1. Celebratory Reasons For An African Safari i.e. Family Vacation, Honeymoon, Anniversary…

There are many reasons for taking a safari vacation, ranging from demanding corporate bonding exercises and fundraising initiatives such as climbing Kilimanjaro, to volunteer activities protecting wildlife, helping with community development and education or research programs. But the majority of tour holidays in Eastern and Southern Africa are planned for special events such as honeymoons, anniversaries, retirement treats, graduation gifts or family bonding experiences with grandchildren, parents and grandparents. AfricanMecca Safaris can guide you towards the best options for your purpose. A family safari vacation in Africa must meet the needs of several generations, levels of health and ability and different interests, so a customized safari itinerary is best rather than a standard itinerary, all tailored to meet every family member’s need. A suitable accommodation, such as a shared villa, private tented campsite or family cottage, would be most convenient, whilst a safari with community links, cultural entertainment, educational programs and children’s activities would be ideal.

For retirement celebrations, the ultimate in “Out of Africa” Colonial style luxury would be appropriate, possibly with easy access, spa and massage facilities. Honeymoon couples on safari want to be alone together, in a private wilderness setting, possibly in a treehouse, star bed, intimate tent or a secluded chalet. If you are alone, or without children and your interest is terrestrial wildlife bush tracking by foot, birdwatching, photography or fly-camping in the ultimate wilderness, or if you wish to challenge yourself fishing, diving, or primate trekking in search of chimpanzees and gorillas, there are endless possibilities on an authentic tour in Africa. We can find you opportunities to join like-minded parties, or to experience the ultimate in fly-in safari to remote wilderness areas and off the beaten path in Africa. We can offer you Rococo opulence, or the chance to experience basic survival conditions in tribal communities, hot-air balloon trips with champagne breakfasts, or grueling climbs to volcanic craters. Whatever you dream of travel in Africa, we can make it come true. Don’t hesitate to ask us. At AfricanMecca Safaris, we pride ourselves on crafting exactly the right tailor-made itinerary for each of our delighted customers and no two safari trips are ever the same with us!

2. Pre or Post Trip Extensions For Your African Safari

Depending on your chosen safari location in Eastern and Southern Africa, there are distinct add-on options to make the beginning or end of your dream holiday even more wonderfully memorable than the common fauna and wilderness experience. You could prepare to take wonderful photo souvenirs by joining a photography course before setting out on your birding or wildlife tours. Game-viewing from a customized 4×4 in a national park or reserve is exciting, but there is much more to do, if you dare!  Walking, biking, climbing, canoeing, boating, river and lake fishing, birdwatching, gorilla tracking or scuba diving are all possibilities that can make your trip to Africa the highlight of a lifetime. You could choose to track the wildebeest migration over a hot-air balloon flight over one of the parks of Tanzania or Kenya, visit the sites of prehistoric man at Kobi Fora in Lake Turkana or at Olduvai Gorge near Ngorongoro or scramble up remote kopjes to find the rock art paintings in Diana’s Vow and Matobo Hills in Zimbabwe.

If you love cultural experiences, you can include visits to authentic tribal communities like the Hadzabe near Lake Eyasi rather than standard cliché experiences of the Maasai and Samburu tribes. Join in their daily challenges of food hunting-gathering, animal husbandry, farming, tribal consultations and more More sophisticated travelers may wish to include their excursion to explore diverse cities such as Nairobi, Johannesburg and Cape Town, or beach indulge in the Sauti za Busara music festival on the island of Zanzibar – the birthplace of Freddie Mercury. Primate enthusiasts may track down chimpanzees in Gombe Stream and Mahale Mountains, or silverback gorillas in Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park and Uganda’s Bwindi National Park. Others would like to visit major attractions in Southern and Eastern Africa such as Victoria Falls with its mighty Zambezi, glaciers on top of Mount Kilimanjaro, the thousands of elephants of that roam the Chobe and more. AfricanMecca Safaris can include relaxation on the silver sparkly beach on Lake Tanganyika where you can snorkel and dive with colorful cichlid fishes, or sail on a dhow on the Indian Ocean to unwind before flying home.
