It is important to note that “crowds” are not as big of an issue in Africa as they are in other parts of the world. Yet it is true that much of the magic of an African safari is closely tied with being able to enjoy the vast wildernesses in relative solitude. There are two main ways to minimize the presence of other visitors. First, you may want to consider traveling outside of the peak travel seasons, which is when the vast majority of Americans and Europeans are on vacation (our summertime and holidays). But you may also want to considering visiting more exclusive areas, which are made private through higher cost or remote location. Piper & Heath has many specialties, but being able to weigh the pros and cons of timing, budget, and location to advise what would be best for you is something in which we take particular pride.
