KENYA-TANZANIA WILDLIFE | TRIP CODE: KTW


Detailed Itinerary

 

 

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.
