An impending trip to Africa has the sneaky effect of generating a multitude of unanswered safari questions.
I know because I've been on more than one hundred myself (including self drives) and I've also read the hundreds of trip reports and reviews sent in to this website by past safari travelers where they often tell of their own search for answers.
Your travel agent should be able to answer some of your inquiries (if they are worth their salt), but there is often an inherent bias because they are, after all, trying to sell you their trip. And if they aren't local to Africa they sometimes lose touch a little.
So I'd like to offer my help in answering your Africa travel inquiries below. I live in South Africa and I've written a book or two about going on safari, as well as running this website for several years (more about me).
I will be able to answer most of the general inquiries that you may have, but before you ask, save yourself a little time and check if it hasn't already been answered elsewhere...
Write your search term(s) in the box below and after clicking search it will look for an answer on this site which contains several hundred pages...
And if that still doesn't provide enlightenment then please ask away below and I will answer you...
Type your inquiry below and I will answer it to the best of my ability.

Because the chances are reasonably good that you might be asking those same questions about your African safari trip if you are planning or dreaming of going on one. So here are the top five questions most frequently asked about African safaris and their answers...
1. Where is the best place in Africa to go on safari?
2. Is XYZ a good safari company?
3. What clothing and other items should we bring?
4. Health precautions - malaria
5. Do I need a visa?
I hope that these five common safari questions have covered some of the things you want to know about an African safari.
If you still haven't found your answer then ask me your safari questions and I will try and give you an answer to the best of my ability.
Search travel reviews and travelogues written by African safari travellers
I've lost count, but in all the years of building this website I have probably read through thousands of African safari reviews and travelogues.
So when Google made it possible for me to build my own search engine I knew that it was a golden opportunity to add all the best ones, which with the help of my wife Wilma, we have done (and continue to do because new ones become available all the time).
The result is a search engine that is dedicated to comprehensive coverage of African safari reviews and travelogues.
You won't find anything else in the results except experiences from past travellers who have been on an African safari themselves which we have found, read through and added by hand to this search engine (humans do still have their uses).
And that's what gives it a slight edge over any other search engine. It's extremely focused (no spam results here.)
So fire it up by entering your safari questions and learn from the African safari experience contained in each result...
