As the third largest land animal, the hippo can reach up to five meters long. It’s easy to understand why seeing them in their natural habitat is always such a thrilling experience. On a hippo safari, you will be able to observe these epic animals from a bridge or from the side of a river. You will witness them grunting and yawning, as they slowly swim around. Be warned that they are also considered some of the most dangerous animals in the world. So during your safari trip, rest assured that you’ll be observing them from a distance.
Africa is not all arid deserts and vast savannas teeming with large mammals and predators. Its barely touched jungles, narrow valleys, dramatic cliffs, snow-capped peaks, and crystal-clear seas are just aching to be explored.
By the time we got to Amboseli, passing colorful Maasai men and women, who rightfully called this area, too, home, I had gone through many states of tiredness, boredom, indignation, seen the slums of Nairobi and then let them all go down with a teasing French fry.
Going on a safari in Africa is inspiring and exciting. It is also wild. And while wild animal encounters make the experience that much more memorable, they are the biggest reason why we should discuss safety.
