Listen to an audio version of this blog post! Just press the play button below. What do all of life’s special moments have in common? They are all a celebration of some kind. And when we celebrate, we want to mark the moment in some unforgettable way, in some unforgettable setting, doing some unforgettable things. In that way, we seal the event in our memory and honor it forever. We can’t think of a better way to create joyful and lasting memories than to share special times with loved ones on the brilliant savannahs, fields, forests, and hills of an Africa safari. Imagine a celebration – a significant birthday or anniversary – overlooking the vast herds of wildebeests and gazelles, moving as one in the endless train of the Great Migration. The moment will become an image stamped in time, forever in one’s mind and heart.

Here are some ideas for ways and places to celebrate your special occasions.

Isn’t It Romantic?

You may not associate world-class diamond beaches with Kenya and Tanzania but here’s where you’ll find them, uncrowded and perfectly romantic for your honeymoon or a special anniversary. Kenya’s Diani Beach and Tanzania’s Zanzibar Island are pristine havens bordering worlds of brilliant tropical fish and softly swaying palms.

And when you’re ready to explore the bounty of wildlife these regions offer, it’s an easy drive or flight to nearby national parks to touch upon the excitement of the big cats and the other large game that a safari to Africa promises.

Something For Everyone

Isn’t that what we’re looking for on an intergenerational vacation? Where there are plenty of activities that appeal to all ages – the kids as well as grandma and grandpa.

Think of Amboseli Park at the foot of snow-capped Mt. Kilimanjaro – besides its obvious scenic beauty, the park is a haven for elephant families. Everyone from 8 to 80 will be delighted at the sight of the great and small elephants coming and going to their watering holes. And because the pachyderm population is so abundant in this park, you are guaranteed to see lots of them.

The park offers sightings of Africa’s large wildlife and special viewing spots where everyone can climb out of the Jeep, stretch their legs, and enjoy a walking safari.

And the entire family will enjoy a visit to a nearby Maasai village. This is a great introduction to another world of cultures where the kids can get up close to the smaller livestock, and mom and dad can visit the indigenous homes, learning about the Maasai lifestyle. And then watch Grandpa join in a ritual Maasai dance.

This is What Someday Looks Like

Truthfully, any time is a special moment on the great plains of the vast Serengeti Reserve. But the immense timeless reaches of this world-famous park with its thousands of lions and millions of wildebeests is especially poignant for those coming to Africa for the first time. And, perhaps even more so as a special moment to mark the beginning of a retirement or a similar life change.

Here, a celebration is deeply felt and signifies change and possibilities that stretch out to the distant horizon before you.
