Africa is an awesome location if you are looking for raw wildlife exploration. Tanzania and Kenya, Tanzania and Kenya are home to two of Africa’s most iconic (and joined) game parks, the Serengeti and Masai Mara. There is nothing that passes these parks in vastness, game concentrations and, of course, if you time it right, the legendary Great Migration. Speak to one of our ABS consultants to find out when’s the best time to try and catch it. The most amazing thing about a Tanzania/Kenya safari is that they generally also include other wonderful, lesser-known parks, like Tarangire and Amboseli, with its views of Kilimanjaro. Try and fit in a day or two on the beautiful shores of Lake Victoria.
The ‘daddy’ of private game reserves in the Kruger National Park, South Africa, the 63,000 hectare Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve is, with good reason, the number one safari destination in South Africa. The game and wildlife watching is spectacular and is known to offer sights around every turn, with incredible close encounters possible with an array of animals, particularly the safari ‘Big 5’. It’s also one of the best locations in the world to catch a sight of the normally-elusive leopard, which are so relaxed you often sight these stunning animals mere metres from your vehicle!
Sabi Sands boasts arguably the best luxury accommodation in southern Africa; it is the destination of choice for those that demand the very best service, guiding and culinary standards alongside the very best of the African bush. Here you’ll be able to luxuriate, enjoying every mod-con as the sun sets over the reserve. Read more on african safari vacation.
Bwindi Gorilla Trekking Rwanda and Uganda, African Adventures
Uganda is perfect for treks and primate-spotting. This five-day Africa Adventure trip would suit the time-pressed traveler searching for an affordable (and less commercial) adventure – but there’s also opportunity for extension and upgrade along the way. This tour kicks off in the Rwandan capital city of Kigali with an informative tour of the Kigali Genocide Museum, after which travelers will be driven north, across the border to Uganda’s Bwindi forest and national park, with stop-offs for scenic photographs along the way. The national park is located in stunning southwestern Uganda and the second day of the tour is jam-packed with gorilla tracking through the verdant Bwindi jungle. The next day participants get the chance to take a scenic drive to Queen Elizabeth National Park via the Ishasha sector for sightings of lions, elephants, topi and antelope before embarking on a gorgeous two hour boat cruise along the Kazinga channel to spot hippos, buffaloes, crocodiles and more.
Located in the extreme southwest of the country on the border with Tanzania, Maasai Mara National Reserve is Kenya’s quintessential safari destination. Covering over 580 square miles/1,500 square kilometers, it’s home to the Big Five and is famous for its thriving big cat populations. In particular, the reserve is known as one of the best places to see lions in their natural environment. Special Maasai Mara experiences include visits to traditional Maasai villages and the annual Great Migration. Between July and October, the migration sees approximately two million wildebeest, zebra and other antelope cross from Tanzania to Kenya across the mighty Mara River.
