Itinerary

Tour Itinerary

Explore magnificent national parks and reserves on this exciting Kenya and Tanzania safari. Your expedition begins in Nairobi as you depart for the Maasai Mara National Reserve—Kenya’s most famous game area. You’ll embark on morning and afternoon game drives in the “Mara”—home to lion, cheetah, leopard, hyena, wildebeest, and zebra. Next, explore Amboseli National Park—known for its spectacular views of 19,341-ft Mount Kilimanjaro. Here, you’ll enjoy morning and afternoon game drives in search of elephants, Cape buffalo, and more. Cross the border into Tanzania and journey to Lake Manyara National Park. Explore this ecologically diverse park on a morning game drive. In Tloma, visit a local school and a family home to learn more about the local culture. Your escorted African safari continues to the amazing Ngorongoro area—with its astonishing crater measuring 2,000 feet deep and spanning 102 square miles. Revel in the fantastic game-viewing vantage point to spot lion, hippo, elephant, and flamingo. Next, you’ll enter Serengeti National Park—site of the seasonal great migration of wildebeest, but a great game-viewing area year round. Covering 5,700 square miles, the Serengeti will thrill you with both morning and afternoon game drives with the chance to see Nile crocodiles, big cats, giraffes, and gazelles. This escorted Africa safari through Kenya and Tanzania is a dream-come-true for the adventurous of spirit.

Day 1: ARRIVE IN NAIROBI, KENYA.
Welcome to Africa! Arrive this evening, check in to your hotel, and prepare for your safari adventure!

Day 2: NAIROBI–MAASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE.
This morning, depart for MAASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE, Kenya’s most famous game area. After lunch at your lodge, set out on an AFTERNOON GAME DRIVE. (B,L,D)

Day 3: MAASAI MARA.
Today, enjoy MORNING & AFTERNOON GAME DRIVES in the “Mara,” as it is called by locals. Part of the Serengeti ecosystem, the reserve boasts a strong permanent population of game. When the Great Migration of wildebeest and zebra arrives, generally from August to early November, the population enlarges by almost 2 million. This provides a great food source for predators such as lion, cheetah, leopard, and hyena. (B,L,D)

NOTE:
The Great Migration is a natural event, and the arrival/departure of the migrating herds varies slightly year to year.

Day 4: MAASAI MARA–NAIROBI–AMBOSELI NATIONAL PARK AREA.
Today, board a plane for the quick flight to Nairobi. After a short break, drive to AMBOSELI NATIONAL PARK, best known for spectacular views of Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa at some 19,341 feet. Embark on an AFTERNOON GAME DRIVE before settling in at your lodge. (B,L,D)

Day 5: AMBOSELI AREA.
MORNING & AFTERNOON GAME DRIVES are included today. Amboseli affords you a great opportunity to get close to the mighty elephant. You might also spot Cape buffalo, zebra, wild dog, and more. (B,L,D)

Day 6: AMBOSELI AREA–ARUSHA–LAKE MANYARA NATIONAL PARK AREA.
This morning, cross the border into Tanzania. After lunch in Arusha, proceed to your camp and enjoy some leisure time prior to dinner. (B,L,D)

Day 7: LAKE MANYARA AREA–NGORONGORO CONSERVATION AREA.
Embark on a MORNING GAME DRIVE in LAKE MANYARA NATIONAL PARK. This small park is ecologically diverse, with groundwater forests, grassy plains, and alkaline Lake Manyara itself. Watch for elephant, Cape buffalo, giraffe, and more. The park is also home to the world’s largest concentration of baboons. Then, journey to your lodge and enjoy some time at leisure this afternoon. (B,L,D)

Day 8: NGORONGORO AREA.
Descend into the crater for a FULL-DAY GAME DRIVE. Ngorongoro Crater is technically a caldera— the world’s largest unflooded one, in fact, at more than 2,000 feet deep with a floor covering over 102 square miles. Game viewing here is fantastic, as most of the animals stay in this area year round. You can see lion, Cape buffalo, hippo, elephant, and flamingo. This is also your best chance to see the rare black rhinoceros. A picnic lunch will be served in the crater. (B,L,D)

Day 9: NGORONGORO AREA–SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK AREA.
Today, drive to SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK, Tanzania’s largest and most famous park. Home to the annual Great Migration of wildebeest and zebra, generally between late November and July, it attracts visitors from around the world and is great for game viewing year round. Enjoy lunch at your lodge before an afternoon GAME DRIVE. (B,L,D)

NOTE:
The Great Migration is a natural event, and the arrival/departure of the migrating herds varies slightly year to year.

Day 10: SERENGETI AREA.
The Serengeti covers an area of roughly 5,700 square miles, so it is no surprise that the name comes from the Maasai word siringit, meaning “endless plains.” Continue your exploration during MORNING & AFTERNOON GAME DRIVES. You have the chance to see the big cats—lion, leopard, and cheetah—as well as an abundance of other animals, including the Nile crocodile, giraffe, gazelle, and eland.(B,L,D)

Day 11: SERENGETI AREA–ARUSHA–DEPARTURE.
This morning, fly back to Arusha, where your tour ends. We have secured a day room at the Mount Meru Hotel for you to use prior to your homebound flight. Book homebound flights after 5 pm. (B)
