Why should I experience nature’s wonders?

Honestly? No matter which tour in Africa you pick, you’ll enjoy exceptional nature experiences, which are probably totally different to anything else you’ve seen before. Even if the tour isn’t mentioned above, it doesn’t mean that you won’t experience magnificent nature. You will!

But the tours we’ve selected above under the “Nature’s wonders” category are tours that contain some really quite special nature, which in one way or another can be classed as a “wonder”. And who doesn’t want to experience the most beautiful, fascinating and unique nature that Africa has to offer?

What natural wonders can I experience in Africa?

A wonder is something extra special. These are the sights or experiences that can be difficult to grasp – the experiences that give us goosebumps.

And these experiences come thick and fast in Africa.

In addition to being wonders – or perhaps for that very reason – these experiences or areas are often also UNESCO World Heritage Sites, which is international recognition of outstanding natural phenomena and exceptional natural beauty, for example.

We’ve picked out some of the phenomenal nature experiences below:

Sossusvlei in Namibia

In Namibia’s largest national park, Namib Naukluft Park, you’ll find the Namib Sand Sea, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

One of the most popular sights in the area is Sossusvlei, the name of the world’s tallest sand dunes – a unique experience, especially when the sun creates a dramatic colour shift in the morning.

The Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania

The Ngorongoro Crater in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area is the world’s largest intact caldera, or cauldron, which occurred some 2.5 million years ago following a violent volcanic eruption.

Left behind now is a huge area of about 260 km2, which consists of varied nature including highland plains, savannah, forests and much more besides. Some 25,000 wild animals live here, and you can experience amazing birds, common and rare African animals and the great migration.

Victoria Falls in Zambia

Victoria Falls is one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the world.

It is neither the largest nor the widest waterfall, but the water creates the world’s largest cascading “curtain”, when 1 million litres of water per second drop more than 100 metres into the Batoka Gorge over a stretch of 1,700 metres.

The waterfall is known by the locals as Mosi-oa-Tunya – the smoke that thunders – and the mist from the waterfall can also be seen up to 20 km away.

Serengeti National Park in Tanzania

The endless plains of Serengeti National Park in Tanzania are home to one of the world’s most impressive nature experiences, the annual great migration of wildebeest, gazelles and zebras, which has helped earn the national park its place on the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites.

The nature of the national park helps, among other things, to feed the largest number of ungulates, as well as the biggest concentration of large predators in the world.

Kilimanjaro National Park in Tanzania

Kilimanjaro National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site as it helps protect the mountain of the same name which, with its snow-capped peak, towers 5,895 metres above sea level.

Mount Kilimanjaro is both Africa’s highest mountain and the world’s highest free-standing mountain, not to mention one of the largest volcanoes in the world. In addition to its height and stunning snow-capped peak, the mountain has five vegetation zones, and the entire area boasts abundant flora and fauna.

Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in Uganda

Bwindi Impenetrable National Park covers an area of 32,000 hectares in south-western Uganda.

The national park has unique biodiversity, both terms of its flora and fauna, including some of the greatest diversity in tree and fern varieties in East Africa.

But Bwindi is particularly famous for its mountain gorillas. The national park is home to almost half of the mountain gorillas left in the world. The park is also home to chimpanzees, the African elephant and many different bird species.

The Okavango Delta in Botswana

In Botswana, you’ll find one of the largest wetlands in the world, the Okavango Delta, in the middle of the Kalahari Desert.

Every year in the dry season, the area is flooded with water flowing from the mountains of Angola to the Okavango River, which bursts its banks to create what we know as the Okavango Delta.

Many plant and animal species live here, including almost 500 different species of birds and 130 kinds of mammals, among them some of the world’s most endangered species such as the rhinoceros, the wild dog and the cheetah. Then delta is also one of the best places in Africa to see elephants.

The Great Rift Valley in Kenya

In the Great Rift Valley area of Kenya, you will find Lake Nakuru which, along with Lake Bogoria and Lake Elmentaita, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The lakes are an important source of food for up to 4 million small flamingos and one of the largest densities of birds in the world. Besides the birds, the area is also visited for its relatively large population of black rhinos

Selous Game Reserve in Tanzania

The 50,000 km2 Selous Game Reserve in Tanzania is Africa’s largest wildlife sanctuary.

The area, which is relatively untouched, offers great diversity in terms of its flora and fauna. There are, for example, more than 2,100 different plant species, and a large number of elephants, black rhinos, wild dogs, hippos, crocodiles and buffaloes also live here.

Tanzania’s largest river, the Rufiji, flows through Selous, making the reserve ideal for both water and land safaris.
