Witness millions of game animals thunder the plains as they follow the ancient rhythm of Africa’s seasons. From Tanzania's Serengeti to Kenya's Masai Mara, the Great Migration is the greatest show on earth.

Everything in “The Mara” is larger than life. Africa's extraordinary predators, including lions, leopards, hyenas and wild dogs follow the migrating herds along the Mara River giving safari goers excellent chances of seeing a kill in action. Cross over from Masai Mara into the seamlessly never-ending expanses of the Serengeti, considered by many as the best for game viewing location in all of Africa, and track predators and prey as they act out the dramatic “circle of life.” Visit the Ngorongoro Crater, the world’s largest inactive volcanic caldera, for a chance to glimpse over 20,000 mammal species that call the bottom of the crater home. Follow the path of the annual migration in a private game viewing vehicle with experienced guides who will take you on several drives each day. In the evenings, relax in charming tented camps and lodges and watch the sun set over the plains as you enjoy drinks by the fire. ... Show More »

Day 2: Nairobi - Masai Mara

This morning you'll meet up with your guide and head off to the Masai Mara. The drive will be about 5 to 6 hours. Head directly into the park for game viewing and then return to the camp for late check-in or check-in first and then head out for an afternoon game drive. Chat with your guide for their recommendation based on your arrival time and park hours.

Enjoy a box lunch while you travel (included in tour price).

Head out this afternoon, accompanied by an experienced tracker guide, on an exciting game viewing adventure.  Search some of the area’s wildlife hot-spots, determined by your guide, as have an understanding of the games daily routines through tracking.  Some wildlife, for instance the Leopard, is more difficult to spot than others. These spotted cats blend almost seamlessly into the tall grass and shrubbery, and are even more challenging to spot up in their favorite hangouts, the trees.  Your guide will take you to nearby watering holes, where on a hot day you’ll spot many bird and wildlife species, including the elusive Leopard.

Accommodation: Mara West

Nestled against a wooded thicket and surrounded by savannah, Mara West combines luxury accommodations with the breathtaking adventures of an unforgettable African safari.

Day 3: Masai Mara

Just like the local wildlife, you’ll head out bright and early this morning, alongside an experienced tracker-guide for the day’s first game drive.  The eco-diversity and sheer size of the Masai Mara Game Reserve provides the necessary requirements to house a wide range of animal species.  The most recognized are known worldwide as the African Big 5, which includes the African Elephant, Cape Buffalo, Rhinoceros, Leopard, and the King of the beasts, the Lion.  The term Big 5 was coined by big-game hunters, as these species were the most difficult and dangerous to track and hunt.  Subsequently, the term was adopted by the tourism industry for marketing purposes, spinning a web of positivity opposed to the negative effect portrayed by the original terminology.  Numerous other species of bird and wildlife inhabit this dynamic location including Hyenas, Gazelles, Impalas, Giraffes, Zebras, Vultures, Cranes, Eagles, Falcons, and Ostriches.

On today’s afternoon game drive, the choice is up to you: search for the Big 5 or expand your horizons to discover something different. The Masai Mara not only has a rich mix of animals – it also has an incredible array of bird life that includes almost 450 different species.

Day 4: Masai Mara

The famed Masai Mara Game Reserve was named after the indigenous inhabitants of this land, the Maasai, and the provider of life to the area, the Mara River.  Game viewing is almost guaranteed at some point along the Mara River, and your experienced tracker-guide will know all the best spots to go to maximize this chance to see some of the many bird and wildlife species here.  Have your camera handy, as some amazing photo opportunities will present themselves from elephants on the riverbanks to hippos in shallow water.

Set out this afternoon with your tracker guide on another exciting game drive through the Masai Mara Game reserve.  The Mara area is one of the few places left in Africa where one can still spot Rhinos in the wild. It is estimated that there are only 4000 black rhinos left in Africa.  Your guide will take you to the locations where Rhino sightings have been recently reported to see if you can snap some photos of these elusive, lumbering giants.

Day 5: Masai Mara - Isebania - Serengeti

You`ll depart the Masai Mara Game Reserve today in a privately driven vehicle with guide and travel towards the Isebania border crossing.  Enjoy game viewing or depart first thing, driving past towns and villages along the way. Upon your arrival, your guide will arrange the necessary documentation for your entry into Tanzania. 

IMPORTANT NOTE:  Please be aware that this portion of the drive can be long depending on rains as this is a dirt road. In dry season you can reach the border in 2 hrs or less. Upon entry into Tanzania, you`ll notice an improvement in stability and comfort as roadway heading toward the Serengeti National Park is newly paved.  

When traveling across the Kenyan-Tanzanian border a few things must occur.  Upon arrival to the Isebania Border Crossing, you will switch vehicles and guides according to the country you'll be entering.
 
You will be required to purchase a Visa; for Kenya it’s a per person cost of 50$ USD, and for Tanzania it's a per person cost of 100$ USD for American Citizens and 50$ USD for all other Nationalities. 

Please Note: Visas must be paid in USD, and in CASH.  No bills can be older than 2006 as a local counterfeiting safeguard.  A Single entry Visa is valid for 3 months and can be used for multiple entries into Kenya and Tanzania.  It is also required that you have your Yellow Fever certification handy upon crossing. 

After you have crossed through Isebania Border you will switch vehicles and guides according to the country you'll be entering.

You`ll continue in your specialized, Tanzanian guided and driven vehicle towards the Serengeti Game Park. Please advise your guide if you would like to make any additional stops at shops and villages. Have your camera handy, as you enjoy some game viewing upon entry into the park whilst traveling to your Serengeti based lodging.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Upon entry into Tanzania, you`ll notice an improvement in stability and comfort as roadway heading toward the Serengeti National Park is newly paved.  Once you arrive in Serengeti you'll drive on dirt roads through the park and enjoy game viewing on your way to the lodge/camp. These dirt roads can be bumpy and/or muddy in rainy season. The approximate total travel time between Masai Mara and Serengeti can range between 6 to 9 hours depending on road conditions, traffic and weather.

Get ready for an afternoon to remember as you set out accompanied by an experienced tracker-guide into the seamlessly never-ending expanses of the Serengeti.  The park is world renowned for its healthy stock of resident wildlife species, in particular the African Big 5 which or course includes buffalos, elephants, rhinoceros, leopards and lions.  Although with sightings considered a rarity, very few black rhinoceros still live within the confines of the park grounds.  The Serengeti is also home to the largest population of lions and giraffes in all of Africa.  Heavy concentrations of topi, gazelle, waterbuck and Coke’s hartebeest provide an ample food source for local carnivores including cheetah, hyenas and African wild dog.  The park is also home to some 500+ species of birds, ranging in size and weights some of these bird including ostrich, crowned crane, marabou stork and secretary bird are the most sought after photogenic birds on the planet.

Accommodation: Mbugani (Central)

Day 6: Serengeti

This morning’s African adventure begins with an exploratory game drive through Tanzania’s oldest and most recognized National Park, the Serengeti.  This location offers the most expansive game viewing in Tanzania. From predators to prey, great herds of grazing herbivores to tactically cunning packs of carnivores, life on the plains of the Serengeti can best be defined as a complete “circle of life.”  A photographic dream unfolds before your eyes as giraffes and elephants feast on tasty shrubbery, whilst impalas, gazelles and buffalos dance carefully through the plains as to not become the latest meal for on-looking lions, cheetahs and hyenas.

Spend the day taking in the spectacle of the famous wildebeest migration.  This annual migration through the Serengeti and Masai Mara is one of the safari highlights of Africa.  The wildebeest migration moves in a basic clockwise direction throughout the year in the Serengeti eco-system and moves north into the Masai Mara in Kenya from June/July through to Sep/October.  Sightings cannot be guaranteed as the herds move according to the availability of food sources and migration movements can be erratic. The herds are accompanied by zebras and Thomson's gazelles and are stealthily hunted by local predators such as leopards, lions and hyenas.

Day 7: Serengeti - Ngorongoro

This African journey continues as you board a privately driven vehicle, accompanied by a local tracker-guide for your visit to the overwhelming large Ngorongoro Conversation Area.  You’ll depart the Serengeti National Park grounds at a somewhat slower pace as to get in some more game-viewing. At the Serengeti Welcome Centre you’ll have an opportunity to marvel at a panoramic view of the surrounding area from the lookout point.  A stop for a picturesque picnic is also scheduled during this journey.  Upon your arrival into the conservation area, you’ll head towards your overnight accommodation whilst taking in the overwhelming size of the Ngorongoro Crater.  The approximate travel time may vary between 5 to 6 hours depending on weather conditions and the number of stops you’ve made along the way.  During the heavy rainy season, longer travel times should be expected.

The massive Olduvai Gorge or Oldupai Gorge is often referred to as “The Cradle of Mankind.”  Beginning in the eastern Serengeti plains, the gorge is roughly some 48 kilometers long.  Resulting from millions of years of natural erosion, this gorge boasts a steep-sided ravine that cuts and stretches its way through the Great Rift Valley along eastern Africa.  The gorge is named after a commonly used plant by the Masai people with the scientific name of Sansevieria-Ehrenbergii, or Oldupai for short.

Accommodation: Acacia Farm Lodge

Acacia Farm Lodge is a romantic Country Lodge nestled in an active mixed farm located high on the spectacular Great Rift’s escarpment area with commanding panoramic views of the amazing Karatu farmlands and the nearby Ngorongoro forest area. Unrivalled area’s natural beauty is finely complemented by the elegant lodge. A timeless tranquility emanates from the exuberance of birdsong, mature trees and the lovely coffee plants. Whether you seek adventure or simply a quiet time to soothe your soul, come to Acacia Farm Lodge where ambient surroundings, friendly service and superior lodging you can afford, will leave you feeling refreshed, revitalized and relaxed.

Day 8: Ngorongoro

You are provided with a personalized, experienced tracker-guide and private transportation today whilst exploring around the Ngorongoro National Park grounds.

Explore one of the most recognized wildlife conservation areas in Tanzania today.  Depart your camp or lodge in a privately driven vehicle, along with a local expert guide, for an approximately 20 to 30 minute drive towards the Ngorongoro Park Gate.  It will then take you another 20 minutes to reach the crater rim itself.   The Ngorongoro Crater is the world’s largest inactive, intact, and unfilled volcanic caldera.  This geological masterpiece was formed as a result of an extremely large volcanic explosion which caused the volcano to collapse in on itself, thus creating a crater.  The crater is roughly 20 kilometers wide and some 2000 feet deep, making the trip from crater floor to rim around 45 minutes by 4x4.  The extremely fertile crater floor is the reason why there is such a highly concentrated amount of wildlife here.  Over 20000 mammals call the crater home, including some of the only remaining black rhinos in the world.  The crater floor also boasts one of the highest carnivore densities in the world including large prides of lions, packs of hyenas and solitary predators like cheetahs and jackals.  A keen eye and expertly recommended search patterns from your guide, may help you spot some of the less common species like leopards, servals, and bat-eared foxes.

  • Katie M. — August 10, 2016 — Africa

    Our Kensington Tour to Tanzania was excellent. All of our accommodations were top-notch, our flights were fantastic, and every single detail was taken care of. We were extremely impressed with how welcoming and knowledgeable our guides were.

  • Neal F. — August 10, 2016 — Africa

    Best trip ever. Sarah was a delight to work with and answered all of our questions and concerns professionally and courteously. It was a trip of a lifetime and everything was fantastic. Thank u Sarah and thank you Kensington

  • Rachel F. — August 10, 2016 — Africa

    Kensington Tours gave us a wonderful trip with the best guide and accommodations. They helped us book flights to avoid long drives and answered all of our questions going above and beyond. Thank you for all your help giving my family and I a trip of a lifetime! We cannot wait to go back to Africa and do it again using Kensington!

  • Jeffrey L. — August 10, 2016 — Africa

    We wanted the full safari experience and Kensington was able to deliver it. We had the perfect mix of tents and lodges and honestly can say we saw about everything we could have in our time there. Our Kensington guide Elijah was very knowledgeable and friendly. He was basically a member of the family by the end of the trip. The entire trip was planned out perfectly. Thanks to Kensington and we hope to travel with them again in the future.

  • Sarah M. — August 10, 2016 — Africa

    We had such a tremendous trip! We covered a lot of geography, plants and animals - both aquatic and land based. Every guide we had was knowledgeable and very personable. When Grootbos and then Madikwe found out it was my husband's birthday - our guide at Grootbos "Nita" arranged a private party for him (and us) and our chef and butler at Little Madikwe, Violet and Patience, baked cupcakes and got a small group together to sing happy birthday - in English and Afrikaans! We could never have seen so much on our own. The knowledge we gained about South African people, places, animals and history made this our trip of a lifetime! Thank you!

  • Sasha T. — August 10, 2016 — Africa

    We had the most amazing time on our trip. Very grateful to Kensington for organizing all the pick ups and details so we didn't have to think or worry - we could just enjoy ourselves. Will absolutely recommend this trip to family and friends and hope to use Kensington again in the future for our next adventure. Thanks so much!

  • Kristin C. — August 10, 2016 — Africa

    From the minute we landed, everything was taken care of. Every driver and guide we had were very friendly and efficient. The highlight of our trip was our stay at Kapama Southern Camp, everything about this place was amazing. We were all sad to leave and would love to return there in the future. Would highly recommend booking as many people there as possible.

  • Eric W. — August 10, 2016 — Africa

    Madagascar is a very poor country with spotty infrastructure. We used Kensington for their knowledge of the area and their resources and we are very pleased. Our driver for the trip was very professional and knowledgeable of the area and the guide that we used for the rainforest walks was equally knowledgeable and professional. Bari, our guide, had a passion for the area and wanted to make sure we were able to get the best picture of each sighting. Franco, our driver, had a passion for his country and the sights and he was a definite asset on our trip.

  • Tom B. — August 10, 2016 — Africa

    Guides were incredibly well-informed and taught my wife and I about the environment, animals, and culture. Our tour would have just been commonplace, without them.

  • Mary R. — July 20, 2016 — Africa

    Going with Kensington Tours was a great decision. The transfers between resorts was handled very professionally and extremely smooth. I will plan my next trip to South Africa with Kensington. Money well spent!
