Most travellers are really keen to experience a luxury Africa safari – at least once! Depending upon one’s finances (as safaris are never cheap – they tend to start around £6000.00 per person or $8500.00 per person excluding international flights and can happily cost twice as much). Having said that, they are worth every penny – being one of the most amazing holidays you will ever encounter in a lifetime!
Whether its lazing idly in a hammock overlooking a pristine and beautiful stretch of beach, to having a luxury mobile tented camp set up for you, complete with candelabra and amazing cuisine (a private guide and a stunning location are a given!), to staying in a design inspired lodge with wildlife all around you – to perhaps going on a riding safari amongst the migration of the Masai Mara, or a canoe safari up the Zambezi River in Zimbabwe or a walking safari in the Selous in Tanzania or south Luangwa in Zambia, or having a private flying safari across the Skeleton Coast in Namibia, riding on the back of an elephant in the Okavango Delta in Botswana, or flying 4.5 hours to reach a fly camp so deserted that its just you and your staff and a bedroll in a tent where you can see the stars in a park as you watch the birds all come in to roost – this for me, is luxury on many levels!
