Rough it in style on an African safari that journeys from grasslands to highlands, reserves and national parks, and delight in spectacular game drives, amazing landscapes and excellent accommodations. Meet unforgettable local people and experience the true heart of Africa.

Tour highlights include:

  • Visit to a traditional Masai village
  • 3 days at Serengeti National Park, one of the world’s last great wildlife refuges whose treeless plains offer the best place to view lion and cheetah up close
  • Visit to Olduvai Gorge, where in 1959 anthropologist Mary Leaky discovered a 1.8 million-year-old skull that revolutionized the study of human evolution
  • Tour of Ngorongoro Crater, perhaps the best place to see Africa’s “Big Five”--elephant, buffalo, rhinoceros, lion and leopard--in one place
  • Tour of Nairobi, Kenya’s capital, including a visit to the Giraffe Center and the house and museum of Danish writer Karen Blixen (aka Isak Dinesen), author of Out of Africa
