Africa’s size and diversity are often taken for granted. Even the term “safari” can mean something different depending on which part of the continent you’re in. Interested in a classic African safari to spot the Big 5? Your best bet could be a game drive in Kenya. Enjoy the plains of Kenya and Tanzania which are scattered with wildebeest, zebra, and antelope, attracting opportunistic big cats. You can watch the drama unfold from an open 4×4, before relaxing on the beaches of Zanzibar. Or, take a self-drive trip in South Africa, whose vineyards, wave-thrashed coastline, and cosmopolitan cities balance well with its safari areas.
