Top wildlife experiences of East Africa

With its diverse terrains and impressive biodiversity, East Africa rightfully earns a place among the top safari destinations worldwide. From Tanzania‘s expansive grasslands to Kenya‘s savannahs, and Uganda‘s beautiful lakes and rainforests, the natural beauty of the region is simply breathtaking. For adventure-seeking wildlife enthusiasts, East Africa offers experiences like nowhere else. Here are five top wildlife experiences of East Africa:

  1. Witness the amazing sight of the Great Migration, where more than 1.5 million wildebeest, along with 250 000 zebras and gazelles, follow the rains across the savannas of East Africa. This migration portrays the cycle of life and the challenges of survival. The migration can be observed in Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park and Kenya’s Maasai Mara National Reserve.

  1. Join an unforgettable gorilla and primate safari in East Africa. Trek through the forests of Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park to see the endangered mountain gorillas. Witness these gentle giants up close as they socialize, feed, and care for their young. A unique opportunity to see them in their natural habitat.

  1. Visit the Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania, a UNESCO World Heritage Site renowned for its exceptional wildlife diversity, including all members of the Big Five: lions, leopards, elephants, rhinos, and buffalo. This unique ecosystem is full of fauna and flora, from elephants grazing alongside zebras to migrating wildebeest and flamingos, the Ngorongoro Crater offers top safari experiences.

  1. Queen Elizabeth National Park in Uganda and Lake Manyara National Park in Tanzania are famous for their populations of tree-climbing lions. These lions’ habit of climbing trees is an unusual behavior, showing their impressive agility skills.

  1. See countless flamingos crowding the shores of East African lakes. These birds can be found at Lake Manyara in Tanzania and at Lake Nakuru in Kenya, painting the landscape in various shades of pink. Even more spectacular is the sight of them taking flight in unison, transforming the sky into a sea of pink.
