A very important sense that really aids the enjoyment of the safari experience and is the sense of smell. We questioned a number of seasoned safari goers and these were their favourite smells of the African bush. If you have been lucky enough to go on a safari in Africa I am sure catching a whiff of any of the below is bound to bring back memories and reignite a desire to return.
Rain after a thunderstorm
A smoky campfire and how it clings to your clothes
Diesel from the vehicles
Gin and tonic with lemon
Humidity and wet vegetation
A midden (A midden is a communal latrine, where numerous impala will collectively deposit their dung. Rhino and wildebeest also use middens)
