The lands of East Africa are often described as the world’s best destination for game viewing, being home to the world’s most extensive national parks and game reserves, including Sweetwaters, the Maasai Mara and the Serengeti. Here we will find the Great Migration, the last major migratory herds of wildebeest and zebra that travel between the Maasai Mara and the Serengeti each year. This itinerary has been designed to provide ample time in the Mara at a time when we hope to find the largest herds in the pristine wilderness. These are lands noted for their magnificent natural beauty - wide open plains, spectacular mountains, vistas and so much more. Bird watchers will be fascinated by the highest concentration of bird varieties in the world.  Each day we will find new and exciting vistas spreading before us - the rolling grasslands of the Maasai Mara and the Serengeti Plains, the rugged peaks of Mount Kenya and Mt. Kilimanjaro, the unique landscapes of the Ngorongoro Crater, and the bush lands with their endless varieties of game and bird life.  Membership will be limited on this exciting adventure, therefore we urge you to enroll early in order to avoid disappointment.
