East Africa is safari – rolling savannahs meet stark acacia trees and towering mountains, all topped off with a large helping of some of the world’s most sought-after wildlife. But even if you’ve been there, done that – and yes, you may have even got the tshirt – as far as a safari is concerned, you won’t be lost for other things to do in this neck of the woods.
