I Have a Dream – Travel to Africa

by Sandy Salle on December 4, 2018

Our goal at Hills of Africa is to make sure you are getting the EXACT African Safari experience you WANT and just last week we had a “I Dream of Africa” party!

We understand that it is hard for you to choose where to go. Just because you see a compelling picture of an adorable lion cub on that website you loved, doesn’t mean that you are going to get the safari that YOU want. We will listen to you, and hear exactly what YOU want.

There is more to booking a safari than most people realize, that’s why you need an experienced professional to guide you. There is an enormous amount of thought and planning that goes on behind the scenes – getting you the right accommodations, getting you from point a to point b and making sure someone is there to meet you, or getting you off the aircraft and escorting you through customs and immigration. We don’t want you standing in a line, when you’d rather be enjoying your safari.

Thinking about a trip to Africa but wondering which country should be at the top of your bucket list?

If it’s your first time to Africa — and your primary motive is a classic wildlife safari — then several places automatically come to mind. Between them, Kenya, northern Tanzania, Kruger National Park in South Africa, Botswana and Zimbabwe for amazing elephants, Zambia for great cats. I could go on and on…

Kenya & Tanzania are famous for the Great Migration, and the beautiful, colorful Maasai & Samburu people.

South Africa is known for Kruger National Park for great Big Five wildlife sightings. You also have Cape Town for gorgeous coastal scenery, penguins, amazing food & wine in a bustling city.

Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Namibia offer exceptional game viewing, in some respects just as good (if not better) than the more famous areas.

For instance, Chobe National Park in northern Botswana and Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe, are probably the continent’s best place for elephants, sometimes more than a hundred in a single herd. And if you’re into hippos — or viewing animals from a canoe or kayak rather than a 4×4 vehicle — then Lower Zambezi Zambia, Mana Pools Zimbabwe or the Okavango Delta Botswana might be the place for you.

Namibia is best for amazing scenery – with shipwrecks, ocean, deserts, huge orange dunes, saltpans, mountains, grassy plains full of wildlife, and rivers in addition to its cities and villages, Namibia boasts a variety of super-scenic destinations no matter your taste.

Uganda and Rwanda are the best places for gorilla trekking. And if you are a chimpanzee fan, then we need to include Uganda for you.

Of course, Africa has a lot more than just wildlife. The best blends of beasts and beach are found in Kenya, Tanzania (specifically Zanzibar island), Mozambique and South Africa where tropical beach resorts glimmer along white-sand strands.

Madagascar is the only place you’ll find lemurs in the wild, and while you’re there you can experience the beautiful beaches and the colorful people.

We don’t simply book trips; we create once in a lifetime experiences for our clients. We believe that attention to detail and providing the highest level of service is paramount to creating an experience that will stay with you for the rest of your life.

If you are a travel agent or an avid traveler and would like to host a “I Dream of Africa” party, just send an email to hoainfo@hillsofafrica.com and we will reach out to you right away. Happy dreaming of Africa!
