If you are planning on booking your very first safari trip then it can be a little daunting. You may be surprised by the number of options you have in terms of the type of safari you want to do and the accommodation you would like to stay in. Most good safari holidays costs thousands of pounds, so it may be that you have been saving up for a number of months or years or that you are planning one as part of a special trip for an anniversary, honeymoon or birthday for example. This is often an even bigger reason to ensure that it all goes to plan and that your experience is one to remember for all the right reasons.
Ideally you will want to do plenty of research and read reviews to find out which types of safari trips will suit you and the other people in your group. If for example, you have children travelling with you then you will need to find a safari lodge that advertises that its family friendly and ensure if going to Africa, it is in a malaria free zone. Once you have a better idea of the options available you, you can then start to find out costs from different travel agents to find the best price. Looking online will often give you the most options as there are many specialist companies that offer safari trips but do not have physical premises.
