MASAI MARA AND SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK SAFARI

Kenya and Tanzania

The Masai Mara National Park is one of the best game experiences you could hope to have. Aside from the undeniably spectacular prospect of seeing tens of thousands of wildebeest brave the crocodiles as they cross the Mara River en masse, the Mara has a huge variety of general wildlife and among the best chances to get great views of lion, cheetah and even leopard. The spectacle of predator versus prey dominates this Africa Savannah park. Golden-maned lion prides feast on the abundance of plain grazers.

SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK

Serengeti National Park is Tanzania's oldest and most popular national park, also a world heritage site and recently proclaimed a 7th world wide wonder, the Serengeti is famed for its annual migration, when some six million hooves pound the open plains, as more than 200,000 zebra and 300,000 Thomson's gazelle join the wildebeest’s trek for fresh grazing. Yet even when the migration is quiet, the Serengeti offers arguably the most scintillating game-viewing in Africa: great herds of buffalo, smaller groups of elephant and giraffe, and thousands upon thousands of eland, topi, kongoni, impala and Grant’s gazelle.

WHY VISIT KENYA

Kenya is known as the safari capital of the world because of its amazing wildlife, beaches, birds and weather. Visitors to Kenya are spoiled for choice - you can choose to visit any or all of the twenty three national parks or the thirteen national reserves.

Millions of travelers go to Kenya to witness the Great Migration or chase the Big Five. The ‘Big 5’ – the elephant, rhinoceros, lion, leopard, and cape buffalo – can all be found in Kenya’s parks, with other popular animals such as the giraffe, cheetah, and zebras. Kenya is a great country for a day safari or a multi-park tour. Headlined by the world renowned Masai Mara National Park, some of its parks located mere hours from the city center.

In addition to the opportunity to see some of Africa most iconic animals in their natural habitat, Kenya also offers visitors the chance to go on cultural safaris. The Maasi culture tours are rated as the best culture tours by thousands of travelers.

03Day Three and Four: Masai Mara Reserve

Our safari in Kenya and Tanzania itinerary includes two full days of morning and afternoon game drives in the famed Masai Mara Reserve.

You may even rise early one morning for an optional hot air balloon safari. While here, we also meet Maasai elder Ben Kipeno and visit a Maasai village, seeing how this pastoral tribe still tends herds of goats and cows much as their ancestors did for centuries.

04Day Five: Masai Mara Reserve / Amboseli National Park

Enjoy one last game drive (time permitting) in the Mara before flying to Nairobi. From Nairobi, fly to Amboseli National Park, tucked on the Kenya/Tanzania border. On a clear day, every vista of this scenic park is dominated by views of Mt. Kilimanjaro — making a superb backdrop for your wildlife photography. Savor an afternoon game drive, watching the sun set across the park, before continuing to Amboseli Serena Lodge, where we spend the next two nights of our Kenya and Tanzania expedition itinerary. (B,L,D)

05Day Six: Amboseli National Park

Amboseli is one of the largest of Kenya’s parks. Although this is dry country, Amboseli’s location in the rain shadow of Kilimanjaro means that the park enjoys year-round water. Two permanent swamps are ideal for game viewing, drawing the park’s signature elephants, as well as giraffes and a variety of bird life, which we’ll look for during our game drives. (B,L,D)

06Day Seven: Amboseli / Tarangire National Park

Cross into Tanzania at Namanga and continue to Tarangire, Tanzania’s third largest national park. Before checking into our comfortable accommodations at the Tarangire Balloon Camp, we journey through the rolling countryside searching for the park’s populations of black rhino, antelope, leopard, lion and cheetah. (B,L,D)

07Day Eight: Transfer to Ngorongoro

Sunrise will just be sweeping across the Savannah on our morning game drive, where our guides will point out elephants and some of the park’s 260 recorded bird species. Tarangire also hosts migrating herds of wildebeest, zebra and Grant’s gazelle. Continue toward Ngorongoro, where we spend the next two nights at the Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge, which features a wonderful view of the crater. (B,L,D)

08Day Nine: Ngorongoro Crater

After a sumptuous breakfast, set out for the Ngorongoro Crater, the world’s largest unflooded caldera (collapsed cone of a volcano). Protected from the outside world by a huge rim, Ngorongoro’s abundance of food and fresh water support more than 30,000 large mammals. We’ll descend 2,000 feet into the crater for thrilling game drives among Africa’s "Big Five" (lion, elephant, buffalo, rhino and leopard), but also search out the rare black rhino — this is your greatest chance to observe the black rhino in East Africa. Enjoy a picnic lunch on the crater floor, and continue our drive before returning to the Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge. (B,L,D)

09Day Ten: Olduvai Gorge / Serengeti National Park

Head for the Serengeti, en route visiting Olduvai Gorge, where early evidence of man was found by the Leakey family in the late 1950s. The Serengeti Plains are home to the greatest concentration of large mammals on Earth, and our frequent game drives are a chance to see immense herds. We spend the next three nights under canvas at our private mobile tented camp, positioned to be as close to the animals as possible. (B,L,D)

10Day Eleven and Twelve: Serengeti National Park

Our Kenya and Tanzania expedition itinerary features daily game drives through the acacia Savannahs and grasslands of the Serengeti offering opportunities to spot wildebeest, zebra, gazelle, topi, impala and hartebeest along with predators such as lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena and wild dog. Along the network of rivers and lakes, we may find hippos and crocodiles.
