Top Safari Destinations

Surprised at how little Top Ten Safari information I was able to find on the internet, I decided to compile a list of a few that are worth looking over for those interested in taking a wildlife safari based holiday in the future. The following are pretty good resources for starting this research.

Africa Classics and some other good safari destinations

Go Africa Top Ten Safari Destinations (another conventional best-of list)

One can't help but notice how Africa dominates the safari scene but it is also very much worth considering alternative destinations to places like India where national parks can also be rich with wildlife and where the elusive tiger can be found. Here are a few Best of India resources that are decent for safari research for this part of the world.

Another valuable research would be the destination specific travel forums here on Tripadvisor where a wealth of knowledge is stored about safari and other related holidays. These are also a very good place to spend your time in order to determine which holiday is best suited for your travel needs and interests.

Added consideration for those researching safari based holidays. When making safari decisions one of the things you have to consider is the self-drive vs. private reserve experience. These are quite different but equally rewarding ways to go about a safari holiday.

Here is a Self-drive vs. Private Reserve article from the South Africa forum that might be worth reading for those researching a safari holiday and thinking about this question.

Great list BradJill, I have been to several of those destinations including Kruger, Chobe and Ranthambore.

Can I also recommend the game reserves in Zimbabwe (e.g. Hwange, Matopos, Mana Pools to name just a few) - fantastic game viewing and not touristy at all (yet).
