There are many different ways how to see game in Africa and there are uncountable places where to do so. We explored the bush on foot, in our own vehicle, on guided game drives and even on a boat. Walking safaris made us focus on creatures like insects and even plants and we found out that there is even a small 5 and a green 5. You are always hoping and there is a thrill of maybe crossing path with the big 5 too. Most of our safaris we vanned in our own kombie and we guess after eight months of doing it we can now call ourselves experts in self driving safaris. On top of all this.. there is a great thing about boat safaris: there is always a bar on board.
Whatever option you pick every park is worthwhile and has its highlights. This is our wrap-up of our approx. 20 000 km through Southern Africa.
