East Africa's two greatest spectacles of the Serengeti and Uganda create personal experiences; a silverback gorilla intently returning your gaze, lions hunting beside the vehicle, and mystical calls heard from your camp. They're both famous for their size, either the two million mammals or the muscled brilliance of the great apes. Yet they're also remembered for the exquisite details. Combining the Serengeti and Uganda, this 8-day safari unravels all the thrilling intimacy of gorilla trekking

Day 1

Kilimanjaro to Serengeti – First Impressions of the Mystical Migration

After landing at Kilimanjaro International Airport, you'll connect onto the micro flight across the Serengeti, first soaring past the peaks of Kilimanjaro and Meru in the morning light. Pass Ngorongoro Crater and then admire the endless expanse of grass that flows beneath the wingtips. Your first impressions of the great wildebeest migration come from the air, a light aircraft taking you across the plains and showcasing the scale of the phenomenon. Those black dots you see are wildebeests and zebras, clumped together like stitches on nature's carpet. From the airstrip, it's usually a short drive to the camp, one that's likely to encounter a range of animals; perhaps an elephant herd, maybe a giraffe tower, and usually a first close-up of the big herds. The exact camp used will depend on the month on your vacation. From January to March, it will be in the Southern Serengeti, while from April to June, it could be at various points on the migratory route.

Including the international flight, it's been a long journey to get here. So settle into the camp, perhaps enjoying a siesta, and open your senses to the rhythm of the Serengeti. Rustling herds are grazing nearby, the odd elephant trumpets a call, and from the spacious verandah, you can see hundreds of animals. There are no fences in the Serengeti, so you're continually surrounded, whether on a game drive or at the camp. Later in the afternoon, you explore in a safari vehicle, quickly ticking different animals off your revered list. While it's the wildebeests and zebras that form the migration, few destinations can rival the Serengeti for such intense encounters with a whole array of life.
