Kenya Family Safari - 12 Days

Overview

This safari captures the very best of Kenya and Tanzania and the most likely route for observing the Great Migration of millions of wildebeest and zebra across the great plains of East Africa. Marvel at the snow-capped Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, the highest free-standing extinct volcano in the world, originally in Kenya but given to the Kaiser by Queen Victoria as she already had Mt. Kenya! Explore the lush pastures of the Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania, the world’s largest caldera, with its full kaleidoscope of African wildlife happily living in the bowl of the crater.
