Dive the reefs off the spice island of Zanzibar, travel through the Great Rift Valley stopping off at flamingo-covered lakes and watch the migration of wildebeest in the Masai Mara and Serengeti.

Add to this some of the continent’s most beautiful beaches, especially those on the exotic island of Zanzibar, and you have all the ingredients of an unforgettable luxury customized safari vacation. Explore the remote Selous Game Reserve on a walking safari, experience the colorful Samburu and Maasai culture in Kenya and watch wildlife with Mount Kilimanjaro as your backdrop at Amboseli.
