East Africa is home to two of Africa’s most popular safari destinations, namely Kenya and Tanzania. Uganda and Rwanda are not far off with life changing gorilla encounters in the rainforests topped up by the tropical beaches of Zanzibar.
East Africa definitely delivers some of the world’s best safari experiences and our team of consultants is happy to share this part of Africa with you through handcrafted itineraries.
Explore rolling grasslands, rich diversity of wildlife, colourful Maasai and Samburu warriors, luxurious lodges and tented camps. Kenya’s world-famous Masai Mara reserve is the setting for the region’s spectacular wildebeest migration between August and November each year, but it boasts one of the most diverse resident wildlife populations all year round. Kenya safari highlights include the Amboseli and Samburu wildlife reserves. Kenya combines well with gorilla trekking, tropical islands like the Seychelles, and Tanzania’s top reserves. Visitors are warmly welcomed and the infrastructure is excellent, especially the network of airports serving the far-flung reserves via the international air hubs of Nairobi and Dar es Salaam.
We have carefully crafted East African safaris options with stays in a wide range of camps from budget to luxury. Tanzania’s Serengeti and Kenya’s Masai Mara host the annual Great Migration, a unique spectacle that takes place as thousands of herds of wildebeests and zebras follow the fresh grazing that sprouts after as the annual rains kick in. Visit the Ngorongoro Crater, formed by the collapse of an extinct volcano, where more than 30,000 animals thrive in enclosed grassland, Tanzania or experience a life changing safari in Uganda, where chimpanzees and mountain gorillas live free in the forests. Track a family of gorillas with your expert guide on two days of safari trekking that find you blazing a path through the thick forest and climbing rugged hills. This unique but challenging safari offers an unforgettable way to connect with the endangered mountain gorilla.
