There are many safari attractions in Africa but the three most popular are arguably the Kruger National Park, Okavango Delta and Victoria Falls.
The Kruger National Park is located in the northern region of South Africa and is home to the Big 5 wildlife. These are the Rhino, Lion, Elephant, Leopard and Buffalo. The best time to visit the Kruger Park is in August – September. This is the backend of winter and game viewing conditions are optimal. The climate is cool and the vegetation is low, making for optimal viewing. Further more, flights to South Africa are cheaper in the Winter months.
The Okavango Delta in Botswana is one of the most breathtaking places for an African safari. The Delta is home to large varieties of animal, bird and plant life and a Mokoro or canoe safari is a unique experience. By taking the local Mokoro you are able to get close the Delta banks and up close to animals coming down for water. Being eye level with an adult bull is an exhilarating experience.
Victoria Falls or the “Smoke That Thunders” as it was referred to, is located on the borders of Zambia and Zimbabwe. This breathtaking waterfall or rather series of waterfalls is a must see and only requires a quick two day stop.
Africa offers a very wide range of experiences and these are only three of them. For more safari or accommodation ideas visit African Safari Home.com and make a request for a consultant to guide you in the right direction.

The Okavango Delta in Botswana offers a more exclusive experience to the luxury safari traveler, or seasoned safari enthusiast.
