Frequently Asked Questions

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

What is the Best Season for a Safari?

Just about any time of year. However, the most popular seasons are mid-December to mid-March and August to mid the end of October. This is because of the demand for Christmas and winter holidays and the summer school breaks. An increasing number of visitors are realizing that June and November are ideal, benefiting from lower visitor numbers. Safari Encounter offers some safaris with greatly reduced or no single supplements in the months of April and May. Also, we may well be able to offer some good discounts for larger groups during this period – please contact us for details.

When and Where can I see the Great Migration?

The millions of wildebeest and zebras are always somewhere, but they are not always in large herds and on the move. Their location is largely dependent on the weather, which can vary considerably from year to year. In general, the herds begin to cross into Masai Mara in July and continue through August. They remain in the region until the beginning of December when they follow the rains southward back into Serengeti National Park. They can move in enormously long single file lines or in huge herds.

Are Safaris suitable for children?

A safari is a wonderful trip for any child old enough to enjoy and appreciate the experience. On most safaris, there are quite long trips on rough roads, and these cannot really be recommended for babies and very young children. Children under 12 will benefit from reduced fares on scheduled airlines, and many lodges/camps will provide an additional bed for a child sharing a room with parents at a reduced cost. Some luxury small capacity tented camps do not allow children younger than 12 years old.

 

Can I take a Safari as a Single Traveler?

Because of the size of its organization and volume of customers, we can easily include single travelers on most set date safari departures, subject to there being at least one other booking on the date chosen. There is a supplement to cover the additional cost of single accommodation. However, there is no single supplement (or a greatly reduced one) on most safaris in the low season months of April & May.
