What is the Experience of Travel to Africa?

You can expect one of the best trips of your life. A combination of varied and beautiful scenery, exciting game, cultural experiences and depending on your trip, exciting activities. Africa travel offers a high degree of comfort, excellent service and delicious food.

A safari is exhausting yet exhilarating. An average day begins at dawn with tea and a sunrise game drive. You are back to the lodge in time for a wonderful breakfast with fresh baked breads, local coffee and your choice of items such as eggs, pancakes and fresh fruit. During the heat of the day when the wildlife is at rest you may wish to relax too. If you prefer, a full day’s game drive can be arranged with a picnic in the bush. Some areas offer walks, horseback riding and village visits.

In the afternoon when the wildlife again comes alive, there is another game drive that will go until sunset. Many of our safaris will stop for ‘sundowners’ in the bush. Bush walks are planned with picnic lunches. In some areas we can arrange for night drives and other activities such as a village visit. In the evening, everyone gathers to exchange stories of the bush. Sometimes there is a roaring campfire and stories last long into the night. Retire – sleep well as the sounds of the bush put you to sleep. We do not know what tomorrow will bring, but we can assure you it will be another exciting day!

The local people are wonderful and love Americans. East Africans and especially our guides have a special affinity for the children and you will find much of the conversation devoted to their interest. There is nothing unusual about an instant soccer game, an exchange of jokes or a spontaneous dinner at a local home.

When you travel to a safari country such as Kenya, Tanzania or Botswana your main goal is to see the wildlife. Born Free always mixes the days drives with stops at village, handicraft shops or to take a walk to learn about the flora and fauna. Most of the time the trip is paced to the travelers interests. When heading to South Africa, Ethiopia, Egypt, West Africa and North Africa your experience will include visits to historic sights, cities and interactions with local people.
