All visitors should anticipate the best from their safari team, including skilled, knowledgeable guides, well-served food, and comfortable accommodations, even if the quality of safaris can vary depending on what you will be spending.

High drama is constantly present along the route as thousands of animals are killed by predators and thousands more are born, replenishing the population and maintaining the cycle of life.  EXPLORE MORE >>
