The constantly shifting status of Africa as a whole should not deter you from some of the most enriching and awe-inspiring experiences of your life which are unique to Africa. Though you are likely to meet the African wildlife just about anywhere in your travels, here are some of the best destinations for African Safari.
Tanzania has long been known for its great Safaris, The beautifully vast open plain of Serengeti is known for having the largest concentration of wildlife in the world. The variety and beauty of the annual wildlife migration is really something to behold (this is where the Lion King is based on!) If this was not enough opportunity for you to see the 'big five', Tanzania is also home to the Ngorongoro Crater, a paradise on earth and Lake Manyara and Arusha National Parks, all home to rich eco-systems and teeming with beautiful wildlife. If you like Mountain Climbing, Africa's highest peak, Mt Kilimanjaro also resides in Tanzania.
Made famous by books such as 'I dreamed of Africa' and 'Out of Africa,' Kenya is a truly inspirational country to visit. Home of the spectacular Rift Valley where one can take in some of Africa's best wildlife viewing. The Samburo National Reserve which rests on the banks of the Uaaso Nyiro River is a popular resting place for wildlife with plenty of water and shade; you are bound to spot some great game. Here you also get the chance to see Kenya's tribal cultures and how they live. The 75m Thompson Falls is another popular destination as well as Lake Nakuru, home to the rare black and white rhinos - a must for any safari. This country beats with a heart a soul.
One of Africa's richest countries due to the Diamond Trade and well known for the diversity of its wildlife and its well preserved wildlife parks, Botswana boasts the remarkable and intricate Okavango Delta, the largest in the world. This delta carries the flood waters from the Okavango River and a traditional mokoro ride allows you to take in the nature surrounding you in unspool silence. The vast and tranquil Makgadikgadi Pans offers an unforgettable experience and the Moremi and Chobe national parks are rich with game of all varieties.
