Africa’s wildlife spectacle is actually quite easy and inexpensive to access, if you’ve got the mettle of an overlander. Of course there are silver-service bush camps dotted throughout the wilds of Africa offering bespoke game viewing experiences, but unless you’re on a film star’s salary, chances are these types of safaris are something you’ll save for later, and besides we’ve got an option that is infinitely more entertaining.
Budget African travel from Overlanding Africa is definitely your best opportunity to experience Africa, her wildlife, landscapes, cultures and cities, plus you’ll do it with a bunch of like-minded people whose agenda begins with fun and ends with good times.
Here’s a fraction of the wildlife roaming Africa:
Armadillo in Africa
Cheetah Cubs in a Tree
A Herd of the Gentle Giants, Elephants
Giraffes at an African Sunset
A Horse Rider in Cameroon
Wild Dog Pups
The Greatest Show on Earth, Wildebeest Migration
Although there’s no best time to visit Africa, generally the Southern Hemisphere winter tends to offer better game viewing in Africa, the sparser vegetation and general decline in water availability means wildlife is easier to spot and animals reliably congregate around water holes.
If you’re interested in visiting Africa on a budget holiday see our Overlanding Africa Tours page, or get in touch with one of our overlanding travel consultants, they’re veterans of overlanding Africa trips and will excite you into an itchy feet frenzy about experiencing Africa from a truck.
