Fort those vacationers looking for a thrill, there are few more thrilling adventures than an African safari. The African continent is rich in wildlife that can’t be found anywhere else on the planet and offers for thrill seekers the chance to get up close with these rare creatures. Options for going on a safari range all the way from staying in five star accommodations to getting right into the middle of the savannah and sleeping in tents among the wildlife. The price of taking such an adventure can be high, but the experiences that you can have make the trip a once in a lifetime opportunity. The most popular safaris to embark on are ones in East Africa and South Africa. An East African safari will offer to guests the opportunity to get up close with animals such as lions, rhinos, giraffes, and many more. A South African experience offers guests an opportunity to see the same animals, but also focuses on the cuisine and capital city of South Africa to give guests a diverse experience.
