    Wonder beckons

    There’s a very good reason why East Africa is such an attractive destination to those who dream of an African adventure.

    With a sublime climate, sprawling grasslands that are quite unlike anywhere else; not to mention wildlife so riveting that it’s spawned a thousand documentaries, East Africa is simply a safari mecca. From the lush grasslands of Kenya and Tanzania, to the unique natural wonders of the Ngorongoro Crater, from the world-famous Masai Mara to the equally enthralling Tarangire, this region is perfect for long game drives and fascinating bush walks. Furthermore on this itinerary such excursions are elegantly balanced by involving and heart-warming cultural experiences, and sightings of some of the region’s other splendours, including Victoria Falls and Mount Kilimanjaro.
