As k The Ex p e r t Where to go on safari in Africa Sam Katterfield, travel expert at HolidayPirates, shares his top seven safari destinations to inspire you for your next adventure 1. SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK, TANZANIA Serengeti National Park, established in 1952, is undoubtedly the best-known wildlife sanctuary in the world, with a resident population of lion, elephant, giraffe, birds, and more. The park, which covers a remarkable space of 14,763 sq km, has a wide variety of accommodations available, from luxury lodges to mobile camps. Depending on what you are on the lookout for, you have the option to stay in one of the three sections in the park, ‘endless plains’; ‘classic savannah’, ‘dense bush’. The national park is perhaps most known for its ecosystem, which is one of the oldest on earth, and the migration of over a million wildebeest and zebras from the northern hills to the southern plains every October and November, and then move west in April, May, and June. 2. KRUGER NATIONAL PARK, SOUTH AFRICA Kruger is one of the largest game reserves in Africa. Situated on the border of South Africa, Zimbabwe, and Mozambique, it is easily accessible from both Cape Town and Johannesburg. A safari tour in its 19,485 sq km park (which is bigger than Israel) gives you the opportunity to sight the Big Five: elephant, lion, rhino, leopard, and buffalo, as well as the Little Five: buffalo weaver, elephant shrew, leopard tortoise, ant lion and rhino beetle. You also have the chance to see the birding Big Six: ground hornbill, kori bustard, lappet-faced vulture, martial eagle, Pel’s fishing owl and saddle-bill stork. Kruger Park is a self-drive destination, but there are also guided tour operators. 3. MAASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE, KENYA Maasai Mara is situated in southwest Kenya, and connects with the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania that together form Africa’s most diverse and oldest ecosystem. Similar to its smaller brother, the Maasai Mara reserve is worth a visit for a chance to experience the wildebeest and zebra migration in July to October, and if you visit between December to February, when it is much dryer in the region, your chances of encountering the Big cats are increased. 4. MOREMI GAME RESERVE, BOTSWANA If you want to go somewhere a bit more remote and exclusive, then Moremi is definitely the reserve for you. Located within the UNESCO listed Okavango Delta Game Reserve, Moremi covers around 40% of the reserve, and sees a beautiful balance between water, which is brought about by the annual flood, and wildlife. The Moremi is home to the most endangered species of large mammals: cheetah, white rhinoceros, black rhinoceros, African wild dog, and lion, over 500 bird species, and over 1,000 species of plants. 5. HWANGE NATIONAL PARK, ZIMBABWE Hwange National Park is home to a handful of private reserves that offer good value for money, for example, the Linkwasha Camp in the Linkwasha Concession is worth a visit. The access to the Ngamo Plains provides you with the possibility to get close to herds of elephants, zebras, waterbuck, as well as more unusual species, such as side-striped jackals, honey badgers, and bat-eared foxes, and a big variety of birds. 6. MADIKWE GAME RESERVE, SOUTH AFRICA Due to its broad spectrum of habitats, including mountains, plateaus, seasonal wetlands, bushes, and savannah areas, the Madikwe Reserve in North West Province accommodates a wide variety of animals. You can get the chance to spot the Big Five here, and there are more than 350 species of birds and insects. The accommodation in the Reserve is varied, but it specialises in private luxury. For example, the Madikwe Safari Lodge or the Makanyane Safari Lodge are equipped with private lodges including a pool and fireplace, and you can even enjoy private morning and evening tours. 7. ETOSHA NATIONAL PARK, NAMIBIA The Etosha National Park is a truly unique experience, and is the most accessible reserve in Namibia. Its main characteristic is a salt pan that is so large, it can be seen from space, but it is also the home to a wide range of wildlife. Spending time around the waterholes, you will have the opportunity to see black rhino, lions, wildebeest, and leopard. This visit for anyone that is patient, because waterhole spotting is all about patience - find a good spot, switch off the engine, and wait...
