6 Mistakes to Avoid with Your Next Hunting Trip to Africa

Here are the most common mistakes made when planning a trip to Africa and how to avoid them.

  1. Choosing the Wrong Budget
    Africa is not a cheap destination, but with research and planning, you can get good value for money. Consider a realistic budget that allows you to enjoy your trip without regrets.
  2. Choosing the Wrong Itinerary and Overlooking the Fine Print
    Carefully consider your African itinerary. Ensure it provides the right balance, not too short or too long. Read the fine print of package deals to avoid hidden costs and surprises.
  3. Forgetting Your Seasons and Overlooking the Local Climate
    Remember that seasons in Africa are opposite if you are traveling from the Northern hemisphere. Pack accordingly, considering the varied climates across different regions. Be prepared for specific conditions in wildlife areas.
  4. Buying into Myths and Misconceptions
    Research your destination and dispel myths about Africa. Many tourist destinations are safe and clean. Don’t let negative reports ruin your trip; do your own research and consult your tour operator.
  5. Not Planning in Advance
    Plan your trip well in advance to secure flights, specials, and availability. Be aware of peak seasons and price variations. Booking a year in advance may be necessary for certain destinations or activities.
  6. Booking Your Own Trip or Choosing the Wrong Operator
    Avoid booking your own trip without an operator, as it may lead to disappointments and extra costs. Choosing the wrong tour operator can result in a poorly planned trip. Opt for a reliable African or safari operator to alleviate the stress of planning.
