Here you can get a glimpse of what much of East Africa must have looked like in the days before the ‘Great White Hunters’ arrived. On the seemingly endless Serengeti Plains there are literally millions of hoofed animals. They’re constantly on the move in search of grassland and are watched and preyed upon by a varied parade of predators. NGORONGORO CRATER The views from the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater are spectacular, but you need to descend to its 20km wide floor to see the stunning wildlife, including lion, elephant, rhino, buffalo, wildebeest, zebra, reedbuck, as well as thousands of flamingo wading in the shallows of Lake Magadi. Local Masai tribes also have grazing rights here. The Ngorongoro Crater rim has a great climate during late October to mid December when the short rains occur. MT KILIMANJARO NATIONAL PARK Mt Kilimanjaro is one of Africa’s most magnificent sights, and at 5,895m, it’s the highest peak on the continent. The mountain rises through lush rainforests, alpine meadows and finally across a barren lunar landscape to the snow-capped twin summits. The rainforest is also home to plenty of wildlife. If you are extremely fit and plan to climb to the summit, then it is recommended that you take an organised trek along the many different trails. ZANZIBAR Zanzibar, the spice island, entices the traveller with its exotic Stone Town, beautiful beaches and pristine coral reefs. The whitewashed coral-rag houses, quaint shops, bazaars, mosques, courtyards and squares of Stone Town are the legacy of the Persian traders from the 12th and 15th century. This is a great side trip after your safari to wind down and relax. Enquire Now First name* Last name* Email* Phone How can we help?
