Kruger Park, South Africa
The Kruger Park in South Africa is the third largest game reserve in the world, spanning more than 7,000 square miles. It’s also home to all four major safari types: open grassland, woodland, rocky outcrops (where the endangered black rhino lives), and flooded wetlands.

Etosha National Park, Namibia
Namibia’s Etosha National Park is often overlooked in favor of better-known destinations, but it’s worth a visit for the variety of wildlife and stark landscape. You can drive, walk or cycle on self-guided routes that take anywhere from one hour to a day.

Chobe National Park, Botswana
This destination is famous for its big five game. Visitors have the opportunity to see African elephants, black rhinos, lions, leopards, and hippos in the nearby Okavango Delta.

Serengeti National Park, Tanzania
Serengeti National Park was the first National Park in Tanzania. Along with Ngorongoro Crater, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Serengeti hosts some of the most spectacular sights on earth: thundering herds of wildebeest, charging Cape buffalo, elegant giraffes and crocodiles lying in wait for an unsuspecting wildebeest to enter the water.

Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Tanzania
Ngorongoro Conservation Area is a six-thousand-square-kilometer area in Tanzania, close to the Kenyan border. The conservation area was founded in 1961 as a game reserve, but soon after it was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. If you visit this part of the African continent, you should head out to Ngorongoro on your safari because it is one of the best-known safari destinations in all of Africa!

Selous Game Reserve, Tanzania
Selous Game Reserve is one of Africa’s most important conservation areas, with abundant populations of elephants, giraffes, hippos, buffalo, lions, leopards and many more. Selous Game Reserve is also an exceptionally good place to see rhinos – it has the highest population density in the world outside of South Africa.

Okavango Delta, Botswana
The delta is one of the world’s largest inland deltas, its waters too salty to support any fish. Despite this, the Okavango remains teeming with wildlife, including elephants, buffalo, lions, hyenas and giraffes.

Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, Botswana/South Africa
Located in the Kalahari Desert, Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park is one of the largest national parks in the world. Apart from being a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, it is also home to some of the last remaining Kalahari sand dunes. If you are lucky enough to find a waterhole during your safari, you will be greeted by some wild bush-tailed mongooses.

Masai Mara National Reserve, Kenya/Tanzania
The annual spectacle known as the wildebeest migration is one of the planet’s most extraordinary displays of animal behavior. These brave, long-distance travellers cross treacherous terrain in search of grazing areas, millions strong. This epic trek can take them up to 3 months to complete, covering an impressive 7000km. The reason for this great journey is because these huge herds are followed by some of nature’s most fearsome predators – lions, cheetahs and leopards.

Amboseli National Park, Kenya
Amboseli is one of the most well-known parks in all of Kenya. Located about 250 miles southeast of Nairobi, Amboseli is a true jewel in southern Kenya. This park has some excellent game viewing for more adventurous travelers who want to escape the crowds found in other areas like Masai Mara or Serengeti.
