East Africa Wildlife Extravaganza

The ultimate way to experience East Africa, one of the most spectacular wildlife destinations in the world! Almost 2 million animals roam the plains of East Africa, but it can be surprisingly hard to find them in the vast area that they cover as their movements are governed by the rains and predicting their location can be a gamble.

This itinerary is designed to include areas frequented by the migration on their annual route. Your small-group guided safari stays in lodges & permanent tented camps. The tour starts and ends in Nairobi and includes the major highlights of Tanzania and Kenya including Amboseli, Lake Manyara, Tarangire, Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti.
