Eastern Africa
Maasai Mara National Reserve

Welcome to Eastern Africa

African landscapes parading with the circle of life promise magical moments unlike any you have imagined before. You'll find them during intimate game drives in wildlife-rich national parks, at safari lodges, tented camps and members' clubs luxuriously appointed as you taste local wines, in national parks pulsing with moving vignettes and seasonal migrations, and on forested volcanic slopes sheltering gorillas, endangered and endearing.


A once-in-a-lifetime encounter with the endangered mountain gorillas of Rwanda

On two new 2019 safaris in wildlife-rich game reserves in Tanzania and Kenya, you'll spend the last three nights of your journey in Rwanda – home to the last remaining mountain gorillas on Earth. After gaining insights on gorilla behavior at private lectures and a visit to the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund Museum, you'll be ready to begin your gorilla trek. Hike into the wilderness with a private porter and an expert guide for a once-in-a-lifetime encounter with mountain gorillas in the wild...


Experiencing the magic of the African wilderness firsthand... on safari in Kenya with Tauck...

Rumbling across the savannah aboard a specially built safari vehicle in search of wildlife on a game drive in Amboseli National Park… watching and interacting with baby elephants at feeding time at an elephant orphanage in a suburb of Nairobi… immersing yourself in the otherworldly light of a classic African sunset… this is Kenya, on a Tauck safari...


Stories almost as old as the Earth itself await you in Tanzania

Gliding in a hot air balloon high above the vast plains of the Serengeti, observing the "circle of life" below… a picnic lunch in the wildlife treasure-trove that is Ngorongoro Crater, a volcanic caldera that some believe may have been the "Garden of Eden"… a visit to Oldupai Gorge, home to some of the earliest evidence of humans on Earth… Tauck experiences revealing the essence of Tanzania…


Even its name conjures up images of an exotic, intriguing land... Zanzibar

Off the coast of Tanzania, in the Indian Ocean, sits the archipelago of Zanzibar... a land of exotic spices and wildlife, pristine white sand beaches, and a cultural blend of Indian, African, Persian, Arab and European influences. Discover it along the cobblestone streets of Stone Town... relish the aromas of its open-air spice and food markets... spot dolphins as you cruise aboard a dhow, a handcrafted sailboat like those that have plied the archipelago's waters for millennia...

On safari in Eastern Africa

That first moment on safari when a family of lions... elephants... giraffes... is before you. It's a mixture of surprise, thrill, and awe all wrapped into one millisecond of breathless emotion. Every ear twitch, toothy yawn, and piercing stare occurs, you feel, for your entertainment. But, you are a subject in their kingdom and they reign supreme. We are lucky enough to be able to share moments of their lives in their natural habitat that will change our views of the animal kingdom for a lifetime.
