Located southwest of Kenya, covering an area of 1,672 square kilometres, the Masai Mara is a land of breathtaking vistas, abundant wildlife and endless plains. Home to an excellent year-round concentration of game viewing, you can encounter more than two million wildebeest, zebra and other antelope that make up the Great Migration.

The park is also home to over 450 bird species, hyena, Bat-eared foxes, Black-backed and Side-striped jackal, baboon, warthog, topi, eland, Thomson's gazelle, Grant’s gazelle, impala, waterbuck, oribi, elephant, buffalo, giraffe, lion, leopard, hippo, crocodile and reedbuck. You will also enjoy morning and evening game drives, a hot-air balloon safari, bush dinner, nature walks and visits to Maasai cultural villages.

Nairobi offers the opportunity to explore an excellent museum as well as the historical home of Karen Blixen.

This is not a modern capital separated from the great wilderness. Located just on the outskirts is Nairobi National Park - 133 square kilometres of plains, cliffs and forest. The park is home to large herds of zebra, wildebeest, buffalo, giraffe, rhino, cheetah and a large number of lions. All found here and living wild within 20 minutes from the centre of town.

Included in the intinerary is Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park in Zambia which gives visitors a view of the dramatic eastern cataract that runs down the length of the mighty Victoria Falls; another highlight on the journey.

The  Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park is home to numerous species including zebra, giraffe, warthog and a variety of birds and smaller animals. Elephant can often be spotted crossing the Zambezi, walking freely through the park on the Zimbabwean side of the border. Bird-watchers will be delighted to hear the park is home to 35 species of raptors such as Taita falcon, Black eagle, peregrine and Augur buzzard.

You’ll encounter pleasant drives around the park. Since there are no predators, the animals are very relaxed - making for excellent photo opportunities. The park also boasts a footbridge that sways through a cloud of spray towards 'Knife Edge', a slippery walkway that runs right along the crags. Or make your way down the slopes to the banks of the Zambezi where the 'Boiling Pot' roars away.

Hwange National Park is situated on the main road between Bulawayo and the world famous Victoria Falls.

The park is one of Africa’s finest havens for wildlife and is home to vast herds of elephants, buffalo, zebra, sable, roan, lion, leopard, wild dog, cheetah, Spotted hyena and wildebeest. Walking safaris, driving and horseback safaris are a popular way of seeing the wildlife and birds.
