Useful Information for African Tours and Safaris

How Many Days Do I Need for an African Safari? 

It depends on how many game reserves you wish to visit. We recommend spending at night three nights in a game reserve. It is possible to do a multi-stop tour of different game reserves in the same country, or to do a multi-stop tour of game reserves in different countries, such as Kenya and Tanzania that are neighbors. 

How Much Does an African Safari Cost? 

There are a range of different safari packages available to suit your budget. Your choice of accommodation (which ranges from budget to luxury) and your choice of guide or self-drive will affect the price of your safari. Speak to your Tourlane Travel Expert for a free quotation. 

What Should I Wear for an African Safari? 

We recommend that you pack at least three pairs of light-fitting pants, simple t-shirts, and some long-sleeved shirts for the colder days, the early morning game drives, and the evenings. It does get cold at night in Africa, so it is sensible to pack sweaters, gloves, hats, and a scarf. Early morning game drives are one of the best times to spot animals, and you will want to be warm enough!  

When Is the Best Time to Go on an African safari? 

The best time to go on an African safari depends on the country which you choose to visit. Generally, the best time to go on safari is during the dry season, as animals are more likely to be moving around in search of water. This runs from May through October. 

Which African Safari Is Best? 

There are so many different countries in Africa that offer excellent safaris. Our top recommendations for African safaris are Kenya, Tanzania, and South Africa, which are home to the following legendary game reserves: the Masai Mara, the Serengeti, and Kruger.

More About the Best African Tour Destinations

South Africa

Whether you’re looking for a world-class safari, a beach getaway, a culinary adventure, or a cosmopolitan city break, South Africa has it all. It offers adventurous travelers some of the world's most dramatic and unforgettable wildlife viewing opportunities, like seeing the “Big Five”—lions, elephants, buffaloes, leopards and rhino—in iconic game reserves like Kruger National Park. Waterfront cities like Cape Town and Durban delight visitors with colorful culture, sandy beaches, and delectable seafood. Inland, charming towns like Franschhoek beckon wine enthusiasts with their rolling vineyards and numerous tasting rooms.

Kenya

Kenya is often called the birthplace of the safari, and for good reason. National parks such as the Masai Mara Game Reserve and the Amboseli National Park offer you a unique assortment of Africa’s wildlife. But the beating heart of the country extends past the scenic, vistas of its landscapes. From the rich history of the Masai people to its famed coffee culture, Kenya is a wonder to behold for any type of traveler.

Tanzania

The beckoning presence of Mount Kilimanjaro, the jaw-dropping sight of millions of wildebeest crossing the plains of the Serengeti, and the coastal breeze of Zanzibar’s Stone Town—these are only three of the many unforgettable experiences that are on offer in Tanzania. With 16 national parks, some of the best white-sand beaches in the world, and unparalleled wildlife resources, Tanzania is paradise for any traveler looking for an unspoiled experience in the wild.
