Trip Highlights

  • Marvel at Tanzania’s scale as you spend four days tracking the great wildebeest migration in the Serengeti, the ungulates kicking up dust as they stretch out in breathtakingly-large herds
  • Absorb the exquisite details during two days of gorilla trekking to two very different troops with contrasting behavior
  • Follow the big cats throughout all stages of the hunt, from those slowly prowling to those attempting a kill, and the frenzied feeding when a pride rips through a carcass
  • Come face to face with gorillas that look straight at you as a brilliant moment of silent communication is shared when you first arrive at the troop
  • Begin your exploration of the Serengeti with visits to three stunning destinations: Lake Manyara is a beautiful introduction, elephants in Tarangire surround you, and Ngorongoro Crater celebrates the idea of a natural Eden
  • Trek through Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable Forest as the trail to the gorillas takes you through a tangled and completely untamed volcanic forest
  • Discover the nuances of nature as you track the migration and trek to gorillas, and notice the fearful look in the zebras’ eyes and the antics of a young ape in the trees above your head
  • Travel easily between Uganda and Tanzania’s most remote destinations with a new light aircraft service that enables you to swap the Serengeti for Bwindi in just half a day
  • Enjoy the exclusivity of your luxury lodges that allow you to lose all your senses in the wild as you watch the migration just by looking out from the camp
