Africa has a rich a diverse culture. When going on your safari holiday, you should first consider aligning your visit with some of the various national holidays/events which occur there. Being there during one of these events will expose you to a new way of life, unique to Africa. There are numerous opportunities for you to be a part of in a place like Africa, whether that be with a sports event, or a national holiday. Speaking more specifically, in South Africa, while there is a great and diverse wildlife, which you can enjoy on a Safari, there are also things like an F1 race, a marathon, and a cycling race. Participating, or merely being a spectator, the experiences available can be a great introduction to a new culture, something which just going on holiday for a safari, and then spending the rest of your time in your hotel, probably won’t do.
