A safari into the heart of Africa can be the trip of a lifetime. These guided tours will take you on a journey through the African plains, where you’ll watch native wildlife in its most natural state – a trip to the local zoo simply can’t compare.

Safaris can include flying, camping, hiking or riding horseback through Africa’s plains, though one of the more popular options is a guided drive in an open-air jeep while staying at a campsite or lodge. During your safari, your guide might point out local residents like lions, zebras, warthogs and rhinos. Herds of giraffe or buffalo might graze within viewing distance, or you may see a few elephants bathing in a nearby river. And after a day of spotting exotic wildlife, you might return to your lodge to experience a local village and see how the natives live.

Whether you’re planning an African safari or holding this experience high on your travel wish list, enjoy a taste of the African plains with this photo tour of an African safari.
