Plan a Perfect African Safari in Kenya: 1 – Introduction

Posted on 29 May 2012 by David

 African Safari Sunset


Back in October of last year we traveled to Kenya to go on a once-in-a-lifetime Safari.   We had read about the great migration of the animals, especially the Wildebeest river crossings.  It is the kind of event that you would see on a National Geographic episode and we wanted to see it for ourselves.  Since then, many of our friends have asked us to write about our experiences, so here they are – for the next week, we will focus on reviewing our African Safari trip.  By the way, if you are planning a safari to catch the crossings, you should book the camp now!  The best ones filled up very quickly!

A successful Safari requires some planning to take into account the type and location of your accommodations, the time of year of your visit, the animals you want to see, and your transportation to the Safari.  You also need a little bit of luck so if you’re superstitious, carry a lucky charm!

In the following seven-part series we’ll let you in on the details about our experience and we’ll share a few things to consider when planning your own successful safari.

In the end our safari was better than we could have hoped for.  We got lucky and saw the “Big 5” plus others not on the list that we thought were also big or must-sees.    We were also fortunate to see a Wildebeest crossing, twice!   All in all we had a fantastic time with which made the long journey well worth the effort.
