A safari is an overland travel that takes place in East or Southern Africa to hunt or view wild animals. The so-called Big Five African game species ” lionleopardrhinoceroselephant, and Cape buffalo ” are extremely popular safari animals, both for nature watching and big-game hunting.

William Cornwallis Harris undertook an expedition in 1836 solely for the purpose of observing and recording fauna and sceneries. Harris pioneered the safari way of travel, beginning with a gentle rise at early light, an active day of walking, an afternoon relaxation, and a formal supper and story-telling over beverages and cigarettes in the evening. The safari’s traditional hunting feature is claimed to have originated in the early 17th century in the Alentejo district of Évora, when locals banded together to kill wild boar and regain land for cultivation.

Newland & Tarlton Ltd (established 1904) were among the first to provide luxury tented safaris.

Both Jules Verne’s first novel Five Weeks in a Balloon and H. Rider Haggard’s first novel King Solomon’s Mines, both published in 1885, feature travels of English adventurers on safari and were big sellers at the time. These two works spawned a genre of safari adventure literature and movies.

Ernest Hemingway published multiple works on African safaris, both fiction and nonfiction. Hemingway’s short works “The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber” and “The Snows of Kilimanjaro” are set on African safaris and were inspired by his own safari experience. Green Hills of Africa and True at First Light, two of his works, are set on African safaris.


From Trader Horn (1931) forward, sound films about the safari gave endless hours of cinematic delight. The safari was featured in a number of adventure films, including Tarzan, Jungle Jim, and Bomba the Jungle Boy, all the way up to Cornel Wilde’s role as a white hunter in The Naked Prey (1965). The Bob Hope comedy Road to Zanzibar and Call Me Bwana mocked the safari film genre. In Africa Addio, a 15-minute helicopter safari was showcased, in which passengers were armed and transported from their hotel to land in front of an unfortunate and perplexed elephant. Karen Blixen and legendary hunter Denys Finch Hatton journey out of Africa, with Denys reluctant to give up his home comforts of exquisite china and crystal, as well as listening to Mozart records on the gramophone while on safari.

The safari-style was inspired by British officers and the coats they wore throughout their African missions. Khaki clothes, belted bush coats, pith helmets or slouch hats, and animal skin motifs are all part of the concept or style associated with the phrase. Between 1870 and 1950, the pith helmet was adopted as apparel by the British soldiers in the tropics. Safari jackets are “crisp drill cotton with pockets, buttons, epaulets, and belt,” according to Condé Nast, and are an element of Kenyan colonial style.

During his post-presidential tour to Africa in 1909″1910, Theodore Roosevelt was “outfitted” in safari style by his friend Lord Cranworth. Newland & Tarlton, owned by Lord Cranworth, is a premium safari outfitter that creates safari-style clothes. Roosevelt was also furnished by Willis & Geiger in 1908, according to various sources. Hemingway, like Roosevelt on safari, selected Holland & Holland or Westley Richards guns in the British manner. Grace Kelly and Johnny Weissmuller, among others, donned safari suits in Hollywood. Ernest Hemingway donned safari-style coats that reflected a sense of adventure that was also reflected in Hollywood. The safari jacket, according to Conde Nast, is still fashionable today.
