Are you a fan of Africa? Or maybe a fan of African wildlife? We assure you you’ve come to the right place. Our web page is nothing but a product of our deep passion for African landscapes and the large variety of animal life on the Continent. We would like to share our passion for African wildlife and Safari with all of our fellow readers. As you probably already know, Africa is situated in the Afrotropical region, equally away from both south and north which makes it the perfect continent for rich and fantastic sights to see.
Traveling, in general, is a great way to grow as a person, it doesn’t have to be Africa. Just last month I spent an amazing 3 weeks on the Dalmatian coast, in Croatia. There I had one of the best experiences of my life, by taking the Split to Blue grotto tour and visiting the breathtaking cave that you can drive a boat into. Africa is still near and dear to our hearts here at Afrigalah, but it’s good to know that there are other beautiful places out there, to keep us humble.
Afrigalah team will be working hard on promoting Africa and on fighting the preconceived notion that all of Africa is a dangerous place that needs to be avoided at all costs. A lot of places in Africa are worth visiting, with many different species of flora and fauna that’s worth checking out. As always you are more than welcome to join us in our efforts and also have fun on the various travels that we organize for ourselves. Now let’s go back to talking about our home, Africa.
Starting with insects, there are more than 100.000 insect species who inhabit Africa at the moment. Furthermore, there are over 3.000 freshwater fish species, over 2.600 birds and 1.100 mammal species in Africa. There are probably much more, but are still unknown for us. African fauna was a great mystery until the last couple of decades when people started exploring more and discovering the wildlife we know today. It is still a purpose of many scientists’ researches and explorations. Africa is thought to be the oldest Earth’s land, but it seems like we know so little about it even though it’s been her for so long.
If you ever get a chance, we advise you to visit Africa, and instead of taking time to visit cities and metropolitan areas of the Continent, take your time to explore the jungle and savannas! Hop on a jeep and visit some of the best Safari destinations (you can read about some of them in our Blog!)
One of the, at the moment, most popular ways to truly explore Africa is kayaking through the diverse landscapes of Africa. Since it’s becoming more and more popular, there is a great number of kayaking packages for tourists and visitors. Kind staff will help you pick the perfect one for you in order to fully enjoy your excursion.
Dive into the stunning and breathtaking experiences Africa has to offer! We’re sure you’ve seen a lot of documentaries about it. So you probably know how dangerous and mysterious it can get in the Savanna. But, it’s not the reason not to visit – just the opposite. This kind of immense beauty mixed with thrill and adventure you can’t get anywhere else in the world. You can be sure about that!
The best way to explore wildlife is definitely Safari. In the past, the word Safari had a very bad connotation since it usually meant wild hunting. But today, Safari is nothing but the most fabulous way to explore and observe wildlife. It is special because it offers you a chance to watch the wildlife and animals in their natural habitat. There are thousands of available tour packages on market. So, make sure to do your homework research before you choose the one that fits you the most. Both you and your budget. It’s also important to note that the most expensive ones are not always the best ones you can get.
We already told you how popular is this kind of tourism getting in the last few years. Today is closely connected with Eco and sustainable tourism.
During your exploration of the wildlife, make sure you take some incredible photos, and tag them with #africawildlife for a chance to get featured on our webpage. Apart from touristic, Safari has an incredible recreational aspect and is known as a great relaxation for both body and mind. Sounds quite contradictory, right? The relaxation coming from the thrilling adventures like Safari can’t be described using words. You must try it in order to understand it. And to fall completely in love with it!
Wildlife tourism can also disturb animals in the wild. So it is extremely important to be careful and thoughtful. The increase in interest about these kinds of tourist activities is affecting the way animals live and behave in their natural habitat. Do not involve into close approaches to wild animals to get the best photos. Keep at an advised distance at all times and make sure not to pose a threat for living animals in the area visiting. Make sure to think about some sensitive times during their life cycle. Some of them are nesting season when animals need their peace and don’t want any disturbances.
