Doing certain activities such as nature walk you should try to remain quiet. Also, If you’ve been on safari before, don’t keep talking and telling everybody about what you have seen before and about your experience. It can get really annoying.
The best way to experience Africa safari is to teach yourself not to be rude…
You are not in the zoo
There is a possibility that you are not going to see all the animals from your wishlist. You should respect the drivers and guides effort to make the safari as much interesting as they can. Also, you shouldn’t make the driver stop every time you see something you want to take picture of.
No matter how tempting it may be to step outside of the vehicle without a permission and get that perfect photo of you with a rhino, don’t do it. Remember you are not in the zoo.
Don’t Bring Gun or Knife With You
Yes, that is the top “NO”. Nowadays, safari it’s all about tourism. You are there to experience the wildeness, and there are other ways to protect yourself.
Don’t Forget Tipping
You shoud know that safari guide, drivers and lodging staff salary depends on it. Find out what reasonable tip is from camp manager (usually they don’t receive tips) and don’t go over or less then that. It’s reasonable to give your guide $10 per person per day and a similar amount to the lodging for their staff.
Don’t Forget about Malaria
Malaria kills millions of people in tropical and sub-tropical Africa every year. As a visitor to these areas you are also at risk of getting this disease. Don’t forget to take malaria prophylactics. And have a safe trip.
