East Africa

East Africa offers the classic vistas of open savannah grasslands teeming with animals.

Small Group Family Safari in Tanzania

Witness the great migration: Africa’s most famous wildlife spectacle! Serengeti National Park & Ngorongoro Crater August 13 – 22, 2019

Quivertree is thrilled to announce a once in a lifetime small group family safari to see the Great Wildlife Migration of Africa in August 2019.

Specially designed for families ages 11 and up, the safari will be led by Lorne Sulcas, AKA, “The Big Cat Guy.” Quivertree’s founders have been closely following Lorne’s career over the past 30 years and have long identified him the best wildlife expert for guiding families on safari in Africa.

We are incredibly lucky to have Lorne guide this trip for Quivertree and we expect it to sell out fast!


East African Safaris

How does an East Africa safari differ from a Southern African safari?

Open savannah grasslands means that you can see animals from very far away. During the Great Migration, you can see tens, if not hundreds of thousands of animals gathered together. Hot air ballooning is a highlight. Semi permanent or temporary tented camps allow you to stay right in the middle of the National Parks – no fences! Off-roading is not allowed.

Home to the wonderful Masai Mara and Samburu National Park. Excellent for kids of all ages. Caters to medium and upper budget. Combines well with Zanzibar.
