Your best African safari holidays ever
What makes African safari holidays unique?
A safari is the feeling you get when hearing your first lion roar echoing across the plains. It’s coming across animals you’ve never set eyes on before, and wildlife you’ve always wanted to see. An African safari holiday is something that transforms the way you think about the world. Once you've experienced it, you feel like you have a special bond with Africa’s untamed, wide-open spaces.
What are the best destinations in Africa for safari holidays?
East Africa destinations like Kenya and Tanzania invite you for an iconic safari. It's the postcard depiction of Africa, with its signature glowing red sunsets and flat-topped acacia trees. It's also wildly famous for being host to the Great Migration. Southern Africa promises luxury Big 5 safaris in reserves in South Africa and Zimbabwe, and they're very easy to combine with other popular African countries.
When it comes to choosing the best destination in Africa for your safari, it can be overwhelming. They all have so much to offer, so how can you possibly choose? Well, don't you worry about that! Here's what you can look forward to at some of the top African safari holiday destinations.
Tanzania Safari Holidays
Tanzania safari holidays offer adventurous activities like hot air balloon safaris over the vast savannah. Located in East Africa, Tanzania is probably best known for its Great Migration safaris. This is an annual animal migration when over 1.5 million wildebeest, zebra and gazelle traverse the plains in the ultimate survival game, encountering many obstacles and hungry predators along the way.
Kenya Safari Holidays
Kenya safari holidays are similar to Tanzania but also very different! Yes, they are both located in East Africa. But we also recommend you see both as they're home to their own unique attractions. Kenya is also the setting for part of the Great Migration and has plenty of exciting game reserves.
How much does an African safari holiday cost?
How much an African safari holiday costs depends on many factors, including but not limited to which destinations, accommodation options, transport, activities and inclusions you opt for. There are also add-ons like a private guide and charter flights to make your African safari holiday that much more luxurious. As a rough estimate, prices generally range between $250 and $2500 per person per night.
