1. The Great Migration
An unforgettable experience and every African safari enthusiast’s dream: the Great Migration of wildebeest from the Serengeti to Masai Mara features first on our list of African adventures. Each year, more than 1 million wildebeest, zebras and antelopes cross the border between Tanzania and Kenya. In search of greener pastures, these beasts traverse a road fraught with danger from crafty big cats and crocodiles lurking in quiet streams. A moving spectacle, the Great Migration aptly illustrates the natural cycle of life and death.
2. Spice Islands: Zanzibar

3. Gorilla Trekking
African adventures rarely get better than this! The lush forests of Uganda and Rwanda offer the best opportunities to observe wild mountain gorillas in the world! More than half of the world’s population of gorillas live in the volcanic mountains on the border between the two countries.
4. The legendary Sossusvlei
