This trip stresses the former while capturing the spirit of the latter, transferring you swiftly between national parks, cushy lodges and tented camps while still giving you the chance to get out and truly feel the majestic lands you’re travelling across. In a small safari 4x4 with two expert local guides, you’ll descend into the Great Rift Valley, view Mt. Kilimanjaro in the distance from Amboseli National Park, track the Big Five across the Serengeti and Masai Mara plains and much, much more.
