The Wild Source - Your Safari Begins Here

The Wildlife Biologist Advantage: Putting the Safari Focus Back on Wildlife

We believe most safari travelers want a trip focused on wildlife, yet there is a disturbing trend of promoting extravagant accommodation and pre-packaged itineraries based on the lodging instead of examining the best opportunities for wildlife viewing and considering seasonal changes. Virtually all safari lodges and camps tout their game viewing quality making it difficult for the consumer to know if a species is seen once a month, everyday, or at only certain times of the year. Clearly it is easier to focus on chocolate covered strawberries and the finest duvets than to understand the habitat needs and seasonal fluctuations of a diverse array of species, thus the accommodation first approach to safari planning has become common. Our approach is to first determine what the client most wants to see and experience, then our wildlife biologist will recommend the ideal locations and seasonal timing to give you the best odds possible. With the right place and right time determined, we can then choose the right accommodation for your desires!
