 "Maps are essential. Planning a journey without a map 
is like building a house without drawings,"

wrote author, adventurer and Outside magazine columnist, Mark Jenkins, and we could not agree more. To that end, we have spent countless hours working with a cartographer, our well-traveled staff, and our partners in East Africa safari camps and safari lodges to craft a comprehensive, poster-sized map of Eastern Africa that helps our guests visualize and plan their custom African safaris.

Our travelers are always surprised by the distances between their desired points of interest in Africa, and this map helps us collaborate with them to get the best possible routing on their safari, which ultimately means more time on the ground and enjoying the wildlife they've traveled so far to see.


As with our previously published Africa planning map, and Southern Africa planning map, travelers will find more than just major cities and African country borders on a Bushtracks map. We've included the locations of our preferred safari camps and lodges, descriptions of top game reserves and cultural attractions, temperature and rainfall charts, information about the routing and timing of the Serengeti migration, and detailed maps of the Conservancies of the Masai Mara, Serengeti National Park, Kenya's Laikipia Plateau as well as Uganda, Rwanda, and Ethiopia.

So whether you are planning a Serengeti Migration Safari, a mix of sand and safari in Zanzibar and Tanzania, or exploring Kenya's Private Reserves in the good company of a Maasai tracker, or are ready to go on a gorilla safari in Uganda, our Eastern Africa map is a great way to help get you on the road to adventure.

Not sure which Bushtracks Africa map is right for you? Please call us at 1-800-995-8689 and one of our expert travel planners will be happy to help you select the best map for your safari.
