Choosing the wildlife safari which is best for your trip to Africa depends enormously on you – what you want to see, how you like to travel and what kind of experiences you want.

We hope that the wildlife safaris below will offer inspiration. We’ve tried to highlight the strengths of the various countries so click below for our recommendations on some safaris for great wildlife experiences. 

For first-time visitors, Kenya and Tanzania are a good option – each is a great Big Five destination, boasting lion, leopard, rhino, elephant, and buffalo. Both countries offer some of the most fascinating wildlife experiences anywhere – and if you are travelling in early June, you will be fortunate enough to witness the annual migrations across the Serengeti and the Maasai Mara. This is when game in their thousands move across the plains, searching for new grazing land, in a journey that attracts hundreds of predators.

In addition to all the wildlife, Kenya has some wonderful beaches, providing ideal bush-and-beach combinations! Tanzania offers two main safari circuits. These are the northern routes and the southern parks. The north routes focus on the remarkable natural amphitheatre of Ngorongoro Crater and the wildlife-rich Serengeti National Park. In contrast, the southern parks are usually less busy and require flights into the region. There are fewer crowds in the south of parks, which is always a welcome feature!
