Best of Kenya and Tanzania

  • Destination: Kenya, Tanzania
  • Duration: 13 days

If you’re looking for an African wildlife safari you can afford, look no further. Easy Go Safaris include Kenya & Tanzania on their list of safari tours, and for very good reason. Both countries are blessed with an abundance of spectacular wildlife and lavishly gorgeous, incredibly photogenic landscapes. Everywhere you go, from the teeming cities to the plains of the Masai Mara, the people are friendly and welcoming. Tourist infrastructure is amazing, often offering white glove service where the basics of running water and electricity appear impossible to find. Game reserves are magnificent, filled with all manner of wildlife, beautiful lakes and beaches, and sweeping vistas that seem to go on forever.
