14 Jaw-dropping Photos of African Safari Wildlife

Nature at its most primitive and pure is found only in Africa. Large predators roam the continent's sweeping savannas among massive herds of grazing herbivores, while apes, monkeys and reptiles inhabit its dark, lush forests. Widely regarded as the place where human life originated, Africa is home to the world's best loved and most awe-inspiring animals, as well as to some of its most endangered. Rich and incredible wildlife including lions, wildebeest, zebras, elephants, meerkets, chimpanzees, lemurs and giraffes can be easily spotted on African safari tours, bringing humans closer than ever to the world's most majestic creatures.
