Out most exhilarating tour...

... experience the plethora of wildlife, including, of course, the Big Five (lion, leopard, elephant, rhino & buffalo), “up close & personal” as you traverse East Africa’s most spectacular game reserves accompanied by knowledgeable and professional local experts. Lake Nakuru, Maasai Mara, Serengeti & Ngorongoro are just some of the areas you will visit – and you’ll witness the Annual Migration, the greatest spectacle on earth. But it’s not all wildlife - in Kenya, discover the diversity of both it’s culture and people (including learning about traditional healing from a local Maasai medicine man), witness the breathtaking landscapes of the Great Rift Valley as well as spending a few days in the cosmopolitan capital of Nairobi. And in Tanzania, after a brief sojourn on the banks of lake Victoria, learn why this country is known as the “cradle of civilization” when you visit the Odulvai Gorge and marvel at the Ngorongoro Crater – the largest caldera in the world and a UNESCO heritage site. 

And after the thrill of your safari – the opportunity to challenge yourself and climb Mt. Kilimanjaro (Machame route) on our eight day optional extension – the tallest free standing peak in the world and the rooftop of Africa.
