Safari baby names for boys and girls

Written by Mary Fetzer   

Oh, how I'd love to go on safari and experience the vistas, the wildlife and the wonder of it all. Until I'm able to make my way across the ocean to Africa, I'll get my safari fix via books, television and the internet. And, in my spare time, I'll put together fun lists like this one: Safari Baby Names for Boys and Girls.

The Great Safaris

The most prominent safaris bear exotic names and are found in faraway places. Imagine naming your little one "Okavango Delta," which is located in Botswana's Kalahari Desert. Or, perhaps, one of the following would pair better with your last name:

  • Bwindi (Uganda)
  • Chobe (Botswana)
  • Etosha (Namibia)
  • Kruger (South Africa)
  • Masai Mara (Kenya)
  • Serengeti (Tanzania)
  • Tsavo (Kenya)

The Wildlife

There is no question that safaris are beautiful to behold, but most visitors are there for one reason only: to check out the wildlife. The animals, fish and reptiles are truly spectacular to those of us whose experience culminates with housebreaking the dog. Since they have a unisex appeal to them, these potential names are arranged by alphabet rather than gender. Would you dare bestow one on your offspring?
