Beautiful Animals to See in the African Safari

Are you ready for your African Safari adventure?  A trip to the African Safari can be the best nature trip you will ever have whether or not you are an animal lover. However, it can be daunting to decide where to go unless you have an idea which place at the park has the greatest number of your favorite animals.

African Safari is a huge park. So we have listed the different types of animals that you can expect to see upon coming to this beautiful site.


You will have excellent sightings of lions at the park for sure. Lions are known as the “king of the jungle” and it is no surprise that they are the most popularly sought-after animal in the safari. If you want to sight some lions you, the best spots to go are Kenya, Tanzania, Botswana, and Namibia.


Going to the safari will give you a chance to see leopards hanging on the trees. Although they are believed to be nasty and fierce, as they hunt prey during the night, they are actually shy. This is why they spend most of the days hiding in rocky outcrops or in the canopy of large trees. You will see them in places with less lions, which are their greatest rivals such as the South Luangwa National Park in Zambia, or at the Sabi Sand Game Reserve in Kruger National Park.


There are less than 30,000 rhinos left in the world and most of them can be seen in the plains of South Africa. However, since their numbers are gradually depleting, it is very rare to see rhinos nowadays. You would be truly lucky if you see them during your trip. The best places to go are the Etosha National Park in Namibia or the Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe.

African Elephant

If you want to see a large herd of African Elephants, the best place to go is Botswana.  Elephants are often the most favorite animals by visiting tourists because they are very common and familiar. Other parks with a large number of elephants are the Addo Elephant Park and Kruger National Park in South Africa.


Although they are known to cause more human deaths in South Africa than any large animals, hippos are one of the most sought- after animals in South Africa. The best place to find them is by the river, swamp, or lake. Better yet head to the  Zambezi River in Zambia, Selous Game reserve in Tanzania, or Maasai Mara National Park in  Kenya. Youtube:
