What to Expect From a Luxury Safari

By Nicola Shepherd

The word 'luxury' is a subjective one. What is one person's idea of luxury is another person's idea of hell, especially on a safari. Happily, you can discover your idea of luxury right across the board, for those seeking the ultimate safari.

For some, a luxury safari will mean having a private, luxury tented mobile camp erected in the finest game viewing region in Africa, with your own private guide and vehicle. It will mean having just your chosen company surrounding you and spending the days with total freedom and exclusivity. It truly doesn't get better than this, no matter what your perspective of luxury is. For those wanting more frills, you will have Persian rugs next to your beautifully sprung beds, and candelabra and silver service for your meals beneath the African sky. You, without a shadow of doubt, will have the finest guides that the country can produce - giving you the ultimate safari. You might then like to have your own private villa or house on the coast, complete with superb staff who will see to your every whim. You will have a private boat and skipper, who will take you to different islands for you to explore, snorkel around, and from where you can scuba dive.

Other experiences might be obtaining the best that money can buy - such as going on an elephant back safari in Botswana. Here you spend the days exploring the Okavango Delta on elephant back where you can get so close to the wildlife because the scent of the human is masked by that of the elephant. The best luxury safari will give you exactly what you want, and more!

Another way of experiencing the best luxury African safari would be by having your own aircraft chartering you from place to place and you can also be supplied with the best guide pilots. A perfect case in point is on the Skeleton Coast in Namibia, where you fly from camp to camp and your guides are the most knowledgeable people in the country. Here they bring this region to life for you, and it's a real, once in a lifetime safari that tops many charts!

For others seeking the more conventional use of the word, you can have your own beautiful lodges and houses that have been painstakingly decorated by the world's top interior designers, every curve and fabric you see will be pleasing to the eye. Perhaps a beautiful lodge that overlooks the ocean in Cape Town or Mozambique - or a magnificent lodge in Kenya which has 360 degree views over the African environment? Or a breathtaking lodge in the boughs of the trees in a primary forest where you can see gorillas or chimpanzees.

But, the best luxury safaris will be those that minimise any fuss in terms of travelling, give you your own space and freedom and provide you with the very best guiding in Africa. Why not start planning your own idea of a luxury safari today?
