A kaleidoscope of images – from Mount Kilimanjaro to the idyllic beaches of Zanzibar, visit ruins of Swahili city-states and meet a Maasai warrior. A land of boundless fascination, savannah grasslands and shimmering lakes provide the backdrop to herds of zebra, wildebeest, cheetah and gazelle.

The trip was outstanding; truly a life highlight for everyone. Your guides were specialists on animals, birds, plants, the culture, etc. and wonderful with the children, helped us enjoy every hour of our safari and feel safe and happy. All guests may feel this way, but I think our family developed a special relationship with our guides over the trip. One of the most emotional parts for me was hearing about the impact of your support to the Maasai. They are so appreciative of the support and the results were apparent. I can’t wait to get back to Africa. As I sit here in front of my computer, overwhelmed with work and meetings, I remember that just last week we were watching lions hunt zebras in the Mara. Thank you for planning our vacation of a lifetime.Michelle M -

Lake Manyara National Park
Lake Manyara National Park offers a wilderness experience in diverse habitats, from its soda lake to dense woodlands and steep mountainsides. Here, the Great Rift Valley is at its most impressive, with the escarpment dropping down to the lakeshore. The park is known for its unusual tree-climbing lions and vast elephant herds. The shores of the lake attract more than 400 species of birds, including pink flamingo, waterfowl and migrants.
The Ngorongoro Crater, once a gigantic volcano, is the largest intact caldera in the world. Some maintain that before it erupted, it would have been higher than Mount Kilimanjaro. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, it offers a unique biosphere, which has remained virtually unchanged since the dawn of time. The ancient caldera shelters one of the most beautiful wildlife havens on earth.
Serengeti National Park
Serengeti National Park forms part of a huge conservation area, including the adjacent Ngorongoro Conservation Area, as well as the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya. Huge numbers of wildlife move freely throughout this area. The Serengeti and the adjacent Masai Mara are best known for hosting the annual Great Migration of wildebeest, during which nearly two million animals move across the plains and woodlands. Often called the greatest wildlife spectacle on earth, this dramatic event is triggered by annual rainfall patterns that determine the availability of grazing. Tens of thousands of animals follow the seasonal rains, crossing both the Grumeti and Mara Rivers in their search for fresh pastures.
Selous National Park
Selous National Park, located in southern Tanzania, is Africa’s largest wildlife area at 21,100 sq. miles. The Rufiji River flows through the northern part of the Selous into the Indian Ocean. The Selous remains one of the least exploited wildlife sanctuaries on the continent.
