Experience the indescribable feeling of a million hooves rumbling across the plains, hearing a silverback beating his chest, and watching the incalculable drama of big cats stalking their prey while the world’s largest primates surround you. The great wildebeest migration and trekking to wild mountain gorillas are Africa’s two most iconic wildlife attractions. You will experience both sensations on this 11-day luxury safari in Uganda and Tanzania. Tailored for travel from December to early March...
Arusha – Arrival and Preparing For the Safari
As you touch down at Kilimanjaro International Airport, you will glimpse the snow-dappled cone of Africa’s highest mountain, before you sneak a peek at Mount Meru and settle into the lush gardens of the lodge. This luxury lodge just outside of Arusha will provide a quiet first night in Africa. When dusk falls, you will start to hear the bushbabies, perhaps even spot their large eyes that shine in the gloom. Two hours later and all will be silent while stillness hangs in the air. Tonight, you will rest, relax, and get ready for the safari adventure that starts tomorrow. Dinner at the lodge will be included.
