Travel information for Africa: Africa, the second largest Continent in the World is synonymous with safaris and one of the most favorable weather conditions for undertaking Holidays, relaxation, and creating unforgettable experiences. When you think of Africa, picture breathtaking golden sunsets that silhouette the long necks of giraffes as they pick leaves from acacia trees, the spectacular sweeping savannah plains dotted with different wildlife species, an encounter with our close relatives in the animal Kingdom and some of the friendliest people you have ever met. This extraordinary Continent has a total is 54 countries, each offering something remarkable, outstanding, and different from the other. For this reason, it sometimes becomes difficult to zero down on which safari destination to visit. However, your wildlife experience will determine where your next African safari will be based. If you wish to experience the Great wildebeest migration, you will visit Kenya or Tanzania but if your plan is to meet face-to-face with the mountain gorillas, you will choose Uganda or Rwanda. For visitors looking for unbeaten big five game drives, Kenya and Tanzania are their ultimate safari destinations.

One of the top safari destinations you will visit in Africa is Kenya, a 580367-square-kilometer country in the East African region.
