African Safari Trip Report Lists

Here you will find trip report lists with links to the safari reviews that are summarised on the African Safari Journals website for each specific Africa country and national park or game reserve so that you can view the full versions.

Many of the travel reviews on the African Safari Journals website are telephonic interviews that I have conducted with each traveller to learn more about their African safari experience so those are complete vacation reviews (I make those links available below too).

But for some I have created summaries of the full trip reports that I have come across and read elsewhere on the web and I make those complete versions available to you here in the form of lists for each African country.

You can learn a lot about a safari destination from these past safari travel reports such as the quality of the wildlife spotting, the standard of the accommodation, what the food was like, what to take with and a thousand other tips and recommendations that only someone who has already been on safari will be able to share with you (I've read thousands over the years in the creation of this website).

So take a moment to request the list for the safari country that interest you, or more than one if you want. All the links are in working order when I add them to the list but over time some might stop functioning due to a website that drops off the net or a page move, so if you find one like that please let me know and I will remove it. I try my utmost to keep them all current.

More African Safari Tips and Advice

As an added bonus I'll also send you...

  • How to select a great safari company to reduce the risk of choosing a mediocre or fly-by-night safari operator that could potentially spoil your dream holiday.
  • A packing list detailing exactly what you need to take with you on a safari.
  • The five best African safari destinations.
  • How to win a walking safari for two in one of the best national parks in Africa.

These additional e-mails will arrive over the next four days following the trip report list which will arrive immediately so keep an eye out for them in your inbox.

Simply fill in your name and e-mail address below and the trip review list for that particular African safari destination (request more than one country if you want) will be e-mailed to you within seconds...

Botswana is one of those safari destinations where it's still possible to watch wildlife without a mob of other safari vehicles turning up at the same time but you will have to pay a little extra for the priviledge especially in the Okavango Delta.

Zambia is often described as the "real" Africa, largely because it is still undiscovered. Good news if you don't like crowds. The country is home to the second-largest wildebeest migration on the continent, and the home of the walking safari.
