“I never knew of a morning in Africa when I woke up and was not happy,““
我完全同意我引用的一位著名作家和学校英国文学日的话。莫吉托情人。出生在肯尼亚，在东非，在非洲长大，真的让我在许多冒险中充实了身心，memories,knowledge and life experiences.
One experience,which no matter how many times you do it,总是那么神奇，is going on an African safari.There is something about seeing lions up close in the grasslands,或者一只猎豹在邻居的车顶（或者你自己的车顶）上跳跃，这是无法解释的。这是一次真正改变生活的经历。
It is thrilling to see wild animals in their natural habitat,开始他们的日常生活。If a safari is on your bucket list tick it off sooner rather than later (it is definitely worth it) and here is how to get the best out of your safari.
首先，去哪里旅行？I am going to be unashamedly biased and say East Africa,either Kenya or Tanzania,although it is meant to be really good in South Africa too.你可以读到一位博友Angie Silver在南非SingitaLe.o的豪华狩猎之旅。here.
For the purpose of this blog post I am going to talk about Kenya as safaris in Kenya are what I am most familiar with.
第一件事情是目的地。Within Kenya itself,你可以选择几个预备队。和你选择的游戏预备队一样重要，is the accommodation,which can range from budget lodges to luxurious camps.我选择豪华游览，最后一次去马赛马拉游览时，我住在奥拉雷玛拉·凯宾斯基。here.It is sometimes worth it to spend a little bit more for an unforgettable experience as after all it is a once in a lifetime Out of Africa experience 😉
You then have to decide whether you are going to go for a package tour or do it yourself. There is a benefit of having a good driver,who can often double up as a fantastic guide.They often know how to seek out the hiding spots of all the animals making your chances of seeing lots of animals higher.
National park entry fees
一个重要的考虑是，国家公园的每日收费范围从一些较小的公园的40美元到一些较大的公园的60美元以上。If you take your own vehicle there may be a charge for the vehicle too so make sure you add this to your overall budget costs for the trip.
Timing is everything
一年中你选择狩猎的时间会影响你旅行的花费以及你可能看到的野生动物的数量。The dry season,which runs from June to October,通常是一年中观赏野生动物的最佳时间。It is also the most expensive and busiest time of year,尤其是八月份，因为这是野生动物迁徙发生的时候。is one of the"世界七大新奇观也被称为野生动物世界杯。
You need to decide what works best for you in terms of timing and cost.If you can,考虑在旺季到来之前去狩猎。
Fly or Drive?？
In Kenya,you can choose to either arrive at your chosen accommodation by car or fly into the neatest airstrip.更便宜的选择是开车，但也是最长的旅程。
一旦你到达目的地，make sure you arrange to do an early morning game drive.虽然说谎可能更诱人，相信我，这是如此值得！晚上开车也可以在公园里体验日落。
一旦你开始了你的第一次狩猎，不要抱着很高的期望去一口气看5大猎物，although you may get lucky and see them all in your first drive!！
Always be respectful of the animals and keep noise to a minimum when you are nearby so not to disrupt them in their natural habitat too much.
Finally make sure you live in the moment use all your senses to fully experience the moment and adventure.尽管摄影绝对是万能的，花点时间去适应环境，非洲大草原的气味，the smells of the game drive and the sound of the animals.
