Upon arrival, you will be collected from the airport and transferred to your lodge in the capital city Nairobi where the remainder of your day is free to explore and acclimatize

Day 2 Kibo Safari Camp, Amboseli National Park,

After breakfast explore Nairobi with a visit to the Karen Blixen Museum. The museum is the beautiful and historic farmhouse where Karen Blixen, author of “Out of Africa”, lived between 1917 and 1931 until she left Kenya after a series of personal tragedies. Onward to the Giraffe Centre and the Daphne Sheldrick Animal Orphanage. The institution is named after the wife of the late famous Naturalist, David William Sheldrick who was the founder warden of Tsavo East National Park in Kenya from its inception in 1948 to 1976. At 11:00, the baby animals are brought from the national park for a mud–bath at the orphanage, where for an hour you can get close to them. Lunch will follow before driving down to Amboseli National Reserve, arriving in the afternoon

Day 3 Kibo Safari Camp, Amboseli National Park, Kenya

Onward to Amboseli National Park for a full day of game viewing in one of Kenya’s most famous parks. Amboseli is known for its huge elephant bulls with their magnificent tusks, which make for the ultimate safari picture with the snow–capped Mount Kilimanjaro in the background.

Day 4  The African Tulip, Arusha, Tanzania

Today, we cross the border into Kenya and en–route to Arusha, stop for a walk at Marangu Waterfalls, continuing on via Moshi – the main entr point for Mt Kilimanjaro

Day 5 Tarangire Simba Lodge, Tarangire National Park

Onward to Tarangire, to spend a day game driving in this terrific, but lesser–known park – view mountains to the south, along with the breath–taking views of the Maasai Steppe, and watch out for huge elephant herds – it forms part of an annual migration for up to 3,000 elephant, 25,000 wildebeest and 30,000 zebra.

Day 6&7 Karatu Simba Lodge, Karatu – Lake Manyara National Park

Set off to Lake Manyara National Park. This beautiful little park has tremendous diversity and is not only known for tree climbing lions but its many gazelle, zebra, elephant, plus waterbuck and klipspringer. There’s the chance to experience the cultural diversity of Mto–wa–Mbu, starting at the market and visiting a Chagga family producing banana beer and passing by many different farms. This afternoon we enjoy a visit to the Maasai Boma for the cultural encounter of a life time, Maasai are semi–nomadic herders, who choose to live a traditional lifestyle and are known for their distinctive traditional attire.

Day 8–10 Kenzan Tented Camp, Serengeti National Park,

This morning, depart early for a game drive in the world–renowned Ngorongoro Crater. For many, this wildlife spectacle is the pinnacle of their safari experience. The crater boasts all of the ‘Big 5’, including a small population of endangered black rhino. After a picnic lunch, we head towards the Serengeti through the stunning southern plains. This is the area best known for endless, undulating grass savannah with rocky outcrops that serve as isolated wildlife refuges.
The following days are spent game driving around the the different areas to maximize our chances of seeing some of the planet’s most diverse wildlife spectacles scanning the open plains, spotting many animals from plains game to predators and everything in between and truly realizing just why this national park is so famous

Day 11 Serenity on the Lake Resort, Lake Victoria

We make our way to Lake Victoria. Passing through the villages of the Sukuma tribe, who grow ground nuts, sorghum and cassava as well as keeping livestock this simple life carries on but with a few poignant reminders of the 20th century.

Day 12&13 Mara Eden Safari Camp, Masai Mara National Park, Kenya

This morning you have the opportunity to take part in a boat excursion to one of the local fishing villages before we bid Lake Victoria farewell and continue our journey northwards crossing the border into Kenya. Here we head to the Masai Mara, the traditional land of the Maasai people, who are permitted to graze their cattle in this area. The Masai Mara covers an area that includes the riverine forests along the banks of the Mara and Talek Rivers, acacia forests and the open plains of the savannah and we enjoy our time here game viewing. These various habitats are home to a great variety of game including lion, leopard, cheetah, zebra, wildebeest (gnu), giraffe, buffalo, jackal, topi, gazelle, impala and elephant. Hippopotamus and crocodile are plentiful in the rivers and the bird life is also abundant. No less than 53 different species of birds of prey alone have been recorded.

Day 14 The Boma Hotel, Nairobi, Kenya

After breakfast we return to Nairobi, and visit the Kazuri Bead Centre where you can purchase hand–crafted and locally made jewellery – they make for superb, authentic gifts and directly benefits the community

Day 15 Nairobi, Kenya – Tour Ends

The tour ends after breakfast this morning and you can proceed to the airport for your outbound flight.

How we rate our safaris

Namibia, Botswana and some other African destinations do not have a set star system that is familiar worldwide to many countries, however, as this is widely used, we have tried to replicate this format to give you an idea of the level of comfort during your safari. For example, a mobile camping tour in Namibia is given 1* and luxury accommodation increasing to 5*. Depending on your tour, there may be a bit of a mix of levels of comfort so please check if you are not sure.

1* or 1–2* Rated Safaris – Camping tours:

These are generally scheduled/small group or self–drive safaris (though a private–guided safari can also fall into this category if you wish to camp); the scheduled trips generally involve client participation where you may be expected to put up/take down your tent and assist with camp chores, dome tents and a ground mattress is supplied. For self–drive options this will often mean roof tents on the vehicle and all camping equipment. There may be the occasional night in simple accommodation but majority of nights are spent camping and most camp sites will have shared ablution facilities. If there is a good mix of both camping and accommodation, this may be rated at 1&2*. These are the most basic level of safaris offered and scheduled safari group sizes vary according to the trip and company – 1* tours are the most affordable option and geared for adventurous travellers who do not mind a bit of discomfort.

Accommodated Safaris

Standard/Mid–range safaris 2–3.5*

Standard accommodation style trips generally have no camping included (though on occasion with a specific activity such as a Delta or Serengeti excursion, or perhaps hiking, a couple of nights may be included). As a general rule this is not the case. With most small group/scheduled tours accommodation is generally 2/3* level – clean and affordable but generally without too many frills; rooms will have en–suite facilities, most will offer air con/fans in the rooms, swimming pools etc (not guaranteed), restaurant/bar facilities, though location can be a little further away from main place of interest this option offers excellent value for money for those seeking a bed each night! We try to indicate on each trip the level of comfort for the particular tour

Superior/Luxury Safaris 3.5–5*

A superior style of accommodation. Most lodges at this level will have air–conditioning or fans in the room though some accommodation establishments are technically “camps” as they may be partially build of canvas – these “camps” are permanent fixtures, generally built on a platform, and will have full and comfortable facilities – the occasional trip may have a more basic night or two involved depending on location to ensure clients can fully appreciate the region they are experiencing. Service is generally very good and most places (outside of towns/cities) will have just a few rooms/chalets. Tours in this bracket include very small group safaris (up to 8 clients), self–drive and private–guided options which are tailored to suit you. The luxury options offer a high standard of accommodation, facilities and service in the region with attention to detail – some “camps” /lodges will have private guides and vehicles, but all accommodation is the best available with personalized service and a quality or unique experience perhaps unavailable elsewhere or in a more moderate price bracket. Tours include fly–in safaris, self–drive and private–guided options.

Please note: this is a guideline only and each destination can vary – some areas in Southern Africa do not always have 5* accommodation (there are limited hotels outside of cities that have the same * grading accommodation) but will be best in the area, have limited volume of rooms and some of the best locations and experiences for clients that is outside of the normal “tourist/travel” route. This can include exclusive conservation regions and emphasis is place on clients having a unique experience rather than offering hairdresser type of facilities that may be found is hotels in cities in other countries. Please also remember that some of these locations can be remote so wifi may not always be available, nor a huge menu range.
