Animal lovers often find their way to Tanzania's Serengeti National Park, a major wildlife reserve boasting the world's largest herds of hoofed animals in the wild. Wildebeest, zebras, and gnus trek between the northern hills and southern plains twice a year in a migration as old as the land itself. The park also has the highest concentration of lions anywhere in the world.
Game safaris take intrepid travelers through the parks to view the wildlife.

For a unique take on the typical safari, try KE Adventure Travel's nine-night On Foot in the Serengeti Masai walking safari. The trip revolves around a three-day walking tour of the Serengeti accompanied by guides and Masai warriors, and includes visits to Ngorongoro Crater and Olduvai Gorge. You'll camp six nights under the endless African sky, and stay three in hotels or lodges. The trip costs $2,595 per person and runs three times a year in March, June, and October.
