Safaris for older travellers

Posted by on March 24, 2022

For some people the opportunity to take a safari holiday may not be possible until later in life when perhaps they have the finances to do so but can older travellers still get as much out of a safari holiday as younger people?

The majority of travellers over seventy years of age often enjoy the tranquillity and serenity that comes with getting off the beaten track into the African wilderness and so a safari is in fact an ideal opportunity to experience all that a safari has to offer whilst also enjoying some relaxation.

In general, an African safari day begins with an early morning game drive as this is usually a good time to spot the amazing wildlife in the game reserve. Following a late breakfast there is time to relax in the comfortable surroundings of the safari holiday accommodation reading or dozing until lunch time. After lunch there is usually the opportunity to venture out on another game drive for those who want to further their experience and seize another opportunity to see the wildlife in their natural habitat. The evenings are usually a mix of dining with fellow guests and catching up on the day’s activities. For those who want to, some companies offer evening entertainment for guests usually provided by locals and may include traditional dancing and singing.
