A Destination for Game Viewing

This region is home to the Great Migration, the last major migratory herds of wildebeest and zebra that annually traverse between the Masai Mara and the Serengeti. Our journey allows ample time in the Mara during the peak period, providing the opportunity to witness the largest herds in the pristine wilderness. With its expansive plains, majestic mountains, breathtaking vistas, and more, it's no surprise that visitors consistently describe the region's beauty as unforgettable. Experience the grasslands of the Masai Mara and the Serengeti Plains, the rugged peaks of Mount Kenya and Mt. Kilimanjaro, the landscapes of the Ngorongoro Crater, and more!

CT RATING 3.5/5 - CHALLENGING
While we will be staying in superior lodges and hotels throughout this journey, members should be aware that travel in Africa is often over very rough dusty roads, in small 4x4 vehicles with difficult access. Members will require immunization against yellow fever and should take precautions against malaria. A yellow fever certification may be required to enter Tanzania. The itinerary may be affected by local conditions and late adjustments may be required. All participants must be in good physical condition to fully enjoy this adventure.

What are Craig Journeys all about?

Our goal is to offer meaningful authentic experiences that inspire a deeper understanding of the world we inhabit. Through immersive sightseeing and engaging interactions with local people and cultural sites, we strive to foster a greater appreciation of our global community.

We go to great lengths to ensure the physical comfort of our members, providing excellent accommodations, delicious cuisine, comfortable transportation, and more. At the same time, we encourage them to embrace and engage with local customs.

Why should I book with Craig Travel?

All of our tours are carefully planned to provide a comfortable pace, quality accommodations, in-depth sightseeing, and fully inclusive pricing. We encourage you to compare our offerings with other tours available. Check to see exactly what is included and what extras you may be required to pay.

What do you mean by 'Fully Inclusive' pricing?

Almost all Craig Tours and Cruises include all prepaid costs, encompassing airfare and related taxes, hotel accommodations and/or cruise expenses with taxes and service fees, most meals as described for each departure, sightseeing with entrance fees, gratuities for included services (such as guides, drivers, hotel staff, porters), and even airport transfers. For those residing in southern Ontario, we provide transfers between your home and the airport in most areas, while other passengers receive a special credit or an overnight stay at an airport hotel, depending on the circumstances.

Not included in the published prices are personal services and items such as laundry, telephone calls, room service, and beverages with meals or otherwise (according to local customs; for example, beverages like water, tea, and coffee are typically not included in Europe except during breakfast). Shore excursions on ocean cruises are not included unless specified.

While taxes and fees are included in our prices, they always remain subject to change. Consequently, we may need to collect supplements to cover tax and fee increases that cannot be absorbed.
