If it is natural beauty that you wish to experience then Tanzania should be top of your list. Imagine the undulating waves of millions of Wildebeest as they traverse the open plain in migration. The dust so thick you can taste it and the deep beat of hooves vibrating through your feet.
The Serengeti is one of the ten natural travel wonders of the world, featuring on many people’s bucket lists. The Serengeti National Park is situated in Tanzania and is one of the best spots to observe Wildebeest and other large animals. Sadly, poaching is threatening the ability for the animals and ecosystem to thrive in the Serengeti with conservationists suggesting that poaching could wipe out elephant populations in this decade if not curbed. Why not find out what you can do to stop the poaching threat? Explore conservation based African safari packages.
Imagine the rush of standing on the side of a volcano? Kilimanjaro is a dormant volcano in Tanzania and is a conquest popular for mountain climbers. But you do not need to be an enthusiastic mountain goat to enjoy Kilimanjaro, why not visit Lake Chala with views across the lake to Kilimanjaro while indulging in a gourmet and relaxing picnic.
If you needed a few more reasons to add Tanzania to your African holiday list of places to see, there is the ancient and rich culture and diversity in landscapes from coastal, to sandy plains and lush rain forest.

Stark and twisted and dead is how the environment can appear. Yet the camel thorn trees are a beautiful contrast against a backdrop of colour, blue and white and tones of orange and yellow. These trees can be 900 years old and stubbornly stand tall, reaching for the heavens.
In Namibia there are a number of national parks, where you can enjoy a wide range of accommodation options to suit your African travel plans and budget. There is a great mix of desert, semi-desert and savannahs with a diverse range of wildlife to see such as over 340 species of birds, rhino’s and lions.
If you wanted to feel like the last man or woman on earth for a moment, visit Fish River Canyon, a large and flat land criss-crossed with river beds that flow to everywhere and nowhere with not another soul to see.

What is your favourite colour? Pink for girls and blue for boys? The best place to be to experience vibrant and moving colour is Lake Nakuru national park. The spectacular sight of thousands of flamingos, their dusky shades of pink perfectly accented by the beautiful blue waters and sky.
Think saddles! Why not ride horses to follow the Zebra herds, gallop alongside and be part of the Zebra’s daily movements in the Masai Mara? Or spot the Rhino in Soli Reserve.
Kenya offers beach views, national park experiences described above but also the rich culture and heritage of the bustling towns and cities. Nairobi, Kenya’s capital city, has a unique character and energy with a modern vibe and despite being a capital city, Nairobi National Park provides sanctuary to wild lions living just 20 minutes from City Centre.

Zambezi River – Victoria Falls Tours
Zambezi is the place to be for water sport, kayaking, canoeing and fishing. But not for the faint of heart because as cute as the fat hippos look, they are as aggressive as the elephants are big, both of which you may spot while traveling on the Zambezi river. Other animals you may see drinking at the river’s edge include; crocodiles, water buck, buffalo, zebras and lions.
Another attraction, not to miss is the thundering Victoria Falls, another natural wonder of the world found right in Africa and a must have on your holiday itnierary.
