Here’s a List of some of our Best African Safari Destinations
These African safari destinations are exhilarating in their beauty and diversity.
Kruger National Park, South Africa
Spanning across more than 19,633 square kilometers, the Kruger national park is the largest game reserve on the African continent.
The park is home to a prolific number of wildlife including over 12,000 elephants, 2,000 leopards, 27,000 buffalos, and almost 2,800 lions.
It is also home to 147 other mammal species, over 517 bird species, and a unique selection of luxury and budget safari lodges.
Etosha National Park, Namibia
The Etosha national park is vast, unique, and undeniably beautiful. It is best known for its distinctive and dramatic salt pan which is so huge that it can be seen from space!
It is also remarkable for its generous wildlife spotting opportunities, the park housing over 114 mammal species, 110 reptile species, and an astounding 340 bird species.
Amboseli National Park, Kenya
Home to over 1,600 individual elephants. A UNESCO World Heritage Site. And at 8,000 square kilometers, one of the largest national parks in Africa.
Should we go on? Yes? Your wish is our command. The Amboseli is also backgrounded by Mount Kilimanjaro and is home to all of the Big Five. It also hosts five different habitats ranging from woodlands, grasslands, and wetlands.
Chobe National Park, Botswana
With a head count of over 50,000 individual elephants, Chobe hosts the largest elephant population on the African continent. But wait, there’s more. The park is also famed for its huge buffalo and lion population as well as for hosting over 450 bird species.
Hold your horses, sir (or ma’am) we’re not done yet. Also fascinating is the park’s Chobe River, remarkable for its deep blue waters which beautifully wind past dense forests, sandy terrains, and lush floodplains.
Victoria Falls, Zambia and Zimbabwe
Location: On the Zambezi River at the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe
One of the seven wonders of the world and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Victoria Falls might as well be the best African safari destination.
It is also the world’s largest waterfall with a cascade of almost 500 million liters per minute! Is your mind blown yet?
Perhaps even more fascinating is that the falls are home to impressive amounts of wild animals including the Big Five, giraffe, zebra, waterbucks, and the sable antelope.
Masai Mara, Kenya
It’s hard (almost impossible) to leave out the Masai Mara when talking about the best safari destinations in Africa and rightly so. For one, the park is home to over 90 different mammal species including the Big Five. It also houses an astounding amount of Big Cats which explains why BBC’s Big Cat Diary is filmed here.
Here is where it gets better.
The park hosts the single largest wildlife migration on the planet- the Great Wildebeest Migration- a sensation known to attract not less than 300,000 visitors per year. If that doesn’t scream premier safari tour destination we don’t know what does.
Lake Nakuru, Kenya
Lake Nakuru is breathtaking, wild, and unique. It is, in simple terms, the benchmark of what a perfect safari destination should be.
The park has an astonishing 400-plus bird species as well as a healthy population of both Black and White Rhinos. Waterbucks also inhabit the region as well as countless crocodiles, giraffes, zebras, and dik-dik.
But perhaps what makes Lake Nakuru so special is its impressive population of flamingos which, when rested on the lake’s waters, give it a unique pinkish hue.
Moremi Game Reserve, Botswana
Certainly one of the best destinations for safari tours in Africa, the Moremi is a park in a league of its own. The park is all about dramatic landscapes, from its lagoons to its mopane forests, shallow flood pans, grasslands, and savannahs.
It’s also all about diverse wildlife varieties, the park hosting all of the Big Five, over 160 mammal species, 450 bird species, 35 amphibian species, 155 reptile species, and over 1500 plant species.
Boy will the botanists have a field day in this one!

We have yet another UNESCO World Heritage Site on the list! And it’s not just another destination, it is the world’s largest inland delta!
Safari holidays to the Okavango Delta promise sightings of more than 480 bird species and 130 mammal species including the Big Five. It is also a uniquely beautiful destination for jeep tours, walking safaris, and boat tours.
Cape Town, South Africa
The mother city, the tavern of the seas, or the legislative capital of South Africa; call it whatever you may but one thing’s for certain, Cape Town is an unmatched destination for safari holidays.
The city is home to countless magnificent tourist attractions from the Table Mountains to the Boulders Beach, V&A Waterfront, Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, the Clifton and Camps Bay Beaches, and the Iziko Museums.

Frequently Asked Questions
We answer some of your most frequently asked questions about safaris and safari holidays in Africa.
How Many Days Would Be Enough for Safari Holidays in Africa?
Although two weeks is generally the recommended time, it really all comes down to your budget and the destinations you want to visit. Some destinations, like the Serengeti and Kruger national parks, are vast, so they call for a lot more exploration time. Also, budget travellers would want to spend lesser time than those on a luxury safari.
Which are the Best Destinations for First Time Solo Travellers to Africa?
For your first safari holiday in Africa, we’d recommend you go to the more infrastructurally developed countries like South Africa and Kenya. When you safari in a country with good road and network connections, lots of street lights, and accommodation options, you’ll feel safer and more comfortable traveling solo.
Botswana is yet another great option as it offers a variety of destination options offering that unique, off-the-grid experience.
