2.     Tanzania

Safari is on everyone's bucket list and with 2022 being a booming year for Tanzania, you shouldn't miss out on this amazing destination in 2023. While the river crossing is the most famous time of the great migration, the calving season shouldn't be overlooked. The calving season lasts between December - March and will be happening in South Serengeti and might just be a personal favorite. The country turns green after the short rain season, and with the many wildebeest calves and zebra foals, there will be lots of predators waiting for their next prey, the circle of life at its best. Fancy a fun activity in Tanzania? Why not go out for a bike tour in Mto wa Mbu village, visit the coffee plantations and waterfalls at the foot of Mount Meru or Mount Kilimanjaro, or enjoy a balloon flight over the Serengeti early morning? Want to be more active? Consider climbing the highest free-standing mountain on earth and the roof of Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro. After your adventure-filled time on the mainland, end your trip with a beautiful stay at the beaches of Zanzibar or Pemba.
