The Great Migration is one of the most spectacular events of the animal kingdom. Millions of animals make the annual migration from Tanzania to Kenya in search of water and grazing. Wildebeest, zebra and gazelle travel in hoards to reach more fertile pastures and their instinct to do this is so strong that they will risk their lives during their perilous journey crossing the raging torrents of crocodile-infested waters. Cheetah, painted wolves, lion and hyena wait patiently, ready to pick off the weak and the weary.

The town of Arusha, the gateway to northern Tanzania, is located at the base of Mount Meru and looks out to Africa’s highest peak, Mount Kilimanjaro.

The area is known for its historic and numerous coffee plantations, and we recommend taking a tour of one of the coffee estates to see the process from bean to cup.
