When it comes about most exciting trips one can undertake, African safari tours are without any doubt in top of preferences with travelers whom like to see exotic wildlife and explore some of the last unspoiled territories on the planet. Indeed, Africa offers lots of wonderful things and often it doesn't become the recognition it deserves on the international travel scene. African safaris are very different in both variety and length, as well as in price and visited landmarks. Some of the leading countries offering very rewarding African safari tour packages are Tanzania and Kenya in East Africa, and Namibia and South Africa in the southern part of the continent. Other states where travelers will benefit from amazing safari experiences are Uganda, Botswana, Zambia, Mozambique, and several others. Because of the huge territories and great variety of wildlife parks, there are available both safari tours taking several days and including in itinerary just one or two game reserves, but also epic journeys lasting several weeks and following a route that crosses more African countries, with visits to best parks hosting wildlife species. Also, the prices vary very much – there are available both cheap tour packages that cost several hundreds dollar and African safaris valued at couple thousands dollar that include accommodations at luxury safari lodges and unlimited wildlife watching. Of course, between extremes tourists will find a huge number of African safari tours, so everyone has chance to find a suitable package and experience a journey of lifetime.
Some of the most rewarding and demanded African safaris are offered by Kenya and Tanzania, two neighboring countries set in East Africa and hosting two of the most renowned game reserves on earth: Serengeti National Park in Tanzania and Masai Mara Game Reserve in Kenya. Serengeti and the smaller Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area are home to millions of herbivores like giraffe, elephant, African buffalo, wildebeest, various species of gazelles, zebra and many others. Obviously, close to the huge herds composed of these species, travelers will spot during safari tours many predatory species from which the most common are lion, cheetah, leopard and hyena. Thousands of bird species complete the fantastic ecosystem to found in African savannah, so this part of the continent is a true heaven for bird watching as well. Continuing to west in Kenya, Masai Mara houses similar wildlife species since there takes place the largest migration on the planet along which about two millions of wildebeest and zebras cross the Masai and Mara rivers on their way to find meadows with fresh grass. The migration takes place twice a year, so if you're planning a safari to Africa would be a great idea to book the trip in the interval when millions of animals roaming free on the never ending plains dotted with acacia trees.
Namibia and and especially South Africa benefit from a similar popularity like the before mentioned countries. South African safaris are particularly demanded by western travelers for the amazing game reserves like Kruger National Park, but also because of the great tourist infrastructure and modern cities like Cape Town and Johannesburg, which are great to enjoy a short city break before or after safari tour. Namibia is less known in comparison with its eastern neighbor, but it slowly becomes a favorite safari destination because of the amazing wildlife watching in desert areas – the country houses two of the largest deserts in the world, Namib Desert with the famous Skeleton Coast and Kalahari.
