Q: What is a Vegan Africa safari or as some people call it a plant based Africa safari?
A: Vegan travelers on a Africa safari want to experience the magnificence of the Africa wildlife and have their eating preferences catered for.The word safari means journey in Swahili, it implies a range of actvities.Whether it be the early wake call sometimes to the sound of the African drum,snacks while on Safari game drives,lunch,the evening meal possibly with vegan wine,its all available on a custom designed Vegan Africa Safari.

I have been on Safari in South Africa, Botswana, Kenya, Zambia, Zimbabwe long before this current upsurge in popularity in plant based foods due to leading a vegetarian lifestyle for over 40 years,and have had no problem obtaining the food I pre order.
Of course the more remote you get its possible the more simple the choices become,beans and rice here we come.However the location,the magical Africa Safari bush more than make up for any gourmet meals missed and when you are out you can eat it up again.This only applies to very remote locations otherwise the quality goes right up at most if not all Africa safari lodges and or camps.
Not bad for a moderate vegan safari breakfast.
In fact most Africa safari lodges as part of the reservation experience ask about meal preferences.
As we custom design Africa safari you can be ensured that your Vegan African Safari will not only be catered for both in the lodge/camp meals but also for the morning/after game drives snacks etc.
If you are new to a Africa safari we have a information page about a Africa safari that will answers many questions about a typical day activities on safari, safari clothing,etc about your Vegan Africa Safari. About Africa Safari
There are many choices for a Vegan Africa Safari ie South Africa,Botswana, Kenya,Tanzania, Zambia etc as well combining any of these locations with a Uganda Gorilla Safari.Your local guide for this Gorilla Safari is a long time vegetarian as well.
The other culinary experience that present itself in some Africa safari lodges is to try local vegan based meal options.
Beans, carrots, papadum, potatoes, rice, minced spicy vegetable salad, and kale-stuffed ugali.
Ugali is a dish of maize flour (or a blend with millet or sorghum) cooked with water to a dough-like consistency. It is served in balls, from ping pong ball to fist size or large scoops.
It is the most common staple starch featured in the local cuisines of the African Great Lakes region and Southern Africa.
Think of it as polenta, without the yellow or the salt. The maize flour used in ugali is from white corn. It is traditionally not salted or seasoned, but rather served with spicy sauces to add the contrast to the plain grains.
While most Africa Safari lodges/camps offer a plant based Africa Safari option here are a couple of Africa Safari camps/lodges/places to help stir the creativity.
