Ever wondered what it’s like to get up close to the iconic animals of Africa? To hear the magnificent roar of a lion as it faces down another male? To see giraffes and zebras grazing metres away from you, unperturbed by your camera? On a Cosmos escorted coach holiday in Tanzania, Kenya, the Cape or Kruger National Park, anything is possible.
The ‘Big Five’ – lions, elephants, leopards, buffalos and rhinos – are only the beginning. Striped hyenas, herds of wildebeest, cheetahs, crocodiles and an astonishing diversity of birds such as pink flamingos and blue ostriches await on an African safari. Travelling by a 4x4 with a highly knowledgeable guide, you’ll get a once-in-a-lifetime glimpse at the wild world these creatures inhabit.
Be in the Serengeti for the astonishing Wildebeest migration and watch the sun setting over Mount Kilimanjaro with a cold beer. Seek out the endangered black rhino in Nairobi and tuck into a bush breakfast in the Maasai Mara. Then observe the natural behaviour of animals at a watering hole at your leisure, from the balcony of your treetop lodge in the Kenyan highlands.
