To see amazing animals and find yourself in breathtaking landscapes, there's not much better than a safari - perfect for solo travellers, couples or families.
The best safari spots in Africa
Volcanoes National Park, Rwanda
Not the safest destination by any means but Rwanda's rainforests, volcanoes and lakes make it impossible to leave off of our list. Trekking and canoeing are incredible, while the 350-strong mountain gorilla population will leave you speechless.
Etosha National Park, Namibia
Etosha National Park is home to Africa's tallest elephants, cheetahs, and, of course, an array of big cats. It also offers a massive range of accommodation options.
Zambezi Valley, Zambia
Zambia's national parks are often neglected by tourists in favour of its neighbour Tanzania, but we think that Zambezi Valley is the real definition of wilderness and the horseback safaris are an awesome experience.
Kruger National Park, South Africa
The word 'Kruger' has by now become synonymous with safaris and, as one of Africa's oldest and best-maintained parks, it's easy to see why. The easiest spot to see the Big Five, it remains a favourite for all safari-goers.
