Ever wanted to chase the big 5 ( lions, elephants, buffaloes, leopards, and rhinoceros ) across the plains of Africa and other countries?. If you want to look for giraffes, hippos, lions and a whole host of mammals, birds and reptiles, then a safari is for you.

Popular safari experiences in countries like Kenya, South Africa, and Namibia allow you to witness these majestic creatures in their natural habitats up close. Set off in the early morning and evenings in a 4x4 vehicle with your own ranger to try to catch the animals when they are most active. Count the animals that you spot and cross them off your list as you spend the time driving to catch a glimpse.

It’s not just daytime drives, night drives use spotlights to observe nocturnal animals like hyenas, leopards, owls, and other creatures that are active after dark. This offers a completely different atmosphere and the chance to see animals that are rarely seen during the day.

If you really want to see the best, then the wildebeest migration, often referred to as the Great Migration, is one of the most spectacular wildlife events in the world. It involves the annual movement of millions of wildebeest, along with large numbers of zebras and gazelles, across the Serengeti-Mara ecosystem in East Africa. The migration takes place between Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park and Kenya’s Maasai Mara National Reserve. It is something not to be missed.

Safari’s now offer a wide range of accommodation from basic to the out right glam, so there is something for everyone and every age and budget. Think luxury lodges, tents and smaller more rustic campsites.

If you want a multi center holiday combining a safari and the beach then Africa is one of the best countries to do this. With islands like Tanzania, Mauritius and Cape town it has something for everyone. Take a look at my multi destination blog for more ideas. Multi center holiday ideas
