The danger and beauty of wild, unrestrained nature as it has been for so many years has intrigued and enthralled people around the world since David Livingston wrote England of his adventures in Africa. Safaris have long been in the top list of dream vacations. How exciting it would be to see the King of the jungle himself, lounging in the shade with the rest of his pack. To be so close to danger, and yet still safe from it all is one of the reasons safaris and Africa are so popular.
When most people think of Africa and safaris, their mind automatically goes to the Serengeti. This gorgeous expanse of African wilderness has been home to many different thrilling animals from almost the dawn of time. Seeing elephants and hippos and giraffes, in addition to so many others, makes for a very memorable experience. Your poor camera will be so completely worn out.

Which countries in Africa offer the best in attractions and tours? Kenya usually finds itself at the top of the list for safaris in Africa. Travel to this country’s most beautiful parks during seven or ten day jaunts that offer an array of experiences you could only dream about. Tanzania, with a park located at the base of Mount Kilimanjaro, and Zambia are also popular destinations for safaris in Africa.
But there are reputable companies in other parts of Africa as well. Do your research and read all information thoroughly before committing your time and money to anywhere in particular. There are also web sites, like The Virtual Tourist that offers ratings and comments from people who have already been where you are going.
For some people, booking an African safari sounds very difficult and time consuming. The nervousness and excitement of visiting another country so far from your home can also put you on edge. And maybe at one time planning was a headache, but not anymore. Thanks to the internet, companies are making it easier than ever for you to have the vacation of a lifetime.
The African Safari Club sets you up with much ease, almost everything in different packages; just pick how many days you want and you are almost good to go. Some parks require an admittance fee that is not included in the safari price. But this can be handled locally and still through the company.
