Combining East Africa’s most significant wildlife experiences on one itinerary, this tour opens with gorilla trekking in Uganda’s teeming rainforests before flying you to the savannahs of the Masai Mara in Kenya and the Serengeti in Tanzania to marvel at the Great Wildebeest Migration. Then it is on to the Ngorongoro Crater, home to all of Africa’s Big 5 – lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo – and a host of other animals before finishing with your feet up at a coffee lodge with views of Mount Meru.
Flying between destinations minimises your travelling time and is less tiring than driving. To ensure that the pace stays easy and convenient, there are a couple of overnight breaks at city hotels – a great time to shake the dust out of your boots and catch up with news from home. Your safari accommodation takes the form of small and intimate tented camps in prime game-viewing locations and consists of large and luxurious tents that come complete with en suite bathrooms and outdoor areas to sit back in and soak up the views. You enjoy morning and afternoon game drives and have opportunities to interact with the local community too. Additional activities such as hot-air balloon rides can be arranged.
Rich in experience and biodiversity, this is a tour that will appeal to nature enthusiasts and wildlife photographers. The high standard of accommodation and level of service also means it is also suitable for discerning safari-goers, honeymooners and romantic travellers, too.
