Uganda: Murchison Falls, Queen Elizabeth, Bwindi, Kibale, Mt. Rwenzori and White Water rafting on the Nile.
For the ultimate exploitative Safari, consider Uganda as a top destination. There’s a definite wildlife focus to our Explorer tours & Safaris. Our itineraries generally include the most popular and rewarding destinations but there are several tours that take in spectacular lakes and off-the-beaten-path reserves as well, ideal for memorable Explorer getaways.
Kenya: Masai Mara, Amboseli, Nakuru, Mt. Kenya
Kenya Explorative safaris have become so popular and legendary, with reserves like the Masai Mara where you can watch an unforgettablelion kill not forgetting a fun filled experience of walking safaris led by Masai guides.
Our Kenya and Tanzania safaris are especially good for ensuring that you experience the Wildebeest Migration. Nature’s greatest show takes place across Kenya’s Masai Mara and Tanzania’s Serengeti and by travelling to both not only you will have the best chance of witnessing all the drama of the migrating herds but you’ll take in excellent crowd-free game viewing away from the main event.
Tanzania: Serengeti Plains & the Ngoro Ngoro Crater
Looking for iconic imagery and classic savannah landscapes filled with wildlife? Tanzania is your destination. How about an explorative safari with big walk-in the Serengeti plains or the astonishing Ngoro Ngoro Crater followed by a few sunny days on a tropical island off the Tanzanian coast. Tanzania’s wildlife reserves offer an abundance of big cats on a tense pre-dawn game drive or huge herds of wildlife on seemingly endless plains.
Botswana: Chobe, the Okavango Delta & Moremi
Botswana has an enviable reputation as one of Africa’s prime safari destinations: its huge, remote reserves have tons of animals, superb guides and – compared to other safari destinations – very few visitors.
For an explorative Botswana safari we’d recommend the green waterways of the Okavango Delta, the beautiful lily-covered wetlands of the Moremi Game Reserve and the heavyweight Chobe National Park.
