21 of 31 - SOLSC 2022

Step by step guide to a safari...

  • Wake up earlier than you would prefer, especially for a vacation day.
  • Ensure you have all the gear you need including layers and sun protection.
  • Quickly eat something.
  • Arrive at the rendezvous point on time.
  • Load into the vehicle.
  • Notice the anticipation in the air with everyone hoping to see whatever is highest on the list of animals for that outing.
  • Wonder how long it will take until you might have your first viewing opportunity.
  • Bump along on the journey.
  • The vehicle slows and the excitement rises.
  • Guides/drivers/spotters exchange hand signals.
  • The group attempts to interpret hand signals being exchanged.
  • Heads swivel right and left.
  • Pointing happens while guests attempt to keep their tones hushed.
  • Cameras poise.
  • Jump in the water.
  • Wait.
  • Watch in wonder as the majestic manta ray swims past.
  • Repeat the last two steps with a grin at your successful observation of the targeted animal in the wild.
