African Safari Destination Tips For Your Next Adventure

Choice is never an issue when considering an African Safari with prospective safari seekers presented with any number of destinations, each offering it’s own unique twist on adventure and education. Let’s face it, an African Safari shouldn’t just be a sight-seeing tour, it should also be an educational experience, one which should leave a lasting impression and a lifetime of memories.

Here’s a shortlist of possible destinations:

South Africa

Despite South Africa’s turbulent past, it offers a combination of both modern and historic destinations and is home to Kruger National Park,one of the world’s first wildlife conservation parks. South African also has a lot to offer in the way of marine biology and when booking a tour, be sure to include these areas as part of your itinerary. Depending on the level of comfort and length, tours can range at a cost of a few hundred dollars up to $10,000.


Tanzania is a wildlife haven and is home to two of the world’s most famous landmarks, Serengeti National Park and Mount Kilimanjaro. However, it’s Tanzania’s lesser known parks that make it an African Safari dream destination. Ngorongoro, Lake Manyara and Tarangire aren’t as famous as the Serengeti but each is a must see when travelling through this fauna and flora rich country.


An African Safari in Kenya means getting close and personal with some of the most recognisable wildlife in the world. Home to the famous Masai Mara National Park, lions, elephants, rhinos and a myriad of other species are prevalent and spotted in Masai Mara making it a photo rich environment. Surrounding game reserves such as Samburu and Amboselli frank Kenya’s standing as an African safari haven. Tours come in all shapes and sizes ranging from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars.


Botswana has too many highlights to mention in this short summary but for those with a bit of an adventurous spirit and a love of dangerous game, then it’s the place to go. Moremi Game reserve in the eastern Okavango Delta is a must visit for lovers of big cats such as lions, cheetahs and leopards. Throw in the Central Kalahari and Chobe National Parks and Botswana enscapulates what Africa, in a traditional sense, is all about. A variety of tours are available, again, ranging from several hundred to several thousand dollars but in all honesty, to get a greater appreciation of Botswana, then an extended stay should seriously be considered.

These are just four African Safari destinations and probably the best known. If you are considering just one visit to this magnificent continent then make it a worthwhile one time wise. Tours don’t just concentrate in one country. For extended stays, consider encompassing at least the quartet of destinations we’ve covered in this article.
