ABOUT FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS FOR AFRICAN SAFARIS
We are offering a service that has a broad social platform to encourage discussion, participation and to raise the level of interest in conservation and eco-tourism for the African Safari tourist.
This part of the website is where we offer you our service!
We are only keen amateurs. We have researched content to the best of our ability, we draw on personal experience, common sense and passion for the subject, and we humbly offer the opportunity for our “Army of Scouts” to provide improved, updated or more accurate knowledge!
“Scouts, please contribute; Travelers please come back to check on updates, and then become Scouts! Tell us about your amazing experiences! When you find some content you like – please share it with two friends.”
Content is provided by many people, from various channels and in both professional and amateur capacities. Topics may vary, and could be emotional, and we respect everyone’s right to an opinion. Please feel free to comment, and engage us and our community, but ensure you also respect everyone and their right to have an opinion. We do not tolerate content that contains profanity, discrimination, personal attacks or anything that is illegal. This includes the use of other people’s copyrighted material without their permission.
Although we monitor comment and social media feedback channels we cannot guarantee that responses are factually accurate, but we endeavour to encourage and foster helpful engagement for the benefit of all visitors to the site and the safari travellers themselves.
We encourage you to become one of our Safari “SCOUTS” so that you are among the first to be notified of new material and to be ale to contribute your own blogs.
The best blogs are going to be enjoyed by everyone and will have an enduring online presence.
Please submit all Blog Posts in word.doc format with attached pictures to:
We encourage you to write 250-500 words of current or newsy content. Tell us a (true) story and write in an easy to read conversational manner. Include a picture!
We welcome your opinion, and your update of current factual circumstances, as you find them “on the ground” – this will greatly benefit other visitors to this site. But please keep these opinions positive! We would not want you to be opening yourself up to libel or slander issues with negative and derogatory remarks. Tell us about the great experiences you have had, and don’t dwell on the not-so-great. The cream will rise to the top!
