For many people Africa is somewhere that they have never visited and they also consider it as a continent which is somewhat out of their price range. The truth is that there are always ways and means to go after that vacation which you have always dreamed of, especially if their is enough impetus to do so. In the case of many countries in Africa, there are an enormous amount of animal adventures for you to explore and if you re an animal lover you will, and certainly should, find the ways and means which can facilitate you heading to some African nations, in search of some spectacular safaris and wildlife spotting tours. To help encourage you further, here are some animal adventures which you could consider saving up for.
The Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is home to around half of the world’s mountain gorillas, and you can have a chance to take a tour which will get you to within just a few meters of these beautiful beasts. Gorilla trekking in Uganda offers you an experience which you will never forget, waking up at the crack of dawn to meander your way through the thick forest with your guides, just waiting for that rustle of the trees before these giants of the animal kingdom present themselves. For an unforgettable experience, head to Uganda.
The great wildebeest migration is the largest migration of animals that happens anywhere in the world, as over 1 million wildebeest move in unity searching for fresh grasslands. The animals follow the same loop each year before starting again, as they follow the wet seasons through Kenya and Tanzania. Depending on when you visit, you can catch a glimpse of this huge number of animals, all moving in unison, facing challenges and obstacles as they go. The bets place to see the wildebeest migration is probably the Masai Mara in Kenya, which they pass through in mid-June. The Masai Mara is a great nature reserve anyway, and you can add to your trip by heading there when the wildebeest are passing through.
Kruger National Park in South Africa is probably the best place in the country to go on safari, and it also provides you with the chance to see the big 5 game animals. The big 5 are the rhino, the cape buffalo, the lion, the elephant and the leopard, and you can spot them with relative ease in this game reserve. On top of seeing these iconic creatures, you will also have the chance to see giraffes, impalas, wild cats and civets, as well as an enormous array of birds. Kruger has probably the best safari infrastructure of all of the game reserves in Africa, and visiting there will be a once in a lifetime experience.
Don’t put off what will be such a spectacular trip simply because of money or time, review your priorities and go and have an amazing time in Africa, discovering some of the most amazing animals in the world.
