You’ve perhaps heard the famous names of the great African National Parks – The Serengeti, the Masai Mara, Tsavo and Kruger. Game viewing in these vast regions is one of the most exciting experiences any traveller can have, especially if you are in the right place at the right time to witness the Great Migration as enormous herds look for fresh grazing.
Perhaps what you didn’t realise is the sheer variety of safari tours and game lodges on offer.
Kenya – Safari’s tend to be in 4×4’s, staying in a different camp each night. Or you could travel around in more comfort and style you could choose an Air Safari flying in a light aircraft between the camps. Safari’s can be anything from 3 nights to two weeks.
Tanzania – Home of the enormous Serengeti and the starting point for the Great Migration. Most safaris also involve staying in a different location each night.
