When you hear the word safari, it’s not uncommon to think of the African grasslands. Whether you imagine a Land Cruiser driving across the desert in search of wildlife or the distant songs of birds in an African forest, you are not wrong to mentally tie the word safari to traveling across Africa’s landscapes.
In fact, safari is the Kiswahili word for “journey”. Not to be confused with “trip” or “vacation”, a safari is a journey of the soul. It is an experience of interacting with local customs and people by fully submersing yourself into everything the country or place you are visiting has to offer. So, although you may certainly go on safari to Africa, it’s also possible to go on safari to any part of the world.
For example, a safari to India might mean exploring one of the last great gatherings of Nomadic people at the Pushkar Camel fair.
A safari to Australia could lead you to hands on experience working on an outback station – mustering cattle and sheep and exploring ancient aboriginal caves and rock art.
Or in Peru, a safari could entail beginning and ending each day with a fulfilling yoga practice while trekking through the mountains in between.
