Africa is one of the most popular holiday destinations with its spectacular scenery, amazing wild animals and completely different life-style. Luxury safaris make it possible to experience all of this and much more. You can go on guided tours with expert wildlife guides who know where to find the animals that you want to see at any given moment. When you come to your luxury lodge or camp you will find some of the best cuisine in Africa, both local as well as international and excellent service to make sure your stay in Africa is comfortable and enjoyable.
There are several kinds of luxury safaris in Tanzania including the national parks, the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater. The Tarangire National Park has a large elephant population and old baobab trees that have grown to a huge size. There are also plenty of predators.
The Ngorongoro Crater is famous for the ‘big five’ which are the lion, buffalo, elephant, rhinoceros and leopard. Those looking for more than just animals may be interested in vising some of the local Maasai villages or archeological sites such as the Olduvai Gorge which is considered the cradle of mankind. This Tanzanian luxury safari is also close to beach destinations.
In the Manyara National Park you will stay in luxury tree houses and in the Serengeti National Park you can see the annual migration of wildebeest. Tanzania is the centre for several luxury safari destinations.
The other hotspot for safaris is Kenya, this is where African safaris as holiday destinations began and luxury safaris in Kenya started soon after. It has large expanses of savannahs that are full of game. Kenya has made a point of having the best luxury lodges in Africa that have a professional staff who gives exceptional service. Cultural and educational excursions are also offered.
In Kenya the safaris are not just by vehicle, but you travel on foot to some exceptional, rarely seen places as well as by hot-air balloon. You will see the Lake Natron in the south, the ‘Lake of Fire’ where flamingos breed as well as dine under the night sky on the Serengeti. The Naibor Luxury Camp is in the heart of the Masai Mara and each luxury tented suite has a stunning view of the area.
On any African safari it is important to be careful what you eat as well as to view the wildlife safely. The luxury safari staff will take care of this for you. They will see that all your needs are met in the best possible way so that you can focus on what you came to Africa to see.
