A tender family of elephants, a cheetah that roams around its prey, with its mottled fur that stands out in the crystalline sky. Chobe National Park, located near the city of Kasane in Botswana, is a photographer’s paradise and is also home to the highest concentration of elephants in Africa. Inside, three different areas can be identified by habitat type. The Serondela area, cut by lush plains and teak forests, overlooks the Chobe River and is the most visited area due to its proximity to the spectacular Victoria Falls.

Some people want to spend a beach holiday and a safari together. If that describes you, you should try Tanzania and Zanzibar safaris and a beach vacation. Many travelers choose to combine a Tanzania safari with a maritime extension to Zanzibar, in the Mafia, or to Pemba and Kilwa on the mainland coast. The coast of Tanzania and the islands in front of it are the cradle of a millenary culture, the culture of Swahili, the result of the encounter between Africa and the East, as evidenced by the historic center of Stone Town (the capital of Zanzibar) and the ancient Emporium towns of Bagamoyo and Kilwa have wonderful beaches and warm, clear waters. There are many of the most beautiful beaches in Tanzania, and it would be impossible to make a true ranking to determine the most beautiful of them all, as they are all classified as true miracles. However, it can be said that the most popular sandy stretches are mainly found on the island of Zanzibar.
