Safari Holidays In Africa


Africa is the land of vast terrain which has been the breeding ground for the first species on earth. The diverse ecosystem of the continent has always been able to lure tourists. Africa has been blessed with huge mountains, historical spots, largest desert, dense forest with flourishing flora and fauna. 



Egypt, Kenya, Morocco, Switzerland, Mauritius, Zimbabwe, and Tunisia are some of the African countries which have registered the maximum number of foreign tourists. The other countries too are not far behind. The magnificent Pyramids, Mount Kilimanjaro, Victoria Falls and The Sahara desert, are well known to even the kids all around the world. But there are lots of places other than these to explore in Africa.

The safari through national parks like Maasai Mara National Reserve, Serengeti National Park, Amboseli National Park, Kruger National Park etc.  would take you on a trip of immense surprise and shock. Buffalos, elephants, rhinos, lions and the leopard come under 'The Big Five'. The oryx, impala, Tragelaphus, Springbok are some other species which could be easily spotted during a safari. Ostrich, the largest bird, claims its home in South Africa. Besides, birls like Tawny-eagle, spotted eagle-owl etc. are also abundantly found in these regions. The deadliest reptiles like the cobra, green and black mamba etc. are also bountiful here. Safari through the dense forests could let you know more about these rare species.

Africa doesn't have a lot of beaches but the present ones there will inevitably be etched in the mind of every tourist. The crystal clear water, surfing, scuba diving and the opportunity to witness the largest mammal on earth 'Whale' should never be missed. Seals, surfing hippos, elephants and buffalos on the beach is a common sight but a rare one for travellers to behold. Enjoy your time on the beach witnessing the dolphins play at just a distance of few kilometres. The turquoise water and precious coral reef have always been the centre of attraction. Some of the breathtaking beaches are Mnemba Island at Tanzania, Quirimbas Archipelago in Mozambique, Anse Source d'Argent of Seychelles and Lamu Archipelago at Kenya.

The tribes of Africa are well known for their culture. Visiting them would be an opportunity to take a break from the digital era and immerse in the authentic humankind. Zulu, Maasai, San Bushmen, Yoruba etc. are some of the tribes located in the heart of Africa leading a holy life according to their beliefs. There is a lot to explore in Africa, be it the medieval castles of Euthopia or Isimila Stone Age site in Tanzania. Other historical places and markets which might cross your way during the safari are worth the money and time spent on travelling Africa. It's not just about tribals, but Cape Town in South Africa proves to be a first-class tourist destination with all the latest amenities to blow your mind and witness technology at its peak.

Africa is not just a continent; its a place to experience life at fullest. So, if you are planning for a safari let the masters in the field of tourism do it for you. Contact the safari hub for your next African expedition.
