Even thinking about traveling to any new place brings plenty of questions to one’s mind. Although booking a safari is not all that difficult now, thanks to some of the best safari operators in Tanzania like us, how to prepare for it is another matter. This article has, therefore, been written to settle some of the most common concerns and queries about preparing for an African Safari irrespective of the when and where of your trip.

 

Naturally, there are certain expectations about what you will do or see while you are there, especially if you have never been on a journey like this before. You have probably been dreaming of going on a safari and have pictures of the animals that you want to spot. Believe me, when I tell you though that seeing these animals, in reality, is way cooler than simple pictures. In fact, you will never forget the first wild animal that you will spot on your safari!

 

So, if you are in the process of booking your tickets, you might want to book for some extra time because who knows when you will go on a trip like this again? After all, flights to Africa can get pretty expensive, so go on and try to make the most of this time - enjoy your fullest!

 

Here’s where we mention some practical do’s and don’ts while you’re on one of the best Tanzania safari tours. Read them carefully so that you never encounter any kind of issues throughout your awe-inspiring journey -

 

Try to be patient and broad-minded. Yes, your journey will undoubtedly have its highlights as you continue to spend time and get more accustomed to the atmosphere. That doesn’t necessarily mean your entire trip will be filled with wild animal spotting and awesome weather. The important thing to remember is to not have too many expectations from your tour. This is simply due to the tons of factors that can affect the outcome at every point during your safari.

 

Instead of worrying focusing on the things you have no control over, you need to be a lot more flexible if you’re going to go on a safari ride. Traveling through jungles means no roads at times - it will get rough and bumpy - as well as various temperature changes that can occur out there in the open. Don’t forget insects like mosquitoes and flies that will sometimes bother you and make the drive seem endless.

 

A lot of things are unpredictable and your expectations and approach will ultimately help you decide how much you actually enjoyed it. For example, your group may have to travel for hours and not see any animals. At that point, you just have to be patient and keep looking because you will definitely get to spot many different animals. And when you do, you will surely wish you could stay a little longer, to extend your Arusha National Park Safari.

 

Always abide by the rules. There will definitely be rules that have been made for the safety of visitors like you. Never forget that at the end of the day, you are going to view some wild animals and this is their territory, their playground. They can easily camouflage themselves and you won’t even notice them trying to hunt you down. Follow the rules, which may change a bit according to the animal to ensure maximum safety and enjoyment.

 

Communicate More Often with Your Guide. Your safari guide is, without a doubt, going to be the single most knowledgeable person in your group. Take advantage of this and learn all you can about these animals by asking them - they will be more than happy to answer!

 

At the same time, they are here to give you the best and most immersive experience possible. So, you can ask them to stop whenever you feel like taking some more pictures or if you want to ask more about the animal you see in the distance.

 

Last but certainly not least, take tons of pictures! Get as many shots as you can of the giraffe standing next to your vehicle - you won’t get a chance like now to do this! You can sort out the good ones and the really good ones afterwards.
