East Africa Wildlife Holiday

On this wildlife based holiday we travel through Kenya's beautiful Rift Valley discovering Lake Naivasha, Crescent Island Nature Reserve and the shores of Lake Victoria. We explore the vast gamelands of the Masai Mara in search of elephant, lion, leopard, cheetah, buffaloe and rhino. We discover the impressive Ngorongoro Crater and meet Masai warriors, Hadzabi bushmen and the Datoka tribe at Lake Eyasi. We also relax on the shores of the Indian Ocean on the spice island of Zanzibar and explore the historical Stone Town.

Tour Highlights

  • Masai Mara & Serengeti - Game viewing in the most iconic and prolific national parks in Africa.
  • Ngorongoro Crater - The world's largest intact caldera, home to rhino, leopard and giraffe.
