1. Safari Safari
Picture this. Waking at the crack of dawn to the sound of crickets chirping, clambering into your overland truck and setting out before the sun has risen. Even with sleep in your eyes a rustle in a nearby tree catches your attention, suddenly you see a gleaming pair of eyes staring back at you, and you realise you've spotted one of the Big 5 – the elusive leopard. Sound exciting? Travel from Lake Nakuru to the Masai Mara and into the vast plains of the Serengeti and Ngonogoro Crater, this is East Africa and an adventure so good, we had to name it twice.

2. Zebras & Zanzibar
Can’t decide between an action-packed safari and a relaxing beach break? Well, lucky for you there is no need to. Setting out from Kenya’s capital city, head into neighbouring Tanzania where you can opt to spend three days exploring the wildlife-rich Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti National Park on morning and afternoon game drives. Then head to the coast and hop on a ferry to the tropical isle of Zanzibar where you can relax, unwind and indulge in a few days of sun, sand and sea.

3. Falls to Jo'burg
There are few better places to kick off your African adventure than at the thundering Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. Enveloped in mist with an ubiquitous iridescent rainbow, this incredible natural wonder is the ideal prelude of what’s to come. Continuing south through Botswana, encounter wildlife in Chobe National Park and relax on a mokoro as it winds down the Okavango Delta, before ending up in South Africa. Here marvel at the impressive Blyde River Canyon and spot game in Kruger National Park. Epic!

4. Gorilla & Game Trek
Ever wonder what it would be like to come eye to eye with the largest primate on earth, with its broad shoulders, long arms, thick black fur and a shiny muzzle? Go in search of these majestic gentle giants with a trek through the lush Ugandan jungle, where if lucky, you may happen across a family of mountain gorillas going about their everyday life. Leaving Uganda behind, continue on to Kenya and camp out in the wildlife-rich Lake Nakuru National Park and spot birdlife on the banks of Lake Naivasha.
