Optimizing Your Safari:
10 Crucial Questions to Ask Your African Safari Company

  1. DOES THE SAFARI COMPANY CREATE AUTHENTIC AFRICAN SAFARI EXPERIENCES? 

    Africa is in our blood because we were born and raised there. It means we create authentic safari experiences based on six generations of family in Africa, and more than 20 years of hands-on experience. Other companies have little or no African heritage to guide them. 
    Other companies? No. Bushtracks? Yes.

What is an African Safari?

A safari /səˈfɑri is an overland journey, usually a trip by tourists to Africa. Traditionally, the term is used for a big-game hunt, but today the term often refers to a trip taken not for the purposes of hunting, but to observe and photograph animals and other wildlife. There are some other things that a safari can be used for, such as hiking and sight-seeing. (Source: Wikipedia, 2013).

So Why Go To Africa?

So Why Go To Africa?

For over 20 years we have passionately presented the idea of traveling to Africa, and described our safaris in a thousand ways. At Bushtracks, we know, without a doubt, it is a priceless experience because we were born and raised there. But Africa’s magic is hard to convey, particularly to those who have never been. So we turned to some of our travelers to see how they feel about their luxury African safari travel experiences, and why they decided to go.

Many of them have been to Africa twice with us. Some have returned there 3 or 4 times, and one couple has been to Africa 13 times with Bushtracks and done our Cape to Casablanca private air safari twice! At the end of the day our travelers are most qualified to describe the African luxury safari experience, and they certainly say it best.
