About This Holiday

The main focus of this itinerary is to view the seasonal migration of wildebeest & wildlife between the legendary Maasai Mara and Serengeti national parks, followed by a few days of relaxation at an exquisite tropical beach resort.

The astonishing migration of teeming herds of wildebeest (seasonal variations permitting) also includes herds of zebra and buffalo accompanied by the predators: prides of lion, the secretive leopard of the thick bush and the cheetah of the open plains. There are also elephants, giraffe, Thompson’s gazelle, topi and many others.

Wildlife viewing is via comfortable Land Cruisers adapted in East African safari style, with qualified and experienced driver/guides to take guests up close for the best photographic opportunities, or on foot with an armed ranger (or Maasai warrior) to ‘be in the moment’ and experience the wild environment to the fullest.

You will meet the intriguing Maasai people in their colorful traditional dress – red shuka, beaded belt, necklace and sidearm – a decorated machete called the “Sword of a Maasai Warrior”. As a wonderful finale, you are transported to an idyllic beach resort on the legendary spice island of Zanzibar, surely the most exotic and interesting of African islands.
