It is important to note that safaris and adventurous holidays in Africa can be, by their very nature and the environments in which they take place, culturally challenging, physically demanding, risky to health, potentially dangerous and, without the correct preparation and skills, horribly disastrous! The type of preparedness one undergoes is usually based on previous personal experience and the pre-departure advice supplied by the travel companies who organise your trip (tour operators and safari outfitters). These elements vary enormously, from individual to individual and from company to company. This book is intended to cover all the aspects and contingencies one might encounter, by providing a selection of advice, checklists, guidelines and essays, designed to help the reader, whatever role or position in the group, to have an enjoyable and successful trip.
This book is a safari and adventure travel handbook, aimed at both guides and the guided intending to go on a safari or expedition in Africa. Surviving Your African Safaris by Steve Foreman.
