How to Choose a Destination for Luxury Safari Vacation

Luxury Safari Destinations

There are so many destinations to choose from for your luxury safari vacation that it may seem confusing and difficult to pick a place. You can find the right destination for you by discussing with an experienced tour operator and carrying out some thorough research. Let’s take a look at some popular destinations as well as some slightly less well known but equally picturesque choices for your luxury safari trip.

Botswana and Tanzania

Tanzania is the largest country in the East Africa and is one of those gem countries that has plenty to offer those seeking an unforgettable luxury safari experience. The wildlife on offer is spectacular with the country playing host to the second largest number of bird species in the world as well as the largest mammal population. And of course Tanzania is home to Africa’s tallest mountain Mount Kilimanjaro. But that’s not all, the fourth natural wonder of the world, the Ngorongoro Crater is also in Tanzania as well as the Serengeti National Park and Oldoinyo Lengai, Tanzania’s only active volcano. Then why not try the stunning beaches of Zanzibar as the perfect way to relax at the end of your luxury safari. Another great choice would be the relatively un-spoilt and sparsely populated destination of Botswana. Dominated by the Kalhari desert, Okavango, Linyanti and Makgadikgadi are three of the best places to visit in the country. The Chobe National Park is another must see, especially because of its  wide variety of elephants and its close proximity to Victoria Falls. There are also opportunities to take boat rides or even flights to get a better view of the wildlife such as hippos. It’s also a destination that is perfect for a luxury safari visit at any time of the year. There are also the  countries of Zambia, Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Namibia to choose from too.

Popular Luxury Safari Destinations

Tanzania may be slightly more off the beaten track for a first time luxury safari vacationer but there are many more popular destinations you may want to consider. South Africa is a well-known destination that is suitable for inexperienced holidaymakers, with it being a direct flight from the US and offering many malaria free areas to stay. Then there is Kenya, which is home to the spectacular wildebeest migration and plenty of magnificent scenery and wildlife.  One thing is for sure, you will be spoilt for choice for yourluxury safari destination.
