Tanzania

If you want to try some different safaris, you have to start with a legendary African safari. There are a number of countries you can choose from, ranging from South Africa to Botswana.

Argentina

Argentina might not be the first place you think of for a safari, but there’s a lot to see there. It’s not the foremost country for wildlife. However, there are some beautiful animals to spot. You can see flamingos, alpacas and llamas, hummingbirds and the majestic condor. If you’re incredibly lucky, you might even be able to spot a puma. There’s more to Argentina apart from the animals, though, such as the glaciers and stretching grass plains. If you’re a vegetarian, Argentina may not be the best destination for you. Meat features very heavily in daily life.

India

If lions are the big cat to search for in Africa, then tigers are the ones to look for in India. There are also a couple of animals you’ll find in both countries, albeit as different species. You can spot both elephants and rhinos on an Indian safari, as well as a medley of other animals and birds. The country has over 80 national parks, which are perfect for planning your trip. If you’re looking for tigers, head to Kerala. At the Periyar Tiger Reserve, you can see elephants, leopards and giant squirrels. India is excellent for birdwatchers too, and if you’re lucky you’ll see a kingfisher.

Brazil

The huge country of Brazil has a diverse landscape, from the dense forest of the Amazon to the world’s largest wetlands. While Africa has its collection of Big 5 animals, Brazil has one too. Their special species are tapirs, giant anteaters, giant river otters, maned wolves and jaguars.

If you want to go on a safari, don’t limit yourself to Africa. You have other options to give you a chance to see different scenery and animals.
