Local wildlife and local culture await in Kenya and Tanzania
The vast grasslands of East Africa support the largest concentration of wildlife in the world. Over 12 days you'll get among the massive herds and their predators in an overland truck and 4x4's with our expert local leaders at the helm. From Nairobi, travel to the waters of lakes Elementeita and Nakuru, then take in quintessential, breath-taking Africa in the Masai Mara, the Serengeti, and the magificent Ngorongoro Crater – all filled with iconic vistas and animals. Enjoy plenty of included game drives and walks to spot the local inhabitants – lions, cheetahs, elephants and more. There is nothing quite like staying in the heart of these incredible national reserves, returning to a welcoming camp after days exploring the plains with guides who have grown up on this land, and falling alseep to the sounds of east Africa. This is an unforgettable journey.

East Africa Discovery, July 2018
To make sure that you check the time of year you going and the temperatures as I felt that this was a little short on information. Otherwise Africa was more than I every expected to be. Just Loved it and we did at no time have more then 12 people> the small groups are just fantastic.

East Africa Discovery, August 2018
Overall, the agenda was a very good, and provided an excellent insight into a very interesting part of Africa. Unfortunately we could not do the Zanzibar leg of the trip because of time constraints. However, the animal drives were great and gave us excellent photo opportunities and a great insight into the day to day lives of Africa people.
