East Africa Safari - People ask

  • When should I visit East Africa? For the best wildlife sightings, it's best to go in the dry season between June and August when the animals flock to water sources. However, if you want the best rates then travel between September to February when there are lush landscapes and fewer crowds.
  • Where can I see wildlife in East Africa? Luckily East Africa is smothered in amazing national parks. From the Serengeti and Masai Mara where the Great Migration takes place, to Volcanoes and Bwindi where human-like gorillas munch on leaves.
  • What animals can I see in East Africa? Without a doubt one of the biggest thrills of East Africa is seeing the Big Five! Lions, rhinos, elephants, leopards and buffalo can be found at several national parks here. Try heading over to Zanzibar to discover the fascinating marine life, or venture to the jungles and spend time with a family of gorillas and chimpanzees, there's so much to see in East Africa! View all Big Five, Great Migration and Gorilla safaris.
