Kenya and Tanzania Safari: Best of East Africa

Oct 12-23, 2024

0 days | Kenya | alumni UBC Travel Club

Join us in Kenya and Tanzania to witness some of Africa’s most extraordinary animal spectacles in iconic safari destinations. The Serengeti ecosystem represents the intersection between wild savanna ecology and modern conservation — and it supports the largest intact migration of mammals on the planet, ancient habitation by our human ancestors, and modern conservation challenges.

Begin in Kenya with a two-night stay in Amboseli National Park, known for its large herds of African Elephants. This is also where our study leader conducted some of her research in East Africa. The Tanzania leg of the tour starts in Tarangire National Park, where large congregations of mammals and birds gather along the riverbank and nearby water holes. Spend time in the natural amphitheatre of the Ngorongoro Crater to observe the “Big Five” African mammals in the crater floor. A cornerstone of our safari is our time in the southern and central Serengeti where you can have incredible close-up views of Plains Zebras, Thompson’s and Grant’s Gazelles, Cheetahs, giraffes, and some of the over 350 recorded bird species, which collectively contribute to what has been called “one of the world’s greatest wildlife spectacles.”

During game drives, we travel in six-seater pop-top Land Cruisers. Everyone has a window seat (and a sliding window) for unrestricted viewing. Each vehicle is driven by one of our team of expert local naturalists, who take great pride in sharing their heritage and their vast knowledge of the wildlife and habitats we encounter.

We are staying in two wonderful tented camps in the Serengeti. These pristine sites offer unparalleled game viewing. Experience traditional ‘under canvas’ accommodation with comfortable beds, ensuite flush toilets, and a shady verandah to relax and watch the wildlife before you. There is superb food, a cozy campfire for sundowners, and congenial company.
