This exciting safari combines the best wildlife sanctuaries in northern Tanzania and southern Kenya. Enjoy unsurpassable game viewing in the Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti in Tanzania together with the Amboseli and Masai Mara sanctuaries in Kenya. No other luxury safari offers this much quality wildlife viewing with some of the best safari lodges in the region.
Arrive in Nairobi where you will be met and escorted to your luxury hotel in the heart of one of Africa’s most vibrant cosmopolitan capital cities. The rest of the day is at leisure at your hotel.
After a delectable breakfast you’ll start your journey to the Amboseli National Park. Enjoy game viewing en route to your safari lodge, arriving in time for lunch. Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak, provides the perfect backdrop to your late afternoon game viewing drive in the sanctuary.
This morning you set off at the crack of dawn on an exciting game drive. The rest of the day is at leisure before your afternoon game drive in the Amboseli National Park.
Today you cross the border into Tanzania. You will be met and transferred to Arusha, where you will stop for a quick lunch before continuing to the Ngorongoro crater, arriving late afternoon at your safari lodge built into the crater rim.
Early this morning you will descend to the Ngorongoro Crater floor, enjoy a picnic breakfast and continue on a morning of unrivalled game viewing. Drive along the crater floor, home to zebra and wildebeest herds grazing alongside the endangered black rhino while lions laze under an acacia tree. The Ngorongoro crater is a mini biosphere of many species of fauna and bird life. Return to your lodge for a late lunch, after which you have the rest of the afternoon free to relax and enjoy your safari lodge.
Continue this morning to the Serengeti National Park, passing through the Ngorongoro conservation area and crossing the vast savannah plains. Serengeti is world famous for its annual wildebeest and zebra migration, when nearly two million animals traverse the open plains in an almost single file procession in search of fresh grasslands to the north in the Masai Mara. Even during the quieter months, Serengeti offers outstanding game viewing. For the next two days you can look forward to amazing game viewing. The optional dawn hot air balloon excursion is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that should not be missed!
After breakfast board your light aircraft flight over the Serengeti to the Masai Mara Game Reserve. Your guide will be waiting at the Mara airstrip to take you on a game viewing drive ending at your safari lodge perched on the summit of the highest hill in the sanctuary. Your afternoon is at leisure to enjoy the pool or spa before your late afternoon game in the Masai Mara.
Your next two days are filled with amazing game viewing in the famous Masai Mara. You’ll have the opportunity to enjoy a special “dinner under the stars”, accompanied by a display of traditional Masai tribal dancing.
A vibrant and colourful experience! Visit a traditional Masai village where you’ll gain insights into the life and culture of the Masai. You’ll have the opportunity to meet the community, see typical Masai home, enjoy dancing and singing displays and visit the community’s own handicrafts market.
Enjoy one last early morning game drive, ending in a special “breakfast with the hippo” on the banks of the Talek River, before your transfer to the Mara airstrip for your journey to Nairobi and your onward flight.
