’t go, prompting them to go too eventually.
