  • Endangered Species Day is a chance to raise awareness about the sad plight of some of the wonderful animals you can spot whilst on an African safari, such as elephants, giraffes, cheetahs, rhinos and the Grevys zebras, just to name a few. There may be various reasons like loss of habitat, loss of its population, etc. that increases the risk of a particular species to become endangered or extinct.

    This year is the 15th anniversary and everyone can be a part of this movement and contribute to the protection of endangered species.

    Due to the recent downturn in tourism as a result of  the global pandemic, Africa’s safari camps and lodges, many of which play a key role in protecting some of the world’s most endangered species, have been temporarily closed.

    We urge you to re-schedule any trips you may have booked to a later date or book a trip for 2021 to help support wildlife tourism.

    At Somak Holidays, we ensure we work with responsible service providers to facilitate our itineraries, so that you can observe these animals in a manner which allows each to behave in their natural wild way without any threat or disturbance.
    We can all play a part to ensure the wildlife in Africa continues to be protected, and by going on a safari holiday later this year or next year you will be helping, as the income generated from safari tourism helps to pay for the costs of conservation efforts.
