Booking your hotel or flight online has become a normal thing to do. There are plenty of online platforms to make your bookings and there are just as many platforms to compare prices and reviews. However, booking a safari online is a bit different from booking a hotel or flight.
Of course it is possible to book a lodge online, that is just as easy as booking a hotel, but one needs to get there and needs to know about the distances and possible transportation. Knowledge is needed and when different safari areas should be combined, it gets even more complex. The best solution for online bookings are pre-designed African safari tours and still it makes sense to get in touch with the specialized safari tour operator to understand the details of the tour or to make adjustments.
Safaris mean being in the bush, where other rules apply than on a trip to Paris. Keep that in mind and rather ask for advise than ending up in unsafe situations. Your safari should be a great experience with amazing Big Five sightings and accommodation and transfers that suit you best.
