A desert is a barren area of landscape where little precipitation occurs and, consequently, living conditions are hostile for plant and animal life. The lack of vegetation exposes the unprotected surface of the ground to the processes of denudation. About one-third of the land surface of the world is arid or semi-arid. This includes much of the polar regions where little precipitation occurs and which are sometimes called polar deserts or “cold deserts”.

The big question: Private or Group safari?
Safaris are clearly the perfect holiday activity. Visiting new places, seeing new and exciting things, and generally experiencing something totally outside of your normal everyday life, . When planning a safari there are number of things you have to consider, (1) destination, (2) affordability, (3) wardrobe, and (4) who to have this experience with. This is where the question of whether to have a private or group safari comes in.
What is the difference between a group safari and a private safari?
A group safari is where you are part of a group of people who are booked for the same safari itinerary. It means you are not in control of the safari. Group safaris are a good opportunity to meet some new, nice and interesting people and make friends. while have control of your itinerary. You usually get to decide, where to go, what time, activities and where to stay. You get to make all the choices of course with some recommendation with your safari guide. That’s why most people usually prefer private safaris.
Listen to your guide
Paying attention to your guides is the most crucial thing to do on safari. The guides are experts in the environment and animal behavior and they will have the best judgement in any situation. Their job is to keep you safe so it’s imperative that you always follow their instructions.
Do not disturb the animals
The plains of Africa are not a zoo and the animals must not be disturbed as they roam about in their natural habitat. Never call out or wave to an animal as this will spook them. They will either run away and ruin the sighting experience for you and everyone else, or they’ll charge at you, putting everyone’s life in serious danger.
It’s important not to make too much noise as animals scare easily. The animals are used to the sounds of the vehicles but human noise will upset them. Mute your devices to avoid any loud beeping and if you need to talk, do so in a whisper. It’s easy to embrace an awed silence when you’re immersed in a thrilling search for wildlife. Sit back and let the beauty of the African bush take your breath away.
Don’t get too close to animals, as they are unpredictable and can move very quickly when threatened. It goes without saying that you should never try to touch or feed an animal.
No food or drink:
Don’t bring any food during a game drive. Animals have an incredible sense of smell and will be attracted by something as small as a wrapped candy.
Sodas and sweet drinks always lure stinging insects so stick to water. If you do need to eat while on safari (possibly for medical reasons), try to pack your meals in a sealed container before heading off to a game viewing.
Safari Unforeseen changes
(1) The Rain and getting stuck.
Xavier safari has no control over the weather conditions but should it rain before the start of any activity, it will not affect the safari schedule, but if it rains the whole day then the activity will be cancelled because it’s hard to view animals during the rain , they too will hid in bushes. and if there is enough time then your guide will discus rescheduling of the activity. How long the rain pours is also another factor plus the state of the roads after the rain. this should not worry you, your group leader or safari guide will be in position to make your days great if you listen to him and be time with out delay.
No smoking or littering
These are two big No-No’s. Smoking is a fire hazard in the African bush and will pollute the natural environment and disturb the animals. Littering is also never okay. Leave no trace and dispose of all trash in designated bins. if you want to smoke, kindly ask your guide to find a good smoking area for you. But smoking in the vehicle, hotel rooms gathered groups and public places is not allowed.
If a safari vehicle breaks down?
If you are on a guided game drive, your guides will be well-trained in vehicle breakdown procedures. Stay calm and let your guides handle the situation like, “The a safari Jeep breaking down with a pride of lions quite close by – adrenaline extreme!” While it was a heart stopping experience. the guides will expertly managed the situation and you will all returned to camp safely.
Time management during a safari.
Xavier safari time quote:
The two most powerful warriors are patience and time is money and waits for no one
Better thirty minutes too soon than 20 minutes too late. Lost time is never found again and is the most valuable thing a man can spend as the wisest counselor of all.
Safari guests always want to make the most of the 12 hours they have every single day during a safari. Though It seems that there are people who even have attendance or habit of being late for an activity. Xavier safaris does brief guests after dinner or an activity about the next day’s schedule or program, sleeping early and doing personal things on time gives you ample time to manage time.
What is the secret, How to be more successful at managing time? Conscious time management is the key.
Managing your time well will positively influence your day’s program. Mastering the skill of managing your time, you will be able to complete your activity on time thus giving you enough time to view animals in a quiet environment. during important meetings and be always proactive and creative in your tasks. And what you definitely need to succeed in this field is to find an appropriate time management application. Always read and understand your itinerary or safari schedule every evening with your guide before going to bed and always have awake up alarm set before going to bed.
almost all lodges and hotels in Africa, have wake up call with a cup of coffee or tea in the morning if you place your wake up call before going to bed.
Manage your expectations
Your safari guides want you to see the best wildlife but there’s no guarantee you’ll spot everything. Animals are unpredictable and often like to remain hidden as they roam freely around the massive reserves. For many people, African safaris are a once-in-a-lifetime experience and they travel a long way with high expectations. It’s unlikely that you’ll spot the Big Five on your first game drive, so try not to be disappointed and don’t get frustrated with your guide if it’s not possible to find every animal you want to see.
Terms of payment: you will have to pay full safari price amount one months before the beginning of this safari.
Travel age: One must be above 18 years of age. if one is below 18years he or she must seek permission from a parent or guardian with a written letter addressed to Xavier safaris allowing him or her to join a group safari. Children must be accompanied by their parents. or guardians.
Monthly instalment payment: you have enough time to save and pay for this safari or pay the safari price on monthly installments until 21 days before the scheduled departure date.
Xavier Safari payment system:
There many ways to pay for this safari, xavier safari does not have online visa payment system. but you can pay using bank to bank transfer( to avoid the transfer coming in late. and after payment kindly send xavier safaris the transfer confirmation receipt.
Note: After making your safari booking with xavier safari you will receive a call and then xavier safaris will email you the company bank account details. Don’t make any payment to any one unless you have spoken to xavier safari coordinator who will issue you an invoice from xavier safaris with a safari reference code.
ACCOMMODATION NOTE: This is a group or a family safari, with shared accommodation, vehicle, fuel and experiences, each room or camping chalet will be shared by two people, each sleeping on separate bed if they are not a couple, so each room will have two beds and one bathroom and if you want a room by yourself you will need to pay a single occupancy supplement fee on top of the safari price.
MEALS: Some lodges and hotels offer Full combo meals that are made up of three courses: an appetizer, main dish, and dessert. Also known as a three-course meal and other lodges and restaurants offer a la carte menu to choose from, you will sometimes see restaurants offering a menu with three-course meals to choose from, every country has different food choices, all the food from these countries is prepared fresh from the garden with local ingredients .
Allergy: If you are booking or joining this safari, kindly send a detailed email to Xavier safaris informing us about any allergies you might have so that Xavier Safaris informs the hotels and restaurants in advance.
Hot Shower : Most of these camps and hotels offer hot showers and a few others offer warm showers.
Luggage and packing:
Your luggage is limited to one backpack or one duffel bag and one daypack weighing no more than 25kg. As a general rule, ‘if you cannot lift your own luggage, you’ve got too much stuff!’ Most people make the mistake of bringing too many clothes on safari,
Please keep in mind that this is a safari and luggage should not include any Samsonite style suitcases. As the wheelie / trolley bags have a solid frame, they don’t squeeze into spaces the same way a backpack or a duffel bag does, African safari vehicle trunks and light inland aircraft cargo compartments are narrow. If the frame does not fit in the cargo compartment, then there isn’t many other place to put your bag and it will inconvenience everyone else on safari. Also, by day two, the mud and stones will get into the little wheels on your wheelie bag and the novelty will be over and you’ll be carrying your suitcase from A to B. They aren’t as comfortable to carry as a duffel bag and as you think you don’t have to carry it, you end up packing a lot more than you need. pack less clothes and have the dirty ones cleaned at the hotel, camp or lodge. A compact & flexible water proof duffel bag is perfect for stashing into the cargo compartment.
Good example of a duffel bag. For most airlines, flights and safari vehicles, a carry on duffle bag must be no larger than 22 x 14 x 9 inches or 45L
Not a good idea example
On safari you will generally need to take along a smaller day pack for excursions. For example on gorilla trekking, chimpanzee tracking, hikes and game drives you will need a smaller bag, big enough to bring basic equipment like camera, water, insect repellants and others.
Example: carry this type
Your clothing should be easy to wash and dry and should preferably not need ironing or hot pressing. Many travelers underestimate how cold Africa can be – remember your jersey/jacket! There are also nights that are warm but you must still wear clothes that cover arms and legs from mosquitoes and other insects, and there are days that are warm, but some nights can be cold, so plan carefully. Take a set of casual but smart clothes for the occasional evening out in a restaurant or club. If you wear glasses (or contacts) it is also advisable to bring a spare pair along.
Laundry: Try to pack few clothes as possible. For this safari!, you can have your laundry done at each lodge or hotel at a little fee that you will pay for. some hotels and lodges use washing machines and others use hands to wash, then use the sun to dry the laundry and later iron using either electric flat iron or African charcoal flat iron. Keep in mind that you are prohibited to carry a flat iron garget to use tin a hotel, camp or lodge.
ELECTRICTY: Every country. hotels and lodges are different in style, service, amenities and location. so a few Lodges and hotels use hydro power (220 volts/240volts) power out put. Others use generators still with (220 volts/240volt output. Also there are some lodges, hotels and camps that are located far from the hydro electricity grid system use solar power, still giving an out put of(240volts) for mostly charging phones laptops and lighting, no high voltage appliances above 200watts to be used at camps or hotels that use solar power . Kindly remember to carry an international travel power Adapter.
Safari group leader: For This 26 day safari, Xavier safari will appoint a group leader to lead, supervise, coordinate, instruct, and manage the group in a variety of settings and professional manner. This appointed group leader has all the required specific qualifications and additional skills. He has handled group safaris from 32 travelers up to 68 travelers with in the last 18 year. He will be with you through the entire safari from the day you arrive at OR Tambo International Airport up to the end of the 26 days up to ending from Entebbe International Airport Uganda.
Behavior during a group safari!:
There is always a good chance that your group safari might be all good, fun, full of excitement, with good company, wonderful people, sights-generally a perfect trip. But there are so many reasons why they do not quite work out perfectly for most people. Some of these reasons are.
(a)Travelling with strangers on a bus, Jeep can be trying, but try putting 6-8 strangers in a vehicle across the African plains with bumpy roads, too much heat, and dust. Even small things like whether the air conditioning is on or off, getting a flat tire and vehicle mechanical breakdown can be annoying. It’s the little quirks and annoyances that make group safaris difficult and sometimes unenjoyable.
(b)A group safari is basically putting together a group of people with different cultures, dreams, personal interests and having different expectations of how their safari should be. If these expectations are not met for each of the safari individuals, the excitement can die. that’s why Xavier safaris includes a group leader for each group safari.
Group Safaris usually use group lodging and camps and not the private intimate ones. So there is not much privacy unless you paid extra for a single supplement room.
Xavier safaris operates on schedules with group or private multi country combo safaris ,or game drive viewing so the itinerary is already laid out, and you cannot add another place to it. So, you can’t make a stop at that scenic little park you see along the way if it is not part of the itinerary the itinerary.
It is simply important to read the itinerary carefully and thoughtfully consider it before joining. Get to know what the offerings of each option are. Find out what is included in the safari price tag, activities, trekking, hiking and entrance permits, accommodation, meals, etc. Flexibility and positive attitude during the whole journey makes a safari successful and binds the group together. it is better to leave the negative attitude, problems at home and reunite or bond during this safari, if their is a problem within the group inform the group leader about it and he will sit you all down and solve the problem.
