Tanzania and Kenya Luxury Safari

TANZANIA AND KENYA LUXURY SAFARI

Trip duration

11 days/ 10 nights

The Tanzania and Kenya Luxury Safari can be combined with our Lake Turkana – Safari to the Jade Sea.

 

 

DAY 1: ARRIVAL – NAIROBI, THE AFRICAN SAFARI CAPITAL

Our Tanzania and Kenya Luxury Safari will start in Kenya’s tourism capital, Nairobi. We shall arrive via the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, where our Tour Leader will be ready to receive us and kick start our journey. We shall then head to our hotel in Nairobi, where we shall check in.

On this day, if we have an early arrival, we may explore local attractions around Nairobi. The city has a national park at its edge, making it one of the special conservation cities globally. Indeed Nairobi is the best place to start your African safari. Otherwise, we can relax and enjoy the nice Nairobi weather from our hotel.

Night in Nairobi.

DAY 2 AND 3: AMBOSELI NATIONAL PARK – MT. KILIMANJARO

We shall then head to Amboseli National Park, where the Tanzania and Kenya Luxury Safari adventure will continue. This amazing place is regarded as one of Kenya’s Premium Parks, and is located at the foothills of Mt. Kilimanjaro. The park is graced by mighty Savannah Elephants, and hosts the longest and most famous elephant research program in the entire World.

The mammals here are great indeed (including Lions, Blue Wildebeest and Maasai Giraffe); and we shall take time to enjoy them. The local birds are great and we shall be hoping to enjoy many species.

Nights in Amboseli.

DAY 4: AMBOSELI NATIONAL PARK TO ARUSHA – MT. MERU

We shall exit Amboseli National Park with a safari drive; as we enjoy more animals. On the way out we often find Kirk’s Dikdiks, Maasai Giraffe, Savannah Elephant and Gerenuk.

We shall then proceed to the Tanzania border where we shall cross over and change vehicles. We shall proceed to Arusha town, at the foothills of Mt. Meru; where our Tanzania and Kenya Luxury Safari continues.

Night in Arusha.

DAY 5 AND 6: LAKE MANYARA AND NGORONGORO CRATER – THE GREAT RIFT VALLEY

Leaving early, we shall enjoy a game drive in Lake Manyara National Park, at the edge of the Great Rift Valley. We shall be looking out for the local tree-climbing lions and primates. We hope to also enjoy flamingos and other birds along the lake shores.

We shall enjoy the next day at the beautiful Ngorongoro crater, which is a major highlight on our Tanzania and Kenya Luxury Safari. The mighty Ngorongoro is indeed an amazing place. It is known as one of the wonders of Africa. Descending down the crater floor takes you through great scenery and you get to experience the local Euphorbia tree varieties.

Herds of wild animals are plenty inside the crater as well as wonderful views of the crater walls. Look out for the local Lions, Black Rhinos, Common Zebras, Cheetah, assorted Gazelles, Nile Hippos and Wildebeests.

Nights in Ngorongoro.

DAY 7 AND 8: SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK; VIA OL DUVAI GORGE MUSEUM

We shall then make our way to a phenomenal pre-historic site, the Ol Duvai or Ol Dupai gorge. This site has led to multiple archaeological and paleontological discoveries; and is often a highlight on all our Tanzania and Kenya Luxury Safaris. Home to the great work by Louis and Mary Leakey, this is a phenomenal destination. Some famous discoveries here include Zinjanthropus, Homo habilis and Homo erectus. You will get to learn all about the work going on at the site in a very interactive way.

We shall then proceed to Serengeti National Park; where our next leg of the Tanzania and Kenya Luxury Safari takes place. We shall enjoy game drives in this wonderful park as we enjoy the scenery of these vast plains. We shall spend time looking around some of the famous rock outcrops, often referred as Kopjes. Look out for animals such as Leopard, Cheetah, Cape Buffalo, assorted Gazelles, Maasai Giraffe, Wildebeest, Common Zebras, Savannah Elephant and African Lions.

Here you shall also get an opportunity to learn all about the famous Serengeti migration and get to follow in the steps of the Wildebeests in a lovely Kopje rock, modelled to imitate the migration cycle.

Nights in Serengeti.

DAY 9 AND 10: MASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE

We shall take a short domestic flight to Tarime and then drive through the Kenyan border to Migori. Here we shall catch another short flight to Masai Mara; to continue our next leg of the Tanzania and Kenya Luxury Safari.

Renowned for the annual wildebeest migration, which is often regarded as the 8th Wonder of the World, Masai Mara National Reserve is the crown of our Tanzania and Kenya Luxury Safari. Considered the ultimate wildlife haven in Kenya and arguably the best safari destination in Africa, Masai Mara has a lot to offer.

From all members of the Big 5 (African Lion, Black Rhino, Cape Buffalo, Leopard, Savannah Elephant) to the numerous herbivores grazing the landscape in huge herds, this place is indeed amazing. We shall spend the next days learning about this magical destination with our safari guide. Enjoy interesting game drives as you track the Big 5, the Big Cats- Lion, Cheetah and Leopard and much more.

There will be an optional Maasai Village visit on one day- this is one of Africa’s best preserved cultures and you will have a chance to learn about their way of life. Here you can also take part in an optional balloon ride across the beautiful Masai Mara plains. This is followed by a scrumptious breakfast and cocktail party; all set up in the bush, with great views of the Masai Mara.

Nights in Mara.

DAY 11: MASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE TO NAIROBI
