Get ready for the adventure of a lifetime — a safari across two African countries, Kenya & Tanzania! Experience elephants, giraffes, wildebeests, rhinos, and other animals you've only seen on TV or in zoos in their natural habitats in 6 East African Parks and Reserves. Our African safari will allow you to immerse yourself in the stunning landscapes, legendary wildlife and rich cultures of Africa. In this small group tour limited to 16-18 participants!

Each day of the tour has a beautiful array of vistas for you to enjoy. Visit beautiful Lake Nakuru and stop at Rift Valley view point. The lake’s abundance of algae used to attract a vast quantity of flamingos that famously lined the shore. There are many other birds that flourish in this area as well as warthogs, baboons, rhinos and other large mammals.

The Masai Mara National Reserve features multiple exciting game drives with your driver guides. This park has an abundance of wildlife. Watch for the big 5 and visit a traditional Maasai manyatta village to experience the culture of this world famous community where the Maasai still live as they have for centuries. Interact with these nomadic people and experience their way of life.

The world famous Serengeti National Park covers an area of 5700 square miles, is Tanzania's oldest park, and one of the world's last great wildlife refuges. The Serengeti ecosystem supports the greatest remaining concentration of plains game in Africa, including more than 2,500 lions and over one million wildebeests.

Descend into the Ngorongoro Crater which is a photographers paradise full of wildlife. In Ngorongoro, you may see lions, elephants, zebra, giraffe, rhino, and many more. Visit the Tarangire River within the National Park which is one of the few places to view animals outside the Serengeti. At Amboseli National Park there are amazing views and hopefully with weather permitting you’ll see breath-taking Mount Kilamanjaro.
