Journey to East Africa

East Africa is where safari began – or at least that’s what they’ll tell you when you go there. And go there you should – it’s an amazing region that’s been captivating travellers for decades, and still offers a great many new experiences.

Whether you want to go gorilla trekking or float above the Great Wildebeest Migration in a hot air balloon, East Africa is the place to go. The scenery is incredibly diverse, and especially outside the most popular parks and reserves, you could find that you have huge swathes of wilderness practically to yourself.

East African lodges and tented camps offer attentive service, fascinating history and all the creature comforts you could wish for. That means you can focus on getting perfect pictures or sharing stories around a campfire with Maasai or Samburu warriors.  

East Africa has its natural highs – like the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro – but no lows, unless you count diving in the Indian Ocean or descending into the ‘lost world’ of the Ngorongoro Crater. This is a region that has so much to offer, whatever your interests. Stay on a coffee plantation and enjoy the best cup you’ll ever taste or set sail on a dhow to watch the sunset. Look for the Samburu ‘special five’ or watch wildebeest dodge between lions and crocodiles – it’s all there for you.
