From Africa to India, from South America to Australia, passing through South East Asia. Here are the top 10 best destinations for a wildlife Safari.
Few experiences manage to excite a traveler, such as the opportunity to contemplate the wealth of fauna and flora that Safari can offer. Do you also dream of leaving to admire lions, elephants, and breathtaking landscapes?
Serengeti National Park (Tanzania)
If in the collective imagination “safari” is synonymous with Africa, to know the oldest protected reserve on the Black Continent, you must fly to Tanzania, where the famous Serengeti National Park is located. It is possible to admire the so-called Great Migration: the spectacular mass migration of millions of zebras, gazelles, wildebeests (and their predators) that move in kilometers in search of new pastures.
Masai Mara (Kenya)
If Serengeti was not enough for you, do not miss the neighboring Masai Mara, which forms a single ecosystem with the park of Tanzania, but in this case in Kenyan territory. Like its twin park, the Masai Mara is the home of the king of the forest, the lion. And other numerous species of the savannah that you can admire on incredible safaris organized on small hot air balloons.
Kruger National Park (South Africa)
The Kruger National Park is the largest game reserve in South Africa. And one of the world’s most renowned for safaris. The park is located in the historical region of Zulu culture. It is one of the ideal places to contemplate the big five of the savannah: lions, leopards, rhinos, buffaloes, and elephants.
Bwindi National Park (Uganda)
Half of the mountain gorillas in the world live in this luxuriant protected reserve of Uganda. A reason that is in itself sufficient to insert the Bwindi National Park among the best African destinations for an exceptional safari, also enriched by the presence of other extraordinary animal species, such as felines, buffaloes, elephants, and baboons.
Sepilok Orang Utan Center (Malaysia)
We change the continent and move to South East Asia. To discover the unique Safari that the Sepilok Orang Utan Center offers. A Malaysian rehabilitation center for orphaned orangutans, who would otherwise risk falling victim to hunters or living outside their habitat in conditions unfavorable for their survival.
Kangoroo Island (Australia)
One of the main reasons that attract millions to Australia is undoubtedly the irresistible charm of its breathtaking and unspoiled nature. Among the many possible destinations for a safari in this vast country. We recommend Kangaroo Island, where more than half of its 4 400 sq km are occupied by protected parks and reserves, which house 10% of the world’s population. Sea lions, as well as an infinite number of specimens of the country’s symbolic animals, such as kangaroos and koalas.
Snow Leopard Tour (India)
What could be better than admiring the spectacle of nature from the roof of the world? In the Ladakh region, this is possible on the Indian side of the Himalaya mountain range. Where unique safaris are organized in one of the most inaccessible areas of the planet. It is a journey that is undoubtedly demanding. But will be amply rewarded by the possibility of contemplating unique landscapes. And beautiful animals such as hawks, bears, and the legendary snow leopard.
Bandhavgarh National Park (India)
We stay in India, but we descend from the highest peaks in the world, to discover what is known as the Tiger Reserve, a name attributed to this park which is home to the largest concentration of tigers in the world: a unique opportunity to observe these magnificent cats through the numerous jeep safaris organized daily inside the reserve.
The protected area of the Pantanal Pass is probably the best place for an ecotourism safari in South America. This huge tropical area in the western part of Brazil is home to an incredible wildlife variety – jaguars, alligators, anacondas, etc. – and biodiversity that leaves visitors speechless.
Valdes Peninsula (Argentina)
If your naturalistic interest also includes the marine world. Another place not to be missed in Latin America is the Valdes peninsula, on the east coast of Argentina.
Sea elephants, whales, dolphins, and penguins make the safaris undertaken by boat off this peninsula unforgettable.
