Are you prepared for an adventurous expedition this spring break? If you’re bored with the standard beaches and resort venues in the country’s most-visited spring break destinations, it might be time to set your sights beyond borders. A luxury African safari may be just what you need to explore and enjoy some diversity, complete with elegant accommodations, unique wildlife and safaris, pristine nature reserves, and flexible tours. Luxury African safari travelers can experience a side of Africa that very few experience; privately owned safari sites are a tourist haven year round, and spring break packages are available to make booking a breeze. Here are just a few of the top luxury safaris perfect for your spring break vacation this year:
Schedule a private 8-day trip to Kenya for an African vacation to remember. Drive your jeep up from Nairobi to North Kenya, then tour through the Samburu mountain lodge and nearby Laikipia. Nairobi is the departure point for almost all Kenyan turs and trips, and is one of the most modern and fastest growing cities in East Africa. Accommodations over this tour take place in Mount Kenya, Naironi; Samburu Nature Reserve; and finishes in Abedere, one of the area’s lush and most populated wildlife regions.

If your budget and schedule can handle a 20-day excursion, pick a package that takes in a whole trip from Kenya to Tanzania. Another package offered by www.graduatetours.com, this luxury safari offers only the best picks of Africa and surrounding areas in Laikipia, Masai Mara, Serengeti, Nogorongoro, Manyara, and Zanzibar. Visiotrs are on the lookout for Africa’s famous Big Five: lions, leopards, elephants, buffalo, and rhinoceros are considered the most sought after from the area. You’re sure to find them along one of the many game drives, but if not, the crater tours, a spice tour, and plenty of lodge activities will have you enjoying the safari lifestyle in no time!
An acclaimed ecotourism site, Sabi Sabi in South Africa offers a beautiful climate, rolling hills and deserts, and colonial accommodations.
