Game drives, Beach-hopping and Wine Tasting in Africa

1 Witness the Great Migration

The scale of the Great Migration is like a trump card for a safari when comparing the best safaris in Africa. An unforgettable experience and every African safari enthusiast’s dream: the Great Migration of Wildebeest from the Serengeti to Masai Mara features first on our list of African adventures. Each year, more than one million wildebeest, zebras, and antelopes cross the border between Tanzania and Kenya.

In search of greener pastures, these beasts traverse a road fraught with danger from crafty big cats and crocodiles lurking in quiet streams. A moving spectacle, the Great Migration aptly illustrates the natural cycle of life and death.

2 Explore the Spice Islands: Zanzibar

Zanzibar’s history as a trading post for spices is as colorful as it is ancient! Stroll through the meandering alleyways of Stone Town, inhale the intoxicating fragrance of exotic spices, and discover the rich heritage and culture of Zanzibar, before you set out for dreamy sundowners on idyllic beaches.


3 Go Gorilla Trekking

African adventures rarely get better than this! The lush forests of Uganda and Rwanda offer the best opportunities to observe wild mountain gorillas in the world! More than half of the world’s population of gorillas live in the volcanic mountains on the border between the two countries.
