Harpers Bazaar outlines two Journeys by Design destinations in their top picks for safari favourites.

First up is Tanzania and the great wildebeest migration of the Serengeti, where about 2 million wildebeest migrate from the Ngorongoro highlands, through the Serengeti and up to the Mara in South Kenya. You can camp under canvas without the aid of running water and electricity or, if you’d prefer more of the classic luxury safari, from Singita Faru Faru you can witness the migration.

The second place is the Omo Valley in Southern Ethiopia, home to many tribes, including the lip-plated Mursi, Kara, Hamer and many others and often referred to as the birthplace of mankind due to its early dating fossils and the genetic variance being one of the highest on the continent. Staying with under canvas camp, Lumale of Wild Expeditions, is the perfect opportunity to tap into this rich culture.

To book a trip to the Omo Valley or to see the great wildebeest migration, please do get in touch and we would be happy to help.
