Going on a safari holiday is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for many. For this reason, you should try
your best to get it right the first time by carefully researching the best locations for your luxury safari

One of the Luxury places I stayed in Tanzania!

But with Africa being the biggest continent in the world, it can be hard to know which part is
best suited for your trip.

To help you plan your next adventure, here are our top 3 locations for a stellar African safari.

Okavango Delta


The Okavango Delta is one of the most beautiful locations in Africa. Nestled in northern Botswana,
you’ll witness wildlife-rich landscapes fed by floodwaters from Angola.

Between May and October is usually the best time to explore as you’ll be able to venture out on a
traditional canoe which adds another dimension to your trip.

As this is a wild, remote part of Africa, only a few tourists are allowed to visit each year. This makes it
one of the most expensive locations for a safari – but also one of the most exceptional.

Here, you’ll be able to see buffalo-hunting lions, hippos wading through the waters, and wild dogs chasing prey through the bushes. Add into the mix a wide range of extraordinary birds and it’s easy to see why the Okavango Delta is one of the best places to observe wildlife.

Each year 71 million people from the UK travel abroad
, but very few go to the Okavango Delta.
Become one of them if you want a truly unforgettable holiday.

Maasai Mara- Serengeti

The pride in saying that I DID TAKE THIS PHOTO In the Serengeti Park!

Situated in southwest Kenya and Tanzania, the Maasai Mara-Serengeti is renowned for its rolling savanna grasslands,
incredible wildlife populations and even more impressive wildebeest herds that cross the Mara River
during July and October.

If you’re looking to catch a glimpse of a big cat? The Maasai Mara and Serengetu is the place to be. Home to prolific numbers of big cats (lions, cheetahs, and leopards to name a few!), tourists flock to this beautiful location each year to catch a glimpse of the Big Five.


As it’s a popular safari destination, it’s important to find a top guide or stay in one of the private
conservancies surrounding the national park – you’ll pay extra, but it’s worth every penny.

Ngorongoro Crater

Me, looking at the vastity of the Ngorongoro Crater before our descent!

Finally, it’s the Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania. Sitting at an impressive 2,000 feet deep, this 100-
square mile-long crater is one of the most dramatic backdrops – but it’s also teeming with wildlife.

Home to elephants, critically endangered rhinos, lions, and flocks of flamingos, this crater is a hit with
wildlife lovers – especially in the dry season which runs from June to September.

If a safari isn’t your thing, you can hike to nearby Maasai villages during cooler months to get a taste
of the local culture. If you’re inspired to go on a safari holiday, you can’t go far wrong with these 3 breathtaking locations.
