  4. Botswana. Whether it is the Okavango Delta or Chobe National Park, wildlife safaris in Botswana are definitely authentic and rank amongst the most spectacular in Africa! Botswana is also one of the only places where you can experience canoe (known as "mokoro") safaris...wherein you have the opportunity to see wildlife and birdlife while cruising down one of the rivers or water channels. Explore further with more information on Botswana.

  5. Victoria Falls. At Victoria Falls, the earth splits open and swallows one of Africa’s greatest rivers, the mighty Zambezi, creating the largest sheet of falling water on earth. Above the falls on the upper Zambezi, boats cruise the tranquil water at sunset while the distant spray catches the fading light downstream. Aside from being a UNESCO world heritage site and one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, Victoria Falls also forms a natural border between Zimbabwe and Zambia. The falls can be seen from both countries, and for the most part the same activities are offered on both sides, from helicopter scenic flights to village visits and souvenir shopping.

  6. Zambia. Zambia is known for walking safaris and authentic unadulterated areas of wildlife that offer fantastic animal sightings and bird watching. Explore further with more information on Zambia.
  7. Zimbabwe. Although not as well-known for its wildlife as its more popular neighbors to the south, South Africa and Botswana, Zimbabwe is seeing a real resurgence in wildlife viewing and walking safaris. For visitors who want to get away from the crowds and have more private and exclusive safari experiences, Zimbabwe is a fantastic option. Explore further with more information on Zimbabwe.
  8. Namibia. Namibia is known for its amazing sand dunes of the Kalahari Desert. Wildlife safaris in Etosha National Park are also very unique in the sense that this is one of the only places in Africa where wildlife has adapted to the harsh desert conditions. Explore further with more information on Namibia.
  9. Indian Ocean islands of Seychelles & Mauritius. Mauritius and Seychelles have some of the most incredible beaches, warm ocean waters, and marine life. Snorkeling and diving in and around these islands are off-the-chart amazing! Explore further with more information on Seychelles and Mauritius.
