The Wild Source
On an African safari it is the large diversity of animals that can actually be observed that is so astounding! Many people dream of seeing certain animals and we work to plan your safari to provide you with the best opportunities to have a sighting of those dream animals. Because the best safari areas are open wildlands with free-ranging animals there can never be any guarantees but by picking places that historically have the best viewing of a species at the right time of year you can tip the scales in your favor. Listed below are many of the well-known mammals that people hope to see, eventually we will expand the list to include many more species. Our focus is wild experiences but for some species there are excellent opportunities for intimate encounters with captive animals that are related to important conservation initiatives that can augment your wild safari experiences. Please note such activities should be selected very carefully as there are unfortunately many instances where we believe the use of captive animals is misguided and/or unethical. We only recommend such activities when there is a clearly necessary conservation program being conducted.
