Itinerary Inclusions Tour Notes

Days 1-2 Maasai Mara:

From Nairobi we head into the Masai Mara, one of Africa’s premier game parks. The Masai Mara has large herds of plains game (gazelles, antelopes, and giraffes etc) which in turn attract large numbers of carnivores (lions, cheetahs, hyenas and the ever elusive leopards). In the Masai Mara we do three game drives, one evening drive, one full day game drive and a morning game drive on our way out. In most national parks it is forbidden to drive at night so all game viewing is done as early and as late as possible to get the best conditions. Looking for game in a National park is not always easy. This is one of the advantages of using a truck, which gives us superior height, making it easier to see over the surrounding terrain.

Day 3 Maasai Mara to Arusha:

From the Masai Mara we pass back through Nairobi going into Tanzania for an overnight in Arusha. Arusha is the ‘tourism capital’ of Tanzania and a base for exploring Northern Tanzania, strategically located between Mt.Kilimanjaro and some of Tanzania’s best National Parks like Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara, Lake Natron, Tarangire National Park among other attractions.

Day 4-5 Serengeti National Park:

Leaving Arusha behind us, you will journey through the Tanzanian countryside to the Serengeti National Park, crossing vast plains in search of the Big 5 on our way to our bush camp in the heart of the National Park where we will spend two nights listening to the sounds of Africa. Enjoy morning and afternoon game drives in the Serengeti National park. Expect an early rise in the mornings which give us the best opportunity to view game as they start their day, an unforgettable experience to watch Africa wake up! Afternoon game drives offer their own beauty and give you some amazing photo opportunities.

Day 6 Ngorongoro Crater:

One last early morning game drive in the Serengeti on our way as we head for the Ngorongoro Crater escarpment where you will set up camp and prepare for an early start tomorrow morning.

Day 7 Arusha:

We descend onto the Crater floor in 4x4 Jeeps for an early morning game drive in one of the most stunning natural wonders of the world. At 19Kms across and 600m deep this is the 5th largest crater in the world. It is a world heritage site and boasts a unique ecosystem. The crater itself reflects a mini rift valley. It has a soda lake with flamingos, fresh water, open plains, and a forest area. There is a high concentration of animals here, and it is also a home to a small population of black rhinos. We spend around 4½ hours game driving around the crater and have our picnic Lunch before we head out of the Park where we meet our Truck again and head out to Arusha again. Food and Accommodation for tonight is included. Tomorrow morning you can decide to extend your stay here or fly out from Kilimanjaro International Airport. Alternatively you can take a morning shuttle back to Nairobi.

    How it works:

    This is a group participatory trip whereby you are more than just a passenger. You’re part of the crew, pitching in to set up camp, shop for food, cook and generally help out. We operate a rota system, dividing the group into smaller units, so that these duties are shared equally amongst the group. These jobs will include things like loading the back locker, sweeping the truck, food stores etc. Even though we have a cook on board the truck who will organize and supervise the cooking, you will still be required to help prepare meals. The more you put into your tour the greater the experience you will get from your trip. It is all about participation and mucking in with your fellow passengers! Participation is a key factor on a tour of this nature and everyone is expected to pull their weight and get involved with the daily duties. The most successful trips are those where people become involved. Naturally, amongst any group of people you will find a multitude of personalities, just remember that this is YOUR trip of a lifetime and don’t let other people’s quirks and habits bother you too much – take home your happy memories of Africa. On the flipside you may find your tent partner will become a lifelong friend, which is one of the joys of the internet & social networking sites! A typical camp breakfast might be toast with spreads, cereal and something hot such as eggs or pancakes as well as tea and coffee. Lunch is almost always a sandwich heaped high with healthy salad and assorted fillings, with fruit to follow. Dinner might be a BBQ, risotto, pasta dish and there is always the chance to try some local cooking. Generally our passengers find the more they put into a trip, the more they benefit for it. All passengers are required to obey all laws of the countries through which we pass. This particularly applies to the smuggling of contraband and possession of narcotic drugs, firearms, antiquities and ivory. Any passenger found contravening such laws or customs may be required to leave the trip immediately with no refund of the trip price.

    NOTE: - The longer Jambo African Adventures trips are combinations of shorter tours. Passengers on our longer tours might therefore change crew and vehicles at either Nairobi, Lake Naivasha or Victoria Falls. These and other destinations are also pickup and drop-off points for passengers so new faces and personalities will join the tours .
