From: £6415.00

Want Africa with the lot? That's exactly what you'll get on this epic adventure across ten countries. Get breathtakingly close to animals more often seen in zoos and nature documentaries, from endangered mountain gorillas and lumbering elephants to ferocious lions and tiny dik-dik antelope. Along the way, meet people from a range of cultures and communities: Zanzibar spice growers, friendly Lake Malawi fishermen and fascinating San Bushmen. This trip will leave you humbled and amazed by the breadth of life and culture, and the beauty of nature, on this ancient and spectacular continent. NEW UPDATES FOR 2019: In 2019 this trip will no longer visit Marangu or visit the Mshiri Village in this area. Instead this trip will go directly from Mto Wa Mbu to Usambara Mountains. Further there will be an additional night in Stone Town after visiting the northern beaches of Zanzibar. The length of the itinerary will not change. Highlights/r/n
