1. Go on an African Safari
There are few bucket list items more iconic than the classic African safari. The opportunity to see rhinoceroses hiding in dense thickets, Springbok antelope racing across the landscape, and leopards stalking their prey is an incredible experience. The Big 5 are only the beginning - you'll want to spot the lions, elephants, buffalo, leopards, and rhinos, of course, but also giraffes, hyenas, zebras, cheetahs, hippos, wildebeest, crocodiles, and an amazing array of beautiful birds like the stately grey crowned crane and the colorful lilac-breasted roller.
