     African Safaris
Have you dreamed about going on an African safari? Here are some good sites that cover African safaris. "Safari" means journey in Swahili, a common language in East African countries.

We list websites with background tourist and safari information, as well as, budget safari, luxury safari and outfitters that have a range of tours and services.  We also have links to safari travel guides, African wildlife books, safari videos, and wildlife photography books at Amazon.com.
Search The Web
To search the web- use African Safari + budget or luxury tours.  If there is a specific country or park you are interested in, also include that name as well.   Most hits will be for camera safaris, but to ensure that you exclude big game hunting safaris use camera safaris, photo safaris or sightseeing safaris in your search terms.  If you are interested in big game hunting, then include that term in your search.

For a hot air balloon experience over African wildlife, try African hot air balloon safaris.  For a camel safari, try African camel safaris.  Include the country or a park name if you want to find these unique safaris for a particular place.
