Want an experience of a lifetime?
Ever considered an african lion safari? Meet the king
of the beasts in his own back yard. It doesn't get any
better than that for the adventurous spirit.
You'll get a privileged insight into the natural world
of the lion. Better still, with a guided african lion
safari tour, any dangers that would normally exist are
lessened dramatically through expert leadership.
Botswana offers an excellent african lion safari experience.
The Okavango Delta is one of Africa's most beautiful
and unique wetland areas. While it abounds with a multitude
of wild animals there is no doubt the biggest single
attraction is the lion. Africa's most feared predator,
the lion is at the top of the food chain and this reason
alone is enough for the adventurous types to spend a
little time in his domain.
For most, seeing a lion close up and personal means
a visit to the local zoo but while it is still an invigorating
experience, seeing and feeling a lions presence in the
wild can only be achieved via an african lion safari.
Lions today have found it difficult to survive outsde
of large conservation areas and programs are currently
in place in the Delta to monitor and study their progress.
Dangers On An African Lion Safari
Guided tours are a wonderful way to travel through a
lions domain to see these magnificent beasts in their
own habitat. While the dangers on a guided tour are
lessened there are still some tips for beginners to
take heed of. A friend on a recent tour in South Africa
experienced the fright of his life when he came close
to being confronted by a group of female lions. Always
the exhuberant one and who shall remain nameless here,
he was travelling in a guided jeep through a lion conservation
park and despite continual warnings about not leaving
the vehicle, decided he wanted a photo of a male lion
who just happened to be a little further away than his
camera lens could focus on. To cut a long story short,he
stepped out of the vehicle and only a few steps from
it, before the guide noticed a group of three lioness'
moving in a stealth like motion towards the jeep. Just
as well he turned around when he did, and saw my hapless
friend outside the jeep and completely unaware he was
being stalked. Bottomline... a needless tragedy averted.
It's vital to listen to your guides on an african lion
safari. Make no mistake, despite their dwindling numbers
in the wild they still rule as king of the beasts. If
you think you're up to an african lion safari, visit
your local travel agent for more information and take
it from someone who knows, it will be an experience
you'll savour for a lifetime.
