It can be hard to feel connected to the natural world when you live in a modern city or town. Of course, there will be green spaces, with trees and grass, but it won’t be the same as truly chasing your wild side. When you’re on vacation, you have an excellent chance to enjoy some of the natural world, but you have to figure out the best way to do it. To help you out with this, this post will be exploring four of the best safari locations you have available, enabling you to start off the planning.
Okavango Delta: Cutting through the heart of Botswana and the Kalahari desert, the Okavango Delta River is a great starting point for your wild adventure. During the area’s flooding season, islands are created which confine a lot of the wildlife, making it incredibly easy for you to see everything you want to on your Okavango Delta safari. Being on a river, you have loads of different ways to explore, from the back of a boat to the sky in a helicopter.
Serengeti National Park: Everyone has heard of the Serengeti National Park before. In the North of Tanzania, this park is well known for the large numbers of zebra and antelope which call it home. Where you find herbivores, you often find predators, and this has left this place filled with a wide variety of big cats and dogs. Being so large, a lot of people find that the Serengeti feels much less crowded than other examples of Safari parks. There are loads of companies out there with packages to get yourself on your way.
Hwange National Park: If elephants are what you’re after, you won’t find much better than the Hwange national park. In the West of Zimbabwe, this area provides enough space, food, and water for some of the largest of the safari creatures. Along with Elephants, you will also find buffalo, lions, and loads of other incredible animals in Hwange. This is another large option, giving you the chance to embrace your exploration.
Bwindi Impenetrable National Park: Finally, as the last option on this list, it’s time to head to Uganda, to explore the Bwindi forest. Being home to mountain gorillas, chimpanzees, and baboons, this is a great place to get in touch with your fellow primates. There are few places on Earth which give you the chance to see a Gorilla in the wild. Along with the large mammals, Bwindi is also home to loads of bright and colorful birds. This a great place for both newcomers and veterans to safaris alike, giving you an easy way to see a lot of wildlife.
Hopefully, with all of this in mind, it should be a lot easier to start working on a safari for yourself. This sort of vacation can be incredibly relaxing, giving you the chance to explore a world which is far away from what you find in a city. Of course, though, you’ll have to come home at some point, and this will be time to start planning the next one.
