From wildlife, to nature preserves, amazing views, and exciting adventures, The better question would be why wouldn’t you want to visit Nambia on a South Africa Tour?  Africa has danced upon the pages of kids coloring books for centuries, found its way into adventure movies, and has even become a hot tourist destination for the courageous.   There are many reasons why its’ naturally diverse plains, desserts, seascapes, wetlands, and dunes have captured the interest of so many people over time.  While the list could go on and on, here are a couple of reasons why you should consider a Nambia Safaria for your next vacation.

1.  It is like a zoo, but in real life!  Remember as kids the awe we felt staring at the animals so close and massive, but just out of reach.  The excitement of feeding a giraffe or watching a hippo play in his pool of water could entrance you for hours.  The scene is something out of fairytales, or so it has always seemed.  That is until you are able to experience a real life trek out into the wilderness of Nambia.  Lions, and Tigers and Elephants, Oh My!  There is nothing that can bring you back to those youthful days you once spent visiting the zoo, then seeing a real life Lioness playing with her cub.  Take your family to experience this once in a life time adventure, and treat the kid in you to a little bit of exhilaration!

2.  The conservation efforts that Nambia implements are unrivaled.  Africa is well aware of their rich natural resources, and the constitution even enforces that protection insuring the security to be upheld and honored.  Austin-Lehman Adventure Travel will bring you to the AfriCat Foundation, and organization that has rescued over 1000 predators over the last 17 years.   This will provide a great opportunity to ensure you snap a photo of a cheetah or leopard up close.  The countries commitment to protecting their wildlife has allowed Nambia to be one of the few countries that still supports six species of large carnivores including lion, leopard, cheetah, spotted hyena, brown hyena, and wild dogs.  A great adventure waiting to be experienced while you show your support to the efforts put fourth in this diverse haven.


3. Be a character in your own adventure.  You are not simply a bystander to this adventure tour. You need to pull on your hiking boots and experience some real life trekking experience while exploring the diverse terrain that this mysterious land offers.   While you will be able to experience the thrill of a 4X4 ride for parts of the safari, there are other views that simply cannot be fully appreciated until you conquer the climb on your own.  Well worth the breathtaking views in the end, you will be amazed at how unbelievable the sights are, and how they just keep coming.
