History is alive in the Serengeti and in Zanzibar as tales of humankind’s evolution mix with roving elephants and Masai tribes continue ancient lifestyles as they herd cattle past lion pride. Wildebeest and zebra migrate across the grasslands and follow an annual pattern unchanged since the beginning of time. These destinations whisper the secrets of the world’s past, and on this 2-week safari, you will uncover that they also hold the key to the future.
