The name safari comes from the Swahili for journey or travel, especially in terms of a journey that involves expeditions, observations or watching wildlife. So if you are looking for the trip of a lifetime, then an African safari could be the way to go. With many safari operators out there, as well as countries to visit, there are many options to choose from. So here are just a few of them; will one of them be on your bucket list?
Tanzania is the home to the Serengeti National Park, located in the north of the country. The picturesque setting makes it a popular location for holidaymakers looking for a safari. So it is likely to be a popular spot, so last minute travel could prove a little difficult. However, the area is completely worth it. As the National Park borders with Kenya and it’s Masai Mara park, there are many stunning things that you could witness and encounter. Take, for example, the mass migration of wildebeest that takes each year. Time it right and you could see around two million wildebeest trying to cross the Mara River over into Kenya. Pretty epic!
