When to go

The best time for a safari in Kenya is one of the dry seasons, between June and October as well as January and February.  The famous wildebeest herds are in the Maasai Mara in September and October.

tanzania

Serengeti

Grasslands as far as the eye can see, predators galore and home to that dazzling spectacle of the wildebeest migration.  A must see for any visitor to Tanzania.


Ngorongoro Crater

From the moment you descend into this virtual Noah's Ark of Africa, the caldera of the Ngorongoro and its myriad wildlife will keep you spellbound.


Lake Manyara

Tree-climbing lions and millions of flamingos are the stars of this small but rewarding park which supports one of the highest densities of mammals in the world.


Tarangire

In the dry season (June through October), large herds of elephants, wildebeest, zebra and other herbivores dot the ever-changing landscape.  In addition there are epic stands of baobab trees.


Kilimanjaro

Africa's highest mountain is yours for the climbing.  Hike through rain forest, alpine meadows and high-altitude deserts to the peak and see why this is called the Roof of Africa.


Zanzibar

Get lost in the magical jumble of cobbled alleyways of Stone Town, delight your senses on a tour of the spice plantations or relax on the stunning white-sand, palm-fringed beaches of the Indian Ocean.


Selous

Africa's largest wildlife reserve is remote and sees few visitors.  Yet wildlife viewing is unparalleled, both from the water, from a vehicle as well as on foot.  It is the place to come for a true "Out of Africa" experience.

Game Drives

The best way to see wildlife is from your vehicle, with a guide who will explain everything there is to know about the animals you see.

Out of Africa

Fans of Out of Africa are familiar with a tented camp.  Stay here for an intimate bush experience and feel at one with nature.


The Great Migration

Between November and August, massive herds of wildebeest and zebra are present in the Serengeti.  As they cross rivers, crocodiles and other predators lie in wait to catch them unawares.


Balloon safari

The early morning mists dissolve as the sun comes up and your balloon rises in to the still morning air.  Vast herds of animals roam the plains below.  Is there a better way to experience Africa?


Village visit

Learn about the traditional way of life and spend some time having fun with the children.


Spice Plantation tour

Learn about Zanzibar's spices: cloves, black pepper, cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and lemongrass, and their uses. Top it off with a traditional Zanzibari lunch and you have a day like no other.


African sunsets

There is nothing quite like seeing the sun set over the African plains as wildlife roams all around your vehicle.  Drink in hand, sit back, and let nature inspire you.


Dhow excursion

Sail on a traditional hand-crafted Zanzibari dhow and discover hidden coves and snorkelling spots.  Enjoy a delicious seafood lunch.  What better way to spend a day on the water!
