A safari is an overland journey, usually a trip by tourists in Africa. In the past, the trip was often a big-game hunt, but today, safaris are often to observe and photograph wildlife—or hiking and sightseeing, as well.

They involve the primary goal of watching wild animals in their natural habitat. Kenya claims to have had the first commercial safari holidays.
Heading out at dawn on a Big 5 safari game drive, following millions of wildebeest on the Great Migration, heading up in a hot-air balloon to see the Serengeti, or trekking gorillas in lush rainforest – no matter what’s on your vacation wish list, a holiday in Africa ticks all the boxes.
