Safaris.me provides you with ratings and reviews on luxury safaris.
The word ‘Safaris’ Entered the English language in the late 19th century, the word safari means “long journey” in Swahili. Originally from the Arabic سفرة (safra) meaning a journey. The verb for “to travel” in Swahili is “kusafiri”, the noun for the journey is “safari”.
Today there are many operators throughout the African continent offering different levels of safari service, from lodge based tours, where clients travel between lodges or tented camps often by air, fly in safaris where clients will meet the camps and staff after travel by plane or helicopter, to the true Mobile Safari operation where the clients travel with the Guides, staff and equipment from site to site. The Mobile Safari offers guests a genuine safari experience, and they are often very ecologically friendly as they allow areas to regenerate and wildlife do not become as habituated to human presence as they may with a permanent lodge or tented camp.
