Since time began, the wild creatures of the vast Serengeti Plains meet, mingle and march together. When the rains cease and the landscape withers, millions of herbivores begin the slow procession northward, toward the promise of water and sweet new grasses. With their own promise of a moveable feast, the carnivores tag along, darting through the shadows in search of the too old, too young or too slow. This is the great migration – the Greatest Show on Earth.

Our adventure starts with set down in Kilimanjaro, gateway to safari country and shadowed under the soaring peaks of famed Mount Kilimanjaro. From our Arusha base, we venture out into game country for (hopefully) a glimpse of the fabled tree climbing lions of Lake Manyara.

Appetites duly whetted, move on to the fabulous Ngorongoro Crater – one of the natural wonders of the world. The vast floor of the collapsed caldera is a bountiful home to a huge permanent population of wildlife and we enjoy a day traversing the crater floor.

Winging west, we arrive into the heart of the Serengeti; a vast open savannah that always delivers superb game viewing experiences. The isolated camps surprise with luxurious amenities, delectable cuisine and friendly staff. You’ll always remember the evenings around the campfire, chatting with new friends and then falling to sleep as the Serengeti bush sings its night-time lullaby.

Consider staying a little longer and relaxing on the exotic island of Zanzibar. Or add some more thrilling wildlife days in Kenya.
