10 Best Places to Visit in Africa

Read our handy guide on the 10 best experiences and places to visit in Africa that have been carefully selected by our African safari experts.

Whether you are looking to witness the Great Migration, career down the Zambezi River or walk along Namibia's scenic Skeleton Coast, there are some experiences and places in Africa that cannot be missed.

The best African safari destinations are jam-packed with some fantastic adventures and these experiences are made even better when you throw in some exclusivity and a bit of luxury.

"To Yellow Zebra, nothing says adventure like being the first one to try something. The idea that it is new, unseasoned, or completely untried might make you a little apprehensive, but the unfiltered experience that awaits you is beyond imagination! With luxury and adventure at the core of what we do here at YZ, we jump at the chance to plan a safari that is a little different."
Julian Co-founder of YZ

Our best places to visit in Africa:

1. Serengeti & the Great Migration, Tanzania

These are Africa’s most popular wildlife experience. We specialise in putting you in the middle of the action. Stomping ground of the 2 million strong Great Migration and home to the highest concentration of predators in Africa, Serengeti National Park is one of those rare places that exceeds your imagination.

2. The Okavango Delta, Botswana

Botswana’s Okavango Delta is to many people the very best game-viewing region in the whole of Africa. The Delta offers the widest diversity of safari activities, as well as the most exclusive safari experience on the continent.

3. The Zambezi River Valley, Zambia

The Lower Zambezi is one of Africa’s most beautiful parks. Nestled between the Zambezi itself and the escarpment beyond, the Lower Zambezi is a stunning park with a wide choice of safari activities.

4. The Skeleton Coast, Namibia

The Skeleton Coast National Park is probably the most amazing scenic area where we operate trips. Stretching up the coast of northern Namibia for 500 kilometres, huge dune fields pan out as far as the eye can see.

5. Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, Uganda

Uganda is home to some of the last groups of mountain gorillas in the world. Bwindi is situated in the south-west of Uganda, part of an area known as the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. 

6. The Sabi Sands, South Africa

Sabi Sand has both fantastic game viewing and an unparalleled level of luxury accommodation. It is an exceptional destination for 'Big Five' safari, without any doubt one of the best on the entire continent.

7. The Cape Winelands, South Africa

Cape Town and the Winelands have very different things to offer. They are included in our Top 10, not only because we think they are particularly special, but also because they combine so well to make a fabulous holiday.

8. The Quirimbas Acrhipelago, Mozambique

Mozambique’s beaches are the finest in Africa, especially those in the northern Quirimbas Archipelago, which are absolutely world class. They sail into our Top 10 of Africa.

9. Moremi, Botswana

We are often asked where the best place is in Africa to see the largest prides of lion, and where we can guarantee superb cat sightings. If there was an answer, this would be it!

10. South Luangwa, Zambia

The most alluring of all of Africa’s cats is the elusive leopard. Zambia’s South Luangwa is one of the top places in Africa to view this magnificent beast.
