Africa is truly the cradle of life. You'll feel as though you've stepped into a nature documentary as you roam the famous Serengeti National Park, 15,000 sq km of rolling savannah that shelters an astounding array of animals from miniature dik-dik antelopes to the noble African elephant. It's even easier to spot wildlife among the ethereal vistas of the Ngorongoro Crater. But this is also a human journey that puts you among Kenya and Tanzania's bustling markets and plantations, and in the valleys inhabited by humankind's earliest ancestors. If you want to experience some of the most superb game viewing in Africa, then this will truly be a week to remember.
