Tanzania is the ideal beach and bush destination. With more safari options than you can count to ending off a safari on one of the many beaches off the coast of Zanzibar. Tanzania is a visual masterpiece home to Africa's highest mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro, to the never ending plains of the Serengeti where guests can be treated to viewing the great migration, where millions of animals such as wildebeest, zebra and gazelles take part in one of the greatest spectacles on earth as they migrate from the Serengeti to the Maasai Mara. Tanzania is also home to some wonderful luxury safari lodges, having all the ingredients to make a once-in-a-lifetime experience.


Without a doubt one of the most iconic safari destinations in Africa, and for a good reason: This is where the safari originated. With friendly people, incredible game viewing and scenery they have perfected the safari experience over the years. Kenya is probably best known for being home to the Maasai Mara, which plays host to the great migration for a few months each year, but Kenya offers a lot more than that, from idillic coastline, viewing some of the biggest elephants in the world at Amboselli National Park to visiting Tsavo National Park which is one of the world's biggest game sanctuaries.



Tucked between two of the most famous safari destinations in the world, Rwanda is a small country that offers some of the best primate viewing in the world. Although Rwanda has had a turbulent political history, it is now a safe and friendly destination for tourists to visit. Best known for its large population of mountain gorillas, of which Rwanda now has more than half of the world's population, you also have the opportunity of seeing other primates, such as Sykes, Golden Monkeys and chimpanzees. Coupled with the over 300 bird species you are in for a real treat if you add Rwanda onto your next Africa trip. With its close proximity to the above mentioned Kenya and Tanzania, its the perfect option to add diversity to more traditional safari options.


Once viewed as the best place in Africa to go on a safari, Uganda has an abundance of wildlife. Their remote, untamed reserves teams with large mammals such as lions, elephant and buffalo. Their forest is home to the endangered chimpanzees and mountain gorillas which are conserved by the fees raised from trekking levies paid for by tourists. The most famous forest reserve found in Uganda is the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, an ancient forest that extends over a number of hills in the Virunga Volcanoes mountain range, this park is home to roughly half of the world's gorilla population and with a name like "impenetrable forest" you know that you are in for an adventure when visiting Uganda.
