Who hasn’t dreamed of glancing across a dry African savannah or standing beneath a jungle canopy, hoping to get a fleeting glimpse of a wild creature we’ve only seen in a zoo?

For more than 30 years, wilderness guide and wildlife photographer Russell Gammon has been helping to fulfill such dreams, planning and leading private and small group safaris to some of Africa’s most iconic destinations. Follow Gammon on a virtual safari through four of his favorite places on the continent. Stop first at Serengeti National Park to follow the greatest large-mammal migration as a megaherd of wildebeest and zebra chase the rains across endless grasslands. Experience the unforgettable sight of the largest population of African elephants on Earth in Botswana’s Okavango delta. Be dazzled by the wild and unique inhabitants on the island of Madagascar, known as Africa’s Galapagos. And visit Gammon’s favorite, the little-known Mana Pools in Zimbabwe. Nestled in the heart of the Lower Zambezi Valley, it is one of Africa’s last true wilderness areas, where the Zambezi River meanders through a paradise that is home to large wildlife populations, including elephants, hippos, and crocodiles.

After this unforgettable journey, just imagine what dreams you’ll have.
