      The dense vegetation of the northern sector of the famed Sabi Sand Reserve provided the perfect cover for the wildlife and it requires all our tracker's skills to find them as we track elephant and rhino on foot.

      We descend 1500 feet into this ancient caldera to explore this most beautiful and natural wildlife haven. Black-maned lions, huge-tusked elephants and black rhino roam freely protected by the walls of the crater itself. We move on through the Olduvai Gorge, said to be the birthplace of man, into the Serengeti to witness the migration north of millions of wildebeest and zebra with the big predators following them.moreless

      Just fifteen kilometres from the city, yet a million miles from anywhere, before setting out on our train ride to Ifakara. This is our jumping off point for the river trip on the Kilombero River into the Selous, the world's largest wildlife sanctuary - a 50,000 square kilometres wilderness, with wondrous bird life, huge buffalo and elephant herds and the river full of dangerous hippo and crocs.moreless
