Top African Destinations

The top African Safari destinations include Botswana, South Africa, Namibia, Mozambique, Victoria falls, Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda.Most of these safari destinations are self driven African safari. A self driven African safari can provide the traveller with loads of freedom, privacy and choices, although it is always best to have a well-planned route map, with lodging or accommodation booked and paid before you leave for safari.

Self driving is a very cost effective & an exciting alternative solution for travellers to Africa, providing them with a huge sense of adventure & fun. It is well suited in those countries which have good infrastructure and road network. South Africa is a good option, where sedan vehicles running there are more than appropriate, followed by Namibia & Botswana.

However, Namibia is very much known for the Namib Desert. Here, one can enjoy the beauty of the desert from a hot air balloon ride and relax in the luxury lodges deep in the heart of the desert. It is one of the most photographic areas in Africa, with Desert landscapes, bush-veldt and National Parks teeming with wildlife. Namibia is a safari destination that one can not afford to miss when one gets an opportunity.

Namibia Safari is one of Africa’s unique safari destinations. Many visitors who have been there to Namibia remark that it is the most beautiful place on earth. The drivers need to be well prepared for routes of Namibia safari as they run into the vast deserted countryside with enough reserve fuel to travel the great distances between filling stations.

It is very necessary to carry extra fuel and oil, spare wheels, tools, a fan belt, spade, axe and torch, as well as a first-aid kit and sufficient water, food and firewood in case of a breakdown.

There are fewer filling stations, so fill up the tank at every opportunity. Filling stations in most of the towns remain open around the clock seven days a week, but in some of the smaller places close for the night and even part of the weekend.

The suitable time for Namibia safari is between May and October (the winter months in Southern Africa), but although hot in summer there is less tourist around and the best time to escape those European winters.

Namibia itself certainly is a land of stark and splendid scenery, often breathtaking in proportions, colour, lighting and variety or habitats.
