I saw the film King Solomon's Mines, starring Stewart Granger, at an impressionable age, and that may have instilled in me the romantic idea of the African safari. The reality was not disappointing. My first safari was to what was then Rhodesia, in 1966 and I have since spent as much of my free time as possible in the wild places of South Africa, Mozambique, Swaziland, Botswana, Namibia, Kenya, Ethiopia and other countries. Some safaris lasted several weeks at a time, others were just day trips or weekend breaks. On one visit to a game reserve, I was privileged to meet Stewart Granger, the unwitting cause of my addiction. Unfortunately, I no longer live in Africa, but God willing, I will go on many more safaris in the future.
These are the safari sites that you MUST see before deciding which safaris suit you best.
