East Africa Best Safari -Big 5 Safari
If there’s one thing Africa does better than anywhere else in the world, it’s wildlife and there are few wildlife experiences that can beat the undiluted thrill of a face-to-face encounter with a member of Africa’s Big 5.
Our Big 5 safari destinations range widely and we advise planning carefully with your safari expert to ensure your expectations are met. Safari first-timers would do well to choose Tanzania’s Ngorongoro Crater or private Kruger reserves such as the Sabi Sands which deliver virtually faultless Big 5 safaris where you’re more than likely to tick off each of the Big 5 after a couple of game drives.
Africa Luxury Safari
East Africa Best Safari -African safari vacations were born in the Golden Age of luxury travel and the ideals of that era are still very much alive. Africa’s best luxury safari tours feature warm, personal service, fine wine and dining, and quality creature comforts, all delivered in some of the world’s wildest settings where you can soak up the scenic natural beauty and witness the cycle of life’s raw drama play out between predator and prey.
Africa will delight and surprise you – it’s not uncommon for the top luxury lodges to enrich your safari with unexpected flourishes: a scented, steaming bath awaiting you after an evening game drive, an alfresco dinner in a candlelit grove serenaded by nightjars, or a champagne breakfast served on the vast savannah plains overlooking the great herds of zebra, wildebeest and delicate antelope.
Wildebeest Migration Safari
Natural phenomena occur all over the world but few can compete with the annual Masai Mara/Serengeti wildebeest migration. The numbers alone are hard to believe: up to two million animals – wildebeest as well as zebra and gazelles – move clockwise around this enormous ecosystem, driven by ancient instincts to find fresh grazing and water.
It’s drama on a truly epic scale: the migrating herds undergo all manner of challenges and hardships as they move from region to region, and are constantly under attack from predators, none more so than from Africa’s big cats and the notoriously huge crocodiles that lie in wait at various river crossing points.
