Witness the great migration: Africa’s most famous
Serengeti National Park & Ngorongoro Crater
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!
Lorne is married with two teenage safari-crazy kids, and he has a wonderful ability to connect with all ages – from kids to grandparents!
He is also an internationally awarded wildlife photographer, and he will be giving invaluable photo tips throughout the safari. When he’s not guiding safaris or photographing Africa’s magnificent wildlife, Lorne travels the world as a globally- acclaimed motivational speaker who uses his vast knowledge of wildlife behaviour to help organizations thrive. His list of clients includes organizational giants on five continents from the World Bank to NASA, CNN to the Toronto Blue Jays, and many others. Lorne also appears regularly on CNN as an expert on wildlife behaviour.
Itinerary August 13 – 22, 2019
Arrive and transfer to nearby airport hotel for overnight. Meet Lorne and the rest of group.
Depart for the Ngorongoro Crater area, stopping en route for a first safari drive at Tarangire National Park, famous for its elephants! Overnight near the Crater.
Safari inside the Crater: learn all about the animals who live in this almost self-contained Garden of Eden!
Additional safari in the Crater before continuing to the Serengeti National Park, site of the Great Migration. Overnight at authentic African Tented Safari Camp.
Full day on safari in the Central Serengeti searching for BIG Cats and other major species. Return to the Tented Camp for overnight.
Depart for the Northern Serengeti region, where migration expected to be concentrated. The millions of wildebeest may even be trying to cross the crocodile infested rivers during your time here. Overnight at a wilderness camp.
Three full days in the main migration area. Lorne will be explaining all about this incredible spectacle (and you will return home knowing more about the wildlife of Africa than you could ever learn in a classroom!) Lorne will be teaching photography as well. Whether a beginner or an experienced photographer, Lorne will teach you how best to capture this once in a lifetime event.
Today marks the end of the safari. You’ll transfer to an airstrip in the northern Serengeti and fly back to Kilimanjaro International Airport to connect to your onward flight.
