Think ‘safari’ and the continent of Africa immediately springs to mind, with good reason too. Our collection of Africa wildlife holidays offers you the chance to see some of the earth’s most majestic creatures, with a range of tailored travel experiences as diverse as the African nations themselves. There’s more to these holidays than seeing the ‘big five’ (lions, African elephant, Cape buffalo, African leopard and rhinoceros); Africa’s wildlife, landscapes and biodiversity is enough to captivate any naturalist for a lifetime.
For a perfect introduction to safari holidays we recommend Kenya or South Africa. Both countries are natural habitats of the ‘big five’ and have well-established wildlife tourism sectors, meaning your travel experience will run smoothly. In Kenya, time your trip with one of the thrilling migratory periods for a sight you’ll never forget. South Africa is great choice for family holidays too, as it is here you’ll find some of the continent’s only malaria-free game parks.
The options for destinations for an Africa wildlife holiday go way beyond these two nations, of course. With its strong commitment to ‘leave no trace’ tourism and position on the Okavango Delta, Botswana offers many rich wildlife experiences. With safaris in Serengeti National Park and flocks on flamingos on Lake Manyara, Tanzania is another destination that should be on every nature lover’s list.
