Highlights

The Great Migration: The great migration is an impressive and magnificent marvel that generally occurs during the months of July to October. Approximately 1,300,000 wildebeest, 500,000 Thomson’s gazelles, 97,000 Topi, 18,000 elands, and 200,000 zebras migrate from the Serengeti in Tanzania to the Masaai Mara in Kenya in search of water and grass. One of the most precarious parts of the journey is the crossing at the Mara River. Many of the animals are drowned or swept away by the strong currents. Crocodiles also arrive in droves for their share of bounty during this season. For the lucky, the Great Migration may be experienced during their safari game drives.

Testimonials 


The trip to Morocco was great. I was impressed with the hotels that were part of the tour. We did tons of shopping and tons a lot of pics. Safety wasn't a concern while on the tour however, off the tour I can see the need to keep alert of your surroundings and valuables. The markets are bustling, the sites were amazing, and the tour operators were great. Overall it was a fantastic trip. Thank you once again for all your help in making this trip so special.
