There is genuinely no more enriching a travel experience than going on safari. To stand in the plains of East Africa watching a family of elephants at play, or a pride of lions at rest is simply jaw-dropping. Spend two weeks surrounded by rich, exciting nature staying in luxurious camps and allow your connection to the natural world become rock solid.
The whole plan for safari is to try and see the Big 5 - lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard and rhino and there is nowhere in Africa where you are more likely to find them all. While the Big 5 are a highlight, every day will be filled with a riot of birdlife, from giant kingfishers to huge flamboyance of flamingos. You can see cheetah gracefully stalking the plains, black mambas lying across the road to warm themselves in the morning and huge crocodiles lazing in the waterholes. The abundance of wildlife is absolutely staggering.
From the plains of Masai Mara and Amboseli to the extraordinary biosphere of the Ngorongoro crater, you will traverse ever-changing landscapes in search of that ‘perfect’ photo, guided at all times by your expert ranger and tracker. Each night you will lie in your luxury lodge surrounded by the calls of hyenas, the occasional deep-booming roar of a lion and feel more alive and connected than you ever have before.
While upon arrival you will stay in a centrally located hotel, the rest of your trip will find you staying in luxury camps dotted across Kenya and Tanzania. These oases in the middle of the wilderness have been hand-picked for their quality and service. Every room and private lodge you stay in will be immaculately decorated rooms, with your own terrace where you can truly relax after a day of incredible adventure.
