Africa is a continent which has always been a big draw for nature lovers. The region has redefined wildlife with its adrenaline-pumping African safaris that give tourists a peek into the undiscovered world of lions, hyenas, zebras and much more. The demand for these safaris is growing year by year. The national parks of Africa are dense, well-preserved, pristine and as natural as possible. Be it the ear-splitting roar of the heavily haired lion or be it the whimper of a buffalo calf (that got assaulted by a blood-thirsty predator) – all the encounters would appear up, close and personal.
There are quite a few areas where wildlife bubbles and brews in abundance. From the innocuous bison to the lethal cats, these green belts house them all witnessing a milieu of carnage, treachery, life, death, birth and repose. Some noteworthy regions where African safaris are arranged include the following:
The Okavango Delta: Nestled in central part of Africa, the heavily flooded Okavango Delta is teeming with beasts and birds of an eclectic variety. One of the largest inland deltas on the planet, this is the region where the hunter often becomes the hunted, and tourists enjoy game viewing from their safe enclosures.Serengeti National Park, Tanzania: Serengeti National Park in Tanzania is famed for the Wildebeest Migration wherein over 1.4 million wildebeests make the crossover in hunt for fertile land. Gazelles and zebras too join the party and this migration is often dubbed as the ?greatest show on Earth?. Their route also includes passage through Kenya?s Masai Mara National Reserve.
