02See the Animals

Many people include on their bucket list seeing elephants, lions, and hippopotamuses in their natural habitat. Thankfully, most corners of southern Africa offer safaris, so it's easy to add one to any trip. If you're going specifically to see the wildlife, the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya is a good choice; the reserve is also home to the famous wildebeest migration. A trek to see the endangered mountain gorillas in Uganda is a good option for adventurous travelers.
