There is a wide variety of wildlife to be found here, including Lion, Cheetah and Leopard. In the afternoon we will travel to Lake Nakuru where we will spend the afternoon game driving. Originally created as a bird sanctuary, Lake Nakuru was upgraded to National Park status in 1968.

Day 3 Masai Mara Game Reserve

In the morning there will be another game drive at Lake Nakuru before we enter the world-famous Masai Mara Game Reserve on Kenya’s southwestern border with Tanzania. This afternoon the tour will be entering this huge area of spectacular game viewing to photograph some of Africa’s most abundant wildlife. Famous for the annual migration of around 1.5 million wildebeest, the Masai Mara is also home to many other open plains animals, including lions.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 4 Masai Mara Game Reserve

The Masai Mara National Reserve is the Kenyan side of the world-famous Serengeti National Park (located in Tanzania). Although we are not allowed to cross the border here, the animals freely pass between the two countries. The more than 1500km2 of reserve is primarily open grassland that supports large herds of plains game as well as the predators that hunt them. While many people are most interested in the big cats there are many other animals here that deserve some attention. Optional Activities: Balloon Safari over Masai Mara (must be pre-booked)
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 5 Nairobi

After a final game drive we will drive back to Kenya’s capital city, Nairobi. In the evening we will venture out in to the city to experience some East African nightlife as well as enjoy a meal at one of the city’s excellent restaurants. Optional Activities: Dinner out in Nairobi
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch

Day 6 Amboseli National Park

We depart Nairobi and take the drive south to the Amboseli National Park. Famed as one of the best places to see free-ranging Elephants the park also boasts a magnificent view of Mt Kilimanjaro on clear days. Predominantly a community run enterprise there will also be opportunity to meet the local people of this area.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 7 Tanzania – Arusha

After a wonderful morning’s game drive in Amboseli NP we will cross over the border at Namanga and enter Tanzania. From there we travel to Tanzania’s safari-hub town of Arusha.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 8 Tarangire NP

Around 120km southwest of Arusha lies Tarangire NP, at only 2850 km² it is Tanzania’s 6th largest National Park and most famous for the large numbers Elephant, Baobab Trees and the elusive tree-climbing Lions and African Pythons. In the afternoon we enjoy a game drive before setting up camp just outside the park for another evening under the vast African sky.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 9/10 Serengeti NP

At 14,763 km² the Serengeit NP is massive and although we will spend 2 whole days traversing the larger and smaller roads through the park, we will still only see a fraction of the area. Serengeti is one of Africa’s most famous wildlife areas and its reputation for excellent game viewing is well deserved. As well as being home to The Big 5 (Elephant, Lion, Leopard, Buffalo and Rhino) the sheer seasonal numbers of plains game such as Zebra and Wildebeest are often more memorable. It is possible to book the optional Balloon Safari on the morning of the second day in the Serengeti, but this activity has to be pre-booked in advance. Optional Activities: Balloon Safari over the Serengeti
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 11 Ngorongoro Conservation Area

No visit to this part of the world would be complete without calling in at Olduvai Gorge, site of the Laetoli hominid footprints, Oldupai Museum and many fossilised hominid, animal and plant specimens. Four different types of hominid have been discovered here, with more than 60 remains comprising the archaeological record. A self-guided tour of the museum and a short lecture provides an excellent start to learning more about the history of hominids and other mammals. We will also visit a Masaai Boma in order to spend some time with these remarkable people who live side by side with the animals we have just seen in the Serengeti.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 12 Ngorongoro and Lake Eyasi

Although commonly referred to as The Ngorongoro Crater, it is actually a caldera. At over 20 km’s across and 600m deep the Ngorongoro Caldera is the largest unbroken, un-flooded caldera in the world and clear testimony to this region’s volcanic history. The ‘crater’ is the most renowned part of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, a unique area where more than 25 000 wild animals occupy the crater-floor; we will spend our entire morning game viewing here. In the afternoon we will travel to Lake Eyasi, home to some of East Africa’s last hunter-gather tribes, the Hadzabe, who have lived in this area for over 10 000 years.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 13 Lake Eyasi Hadzabe Hunting Tour

This morning we experience a unique way of life when we meet with the Hazabe people of the Lake Eyasi area. Numbering at only around 1000, only 300-400 members of this tribe still live the traditional huter-gather life. Traditionally considered to be the East African branch of the Khoisan people (their language also uses click-sounds), modern genetic research has suggested the Hazabe may be more closely related to the Pygmies! In the afternoon we journey to Mto wa Mbu (pronounced ‘umto wambu’) where we overnight close to the village.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 14 Mto wa Mbu

Do not be scared off by the translation of the name Mto wa Mbu, it means River of Mosquitoes, but is far better known as the place where, it is said, you can find members of 120 different tribes. We will be taking a guided walk through the village and surrounding areas including a visit to a Chagga Banana Beer brewery, where you can sample the local brew. We will also visit some small handicraft stalls of the Makonde people. After a traditional lunch we will drive back to Arusha where your tour ends.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch
