This itinerary is designed to not only give you a taste of the best of East Africa but also give you the best chance of catching the famous wildebeest migration. Every year the wildebeest herds move between Kenya's Masai Mara Game Reserve and Tanzania's Serengeti National Park, with the river crossings being one of the most dramatic wildlife spectacles on the planet.
In this trip you will stay in both parks, in Sanctuary Olonana, an award-winning tented camp on a private stretch of the Mara River, where the famous last scene from "Out of Africa" was filmed, and Sanctuary Kichakani Serengeti Camp, a classic tented safari camp which will move around and follow the migration - ensuring you are able to view the migration whatever time of year you travel.
In addition to these, you will get a chance to take in Tarangire National Park, arguably northern Tanzania's most interesting park, famous for the large herds of elephants and spectacular baobab trees. The accommodation throughout is luxurious and the guiding superb. Activities will include game drives, walking safaris and bush meals. Flying between each camp by light aircraft, the transition will be seamless and allow maximum time for exploration and relaxation.
Whatever your budget, our travel experts will work with you and give expert advice to make the very most of your available time and funds. They will guide you on the best time of year to travel, select the best value destinations and secure the little ‘add-ons’ that will make your tailor-made trip that extra bit special.
