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 and riveting wildlife, East Africa is simply a safari mecca. From the lush grasslands of Kenya and Tanzania, to the unique natural wonders of the Ngorongoro Crater, and the world-famous Masai Mara. This region is perfect for long game drives that are elegantly balanced by heart-warming cultural experiences, and sightings of some of the region’s other splendours, such as Mount Kilimanjaro.
