Latest Safari Trends: Going Back-to-Basics

Latest Safari Trends: Going Back-to-Basics

Post-lockdown times have seen a resurgence in the popularity of safari vacations as people seek out more authentic forms of travel. Now, travellers are looking for new ways to experience an African safari, which has led to the rise of a new, more basic safari travel trend: Back-to-Basics Safari tours are ushering in a renewed appreciation for the raw and untamed beauty of Africa, inviting travellers to step off the well-trodden path and immerse themselves in the authentic heart of the Mother continent.

A yearning for genuine connections with nature and local cultures is driving this transformative shift in the way we experience Africa’s diverse landscapes and creating the latest safari trend. Join us as we unveil the world of off-the-grid safari experiences, where the true magic lies in embracing simplicity and venturing into the unknown.

Why Back-to-Basics Tours are Good for Digital Detoxification

A digital detox safari is another trend that combines the traditional concept of a safari with a deliberate break from technology. You can limit or completely eliminate the use of electronic devices such as smartphones, laptops, and cameras. The focus is on embracing the natural surroundings, wildlife, and local cultures without distractions. This allows travelers to truly be present in the moment, engage more deeply with their surroundings, and form meaningful connections with the environment and fellow travelers.

Digital detox safaris often take place in remote and pristine natural areas, such as national parks or conservation areas, where participants can fully appreciate their surroundings without the interference of technology. These experiences promote mindfulness, reduce stress, and encourage a greater appreciation for the natural world.

Digital detox safaris are not mandatory on any of our safari tours, but they come highly recommended!
