Frequently Asked Questions

Is a Safari a safe thing to do?

The short answer is 'yes'. More people each year are hurt by having a bath than going on safari. It is a safe, enjoyable and delightful experience.

Do I need inoculations?

You will need to ask your family doctor for the types of 'jabs' that you will need, including Yellow Fever.

What are the Big Five?

The Big Five game animals are the lion, leopard, rhinoceros, elephant, and Cape buffalo and most if not all of our visitors will see the Big Five!

What is the difference between a camp & a lodge?

A camp is predominantly accommodations made from canvas and a lodge is a permanent structure. 

When is the best time of year to see the animals?

Unlike you, the animals never go on holiday. They will always be on view, but it is true that the weather is different throughout the year. See the SEASONS section on the country pages.

What clothing should I bring for my safari?

This is a great question!We will give you a comprehensive list of suggested items to bring with you on safari from day wear to evening wear and dependant on the season.

Do I need to tip our driver guide or is it up to me?

It's polite to tip the driver - but that is up to you. Our drivers are skilled communicators, always polite and ready to help you as far as they can. 

Is there anything I can do more to help the environment?

Another great question. We can provide you the opportunity to engage with local community programmes and animal welfare projects.

How do I pay?

You can pay via bank transfer to our office in Tanzania or by using a credit card. Your payment is PROTECTED by your bank and our bank (Barclays plc).

At what age do you think I could bring my child?

Even children vary in their capacity to enjoy a safari. Road journeys can be long but most children over the age of 7 years thoroughly enjoy the experience with no difficulties.

Is Wild Africa the cheapest way to book a safari?

We guarantee that if you find this EXACT same experience cheaper with another operator we will match that price.
