The appeal of an adventure in wildlife is something avid tourists have enjoyed in since the nineteenth century. Journeying to a faraway country to experience the beauty of African wildlife it their natural habitat is interesting, exciting and adrenaline pumping. The trips can be dangerous, but if you follow the instructions of your guide and are respectful of the wildlife, you should have a pleasant experience.

King of the African Grasslands

The African plains are renowned for being one of the most dangerous places in the world in terms of wildlife. The harsh climate combined with animals in their natural habitats make it an extremely hazardous choice of travel destination. Africa is home to the lion, nature’s “king of the jungle” (or more accurately, king of the grasslands). The lion is feared for its size, demeanour and speed, but it is still a glorious sight to witness a lion.

Awe-inspiring Black Mamba

The Black Mamba is another fatally dangerous animal that calls sub-Saharan Africa its home. This snake is ranked in the top 3 most venomous snakes in the world and is highly feared across Africa as one of the many extremely dangerous snakes that inhabit the area.

Adorably Deadly

The threatening African plains also house rhinoceroses and hippopotamuses. Both large, sturdy mammals appear calm and secluded (as most wildlife might) but are known for their ability to unassumingly attack people who are in the wrong place at the right time. The misconception of these animals being “cute” is perhaps true in terms of visuals, but their tempers and strength are far from adorable.

Although revered as dangerous and exhilarating, the African landscape remains a destination of awe. The wildlife that lives there states its threat blatantly as a force to be reckoned with. But there is no room left for doubt that it is one of the most beautiful dangerous places in the world.
