Safari's are on my to do list. Other then the Everglades we haven't done a safari and I'm dying to change that. This is a great list that's made my destination choice even harder. 

The ultimate exhilaration that any wildlife enthusiast would love to experience is catching sight of wildlife in their natural locale. In their habitats, the animals behave differently to in a zoo. They are awe-inspiring.

Going on a safari is expensive, time consuming and takes planning. When you get your hands on such a glorious opportunity you will want to make the most of it. If you want a truly incredible trip then why not combine a Safari with a trip on a superyacht? This can be made possible by onboardonline.com.

There are just so many safari areas that you can visit. However, not all of them will provide you with vintage experiences the like of which you may will remember and reminisce about for a lifetime. So, with that in mind, here is a list of safari trips that are absolutely incredible.


The Maasai Mara, Kenya

Whenever someone talks about safari without mentioning The Maasai Mara in Kenya they are novices in this field. It is perhaps the most famous of all safari destinations, due to its magnificent variety of wildlife. From the famous “Big Five” to the Cape buffalo, all the way to the African Elephant, this is their home. Besides, you will have the chance to view the “Great Wildebeest Migration,” if your visit coincides with the season between July- October.

The incredibly spectacular migration is amongst the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, which tells you how breath-taking it is. Bird watching is another pastime that you can indulge in during your time here.


The Serengeti, Tanzania

Together with the Maasai Mara, the Serengeti National Park is one of the best safari sites in the world.It is blessed with a pristine, spectacular and most incredible eco-system making it one of the world’s top big-game safari viewing sites. It has some stunning scenery, as well the famous wildebeest migration that it shares with the Maasai Mara.

 

Yellowstone National Park, US

If you thought that safari can only be experienced in Africa, you would be wrong. The Yellowstone National park in the US is famous for its wildlife. Found roaming in its forests are some of the animals that have come to be synonymous with the American people’s culture. We are talking about bears, bison and even wolves. In fact, the wolves were introduced again in the park in 1996 after disappearing in 1994. Moreover, the park is habitat to a good number of endemic wildlife species, such as cutthroat trout, mouse and elk.


Costa Rica

For those passionate about watching endangered species, Costa Rica’s safari is the one for you. Its jungle safari is comprised of jungles which are lush green, making them a bit different, and a bit special. It has almost five hundred thousand species, which accounts for 4 per cent of all the wildlife in the world. A safari here gives you the opportunity to view exotic insects, butterflies and birds. Crocodiles, poison dart frogs, lizards and monkeys are amongst the most popular sites for tourists. You may be having your last opportunity to view one of the most endangered species in the world- the giant Anteater!

 

The Everglades, USA

This wildlife area receives one million visitors in a year for a reason. You certainly want to be one of those people and have a once in a lifetime experience. It’s only one of three wildlife sites to appear on three lists of importance simultaneously. It’s appeared on the Wetland of International Importance, International Biosphere Research and World Heritage site lists.

Its vast wetland makes it home to birds, which makes it perfect for bird lovers. In addition, it hosts endangered species like the American crocodile, West Indian Manatee and Florida panther.

 

Periyar Tiger Reserve, India

This is a stunning safari place if you are fond of tigers; we all love tigers! This wonderful park is laden with tropical evergreen as well as deciduous forests, which are moist. It possesses two of the most threatened species in the world, the Indian Elephant and the Bengal tiger. Other eye-catching events that you can experience while on a safari here include the wild pig races, Travancore flying squirrel and migrating birds.

The Kruger Park, South Africa

If there is one place that you should go on safari, then it is the Kruger Park. The park affords the opportunity to get up close and personal with nature.The animals there are unmoved by vehicles making the viewing experience in the park fabulous. This is one of the most amazing safari videos you will ever see!

It is also a very social safari destination; with lots of fun in the evenings. Book a date with this phenomenal park for an unforgettable experience.

 

Madagascar

This country is fortunate to have unique species of wildlife that are ONLY found here. For those safari lovers who get thrilled by the unique, bizarre and one of a kind, this will be a place for you.

Despite being isolated for more than 88 years, the island possesses an astonishing 90 per cent of endemic species. Surprisingly, there aren’t monkeys on the entire Island!

 

Wherever you choose to go you are going to have an astonishing safari trip! Stay safe!
