Best national parks and game reserves
A famous national park within the Serengeti ecosystem. Every year, this mass of land becomes the realm of the migration of over a million wildebeest and zebras. Lions stand proud and seemingly countless breeds of birds fly over you, making it the ultimate safari destination!
This preserved wilderness is comprised of river woodlands, grassy plains, and acacia trees. The Mara and Talek rivers cut across the rolling hills, and Maasai villages can be found nearby, making this reserve a prime destination for a culture and safari experience.
One of the world’s largest inland river deltas, the Okavango Delta. The grassy plains serve as a habitat to many species. The wetter parts have become home to hippos, elephants, and crocodiles.
From the vast volcanic crater and the mighty roar of the lion, to the hooves of antelopes beating against the ground, this region is epic. Among the things you encounter in this incredible place, Olduvai Gorge fossils that are millions of years old will take your breath away.
Botswana’s first national park, is incredibly biologically diverse. Imagine herds of elephants and the famous Cape buffalo flocking to the river banks? In other parts, antelopes gallop across the plains, while hippos seek homes in the lagoons.
For spectacular wildlife viewing opportunities that will astound and amaze you, head to Etosha. Animals flock in the hundreds to the watering holes as you look on in comfort and seeing them in Etosha National Park is a uniquely worthwhile experience.
Located in northeastern South Africa, Kruger is one of Africa’s largest game reserves. It may be one of the more crowded reserves, but if you dream of seeing lions, rhinos, elephants, and giraffes in their natural habitat, Kruger will make your dreams come true.
Location: South Africa

When is the best time to go on safari?
The best time to go on a safari is during the dry season and around the time of the Great Migration. However, a safari during the wet season might be an attractive alternative as you encounter fewer people and save a lot of money.
How many days should I plan for a safari?
The more days you can plan to spend on your safari the better! While many parks are home to plenty of animals, some species like leopards are incredibly elusive. The longer you give yourself, the better your chances are of spotting creatures in the wild.
What should I pack for a safari?
When packing for a safari consider luggage allowances on small planes and the size of your vehicle. Going on a safari usually means hopping between national parks. Check our complete Safari Packing List to find out what essentials, clothes, gear and medication to pack.
What to wear on a safari?
Wear clothing that will keep you cool while also protecting you from the sun, for example, a wide-brimmed hat is a must! In the evenings, try to cover exposed skin as much as possible to avoid mosquito bites and the risk of malaria. Don't forget to pack some warm layers in case it gets cold during the night.
Which country has the most animals in Africa?
Botswana ranks first in terms of wildlife diversity. Besides the Big Five (lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants, and buffalo) you will be able to spot a wide range of African wildlife. In Tanzania, you get to witness the Great African Migration which is a thrilling must-see event.
What exactly is a safari tour?
A safari tour is a multi-day experience where travellers can observe animals in the wild in Africa, Southern Africa, Asia and even Latin America. Tours can explore multiple parks and countries in a single visit or stay in one place. Travellers can expect to experience views of the Big Five and wildebeest migration, while also enjoying immersive cultural activities and excursions that include horse riding, canoeing and even hot air balloon rides.
