Our picks for guides, camps, and safaris across Kenya, Zambia, Tanzania, and Botswana.
On the Tanzanian side of the Mara-Serengeti are Sabora Tent Camp and the newly opened Mwiba Lodge. Stay at both with private charter hops in between and the result is a combination of polished service and gastronomic cuisine alongside extraordinary topography (rocks and rivers at Mwiba and endless plains at Sabora). The 10-night trip (from $18,450 a person with a minimum of four people; geoex.com) was designed by the deeply knowledgeable Kate Dotyat Geographic Expeditions. Travel in September and there’s a high chance of catching 600,000 wildebeests during their annual migration.
