Here in the cradle of civilization, we invite you to meet and get to know the Maasai and Samburu tribes in Kenya, the gracious folk of Tanzania, the ever-striving citizens of Rwanda, and the always welcoming Ugandans.
When thinking of East Africa, you may picture its rolling hills, riverine forests, and sprawling landscapes, but the beaches, islands and marine parks you’ll find here just may be the world’s finest.
This is a spectacular world just waiting for your discovery. The land, the wildlife and the people of East Africa are unlike anything you’ll find elsewhere on our planet.
Lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants, gorillas, chimps and monkeys – they are all here in unending abundance. Our wildlife parks specialize in sightings of your favorites.
For the BIG CATS roaming the savannah or lazing about in the trees –
Kenya is the land that created the safari. Chances are when you imagine yourself in a 4 x 4 Jeep rumbling over the savannah with lions, elephants and great herds of wildlife, you are picturing a Kenyan safari holiday. The big cats, rhinos, exotic flamingoes, and uncountable wildebeests – they are all here on a landscape that is otherworldly in its size, variety, colour, and beauty. In Kenya you’ll find snow-capped mountains towering over the equator, acacia trees framing a fiery sunset, the drama of soaring Rift Valley formations, thick forests with a primeval lushness, and a magnificent coastline of diamond beaches fronting emerald seas.
Masai Mara National Reserve – perhaps the greatest density of lion, leopard, and cheetah.
Tsavo East National Park – sightings are common here over the sparse terrain.
The Serengeti. Zanzibar. Mount Kilimanjaro. The names sound exotic. The destinations are even more so. This is Tanzania – an epic land of snow-capped peaks, powdery beaches and immense savannah giving birth to the largest animal migration on the planet.
Here you’ll find the world’s highest free-standing mountain and its largest extinct volcanic caldera – a richly forested habitat filled with lions, cheetahs, tusker elephants, and even pink flamingoes.
Serengeti National Park – over 3,000 lions, more than any other park.
Like a pearl, Uganda is small but precious – its luster is the bright greens of Africa’s highest mountains, spectacular waterfalls, thick forests, and dramatic valleys. But the beating heart of Uganda is its parks – the best locations for trekking to and viewing the rare mountain gorilla.
Half of the world’s surviving gorillas live in Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. But families of other primates dominate the landscapes and parks – you’ll find chimpanzees and 10 other species of monkeys in these hills and rainforests.
But Uganda is not all monkey business, at reserves like Kibale Forest and Queen Elizabeth Park you’ll experience animals usually seen on the savannah such as giraffes, lions, buffaloes, and elephants.
Queen Elizabeth National Park – known for its leopards and tree-climbing lions.
East Africa’s “Giants”, the ELEPHANTS and RHINOS are grand and noble beings, symbols of endurance and they’re just plain fascinating.
Amboseli National Park – set at the base of Mt. Kilimanjaro, you’re guaranteed to see herds of the park’s many free-ranging elephants.

Ol Pejeta – the largest number of black rhinos in East Africa.
