There are few more spectacular ways to get up close and personal with the world's most special creatures than on an African safari. And at The VISA Expeditions we have safari holidays to cater for everyone, from the casual animal fan to the avid naturalist.
Many of the most famous African safaris take place in Tanzania, which is home to a number of national parks. Perhaps most well-known of all Tanzania’s safari parks is the Serengeti National Park, which is home to amazing creatures such as lions, cheetahs and leopards. Those who go on safari holidays in the Serengeti with The Adventure Company are given an experienced and knowledgeable guide who helps them to scour the vast grassy plains for the big cats and have the perfect adventure holiday.
The wider Serengeti region covers other interesting sites such as the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, which is another popular stop-off on African safari holidays. Boasting one of the world's oldest eco-systems, the park attracts more than 90,000 tourists each year - and many come to view the Great Migration. Come on an African safari holiday during late May and early June and you stand a good chance of catching this amazing natural phenomenon, which sees more than one million wildebeest move south from the northern hills. Around 200,000 zebras also make the trip, meaning the Great Migration safari could be an unforgettable aspect of your African safari holiday. Animal aficionados could also incorporate a jaunt to the Lake Manyara National Park, which contains herds of elephants and tree-climbing lions, into their trip.
The Masai Mara's lands in neighbouring Kenya are also well worth a visit, while the Rift Valley contains the region's famous pink flamingos. There is so much to do on Africa safari holidays; one of the biggest challenges is fitting it all in, meaning repeat visits are a must.
