In East and Southern Africa you will find many safari parks, where you can spot many animals during the most beautiful safaris. But how do you know which safari park is best for you? That is why here the Top 5 Best safari parks in Africa. Whichever of these Tanzania safari parks you choose, you will have a fantastic time! Easytravel provides more tips and guides to travel Tanzania safari.


1 Serengeti National Park, Tanzania 

Serengeti is known for its endless grassy plains. Many documentaries were made here, often about the Great Migration, a trek of two million wildebeest and zebras that roam the Serengeti. At the peak of the trek you can see wildebeest and zebras as far as you can see.

The number of animals cannot be counted in the rest of the year either. You will almost certainly see lions, leopards, elephants and buffalo, with which you can tick off four of the Big Five. Black rhinos do occur, but are hard to find. Spend a day out in Serengeti and you will lack eyes. The size of the park also ensures that you can drive for hours without getting to the same places. Enjoy lunch at a picnic spot in the middle of the park and then discover a new part of the park.

2 Masai Mara National Park, Kenya 

From Serengeti we go to Masai Mara in Kenya. Together with Serengeti, it actually forms one park. Here too, the Great Migration passes through the park, with the crossing of the Mara river as a dramatic highlight. An endless procession is embarking on the dangerous crossing. On land, cats are waiting for their chance and in the water comes the danger of the crocodiles. You have a good chance to see the three big cats (lions, leopards and cheetahs). With a little luck you can even see them in action while hunting one of the many prey animals.

Just like in Serengeti, the complete Big Five occurs, although you probably won't see the black rhino here either. But the beautiful landscape and the large numbers of wild animals more than make up for that.

3 South Luangwa National Park, Zambia 

Many call South Luangwa the most beautiful Tanzania safari park in Africa. This park and Zambia are less known as a safari destination among the general public. That is one of the advantages in the park: it is quieter than in Serengeti or Masai Mara and that reinforces the experience that you are in the domain of wild animals.

The night drives are very special. As soon as dusk falls, you go out with a searchlight in search of leopards. They show themselves in the wooded area in the evenings. Or stop in the middle of an open space, in the full darkness. As soon as the guide turns off the engine, you silently enjoy the countless stars in the sky that you will not see anywhere else in the Netherlands. Until the roar of a male lion breaks the silence. The roar in the dark is very intimidating, you see nothing and therefore have no idea if the lion is close. But rest assured, your guide knows, so you can just concentrate on the experience.

4 Okavango Delta, Botswana 

The Okavango Delta can certainly not be missed in the Top 5 Tanzania Safari Parks in Africa. The delta makes it a completely different safari park than most parks in Africa. The area is dominated by a large river delta. So you cannot reach all places by car. So step into a mokoro, a hollowed-out tree trunk as a canoe. This is an unforgettable way to go on a safari. Let the guide guide you through the delta and stare into the water and the banks in search of wild animals. Sitting low on the water with an elephant on the shore, makes you realize how big these animals are.

With the introduction of the rhino, all iconic safari animals are present in the Okavango Delta. You have a good chance here to spot the entire Big Five.

5 Mana Pools, Zimbabwe 

Mana Pools is a safari park for the real adventurers. It is very remote and you travel here by canoe or on foot. The river is full of crocodiles and hippos, where you gently paddle in between. Large herds of buffalo and elephants migrate along the banks and enter the water. Nowhere are you so one with nature as here.

The three big cats are found in the area. From the water the chance that you will see a lot is smaller, but most visitors see at least one feline during their Tanzania safari. The reason to visit Mana Pools is really the adventure to discover this pure wilderness among the many animals by canoe and on foot.
