Great Migration & Beach Tour

When you think of a classic African safari, there is no place that comes to mind quite like the great plains of Serengeti and Masai Mara. During this all-inclusive safari we will stay within all of the major parks of Kenya and Tanzania where we hope to witness the famous migration of wildebeest as they thunder across the Talek and Mara Rivers. From the golden grass plains of the Serengeti and Masai Mara, to the lush volcanic vegetation of the Ngorongoro Crater. Plus, we will discover more of the unique attractions of East Africa, like two nights in the heart of the Great Rift Valley, in search of its famed flocks of migrating flamingos, relaxing at the shore of Africa’s largest lake, Lake Victoria, and kicking back on the tropical island of Zanzibar
