Recently designated as one of the new Seven Wonders of the World, the Masai Mara animal Migration Safari promises one of the best wildlife shows on earth with the best seats in the house.

What's more is that Masai Mara offers some of the best wildlife locations in Kenya all year round, which makes it all the more easy to plan.

Mount Kilimanjaro Trekking
One of the best parts of this incredible adventure is that no previous mountain climbing experience is required to climb to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Africa's highest peak (5895m) is snowcapped, streaming with flora and fauna, and simply spectacular. If you are physically fit, then you can climb it. Come witness Africa's gleaming glaciers and unmatched views in person. Mt. Kilimanjaro can be climbed any time of the year but there are two rainy seasons - late March to mid June and November. The best months are December, January to March and July to October - when it is usually dry and there are minimum clouds.

Gorilla Safaris
Get up close and personal with some of Africa's most popular animals - gorillas! The Gorilla Safaris in Rwanda or Uganda take you on a sightseeing mountain trek through the mist where you are able to get in close to some of the most gentle, intelligent animals in the world. Mountain gorillas are sadly becoming a limited population, so this tour is definitely worth taking. In addition to seeing these wonderful creatures, you will get the opportunity to see 13 other primate species, hundreds of birds and many various flower and plant species. Finally, Rwanda and Uganda itself make for an amazing place to visit. Its cultural history and people have interesting stories to tell and for you to go home with.

Romantic Selous and Zanzibar Getaway
This tour combines the best of both worlds that Africa has to offer - safari bliss and luxury resorts. Visitors choosing this route can first enjoy several nights of staying in a special hideaway tent in Selous, camping in the unspoiled African wilderness. Here you and your loved one can witness the popular African wildlife. Next, it's time to get pampered by staying at a luxurious, private bungalow in Zanzibar that's right up close to some of the best diving reefs in the Indian Ocean.

Madagascar Expedition Cruising
Sure, African land tours are definitely something to write home about - but why not take it to the next level and explore under the sea. Luckily for you, this year visitors desiring an "extreme" adventure in African can take the MV Maya Dugong to explore some of the most spectacular snorkeling and diving opportunities in the world. This former research vessel has been completely re-done to accommodate 'expedition cruising'. With 9 cabins and a maximum of 24 passengers in total, expedition cruises are small enough to allow guests the freedom and flexibility in deciding how to spend their holiday, throughout their entire journey.
