South Africa Best Safari White Rhinoceros by Safari Guru Deon De Villiers

South Africa

An enormous country with a landmass almost five times the size of Britain and twice that of France, but what makes it so fascinating is the sheer diversity of its geography. To the north is the Kalahari Desert with its black-maned lions and beguiling meerkats. The subtropical east is lapped by the warm Indian Ocean and golden beaches, while the stormy and icy Atlantic pounds the Western Cape. The northeast is churned by the Limpopo River and home to the vast and rightly famous Kruger National Park, the oldest and most successful of all wildlife preservation areas in the country.

Botswana

Nestled in the heart of Southern Africa, this captivating land offers a safari experience like no other. From the shimmering waters of Botswana's Okavango Delta to the vast stretches of the Kalahari Desert, Botswana’s diverse landscapes create a haven for an incredible array of wildlife.

A Botswana safari would only be complete with a trip into the iconic Okavango Delta - specifically, the Moremi National Park at the heart of the Delta. Exploring the Delta’s hidden waterways, an ever-evolving living ecosystem is unforgettable. 

Further east, the Linyanti Concession, including the Chobe National Park in northern Botswana, holds some of the most significant elephant populations on the planet. This vast expanse of wilderness offers guests the contrast of wooded savannah safaris to perennial waterways, with abundant wildlife during the drier months. The famous Savuti channel forms a significant boundary into the Linyanti and holds tales of animals that frequent many nature documentaries.

Zambia

Primarily considered a seasonal safari destination, Zambia holds some of the most remote and untouched savannahs Sub-Saharan Africa has to offer. 

Uncompromised, Zambia comes alive when the rains subside, and flocks of colourful and broody avian species infiltrate the vast plains and waterways for seasonal breeding. It's an extravaganza second to none, yet only compliments the impressive populations of free-roaming wildlife.

Zambia is a gloriously wild and untouched African country, just perfect for those seeking a remote and authentic safari experience. But make no mistake, Zambia offers plenty of luxurious safari camps and lodges, many of which are Safari Guru favourites.
