The Top 5 Safari Parks in Africa and what makes them special
If you enjoy experiencing the sights and sounds of the African bush you will probably know and love the thrill of being on an African safari. There’s nothing quite like it, because on a safari, deep in the untamed wilderness, who knows what you might find. And although all safari destinations are special in their own unique way, there are a few of them that really stand out. Here’s our pick of the top 5 safari parks in Africa.
5. Chobe National Park, Botswana
In the northwest corner of Botswana, bordering on the Okavango Delta you’ll find this incredibly diverse park. Spanning four different ecosystems, Chobe is home to an array of fascinating animal and bird species, each flourishing in their unique habitat.
4. Etosha National Park, Namibia
This vast park houses the big five and many threatened and endangered species including the black rhinoceros. We love it because not only is it one of the largest national parks in the world, it is also home to some of the tallest elephants in Africa.
3. Okavango Delta, Botswana
The Okavango river flows through the Kalahari desert to create some unique landscapes. Here you’ll see an incredible range of wildlife, as you meander through riverside forests, wetlands, savannas, and the harsh Kalahari desert.
2. Maasai Mara National Reserve, Kenya
Masai Mara is the stage for one of the most spectacular wildlife events in the world, the annual East African Great Migration. If you’re planning to do a safari here, be sure to go around July to October, when more than two million wildebeest, zebra and other antelope migrate from Tanzania to Kenya across the mighty Mara River. It really is one for the bucket list.
1. Kruger National Park, South Africa
The sheer diversity of life in the iconic Kruger National Park is unmatched. With more than 130 species of mammals and 500 bird species, a safari here really is a rich and rewarding experience. It’s a fantastic place for family safaris and it is considered to be the best place in the world to see a leopard.
The Kruger National Park is South Africa's best-maintained safari park and one of the world’s top game reserves and that’s why we think it’s the best Safari Park in Africa.
