Ten of the World’s Best Safari Locales



Safari, Swahili for “journey,” brings to mind images of dry African plains, charging herds of antelope and majestic lions resting in the shade. And rightfully so: Many of the world’s top safaris are found on the African continent.

At Masai Mara in Kenya, you’re sure to see the “big five”: the lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo. Kruger National Park in South Africa tops the pack for sheer variety of species. And the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania is the best spot to see millions of wildebeests, zebras and other animals migrate.

But other countries have interesting safaris, too. In Manitoba, Canada, chilly adventurers can spot polar bears roaming the frozen Churchill Tundra. If you’re into tigers, then the Corbett Tiger Reserve in India is the place for you. Regardless of your favorite animal, each safari will provide an up-close look at wildlife you won’t soon forget. Here’s the top ten.
