Exclusive East African Safari
Featuring the Great Migration Phenomenon
June 4 - 15, 2019
Known as one of the “Seven New Wonders of the World,” every summer over two million animals migrate from Tanzania to Kenya in the Great Migration. Wildebeest, zebras, gazelles, and more travel en masse from the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania up to the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya during the summer months.
Now is our opportunity to witness the wildlife phenomenon on their search for greener pastures.
Come join us on this luxuriously authentic experience as we fly across the globe to East Africa. We’ll enjoy the African adventure we’ve been dreaming of with our stays in gorgeous tented camps (yes, that’s right, tents, but better than you could ever imagine). We’ll see extraordinary wildlife on game drives, and get to see the roof of Africa – Mt. Kilimanjaro. But what will really make it the true African experience is the people – we’ll meet and learn about the different cultures and lifestyles of Tanzanians and Kenyans.
We’ll be spending 10 days exploring Tanzania and Kenya during the Great Migration! This is not an experience you want to miss out on! Come explore with us!
This will be the day to start off our amazing exploration of Eastern Africa! We’ll depart Roseborough Travel by coach to the Orlando International Airport for our overnight flight to Africa.

Meanwhile, migratory wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, impala, gazelle, hartebeest and eland crowd the shrinking lagoons. The swamps, tinged green year round, are the focus for 550 bird varieties, the most breeding species in one habitat anywhere in the world. The views of Lake Burunge, Tarangire National Park are endless, and on a clear day - Mt. Meru reveals itself as a breathtaking backdrop.

An estimated 25,000 large mammals are resident in this bowl aplenty, including approximately 6,000 resident wildebeest, 16 highly endangered black rhino and around 70 lions.
