Designing your safari
Ok, let’s get into some detail for those of you who are ready to start thinking seriously of a Barefoot in Africa adventure. Here are some things you may need to think of.
Allow us to create a tailor-made itinerary for you or you can perhaps consider joining a group tour with set departure dates and a set itinerary.
If you want a special itinerary just for your group/family, you might need to consider things like:
How many nights you’d like to be on safari
How big your group will be (4-9 people is a perfect size)
How fit and adventurous you are (that will affect whether we do lots of walking or game drives)
Do you want to see any other parts of southern Africa? Options include:
Cape Town & Robben Island (where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for 18 years)
Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe safaris, a luxury cruise on the magnificent Zambezi River, Hwange National Park
The Garden Route, Stellenbosch (wine region)
Sun City resort, a tour of the famous Soweto township
The Okavango Delta.
We can help you or advise you on some options with any of the above
Do you want to be escorted all the way from Australia or from Johannesburg?
Do you want to spend a little bit extra and fly directly from a major city (eg: Johannesburg) to the safari lodge? Or do you prefer a longer but more scenic road trip?
What level of luxury are you looking for? You can spend upto $3000 per person per night but to be honest, we think that’s ‘overkill’. Most of the lodges we use are luxurious, comfortable and authentic. But the choices are endless.
