How many 'Best country for ...' lists can one nation find themselves on? Canada breaks the ranks of countless top 10 lists -- livability, peacefulness, cleanliness, education. Although it's well appreciated, quality of life isn't what brings most travelers to the Great White North. Canada is the second largest nation in the world, far too vast to take in all at once. Urban hotspots compete with nature's bounty to see which can reel in the most admirers. Favorite destinations include the majestic Rocky Mountains around Banff and Lake Louise, posh ski resorts like Whistler and Blackcomb, the sophisticated Francophone cities of Montreal or Quebec City, or hipness personified in Vancouver or Toronto.

Canada's immense diversity. Stay at an Inuit lodge in Nunavut or dog-mush through the Yukon to view the aurora borealis. Sip high tea in Victoria on Vancouver Island or tap your toes at a Gaelic Céilidh on Nova Scotia's Cape Breton Island. Or, enjoy history and activity in one: sail tall ships through the Maritime Provinces or join in the rodeo at the 90-year-old Calgary Stampede.
The gargantuan size of Canada means that its climate varies greatly from province to province, and the best time to visit really depends on how you plan to spend your vacation. If you’re hoping to ski at the country’s world-class resorts, winter is the obvious choice; but if you’re more interested in cultural activities and exploring national parks on foot, summer (late June to August) is a good bet, though you’ll pay higher prices for accommodations and bump elbows with other picture-happy tourists. Spring (mid-March to mid-June) and autumn (mid-September to mid-November) will give you a better bang for your buck, fairer weather, and fewer fellow tourists.

Most women felt that "it's very safe up here" and there's "nothing to avoid." When it comes to a night out, "the bars are about like the States... Not as much worry about date rape drugs, though."

Low risk
Canada is 'very safe' with 'no homophobia'. Toronto and its 'village' is a 'veritable haven for LGBTQ' and there is a general 'friendly atmosphere' in 'Montreal specifically'.

7 Day Safari (Lake Manyara / Serengeti Plains / Ngorongoro Crater / Tarangire)
http://www.africaserengetisafaris.com

Day 1 - Arusha - Lake Manyara
Non game-viewing travel time: 2½ hours
Distance: 130 km
Pick up from Arusha and transfer to Lake Manyara National Park. We arrive in time for lunch at the lodge and after lunch we head into the Lake Manyara National Park for an afternoon game drive. This national park is one of Tanzania's most dramatically located wildlife areas, consisting of a massive but shallow soda lake (covering two-thirds of the park), located at the foot of the Great Rift Valley's western escarpment. The park's varied habitat attracts a wide variety of animals, including one of Africa's largest concentrations of elephants, Lake Manyara's unique tree-climbing lions, as well as large flocks of flamingos attracted by the algae in the lake.
Dinner and overnight as per the standard and type of accommodation option requested.

Day 2 - Lake Manyara National Park - Serengeti Plains
Non game-viewing travel time: 6 hours
Distance: 205 km
After breakfast we head towards the Serengeti National Park, via the beautiful high lying farmland of Karatu and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Leaving the highlands behind, we descend into the heart of wild Africa - the Serengeti National Park - with its endless plains, rolling into the distance as far as the eye can see. We head to the central park area, known as the Seronera area, one of the richest wildlife habitats in the park, featuring the Seronera River, which provides a valuable water source to this area and therefore attracts wildlife well representative of most of the Serengeti's species. We arrive in time for lunch and enjoy an afternoon game drive in the Serengeti National Park.
Dinner and overnight in the Seronera area, as per the standard and type of accommodation option requested.

Day 3 - Serengeti Plains
Be one of only a few fortunate people to glide in a Hot Air Balloon over the Serengeti Plains (available at supplementary cost by pre-arrangement). Floating silently above the awakening bush, while spotting wildlife and enjoying the amazing scenery of Africa, across rivers and over numerous small villages.
We do an after breakfast game viewing drive along the Sogore River Circuit, which loops into the plains south of the Seronera River, and which is good for possible lion, Thomson gazelle, topi, ostrich and cheetah sightings. The visitor's centre not far from the Serengeti Seronera Lodge and public campsites, is well worth a visit after the morning's game drive. This nicely designed centre, offers some interesting wildlife displays as well as a gift shop selling information leaflets and maps of the area. The centre also has a shop where cold drinks and snacks can be purchased, as well as a picnic area and information trail up and around a nearby kopje. We will enjoy a relaxed picnic lunch at the centre in the shade of the giant acacia trees.
In the afternoon we will follow the Kopjes Circuit, which goes anti-clockwise around the Maasai Kopjes, which usually attract a number of lion and some formidably large cobras. Kopjes are weathered granite outcrops, scattered around the plains, most of which are miniature ecosystems, providing shade and drinking water in pools left in the rock after the rains. This makes the kopjes particularly good for spotting wildlife in the dry seasons - including lions, which like to lie in wait for animals coming to drink!
Dinner and overnight in the Seronera area, as per the standard and type of accommodation option requested.

Day 4 - Serengeti Plains - Ngorongoro Crater
Non game-viewing travel time: 4 hours
Distance: 145 km
After breakfast at the lodge do we depart to Ngorongoro Conservation area. We will stopover at Olduvai Gorge, boasting with a history dating back to the dawn of time. It was here, that the anthropologists Drs. Lois and Mary Leakey discovered the skulls of the'Nutcracker Man' and 'Handy Man', both very significant links in the chain of human evolution.
We arrive in time for lunch at the lodge and spend the afternoon at leisure.
Dinner and overnight as per the standard and type of accommodation option requested on the crater rim, no accommodation available inside the crater.

Day 5 - Ngorongoro Crater
After breakfast we descend 600m into this magnificent crater for a full-day game drive. The Ngorongoro Crater is one of the most densely crowded African wildlife areas in the world and is home to an estimated 30,000 animals including some of Tanzania's last remaining black rhino. Supported by a year round water supply and fodder, the Ngorongoro National Park supports a vast variety of animals, which include herds of wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, eland, warthog, hippo, and giant African elephants. Another big draw card to this picturesque national park is its huge population of predators, which include lions, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs and the ever-elusive leopard. We will enjoy a picnic lunch on the crater floor.
Dinner and overnight as per the standard and type of accommodation option requested on the crater rim, no accommodation available inside the crater.

Day 6 - Ngorongoro Crater - Tarangire National Park
Non game-viewing travel time: 3½ hours
Distance: 155 km
After breakfast we depart for the Tarangire National Park. The park runs along the line of the Tarangire River and is mainly made up of low-lying hills on the Great Rift Valley floor. Its natural vegetation mainly consists of Acacia woodland and giant African Baobab trees, with huge swamp areas in the south. Both the river and the swamps act like a magnet for wild animals, during Tanzania's dry season. The Tarangire National Park is reputed to contain some of the largest elephant herds in Africa. This African National Park is also home to three rare species of animals - the Greater Kudu, the Fringed-eared Oryx, as well as a few Ashy Starlings. After a picnic lunch we do an afternoon game drive.
Dinner and overnight in the Tarangire National Park area, as per the standard and type of accommodation option requested.

Day 7 - Tarangire National Park - Arusha
Non game-viewing travel time: 2 hours
Distance: 120 km
We enjoy an early morning game drive in the Tarangire National Park, followed by breakfast at the lodge. We will then transfer back to Arusha. Upon arrival in Arusha will we have lunch and then we will end our African safari adventure. The group should tip the guide around $20 a day. You will be taken to your hotel, which ends our safari services.

Beautiful and amazing country with some strange laws, if you're from the US. Want a beer in BC? find a liquor store.

Oh Canada! Known for its niceness for the most part Canada lives up to it's reputation. Fairly low-key and really like a calmer, colder, little cousin to America. Peaceful Canada our friends the north.

Oh Canada. The country richest in its natural resources, boasts over 1 million lakes and over 50% covered in forests, Canada is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful country in the world. With four distinct seasons, the country changes its colors and characters as the seasons comes and go. The home of the natural wonders - Canadian Rockies, Niagara Falls, and the gorgeous cities - Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal. The heavy influence of European culture still lingers and is well preserved in some parts of the country. Canada also has one of the most diverse group of people and perhaps the friendliest you'll find anywhere.

Canada to me is an extension of the United States. No offense to anyone. Same language and a good amount of ethnic diversity (in Vancouver), I felt very comfortable and at times I completely forgot I was in another country. It's a nice place to visit.
