Holiday Itinerary - On safari in Kenya & Tanzania

Day 1: Arrive in Nairobi, Kenya.

Welcome to Africa! Arrive this evening, check in to your hotel, and prepare for your safari adventure! 

Day 2: Nairobi - Maasai Mara National Reserve

This morning, depart for Maasai Mara National Reserve, Kenya’s most famous game area. After lunch at your lodge, set out on your first game drive in search of the “Big 5”—lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and Cape buffalo. Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 3: Maasai Mara.

Today, enjoy morning and afternoon game drives in the “Mara,” as it is called by locals. Part of the Serengeti ecosystem, the reserve boasts a strong permanent population of game. When the Great Migration of wildebeest and zebra arrives the population enlarges by almost 2 million. This provides a great food source for predators such as lion, cheetah, leopard, and hyena. Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 4: Maasai Mara - Nairobi - Amboseli Nation Park Area.

Today, board a plane for the quick flight to Nairobi. After a short break, drive to Amboseli National Park, best known for spectacular views of Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa at some 19,341 feet. Embark on an afternoon game drive before settling in at your lodge. Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 5: Amboseli Area

Morning and afternoon game drives offer you a great opportunity to get close to the mighty elephant. You might also spot Cape buffalo, zebra, wild dog, and more. During the heat of the day, relax at your lodge. Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 6: Amboseli Area - Arusha - Lake Manyara National Park Area

his morning, cross the border into Tanzania. After lunch in Arusha, proceed to your camp overlooking Lake Manyara. Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 7: Lake Manyara Area - Ngorongoro Conservation Area.

Lake Manyara National Park is a small, ecologically diverse park with groundwater forests, grassy plains, and alkaline Lake Manyara itself. The park is also home to the world’s largest concentration of baboon. Watch for these mischievous primates, giraffe, hippo, and more on your morning game drive. Then, journey to your lodge and enjoy some time at leisure this afternoon. Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 8: Ngorongoro Conservation Area.

Descend into the crater for a full-day game drive. Ngorongoro Crater is technically a caldera—the world’s largest unflooded one, in fact, at more than 2,000 feet deep with a floor covering over 102 square miles. Game viewing here is fantastic, as most of the animals stay in this area year round. You can see lion, Cape buffalo, hippo, elephant, and flamingo. This is also your best chance to see the rare black rhinoceros. A picnic lunch will be served in the crater. Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 9: Ngorongoro Area, Serengeti National Park Area

Today, drive to Serengeti National Park, Tanzania’s largest and most famous park. Home to the annual Great Migration of wildebeest and zebra, it attracts visitors from around the world and is great for game viewing year round. Enjoy lunch at your lodge before an afternoon game drive. Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 10: Serengeti

The Serengeti covers an area of roughly 5,700 square miles, so it is no surprise that the name comes from the Maasai word siringit, meaning “endless plains.” Continue your exploration during morning and afternoon game drives. You have the chance to see the big cats—lion, leopard, and cheetah—as well as an abundance of other animals, including the Nile crocodile, giraffe, gazelle, and eland. Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 11: Serengeti - Arusa

Fly back to Arusha and transfer to the Mount Meru Hotel, where a day room has been reserved for your use. Schedule departing flights after 5 pm. Meals included: Breakfast

Note:

  • All game viewing is done at your own risk. We will require a signed liability waiver prior to travel.
  • We don’t recommend this vacation to guests with serious back problems due to rough driving on/off road in/between game parks.
