What's included in this trip
Best of East Africa SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Once a swamp but now called the 'green city in the sun', Nairobi is a relatively multicultural city with a range of cuisines, museums and cultural centres to enjoy.
Often shrouded in a carpet of pink flamingos, beautiful Lake Nakuru - and the surrounding national park - is home to a great number of wildlife and bird species.
Meaning 'rough water' in Maasai due to the occurrence of sudden storms, Lake Naivasha's surface is also broken by the yawns of hippos and countless birds flying across its surface.
The charming Loita Hills are home to colourful Maasai and their villages, rolling plains, wonderful wildlife and iconic acacia trees.
Located in south-west Kenya, the Masai Mara is the quintessential African experience with sparse open plains, dramatic skies and the world's most iconic animals living within its boundaries.
Lively Nairobi is the gateway to some of Africa's best national parks and is nicknamed 'the safari capital of the world'.
Situated close to the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and Mount Kilimanjaro, Arusha is a relaxed, friendly city with a wealth of famous sites on its doorstep.
With red dirt streets, green hills in the distance and plenty of smiling children, Karatu is a small town near the gateway to the Ngorongoro Crater.
Teeming with animals and home to the famous migration of the wildebeest, the Serengeti is a marvel with rolling plains, iconic acacia trees and mesmerising skies.
Photographic opportunities abound in the Ngorongoro Crater, a massive volcanic caldera with so many animals, it's hard to know where to look first.
The small village of Marangu is located on the lower slopes of Mt Kilimanjaro. The fertile fields are irrigated by streams that are fed by Mt Kilimanjaro's glaciers.
Covered in tropical rainforest and being around 100 million years old, the lush Usambara Mountains have wonderful hiking trails and lovely villages to visit.
Dar es Salaam lies by the Indian Ocean and is abuzz with busy streets, laidback restaurants, colourful markets, interesting architecture and lots of water-based activities.
Famed for its fragrant spices and infamous for its slave-trading history, Zanzibar mixes divine beaches, an atmospheric main town and Middle Eastern flair with an African beat.
