The African safari reviews and trip reports featured here are told by people who have experienced such a trip themselves so they are the informed, unbiased and independent experts.
Nothing beats being there in person for getting the real story.
The guidebooks and travel agents can give you all the facts about such a vacation but past safari visitor reviews and reports (listed by African country) give you the first hand testimony, recommendations and insights of people who have actually experienced it for themselves.
They can tell you exactly what the accommodation was like, which animals they saw, the quality of the food, whether the guides knew what they were doing, what safari clothing to wear, what to pack (complete list) and a multitude of other tips and recommendations.
