A safari holiday is one of those once-in-a-lifetime trips that belong on everyone’s travel bucket list. The classic African safari involves daily game drives in search of the ‘Big Five’: lions, leopards, elephants, rhinos and buffalo. You’ll normally be staying in a game reserve such as Kruger or Sabi Sands, with accommodation that ranges from simple tented camps to luxurious lodges. Alternatively you can travel to the Serengeti to witness the Great Migration, where mobile safari camps follow the vast herds of wildebeest and zebra across the savannah. Other top African safari destinations include Namibia’s Etosha National Park, home to the rare desert-adapted elephant, and the watery wonderland of the Okavango Delta.
