You'll stay in the finest Africa safari lodges, tented camps, distinctive hotels and premier resorts where wildlife-rich landscapes are right outside your door.
Kenya Africa safari... Colors flourish – pale yellow hues of the savannah's endless grass... the deep red glow of a sky aflame at twilight... incredible mountain vistas shrouded in a bluish haze... the lush green of the forest's canopy in dawn's first rays... From Masai Mara Game Reserve to Amboseli National Park, grassy plains and broad forests thrive. Tanzania Africa safari... Millions of years of life in an ancient land, a world that time forgot... Ngorongoro Crater, thought to be the original "Garden of Eden." Hundreds of tribal communities have called this region home since the dawn of man... in fact, traces of the earliest known humans were found there. And on the golden plains of the great Serengeti, the "Big Five" thrive. Southern Africa safari... In South Africa, many endangered, rare animals, bird and reptiles call Lion Sands – Kruger National Park and Sabi Sabi Private Reserve "home"... And in Botswana and Zambia, the largest concentrations of unspoiled wilderness and wildlife left on the planet – thrive.
