See springbok and elephants on safari holidays in Kenya

People hoping to see an array of animals on a wildlife excursion may like to head to Kenya.

In a piece for the Calgary Herald, John and Sandra Nolan recount seeing a variety of beasts close-up on safari holidays in the Tsavo Game Reserve, such as elephants, giraffes, zebras, baboons, hyenas, springbok, warthogs and ostriches.

After their two-hour drive in the region, the pair also explored other parts of Africa in a similar expedition.

This included being only a few metres behind crocodiles and hippos in South Africa and they also visited Richard's Bay in the country.

What's more, they saw a variety of spices, including clove and nutmeg, in Zanzibar, just off the coast of Tanzania.

This comes after Brian Jackman, writing for the Telegraph, recommended that those who want to spot a wide variety of animals on safari should head to Tanzania, pointing out carnivores will "steal the show" in the Singita Grumeti Reserve.
