"Andrea did a wonderful job designing an itinerary to suit three generations of diverse interests, and was flexible and responsive to last minute changes and requests. He showed us many hidden treasures of this beautiful region that would have missed we're it not for him."

A possible, beautiful itinerary for you
Arrival in Tanzania
The snows of Kilimanjaro are visible from the plane. As you descend to catch your next flight, the mighty mountain serves as a dramatic backdrop. Your next plane takes you to an airstrip in the heart of Serengeti and one of the most diverse areas in Africa: the Ngorongoro Crater.
Bursting with Life
You step outside your tent and the view is mind boggling. Thousands upon thousands of wildebeest are gathered before your camp. It’s the birthing season and in the span of a few hours you witness a few birthings. The magnitude of this event is actually much larger than the eyes can fathom: millions of calves are born in just a few weeks. Together with the river crossings, this is the most dramatic highlight of the wildebeest migrations. Read more
During the birthing season, predators are always close behind. Your expert guides lead you to where the action is. Big-cat kills are among the most spectacular in the natural world.
Walking with Hunters
The surroundings are full of predators and prey. To move safely on foot you would need the knowledge gathered over thousands of years. You Hadzabe guides are expert hunters and they know how to move among the predators looking for an easy kill and the stampeding wildebeest that number in the millions. You are closer to the action than you could have imagined.
Following the Rhythm of the Wild
Nature dictates her own schedule. The wildebeest calving season is a dramatic way to understand her force and her capriciousness. The ability to see it all from the comfort of your camp is one of the wonders of travel. You return to the shadow of Kilimanjaro with memories to last you a lifetime, and a passion for Africa.
