African Safari Tour Specialist SafariBooking.Com conducted a two year survey that revealed Tanzania as Best African Safari Destination beating countries like Botswana, Kenya and South Africa.
Tanzania’s world class tourist attractions and wildlife resource has long been the charm for millions of tourists so it was not unexpected when the East African country scored 4.8 out of 5 stars in reviews from more than 1000 safari and industry experts.
A statement from SafariBookings noted “More than half of the safari travellers have undertaken multiple safaris and have a good idea about what’s offered. This secures the fact that Tanzania deserves this top spot. Tanzania was rated the best tourism spot because it is home to two of the most famous safari destinations in the world, the Serengeti National Park and the Ngorongoro Crater”.
