If you’d like to see wildlife like elephants and zebras or the fascinating migration of wilderbeasts then you must go on a safari tour via the Serengeti. It promises an immersive experience with the turbulent crossing of the wilder beast through the Serengeti while trying to escape the Nile crocodiles waiting patiently in the river.

It will cost you but make sure you book in advance and use the park’s campground to save some money.

For the best viewing experience, go from June through October.

Victoria Falls

Found between Zambia and Zimbabwe, Victoria Falls is one of the world’s most majestic waterfalls making even Niagara Falls look like a pool.

Did you know Victoria Falls is a UNESCO World Heritage site?

It is located in Mosi Oa Tunya Park and the best time to visit is between April and May. While there, you will enjoy checking out the Knife-Edge Bridge, Devil’s Pool, Zambezi River, and Livingstone Island.

Asides the Serengeti, this is another alternative for those who want to go on a safari tour. Before you choose a guide, ensure they’re verified by the Kenya Professional Safari Guides Association.

Do well to go horseback riding while you’re at Masai Mara National Reserve and there’s an option to enjoy the safari tour with a hot air balloon.
