This unforgettable 15-day adventure features the very best of East Africa, from legendary big game action in Tanzania’s Serengeti and Kenya’s Masai Mara, to gorilla trekking and cultural encounters in Uganda.

Begin your safari at the foot of the Great Rift Valley, on the shores of Lake Manyara. The lake dominates the landscape, which is home to richly diverse habitats - forest, wetland, floodplain and woodland - that support an impressive variety of wildlife, from tree-climbing lions to flocks of flamingos.

Your next stop is the Serengeti’s rolling grasslands, the quintessential African setting where wildebeest and zebra, buffalo, elephant, giraffe and gazelle roam free. Statuesque Maasai herdsmen watch over their cattle, looking out for Africa’s big cats and other predators. When you cross the border into Kenya and the Masai Mara, you remain in the same ecosystem but the ‘Mara’ has a distinct Out of Africa ambience. It’s here that a million wildebeest and zebra begin their annual Migration, following the summer rains and sweet grasses into the southern Serengeti, along a soft curve west and then north across treacherous rivers, returning to the Mara. Enjoy classic safari experiences: game drives, hot-air balloon flights and cultural encounters.

Your journey continues to Uganda’s vast green swathe of rainforest that covers the Rift Valley mountains. Gorilla trekking has contributed directly to saving the mountain gorillas from extinction and is an exceptional wildlife encounter that belongs on every bucket list. Explore this teeming ecosystem, home to the great apes and almost a dozen other primate species and about 350 bird species.
