East Africa is the ancestral home of the African safari, an untamed wild space distinguished by otherworldly landscapes, fascinating local culture, and creatures you’d otherwise only encounter at the zoo roaming free. Africa safari excursions are the best way to see the Big Five – elephant, leopard, lion, rhinoceros, and Cape buffalo – and other must-see animals in their natural habitat. It’s also the stage for nature’s greatest spectacle: the annual Great Migration in which millions of wildebeest, zebra, and gazelles make the 500-mile (800-kilometer) journey from the Ngorongoro Conservation Area across the Serengeti to the Masai Mara. If you only take one safari to Africa, make it count. Find the safari that fits you best among our Kenya safaris and Tanzania safaris.

Michelin starred restaurants and stylish hotels, pair with stunning safari lodges (many perched on the grounds or just outside national parks and private reserves) to add extra sophistication to the wildlife safari experience. Just about anything is possible; all you have to do is ask. See our all our South African Safaris.

Blessed with near-constant sunshine and mile upon mile of majestic coastline, few beach destinations are as underrated as Africa. Safari experiences with built-in downtime at world-renowned resorts like Grootbos Private Nature Reserve in South Africa, Mozambique’s Azura Benguerra Island, and Breezes Beach Club & Spa on Zanzibar are the perfect way to recover from your breathtaking adventures on the savanna.
Africa’s abundance of wildlife isn’t confined to its vast grasslands. On a Rwanda safari, the mist-shrouded volcanoes provide refuge for mountain gorillas. On a Uganda safari, you’ll find the gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. And then there’s the unique Madagascar safari, the captivating island that’s home to lemurs, chameleons, colorful frogs, the unusually shaped baobab tree, and countless other creatures that can only be found in the most out-there part of Africa. Safari beyond the boundaries and be stunned by what you see.
