Day 2: Nairobi - Masai Mara

This morning you'll meet up with your guide and head off to the Masai Mara. Approximate travel time is six 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.

Please note that the first half of this drive will be on paved roads and the last half will be rough & bumpy roads. 

Head out this afternoon on an exciting game viewing adventure. The locations visited will be determined by your expert guide as they have an intimate understanding of the daily routines of animals and how best to track them. On this afternoon excursion, visit several wildlife hot-spots with an aim to espy elusive animals such as the leopard. These spotted cats blend almost seamlessly into the tall grass and shrubbery, and are even more challenging to spot when in their favorite hangout, the trees. Exploring the region, your guide will take you to nearby watering holes where on a hot day you’ll spot many birds and mammals, including, with luck, the elusive leopard. After a thrilling afternoon game drive, you will be returned to your lodge in time to freshen up for a delicious safari dinner.

Accommodation: Mara Engai Wilderness Lodge

The spacious luxurious tents are beautifully furnished with full en suite facilities.

Day 3: Masai Mara

Just like the wildlife, your day’s adventure will begin bright and early this morning. Alongside an experienced tracker-guide, set out for the day’s first game drive and discover the dazzling bio-diversity of the Masai Mara Game Reserve. The most recognized animals are known worldwide as the African Big 5, and this group includes the African elephant, Cape buffalo, rhinoceros, leopard, and the king of the beasts, the lion. The term “Big 5” was first coined by big-game hunters as a way to acknowledge that these species were the most difficult and dangerous to track and hunt, however, in subsequent years the term has been adopted and re-purposed by the tourism industry and painted in patently positive light, focusing now on the preservation and protection of these magnificent creatures. Numerous other species of bird and wildlife also inhabit this dynamic region, including hyenas, gazelles, impalas, giraffes, zebras, vultures, cranes, eagles, falcons, and ostriches, many of which you’ll spot on this morning drive through the Masai Mara Game Reserve.

On today’s afternoon game drive, the choice is up to you! Search for the Big 5 or expand your horizons to discover some of the regions lesser known animals. The Masai Mara not only has a rich mix of mammals both large and small, but is also host to an incredible array of birdlife that includes approximately 450 different species, from the fierce bateleur (or short tailed eagle) to the musical sooty chat.

Day 4: Masai Mara

Set out in the early morning on a "migration" inspired game drive with your tracker-guide. The journey today will take you into the heart of the Masai Mara plains in search of the many grazing species that take part in the annual migration, an event that has been occurring for centuries. Massive herds of zebras, gazelles, impalas, and of course wildebeest furiously feed and thunderously march from the Serengeti and through the Mara area every year from July to October. Today, set out to spot these enormous herds for yourself, an incredible experience few will ever have the privilege of witnessing firsthand.

Set out this afternoon with your tracker-guide on another exciting game drive through the Masai Mara Game Reserve. The Mara is one of only a few places left in Africa where guests can still spot free roaming rhinos in the wild, as – troublingly - it is estimated that there are only 4,000 black rhinos left on the continent. Today your guide will take you to locations where rhino sightings have been recently reported with an aim to bring you within camera range of these lumbering, beautiful giants.

Day 5: Masai Mara - Isebania - Serengeti

Depart the Masai Mara Game Reserve with your guide and travel towards the Isebania border crossing. Enjoy the Kenyan country side driving past towns and villages along the way. Please be aware that this portion of the drive can be long depending on rains as this is a dirt road. During the dry season you can reach the border in approximately two hours. 

Upon arrival to the Isebania Border Crossing, switch to a Tanzanian vehicle and continue your safari with a Tanzanian guide. 

Tanzanian Visas can be purchased at the border at the cost of $100 USD for US 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 three 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 clearing the Isebania Border Crossing, you will continue your safari to the Serengeti National Park. A portion of this drive will be partly on a paved highway and partly on bumpy dirt road. Approximate travel time to the Serengeti is between three and five hours, depending on road conditions. As you get closer to the Serengeti National Park, have your camera handy, and enjoy a game drive upon entry into the park as you head towards your lodge or camp.

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

Accommodation: Lemala Ewanjan

Lemala Ewanjan is an authentic intimate tented camp set in a secluded part of the game-rich Seronera Valley in Central Serengeti. Joining its two Serengeti sisters, Lemala Ndutu and Lemala Mara, Lemala Ewanjan is a deluxe seasonal camp with beautiful tents set along the game-rich Seronera Valley in a spectacular location on the western slopes of Makoma Hills. In the Central Serengeti, Lemala Ewanjan features staggering views of the Serengeti migration, grasslands and sunsets. Major game viewing areas of Central, Southern or Western Serengeti are easily accessible and at the end of the day, guests can return to the privacy and solitude of the camp to enjoy great service, food, and ambience. The camp offers optional balloon safaris from Seronera, while Seronera airstrip is only 25 minutes away.

Day 6: Serengeti

This morning, your African adventure begins with an exploratory game drive through Tanzania’s oldest and most recognized National Park, the Serengeti. A land of unparalleled game viewing, from great herds of grazing herbivores to tactically cunning packs of carnivores, life on the plains of the Serengeti truly epitomizes the “circle of life.” A paradise for photographers and wildlife enthusiasts alike, it is all but guaranteed that you will spot giraffes and elephants feasting on shrubbery, impalas, gazelles and buffaloes traipsing carefully through the plains to avoid being noticed by on-looking lions, cheetahs and hyenas, and a spectacular range of birdlife flitting through the sky.

Get ready for an afternoon to remember as you set out in the company of an experienced tracker-guide to explore the expanses of the Serengeti. The park is world renowned for its healthy populations of resident wildlife species, in particular the African Big Five consisting of buffaloes, elephants, rhinoceroses, leopards and lions. Although sightings are considered a rarity, a small group of black rhinoceros also live within the park grounds. Heavy concentrations of topi, gazelle, waterbuck and Coke’s hartebeest ensure that local carnivores including cheetah, hyenas and African wild dog are ever present. The park is also home to more than 500 species of birds, including ostriches, crowned cranes, marabou storks and secretary birds; some of the most sought-after and photogenic birds on the planet.

Day 7: Serengeti - Ngorongoro

Your African journey continues as you board a privately driven vehicle, accompanied by a local tracker-guide, to travel to the gigantic Ngorongoro Conversation Area. Depart the Serengeti National Park grounds slowly, taking in the wildlife along the way and visit the Serengeti Welcome Center to marvel at the panoramic view afforded from the lookout point. En route to your accommodations in Ngorongoro, take a break to enjoy a picturesque picnic lunch. Approximate travel time varies between five and six hours, depending on weather conditions and the number of stops made along the way. During the peak of the 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 cavernous ravine is some 30 miles long and is the result of millions of years of natural erosion. The gorge features a steep-sided gully that cuts its way through the Great Rift Valley stretching along eastern Africa, and is named after a commonly used plant by the Masai people; Sansevieria-Ehrenbergii, or Olduvai for short. This plant grows plentifully in the area, and is used for making bandages, rope, baskets, roofs and clothing. Today, discover the Olduvai Gorge firsthand alongside your expert local guide.

During your stay in the Ngorongoro region, a range of optional activities are available to you. From bush picnics to cultural visits to local Masai villages to guided wildlife discovery walks to sundowner cocktails, the choice is yours. As well, excursions to the massive Ngorongoto Crater can also be arranged where you’ll discover an incredible range of wildlife. If you would like more information on any optional activity, please speak to your Destination Expert.

Accommodation: Plantation Lodge

Like a green oasis, Plantation Lodge rests on soft, red-brown hills amid the vastness and silence of east Africa. The 16 individually furnished rooms and suites melt harmoniously into the flowering garden, offering comfort and relaxation. Everywhere you look, you can see and even feel the personal atmosphere of this owner-run lodge with furnishings that were selected with great attention to detail. Plantation Lodge’s cordial service leaves no wish unfulfilled. Relax at dinner, where you will be served the delectable fresh fruits and vegetables, grown on-site. Dip into the swimming pool, go for a walk, or head out to one of the nearby farms for a window into this wonderful region. The lodge’s location promises maximum safari enjoyment: a stone’s throw from the entrance to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, a short hop from Tarangire and Lake Manyara, and only a few hours from the Serengeti.

Day 8: Ngorongoro

An experienced tracker-guide and private vehicle will accompany you today while exploring Ngorongoro National Park.

Today, discover one of the most remarkable wildlife conservation areas in Tanzania; the Ngorongoro Crater. Departing from your camp in a privately driven vehicle alongside a local expert guide, make your way to the entrance of the park, then drive a further 20 minutes to reach the rim of Ngorongoro Crater: the world’s largest inactive, intact, and unfilled volcanic caldera. This geological marvel was formed as the result of a gigantic explosion which caused the volcano to collapse on itself, thereby creating the massive crater. Roughly 12 miles wide and some 2,000 feet deep, the trip from crater rim to floor takes approximately 45 minutes by vehicle. The extremely fertile crater floor has attracted incredibly dense populations of wildlife, and at present over 25,000 large animals call the crater home, including some of the world’s last remaining black rhinos. The crater floor is also host to some of the highest concentrations of carnivores in the world, featuring large prides of lions, packs of hyenas and solitary predators like cheetahs and jackals. A keen eye paired with expertly procured search patterns from your guide is sure to help you spot a wide range of wildlife and perhaps some of the more elusive species like leopards, servals, and bat-eared foxes.

    Fabulous Trip. Everyone worked to make this trip absolutely memorable. I highly recommend Carolyn, our agent, and Kensington Tours in general.

    Everything was seamless! The itinerary covered all of the highlights of Casablanca and Marrakesh with enough time for us to wander at our leisure. Our driver, Rashid and tour guide, Achmed were very knowledgeable and fantastic.... always on time, extremely well informed, tremendously kind, humorous and always flexible to our wants and desires.

  • Manuel G — October 06, 2017 — Africa

    Our guides, George, Ben and Michael were fantastic. Both George and Ben were amazing at spotting animals and knowing where to find them.

    Trip of a lifetime! Our guides, George (Kenya) and Raymond (Tanzania), were both outstanding- knowledgeable, personable, patient, and accommodating.
