Africa has become a popular safari adventure destination. It has ceased to be a grand destination for game hunting like in the colonial African period which would require you to have the Hollywood lifestyle. Today you can easily go on long weekend safari experiences Africa wearing casual clothes which are easily thrown into rucksacks. Kenya and Tanzania remain to be the popular choices for travelers and even the no-go political war zones in the past have already been converted into new safari destinations.

National parks have been regulated and protected while tourism is highly promoted by the government. You can now find exciting safaris of any kind from private helicopters to sailboats, from marine reserves to nighttime game drives through volcanic areas. Here are some of Africa’s best safari destinations:

Etosha National Park (Namibia)

Namibia has been gaining attention as a safari destination due to its rugged terrain, highly evolving landscapes, and its stark natural beauty. You can find in Etosha National Park Africa’s tallest elephants, cheetah, the world’s endangered black rhino, and springs that wild large cats love. You can stay in the camp lodges near the boundaries in areas where safaris are inclusive.

Don’t forget to try the Onguma Treetop Camp which is built among treetops. It can give you panoramic views of the Onguma Game reserve. You will truly feel a unique sense of remoteness and safe isolation.

Masai Mara National Reserve (Kenya)

Masai Mara remains the most visited African safari destination due to its rolling grasslands and acacia trees which is home to the Big Five animals which are the lion, Cape buffalo, leopard, elephant, and rhinoceros.

October is a highlight in Masai Mara because of the migration of these beasts. A stampede of the wildebeest makes the ground roar like thunder. Families may spend the night in Naibor Camp a luxuriously furnishedcamp with all the contemporary comforts that families need yet surrounded by riverine woodland on the Talek River.

Kruger National Park (South Africa)

Kruger National Park is an African classic. It’s one of the oldest and the best maintained parks in Africa. It is known to possess the widest variety of wildlife in the country. It’s also the easiest area to find the Big Five animals because of its unfenced borders around Africa’s best game reserves. You can find sophisticated lodges in the area with luxurious amenities and secluded bush hideaways.

The Sabi Sands Game Reserve which is near the Sabi and Sand rivers is a must-visit. It’s a great romantic getaway with birdsong serenading and the spectacular passage of wildlife. Londolozi is an eco-private game reserve which is family run. It has won awards for food quality, ecotourism, service, as well as accommodation.

These are only a few options you can find. You can certainly find many more.
