Did you know : Giraffes chew bones? They’re herbivores, are they not?

Why chew on bones?

Leopards and cheetahs both have spots. Do they? One has ‘tear’ marks. One is not shy.

Which is which?

Rhinos are known to build dung heaps. But why do they scatter their dung?

Serengeti has been named the Best National Park in the world for the fifth time in a row by @tripadvisor - world's largest travel platform. It is also named as Africa's Leading National Park at the World Travel Awards! 🥇And honestly, we are not surprised! 💚Having been to Serengeti for the 100th time, it still feels like the most surreal and unique experience ever. ✨We tell our clients a wildlife safari in Serengeti is a must-visit destination for children. And also a must-visit destination for adults. ✅The experience is thrilling, exciting and enriching but also educating as you learn how it is possible to thrive along-side the wild. 🦁And most of all, animals in the wild are not a threat. But animals in a cage sure are. So don't be scared of the animals that are roaming freely. 🌱But be respectful of their space and their ecosystem. 🍃Serengeti National Park beautifully manages this with respect and love for the wild and their natural habitats. Would you like to visit the Best National Park in the World too? Let's chat in DMs to plan your perfect itinerary. ✈️🤝🏻#serengetinationalpark #serengeti #Tanzania #africansafari ... See MoreSee Less

Cheetahs are fascinating creatures when hunting. Though you will rarely see them hunt in pairs, but when they do, they bring together their incredible coordination. Their sharp eyesight and incredible speed is their superpower 😍✨

Have you witnessed a Cheetah hunt/chase in the wild? How was your experience? 💚

Inspiration Tours & Safaris

Let us advise, plan and deliver a sensory journey for you.

See and feel the drama of nature, the hunted, the predators. The cry of a fish eagle or grunting of hippos. The speed of the cheetah, the stealth of the elusive leopard. The herds of the great migration and the circle of life. The magic of African sunsets, the campfire scent, the nocturnal sounds, the shooting stars, eyes in the night, the morning dew and sunrise. The silence, and being in the moment.

It's feeling the Swahili and Maasai cultures. The islands of the east African coast, of sun, beaches, corals and swimming with majestic giants, the whale sharks.

Great Migration Safari

Be up close and witness one of the most spectacular migrations on earth. Up to 2 million animals, led by the wildebeest and antelope, followed closely by the predators on their annual migration following the rains and food. A real bucket list adventure.

Hike Kilimanjaro

Hike, not climb up the world's highest free-standing mountain. Guided hikes, to stand on the top of Africa, Mt Kilimanjaro is Africa's highest mountain. A bucket list challenge, do-able by those with moderate fitness and the right attitude.

Swim with Whale Sharks

A surreal experience in one of the few destinations in the world where these massive, gentle giants gather, Mafia Island. This is never forgotten by those who are touched by their proximity.

Giraffes are known to chew bones to supplement their calcium intake.

Leopards do not have spots, they have a rosette type pattern. Cheetahs have spots. In the image the 1st and 3rd are leopards

This behaviour of the rhino is about marking their territory
