The wild at heart will feel so at home in Tanzania. It's the home of the famed Serengeti, and your doorway to the "Big Five".

There's nowhere quite like Kenya. Choose a Kenya holiday and take a walk on the wild side in the world’s most magnificent national park – the Masai Mara.

There is something for everybody in Kenya; kids will love nature walks and teens can get a thrill on a 4x4 quad bike tour.
