Lewa Downs Conservancy, Kenya
Lewa Downs is one of Africa’s most impressive private conservation suc­cesses. Established as a rhino sanctu­ary, it has helped return black and white rhinos from the brink of extinc­tion. It also protects endangered Grevy’s zebra and sitatunga. We see these and a multitude of classic African game on safari drives, night drives and bush walks, with Mount Kenya in the distance. Camel and horseback rides are also available.

Amboseli National Park, Kenya
Elephants abound here, and to see these African icons against the backdrop of snow-topped Mount Kilimanjaro is a timeless image of the continent. This mosaic of dry plains and swampy springs is also home to buffalo, wildebeest, zebra, impala, hy­ena, lion, leopard, cheetah and a third of Kenya’s nearly 1,100 bird species.

Masai Mara, Kenya
Kenya’s Masai Mara is the northern portion of the Serengeti Plain. Game drives take us among myriad plains animals, including gazelle, impala, wildebeest, hartebeest, topi, zebra and giraffe. The Mara is famed for its lions, which may be hunting in the morn­ings and evenings and resting under trees during the day. Hyenas are also here in some of the largest numbers in Africa.

Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania
World-famous Ngorongoro Crater of­fers a wildlife encounter in an ancient caldera, home to Africa’s most dense concentration of wildlife, with some 30,000 animals. Twelve miles across, its sheer 2,000-foot walls enclose permanent fresh water, ensuring abundant game. We stay on the cra­ter rim and drive down to often find zebra, wildebeest, eland, gazelles and predators, including lion, leopard and cheetah. We may also see the endangered black rhinoceros.

The Serengeti, Tanzania
Serengeti National Park is one of the oldest and undoubtedly best-known wildlife sanctuaries in the world, unequalled for its natural beauty and scientific value. Two World Heritage Sites and two Biosphere Reserves have been established within this vast region - the Serengeti is truly legendary. Here on Tanzania’s Great Plains, huge herds of wildebeest and zebra traverse the savannah with thousands of ante­lope, gazelle and giraffe, while the big cats race after prey.

Tarangire National Park, Tanzania
Little-visited Tarangire boasts Tanza­nia’s largest concentration of wildlife outside the Serengeti. The Tarangire River courses through the red-dust plains and is the lifeblood for wilde­beest, zebra, buffalo and elephant during the dry season. We also find two rare antelope, the fringe-eared oryx and gerenuk. In the swamps, we may see ground hornbills and Kori bustard, the world’s largest flying bird. Tarangire National Park provide for an intimate experience of the African wild.

Lake Manyara National Park, Tanzania
Lake Manyara National Park covers 127 square miles, of which 89 square miles is covered by the alkaline waters of Lake Manyara, a shallow fresh water lake that is home to a diverse variety of landscapes and wildlife. While most known for baboons, the lake and its environs are also home to herbivores including hippo, impala, elephant, wildebeest, buffalo, warthog and giraffe. In addition, over 300 migratory bird species, including flamingo, long-crested eagle and grey-headed kingfisher can be observed in the area.

Seasonal Information
The annual wildebeest migration, located in Kenya & Tanzania, depends on the region’s seasonal rains. It occurs in Tanzania’s Serengeti from December through July, with calving and mating and then the push north to Kenya. By August & September, the herd reaches Kenya’s Masai Mara to graze before beginning the return south in November. East Africa’s rainy season is April – May, with short rains in November, but it is a won­derful time for a safari as there are fewer visitors and the savannahs are green and lush. Wildebeest can be seen year-round on safari in both Kenya & Tanzania.
