In addition to the regular day and night game drives where you experience the varied wildlife, there are walking safaris, horse safaris, and trekking for gorillas for the more adventurous at heart. The wildlife can vary from The Big 5 (Elephant, Lion, Leopard, Rhinoceros and Buffalo) to the migration of the wildebeest, zebra and many migratory birds. You can climb Mount Kilimanjaro, visit Victoria Falls, scuba dive or snorkel off the coasts of Kenya, Tanzania, Mozambique and South Africa, go kayaking on the Zambezi River, or just take a break and play golf. You can visit local schools, visit indigenous tribes, or travel to Cape Town and the near by South African Vineyards. Choices have to be made based upon your unique taste and preferences.

Therefore you should start planning a safari at least 6 – 12 months in advance to give you time to review what is available and what you would like to do. And it should be fun. Don’t worry about changing your mind as you learn more. I will patiently work with you to get things right and will share the experience with you. So contact me and let’s get started.

    We had so much fun planning our safari with Mira! And we ended up with the trip of a lifetime! I thought it would be overwhelming, but you’re right, it was FUN!

    It was a pleasure to plan our safari with Mira. It was the trip of a lifetime especially the big five. It was one of my absolute favorite trips and was an experience of a lifetime (fun). I also thought it would be a huge hassle with air fair and luggage but it was actually very easy thanks to Mira!!!!!!


African Safaris and Charitable Giving (Safari Samaritan) is a "for profit" company. All the money we make is from the sale of travel insurance. We make no income on the sale of solar powered lamps, nor do we receive any fees from the manufacturer or distributer of the lamps.

Because we are "for profit", none of the items we suggest you donate while on safari should be considered a tax deductible item, including the solar powered lamps. However, because we are "for Profit”, and make all our money from travel insurance, you can be sure that 100% of the money you donate for solar powered lamps goes to the purchase of the lamps.
