Kenya: Masai Mara National Reserve
Widely considered to be the greatest game park around the world, the Masai Mara National Reserve, featuring endless savannah plains, is one of Africa's most-visited Safari destinations.

South Africa: Kruger National Park
Covering nearly 19,485 sq km of untamed bush in north-eastern South Africa, the Kruger National Park boasts of an unmatchable diversity of wildlife.
The park is home to 145 mammal species and about 500 species of birds.
In addition to the Africa's Big Five (lion, leopard, rhinoceros, elephant, and Cape buffalo), there are large populations of hippos, crocodiles cheetahs, giraffes and several antelope species.
Tanzania: Serengeti National Park
The Serengeti National Park, covering a sprawling 15,000 sq km, has plenty of the African Big Five and a particularly abundant population of lions.
Further, the park also has more than 500 species of birds, including many raptors.
One of the major attractions of the park is the annual Wildebeest Migration, similar to The Great Migration at the Masai Mara National Reserve.
Namibia: Etosha National Park
The striking Etosha National Park, spread over a massive 22,270 sq km, boasts of some rare wild animals, in addition to the Big Five.
The place has huge populations of rhinos, giraffes, elephants, lions, antelopes, cheetahs and leopards.
Winter (April-October) is the best time to visit the park, as the vegetation is sparse during that time of the year.
Zimbabwe: Hwange National Park
The biggest and oldest game park in Zimbabwe, the Hwange National Park has large populations of lion, leopard, rhinos, buffaloes, elephants, giraffes, buffaloes and zebras.
Winter makes for the best time to visit the park, as it is easier to spot wildlife in the thinned-out bush.
Also, take a trip to the Victoria Falls, one of the natural wonders of world.
