Have you always wanted to see a lion face to face? Do you want to see one of the greatest natural phenomena in the world? Ready for an adventure in Africa? There are various companies that travel to Africa for different reasons each year, such as a safari or for wildlife photography excursions.

Africa Odyssey is offering three incredible discounted safaris this fall/winter to experience different migrations in Tanzania, Makgadikgadi Pans and northern Seychelles. One of them is watching thousands of wildebeest partake in the Great Migration in the Serengeti. You will be staying right in the heart of the action at Alex Walker’s Serian Camp, where guests can move with the heards to follow the wildebeest, as well as lions, leopards and cheetahs. How exciting! Africa Odyssey is offering four nights for the price of three at the camp throughout September from $3,650/person (saving $750/person).

If you’re into exploring wildlife photography, Suzi Eszterhas is hosting a photography tour/workshop in Rwanda in October of this year. During this trip, you will be photographing gorillas up close! This trip is special because most trips offer only 2-3 days with gorillas, but with Suzi, you’ll have five whole days to get the perfect shot. For full itinerary, prices and information, click here! We interviewed Suzi a few years ago, and she is an amazing photographer who is featured in numerous top magazines. Read her interview with us here!

If neither of these trips work for your budget, but you still would like to travel to Africa, Camp Kenya could be another option. Located on Wildlife Works‘ Kasigau Corridor Project Area, Camp Kenya won the 2010 Eco-Warrior Award for being the Most Sustainable Community Based Tourism Enterprise in East Africa. This camp has been promoting sustainable tourism for years and provides safari tour arrangements for Tsavo East and West National Parks as well as other volunteer opportunities!

Each of these programs pride themselves in being easy to manage, professional, and provide a great experience for every kind of traveler. Take advantage of these trips. Think about it…how many people can say that they went to Africa to see the Great Migration or photograph gorillas? You can, if you book a tour.
