Unique Safari Opportunities
Breakfast with Giraffes

During this experience, enjoy your morning meal while being visited by the resident herd of Rothschild's giraffes, which stick their long necks through the windows to be fed by hand. It is a unique, unforgettable and intimate encounter with giraffes.
The Great Migration
Experience millions of wildebeest, zebras, and other herbivores travel across the Serengeti-Masai Mara ecosystem in search of food and water in The Great Migration, an annual phenomenon. Since the migration is a dynamic event our travel advisors coordinate the best timing and locations for the best combination of wildlife viewing and refined accomodations.
Hot Air Balloon
Hot air balloon rides offer a unique aerial perspective of the African savanna, providing a panoramic view of the landscape that is not possible from the ground. Floating through the air is a peaceful and serene experience at a relaxed pace, away from the noise and distractions of the ground. It’s an ideal way to see wildlife.
Wildlife sanctuaries offer the opportunity for up-close encounters with animals that are not possible in the wild, such as hand-feeding giraffes or getting close to elephants, lions, or rhinos. Wildlife sanctuaries often provide educational programs and guided tours that aim to increase awareness and understanding of African wildlife and its conservation.
Safari by Boat
A safari by boat can access areas that are difficult or impossible to reach by land, giving you a chance to see wildlife and landscapes that few people have ever seen. Many African animals, such as hippos and crocodiles, are most easily seen from the water, and boat safaris provide up-close views of these and other species.
Helicopter tours can cover large distances in a short amount of time, allowing you to see more of the breathtaking aerial views of the African wilderness in a single trip. Helicopters can reach remote areas that are inaccessible by car, giving you the opportunity to see wildlife and landscapes that are not seen by most travelers.
