South Africa is known for its many varied wildlife and the national parks. Tourists visit the country especially to enjoy the open jeep safaris and the night safaris. There are different national parks in the country each with its own unique features. The night drives offer the traveler a very different perspective on the wildlife. It will be an unforgettable experience to spend a night with wild animal and is a must do activity for all lovers of the wild. It was earlier only the up market private game reserves that offered night safaris along with accommodation in the jungle. These were a tad too pricey to be enjoyed by all sorts of tourists.
But nowadays, there are more options available to the tourist to enjoy the sights of animals in the night time. Different areas of the country have huge populations of specific animals. In the summer times, the animals too hide away from the heat and come out as the sun and the heat settles down. Zebras, rhinos and giraffes in huge herds are a common sight that can be enjoyed. A safari can be arranged for any number of days depending on your total duration of stay in the country and the budget. It is generally recommended to take a minimum of 2 days to a maximum of 5 days. Even though the forest is thriving with a variety of wildlife, the viewing of animals is dependent on chance. It is impossible to cram all the sights of the jungle in a single night.
Choosing the right safari or reserve is essential to enjoy the trip. The up market private reserves might charge you exorbitantly even up to 500 dollars per person, but there are also some national reserves which run a great safari service for a very nominal fee. Mountain zebra national park in South Africa is one of the least touristy national parks which offer the tourists a good night safari service.
