Due to the travel restrictions in place right now, going on a safari vacation isn’t possible for most of us. The next best thing is experiencing safaris virtually as you’ll actually be able to see animals act naturally in the wild. These are the five best virtual safari tours to enjoy from your living room.
Ol Pejeta Conservancy, Kenya
Home of the world’s two last northern white rhinos and the largest black rhino sanctuary in East Africa, Ol Pejeta, is a place worth checking out. They’re currently offering daily programs which include safari drives, the morning routines of the northern white rhinos, walking with the anti-poaching tracker dogs, and participating in a workout with the armed rangers.
Djuma Private Reserve, South Africa
WildEarth does a daily live broadcast from this reserve located in Sabi Sands, South Africa. Sit back and enjoy the safari rides from the comfort of your own couch and you’ll see lions, wild dogs, elephants, and leopards.
Tau Game Lodge, South Africa
The live webcam, which broadcasts 24 hours a day, overlooks the waterhole at Tau Game Lodge in South Africa’s Madikwe Game Reserve. You’ll see tons of wildlife including hyena, rhinos, and elephants.
Chobe Game Lodge, Botswana
Overlooking the Chobe River, check out the water birds, giraffes, and buffalo crossing over the river. There are two live webcams, so you won’t miss anything.
Tanda Tula, South Africa
Tandu Tula, located in the Timbavati Private Game Reserve, is a luxury camp and they’re posting drives on their YouTube channel a couple of times a week. So far, the episodes have shown a leopard with her cubs, a pangolin, rhinos, and elephants.
