All you need to know about National Park Tours

The most popular park is the Great Smoky Mountains with 11,421,200 visits.

What are the most beautiful national parks?

There are dozens of breathtaking national parks around the world. Some of our favourite national parks holidays include exploring amongst the giant sequoia trees of Yosemite, the hot springs and alpine forests of Yellowstone and the awe-inspiring Grand Canyon. We also love the ancient landscapes of the Serengeti, the burning sunsets of the Maasai Mara and the wild bushland of Kruger National Park.

Where can you see wildlife in Africa?

Africa’s national parks are the top places to see wildlife, from the iconic Big Five to the rarer species. Some of the best national parks for wildlife spotting are the Serengeti in Tanzania, Kruger in South Africa, Etosha in Namibia, the Maasai Mara in Kenya and Gonarezhou in Zimbabwe. You can visit all of these destinations with Trafalgar’s national park tours.

Which national parks are free?

There are several entrance fee-free days to the US national parks, but you can also find some national parks that are free to enter all year round. These include the Great Smoky Mountains in Tennessee and North Carolina, Cumberland Gap in Virginia, Channel Islands National Park in California, North Cascades National Park in Washington, and Biscayne National Park in Florida.
