It combines game drives in the best wildlife parks with the thrill of exploring nature on foot. Become part of your environment as the wilderness becomes more real on a Ngorongoro Crater Rim Walk or Elephants Caves Walk. Or float in a hot air balloon over the impressive Serengeti and soak up the magnificent scenery.
