your fun African wildlife guide

read snippets put together by the bushtreksafaris team..including their favourite animals & their unusual likes.. important hints & tips when watching these animals

You can expect to see animals with richer coats/fur/hides/skins, colours so vibrant they almost pop against the dense forest green or dark cotton soil in rainy seasons as well as against the parched savanna during the dryer months. Seeing these beautiful animals in their pristine yet fragile home, under the beautiful equatorial sun, is hard to put in words and justify with digital imagery.

Don't forget, these are wild animals & no matter how docile they may seem, do not attempt to interact with them unless organised in a controlled environment while on your conservation safari
