Join us for our main tour:
9 Days/8 nights of pure magic:
Migration Safari (and much more) deep into the Serengeti. We will travel into the center of the migration, in true safari tents (luxurious as they may be), witnessing the Big 5 from wildebeests to Elephants, you will not be disappointed!

You will spend time with the world’s last hunter-gatherers, understanding humanity at its core in a way you will never be able to otherwise.

We will drive deep into a bubble of life contained in the largest caldera in the world: the Ngorongoro crater, and then we will save the lives of villages by contributing to a project to eliminate smoke inhalation from the village kitchens.

Rwanda Pre Extension We will start in one of the most beautiful lands I have been (Rwanda) to walk with gorillas, take river safaris, and most importantly, understand a story of forgiveness that will change the way you look at the world.

Zanzibar Post Extension: When your senses have been satiated, we will take you to the magical island of Zanzibar where you will redefine a tropical vacation. Sink into a Rich culture, beautiful resorts, swimming with dolphins and turtles, and cool social projects.
