Guidebooks are always a good bet for the traveller. If they already have a guidebook for their upcoming trip, you might try some fiction that takes place in the country they are visiting. For history buffs, there are lots of great books available on African history.
A microloan is a great way to honor someone and to make a difference at the same time. To support education in Africa, you could consider a donation to our partner organization AfricAid. Alternatively, you can help ‘end the book famine’ in Africa with a donation to Books for Africa. Another way to change a life would be to give the gift of a camel (or a ‘share’ of a camel) to a Maasai family in Tanzania through the Heifer organization.
A new camera is always a welcome surprise for any traveller. We especially like the Panasonic DMC-FZ35 for its 18x optical zoom. It also does a nice job of basic video and has a very reasonable price tag. For the more serious photographer, we have a camera recommendations blog you can check out for some great ideas on what to bring with you on safari.
And finally…a safari. No doubt about it, this would be the ‘ultimate’ gift, and something that would be remembered for a lifetime. You know you can call us so we can work together to build the perfect trip for that special someone.
