For many travellers, the opportunity to go on a safari holiday is the stuff of dreams but it does not necessarily have to be beyond the reach of most holidaymakers as there are some real bargain deals available.
The first consideration is where to go on your African safari holiday as you will get a different experience depending on the area that you visit. For most first timers seeing the Big Five is going to be top of the list but even for seasoned safari travellers the opportunity to see these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat always excites.
Probably one of the most popular safari destinations is the Masai Mara in Kenya. Here huge herds of wildebeest can be seen crossing the Serengeti from July onwards and therefore their predators, lions and cheetah may also be seen with luck. Elephant, giraffe and rhino can also be spotted on the plains from the safety of the safari jeep.
Accommodation whilst on safari need not mean that you are compromising on comfort but can be in one of the many luxurious hotels that are available across Kenya. Many have exquisite spa facilities where holidaymakers can relax after a day animal watching in the bush.
Safari holidays to Kenya can be found for all budgets and direct flights from London airports make the destination easily accessible to travellers.
