The Best Places to See Wildlife in Africa
Africa is famous for its wildlife, with animals such as lions, elephants and hippos calling it home, as well as creatures that can’t be found anywhere else. Here are three of the best places to see some of these animals in the wild.
Serengeti National Park
Each year, the Great Migration takes place here. Animals travel hundreds of kilometres as they move from Serengeti National Park to Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya, in search of food and water. The migration includes about 2 million wildebeests and hundreds of thousands of gazelles and zebras.
Bwindi Impenetrable National Park
Visitors can go on a tour with a guide in search of some of the gorilla families. Other animals in the park include chimpanzees, elephants and about 350 types of birds.
Aliwal Shoal Marine Protected Area
Here you can find animals such as manta rays, dolphins and tropical fish, but many people come for the sharks. There are sometimes 50 to 60 ragged-tooth sharks in the same area, and visitors can even scuba dive with them.
