Maasai Mara National Reserve, Kenya
Maasai Mara is consistently at the top of the list when it comes to the best safari spots in Africa. This renowned national park in southwest Kenya, near Tanzania, has all you might desire in a safari since it is home to over 570 species of birds and 95 species of animals.
It's also one of the greatest spots in Africa to see the Big Five (lion, Cape buffalo, leopard, rhinoceros, and elephant). While this beautiful reserve is open all year, the best months to visit are July to October, when the amazing wildebeest migration occurs, or December to February, when the chances of seeing more big cats are higher.
