Tour Itinerary

One of the greatest shows on Earth, the great migration is an epic wildlife spectacle unrivaled anywhere. A moving pageantry with a cast of millions, this is when herds of animals are on the move through Africa from the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania to the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya and back again...  on the ultimate quest for food, water and survival, determined to let nothing stop them in their tracks...To witness the Migration from tented safari camps perfectly pitched and game drives strategically sited is to truly become a part of Africa’s ever poignant circle of life... Staggering numbers of wildebeest thunder across the plains alongside zebras and gazelles that gallop and sprint their way through the wilderness, predators in wait, on an annual march that takes them from the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania to the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya... Spend two nights in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area with a game drive and picnic lunch in the wildlife-rich crater... fly from Lake Manyara to Serengeti National Park where overnight stays in a mobile camp enable timely sightings of migrating wildlife on private safari game drives with expert trackers... a flight from the Serengeti to wildlife-rich Masai Mara National Reserve is followed by two nights in a safari camp with daily game drives... and a morning flight touches down in Nairobi for a day in Karen with a visit to an elephant orphanage dedicated to rescued baby and teenage elephants. Unique experiences include; a stay in a mobile safari camp designed to move with wildebeest, zebras, eland and gazelles as they migrate to grassier plains, usually followed by natural predators such as lions, hyenas and leopards and a hot air balloon ride with breakfast in either the Serengeti or Masai Mara. A most remarkable travel experience...

Day 1: Arrive Arusha

Tour begins: Rivertrees Country Inn. Transfers are included from Kilimanjaro International Airport to Rivertrees Country Inn near Arusha for an overnight stay in a Garden Room. Meet your fellow travelers in the morning.


Meals:

Day 2: Isoitok Camp & Ngorongoro Crater

Set out for a two-night safari to Ngorongoro Crater, once a gigantic volcano and today regarded as the largest intact caldera in the world where wildlife thrives. Stop en route for a visit at an Isoitik Village. Here, you'll have an opportunity to participate in a medicine walk and learn how the Masai people use the local vegetation for various medicinal cures. You'll also have the opportunity to visit a school followed by lunch in the bush. Continue on to your small, intimate lodge and spa set above a valley with stunning views, for a two-night stay. The surrounding Ngorongoro Conservation Area is home to some 30,000 large mammals. Join us for a welcome reception and dinner at the lodge.


Meals: B, L, D

Day 3: Garden of Eden in Ngorongoro Crater

Experience the Africa of bygone days when you go on a game drive in the “lost world” of Ngorongoro Crater, considered by many to have been Africa’s original “Garden of Eden.” From aboard your four-wheel-drive vehicle, you’ll have an opportunity to spot Africa’s renowned Big Five: buffalo, elephant, leopard, the lion and the endangered, rare black rhinoceros, as well as herds of zebras, wildebeest and gazelles roaming life-giving landscapes of grasslands, swamps and forests. Enjoy a picnic lunch in the crater before returning to your lodge for free time and dinner at leisure.


Meals: B, L, D

Day 4: Fly to the Serengeti

In Maasai, the word Serengeti means “the place where the land moves on forever.” See why when you fly to Serengeti National Park this morning where over a million wildebeest and some 200,000 zebras make a trek from the southern Serengeti to the Masai Mara and back again every year. In spite of the dangers they face from crocodiles or weather conditions, they are driven by a deeply held instinct to constantly search for food and water. Their annual trek takes them through a variety of parks, reserves and protected areas with different habitats. Check into your semi permanent mobile camp for a memorable three-night stay in the heart of the park, then join an expert tracker for an eye-opening afternoon game drive into the Serengeti wilderness. Dinner is served back at the camp this evening.


Meals: B, L, D

Day 5: Daily Life in the Serengeti

Today, get ready for a game drive through Serengeti National Park (either in the morning or afternoon, depending on the migration of the animals). Look for lions, hyenas, leopards, cheetahs, jackals, gazelles, zebras, elephants, hippos and more as you traverse the park, all while experiencing unforgettable panoramic views of the passing landscape. The rest of the day is at your leisure and tonight, sleep to the sounds of nearby wildlife.


Meals: B, L, D

Day 6: Game Drives in the Serengeti

Morning and afternoon game drives keep you on the move with the animals that pass through the Serengeti; on days when the migration is in full force, spend the entire day experiencing this amazing wildlife phenomenon as herds of wildebeest, gazelles and zebras thunder by... with a few hungry big cats tailing behind.


Meals: B, L, D

Day 7: Fly to Maasai Mara in Kenya

An early morning flight out of the Serengeti whisks you to the shores of Lake Victoria then onto Kenya where you land in the Masai Mara National Reserve for a two-night stay at a tented camp that looks out onto the Sabaringo River and the plains of the Masai Mara, one of the world’s richest wildlife reserves. Head out after lunch for a game drive that offers the opportunity to view an array of animals, including zebras, cheetahs, wildebeest, gazelles and the “Big Five,” up close.


Meals: B, L, D

Day 8: Balloon ride over the Masai Mara

Wake up early for a hot air balloon ride* at dawn this morning that takes you above the treetops for panoramic views of the wildlife herds that roam the Masai Mara Reserve. Descend to enjoy breakfast and champagne in the bush before a game drive en route back to your lodge. Enjoy some free time before a late afternoon game drive takes you once more through the Masai Mara. Tonight, join us for a farewell cocktail reception followed by dinner as your adventurous Africa journey comes to a close.


Meals: B, L, D

Day 9: Fly to Nairobi / Journey Home

Tour ends: Nairobi International Airport. Depart your tented camp after breakfast this morning for a flight to Nairobi and a drive to the quiet suburb of Karen, Kenya. Tauck has reserved day rooms at Hemingways hotel so you can relax and repack before your flight home. Have dinner at the hotel before your included transfer from Hemingways Nairobi to Nairobi International Airport. Allow a minimum of three hours for your flight check in.


Meals: B, L, D

The tour was one of our best. Tauck's attention to detail and covering nearly 100% of our costs or fees and booking 5* hotels is why we liked the trip.

Fantastic vacation! Exceeded all our expectations! Trip of a Lifetime!!!

Tauck delivered as promised and more. The tour director was very helpful and knowledgeable. We wouldn't hesitate to book with them again.

Tauck provides great tours. This is our 4th with Tauck. They provided transport for us even when our itinerary was different than usual. The Tauck tour director was wonderful.

The Tour director (Mark) is excellent, the accommodation were first class and convenient and most included meals were very good. We also were blessed with a wonderful group of fellow travelers which I believe is due to Tauck's reputation.

Tauck does a wonderful job in providing a variety of great travel experiences in a worry free environment where every small detail is taken care of.

Both AffordableTours.com and Tauck are very professional organizations who ensure your traveling experiences are exceptional. Highly recommend both and we keep coming back to book with both.
