Travel Africa Blog guide offers a list of all African Parks where you can visit on your safari in Africa. Africa is famously known for the rare great apes, wildlife, bird life, culture, water bodies, and much more landscapes. Africa has four regions namely:

East Africa is much known for the great apes (mountain & Lowland gorillas, Chimpanzees, golden monkeys, and other monkeys) which are found only in Uganda (Bwindi Forest National Park & Mgahinga Gorilla National Park), Rwanda (Volcanoes National Park), and Democratic Republic of Congo which is found in Central Africa.

In Virunga National Park you can experience the mountain gorillas and the active volcano (Mount Nyiragongo) and then from the Kahuzi Biega National Park you can experience the Lowland gorillas.

The region is also known for the variety of wildlife and today all tourists visiting Africa can not miss the Wildebeest Migration that takes place in Tanzania (Serengeti National Park) and Kenya (Masaai Mara National Reserve) where you can enjoy the cheapest group tours in Kenya.

Southern Africa is ideal for the wildlife and holidays in countries like South Africa, Botswana, Mozambique, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Namibia, and much more.

Western Africa

Northern Africa and these are desert places and most tourists to this region visit the Egyptian pyramids and historical places in this region together with Morocco.

Apart from primates and wildlife Africa offers various bird life species that are only found in Africa like the rare shoe bill stork and the migratory birds which are found on the shores of some of the Lakes and River banks.

African culture is also much becoming loved by international tourists and to have this experience some of the tour operators have initiated sustainable cultural tours in most tourist places and most clients do participate in projects called Community Based Tourism.

A case in point is the Iby’wacu Cultural Village initiated to promotes Rwanda’s cultural tourism and at the same time reducing poverty in the once gorilla hunters and now Eco-warriors.
