By in Uncategorized No Comments

An African adventure and wildlife safari that goes beyond the ordinary—an experience that educates, inspires, and thrills.

Embark on an adventure that marries the thrill of wilderness with the pursuit of learning on an African Wildlife Safari. This October, join us for an experience that not only showcases some of Africa’s most spectacular wildlife refuges but also offers an optional ascent of the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro coupled with Continuing Medical Education (CME) in Wilderness and Travel Medicine.

Climb Kilimanjaro: A Scenic Journey to the Roof of Africa

Imagine ascending the towering Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak, via one of its most picturesque routes. With our experienced guides and porters who will carry your gear, you’re free to focus on the breathtaking landscapes and the sheer exhilaration of the climb. This optional part of our journey is not just a physical challenge; it’s an unforgettable adventure that tests your limits and rewards you with some of the most stunning vistas on the planet. The thrill and sense of accomplishment you’ll feel at the summit are simply unparalleled.

The Quintessential African Wildlife Safari

Post-climb or as a stand-alone trip, our safari experience takes you to the heart of Africa’s wildlife. From the endless plains of the Serengeti, famed for its annual migration of over a million wildebeest and zebras, to the Ngorongoro Crater, often referred to as a microcosm of African wilderness due to its dense concentration of wildlife, each destination offers a unique perspective on the continent’s awe-inspiring biodiversity. The sheer variety and beauty of these creatures will leave you inspired and connected to the natural world.

Tarangire: The Land of Giants

Our safari journey also leads us to Tarangire, known for its vast herds of elephants and iconic baobab trees. Here, you’ll witness nature’s grandeur unfold in a landscape dotted with diverse wildlife and the serene beauty of baobab woodlands. Some of the incredible wildlife species that we commonly see on this trip often include:

    • prides of lions
    • leopards
    • cheetahs
    • elephants
    • hyenas
    • hippos
    • crocodiles
    • giraffes
    • wildebeest
    • cape buffalo
    • gazelle
    • impalas
    • wild dogs
    • warthogs
    • baboons
    • incredible birdlife
    • and dozens of other species!

Our local guides are experts at finding wildlife and teaching natural history.

Cultural Immersion with the Maasai

No trip to Africa is complete without meaningful cultural interaction. During your safari, you will have opportunities to engage with the Maasai people. Known for their rich traditions and vibrant attire, the Maasai offer a warm welcome to travellers, providing insight into their fascinating way of life alongside the wildlife that shares their home.

Continuing Medical Education: Learn in the Wilderness

As the sun sets on each exhilarating day, our safari lodges transform into classrooms. Accredited by the AMA for 16 PRA Category 1 Credits, our CME classes cover crucial topics in Wilderness and Travel Medicine, taught by experts. These evening sessions include discussions on:

  • Altitude Illness and Hypothermia: Essential for those ascending Kilimanjaro.
