November 28, 2019:SafariBookings.com, an online marketplace for African safari tours, performed a comprehensive study to discover which country should be crowned this year’s winner. After careful inspection of more than 4,000 reviews (completed by both safari-goers and African travel experts), Botswana was crowned the overall winner. There can be no doubt of Botswana’s mantle as the best country on the continent for safari travel.
The diversity and concentration of wildlife found in Botswana is found in few other places in Africa – from the bright blue/green waters trickling over desert sand in the Okavango Delta to the roar of the black-maned lion reverberating around the Kalahari, not to mention salt pans which challenge as some of the largest on our planet. Botswana is a scene stealer.
Further investigation of our study reveals Tanzania as the best country overall for scenic value, while Botswana consolidated its ranking, heading up the Wildlife, Birding and Bush categories.
Zambia rose up the popularity stakes too, slipping into the number three position quietly and without fuss. It was heartening to see this country get some recognition for the safari gem it is.
