Top 5 Safari Destination

Experience wild Africa on these safari journeys to National Parks

There is something ancient and primordial rooted deep within us. That old connection with nature, back from the time when humans first time saw fire. No matter how many millennia had passed, humankind still feels this bond, and that is why we often seek refuge from daily fuss among high trees and soft grass. One of those ways is to experience wild Africa first handed, on a safari journey. Here are top 5 destinations to visit.

1. Masai Mara National Reserve (Kenya)

Considered by many for the most beautiful safari park, it is on south-western side of Kenya, at the border with Tanzania. Basically, it represents extension of Serengeti National Park, and only imaginary line separates these two. With vast savannahs it gives the opportunity to see and experience wildlife of Africa up close. This is the place where “Great migration” begins, and lasts from July until October. You will be able to see millions of zebras, gazelles and other game galloping through huge open area. Truly breathtaking.

2. Ngorongoro Conservation Area (Tanzania)

On the eastern part of Serengeti National Park, lies this beauty. Its most distinctive feature is long dead volcano, which caldera now represents unique ecosystem. The “Great migration” can be met here from October until March, so you can plan your visit in this period. What is interesting about this area, is that there are no giraffes, due to the fact that tall trees, which are their source of food, are not common here. On the other hand, rich grass is very generous for zebras.

3. Serengeti National Park (Tanzania)

The biggest national park in this country, Serengeti covers the area of more than 15.000 km2, making it quite deserted place, when people are considered. On the other hand, you will find a lot of lions here, with some people considering that the biggest population of these big cats found their habitat here. From March until July, the “Great migration”, spends their time here, in order to find food and water. Also, over four hundred species of birds are settled here, as well as wide array of eagles, vultures and other birds of prey.

4. Bwindi Impenetrable National Park (Uganda)

For those who seek other sights than never-ending grass savannah, Bwindi is just for them. Settled high in the mountains, it is one of the resorts which homes gorillas. It is highly recommended not to try to disturb these peaceful giants, for dominant males, called silverbacks are highly aggressive, if they feel threatened. It is better to take one of those remote wildlife cameras, and to hide them on the route where they pass. These animals are endangered species, and it is the best just to admire them from afar.

5. Chobe National Park (Botswana)

With high diversity of wildlife, Chobe National Park is one of the best for observing various animals ranging from antelopes, wildebeests, giraffes, and the most constant population of elephants in whole Africa. Ground ranges from dry, almost desert-like to savannah, thick forests and swamps, thus the game is such in this park. Cruising down the Chobe River is a magnificent experience, because wide array of animals can be seen, from birds, to not often seen crocodiles and alligators. Many of these species are either endangered or at the brink of extinction, so taking pictures exclusively is allowed.

So, those who are seeking new sights and stunning sunsets are more than welcome to visit any of those National Parks. However, before planning anything, inform which are safe to visit, for Africa is known for its long and bloody history of civil wars. Also, visit your doctor prior departure, in order to receive appropriate vaccines. Such wilderness is no friendly at all.
