Africa has still a wilderness as nowhere else in the world. Huge parks where lions, giraffes and elephants live together are too be discovered on a safari trip.

  • 1. Kenya
    Kenya, Africa

    Kenya is the premier place for safaris with famous reserves such as Masai Mara. To be watched in particular: the migrations taking place between August and November each year.

  • 2. Tanzania
    Tanzania, Africa

    The Seregenti National Park and the Ngorongoro crater are amazing reserves to enjoy wildlife, in particular during the annual migration. On top of safaris, hikers can enjoy climbing Mount Kilimandjaro and sunbathers will love spending a few days in Zanzibar (island just off the coast of Tanzania).

  • 3. Botswana
    Botswana, Africa

    My next safari destination is for sure the blue waters of the Okavango Delta and its elephants.

  • 4. South Africa
    South Africa, Africa

    Kruger National Park is world famous for viewing the "big five" but South Africa also offers alternate gems such as Hluhluwe-Umfolozi game reserve, the Drakensberg mountains or the Kalahari desert. In addition, Cape Town is a place to see on a trip to South Africa.

  • 5. Zimbabwe
    Zimbabwe, Africa

    Great Destination for safaris but also to enjoy impressive Victoria Falls.

  • 6. Namibia
    Namibia, Africa

    Less known than other Southern African countries, Namibia offers stunning views in the Namib desert as well as wildlife in reserves such as Etosha National Park.

  • 7. Zambia
    Namibia, Africa

    Victoria Falls, wildlife viewing in South Luangwa National Park or canoe exploration on the Zambezi river are some of the treasures that Zambia has to offer.

  • 8. Malawi
    Malawi, Africa

    The Destination is dominated by the tranquil waters of Lake Malawi, a UNESCO World Heritage Site long of more than 300 miles. Malawi also has several national parks to enjoy wildlife.

  • 9. Uganda
    Uganda, Africa

    The forests of the 'Pearl of Africa' are the best spots to wait for long hours to see gorillas. Splendid and wild Ssese islands on Lake Victoria are worth seeing as well.

  • 10. Rwanda
    Rwanda, Africa

    Rwanda is an alternate Destination to watch gorillas.
