New Bucket List Travel Destination: Africa

So I just finished Chelsea Handlers new book, "Uganda Be Kidding Me," which was a hilarious recount of her many vacations she went on with friends and the hilarity that ensues. The first half of the book chronicles her travels to three different African safaris with her girlfriends and it got me thinking about how amazing of an experience that must have been. Prior to reading that, Africa was never really on my radar of places I would want to visit, but to see the adventures she got to experience really changed my views.
Even as a little girl I've always loved animals. My parents always had different nature shows on in the house and for a long time I was obsessed with Planet Earth (I still kinda am...). I've been lucky enough to visit various aquariums and zoos, including the amazing Kilimanjaro Safari in Disney's Animal Kingdom where I got to see lions, tigers and bears (oh my) up close. But I feel like all those experiences fails to compare with a authentic safari in Africa. Also, does anyone else sometimes get a bad feeling about zoos? I always feel bad for the animals, being cooped up away from the homes they really belong in. So of course being the crazy person I am, I started researching real safaris available in Africa. Obviously they don't come cheap but to view these creatures in their natural habitat would be a once in the lifetime opportunity. 

Have you been to Africa?
