Day 1: Arusha

You will be greeted by a private English-speaking guide in the public waiting area of Kilimanjaro International Airport after passing through baggage claim. This guide will transfer you to your hotel and assist with check-in.

Before departing on your first day of activities, a trip representative will meet you at your hotel to discuss the details of your trips and answer any questions you may have.

For your added comfort, an English speaking airport representative will meet you at the Kilimanjaro Airport arrivals hall. This representative will walk you through the welcome package documents, your itinerary and answer any questions you may have.

While in our care, your safety and security are our number one priority. As such, in the unlikely event of serious illness or injury, all guests are provided with a “Flying Doctors” insurance policy. This emergency evacuation insurance covers the cost of the evacuation flight back to Nairobi for treatment, however, does not cover the cost of any medical treatment received. We highly recommend travel insurance for full coverage.

Accommodation: Rivertrees Country Inn

Set in Northern Tanzania just outside the bustling safari town of Arusha, Rivertrees looks out toward Mt Kilimanjaro, and is perfectly situated for exploring the abundant nature reserves that this region is home to. The inn is a charming country estate that was once an old coffee farm, and still retains the nostalgic air of a well-loved homestead. Rustic cottages are dotted along the river and in thickets of tall trees, while lush lawns and birdsong make for a peaceful and picturesque setting. The restaurant concocts tasty meals of garden-fresh ingredients and old family recipes, as well as oven-fired pizzas and the best of the region’s locally grown coffees. Delicious candle-lit dinners are served by the warmth of the fireplace, or under the stars and the watchful eyes of resident owls. Rivertrees combines unpretentious comfort with subtle accents of style to create a timeless pause in a traveler’s journey, and a sense of warmth and genuine welcome.

Day 2: Arusha

Today you will have a private guide and driver at your disposal.

From urban to wild in a matter of minutes, Arusha National Park is a rugged and beautiful land often overlooked by travelers despite its beguiling diversity of habitats and wildlife. Featuring the slopes, summit, and ash cone of Mt. Meru, the Momela Lakes, Ngurdoto Crater, and the lush highland forests that blanket its lower slopes, it’s a visually captivating and ecologically diverse land. Game viewing is not as impressive as in Ngorongoro, the Serengeti or other northern parks, still, visitors commonly spot giraffes, zebras, warthogs, and in particular, colobus monkeys. Birders should be sure to visit the park as it has become a hotbed sightings of rare species including the Narina trogon.

Day 3: Arusha - Serengeti

Settle in for a private transfer between Arusha domestic airport and your hotel alongside a local English-speaking guide.

Board a flight in Arusha with service to the Serengeti. This flight will make multiple stops along the way, and the approximate flight duration is two hours.

Please note, strict luggage restrictions apply to this flight: 1) Maximum weight allowance of 32 lbs (15 kg) is permitted per person. 2) Baggage must be soft-shelled. 3) Additional baggage allowance can be arranged at additional cost, please speak to your Destination Expert for more information.

A representative from your lodge will pick you up and transfer you between the lodge and airstrip. Depending on time, they will fit in a quick game drive to/from the lodge.

Join fellow guests from your lodge and set out for an afternoon game drive. Throughout the Serengeti, a wide range of animals are waiting to be discovered, from the Big Five to a wide range of smaller animals and birdlife. Some of the more commonly spotted though lesser known animals on these plains include the topi, eland, kongoni, dukier, African civet, caracal, Cape hare, mongoose, and roan antelope.

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.

Day 4: Serengeti

Join up with fellow guests of your lodge and set out on a captivating game drive. During the morning hours, many animals are just beginning their daily activities and this provides for outstanding viewing and photography opportunities. Typically departing close to the crack of dawn, at roughly 6:30 am, this morning you will head out into the plains of the Serengeti to explore its vast and impressive plains, returning to your lodge just before lunch with stories to share over a delicious meal.

The Serengeti was once known as Masailand, and was home to fierce warriors who lived alongside wild animals, surviving off the natural resources of the land. Many of these people can still be found in the region today, some living as far away as the Masai Mara in Kenya. During your safari, consider taking the time to meet the people of an enduring Masai tribe (please speak to your Destination Expert for more information). Whether or not you make the trip to a Masai village, keep in mind as you explore the Serengeti that these lands have been central to Masai life for centuries. As you pass through the region – a photographer’s delight – remind yourself of the incredible, generational history of the Masai people, and the impressive feat of survival on the plains.

Day 5: Serengeti

Join up with other guests from your lodge, with a maximum of six people per vehicle, and set out to discover the Serengeti plains. When the camp is in the north, a migratory crossing point for many animals is found directly in front of camp, thereby allowing for spectacular game viewing while enjoying breakfast. In the southern Serengeti plains, you will have the chance to spot the migration, as well as lions, cheetahs and other big game. In short, whether the camp is on the Mara River in the north or the southern plains of Ndutu, the aim is to get you as close to the thick of the action as possible.

  • Angelia M — June 22, 2019 — Africa

    My Kenya trip was seriously the best trip of my life, and I absolutely loved every second of it! It was my dream vacation and the reality far exceeded the dream. Catherine, my trip consultant, answered all of my many questions and made sure everything went super smoothly. Daniel, my guide, was so fun, interesting, and informative. He went out of his way to make sure my trip was special. I really can't put into words how much I loved it other than I'm already thinking about another trip to Africa. I will definitely be using Kensington Tours again!

  • Chris S — May 17, 2019 — Africa

    Our guide Elisha was absolutely incredible! He was friendly, helpful, funny, and remarkably knowledgeable about the area, the animals, and especially the birds! The accommodations were excellent and the staff at those places was wonderful. The Kubu Kubu tent camp in Serengeti was particularly special, and we felt truly appreciated and pampered by the staff. With their smiling help, we even learned some Swahili! Thank you for the trip of a lifetime.

  • Paul E — May 01, 2019 — Africa

    We had no idea what to expect on this trip but exceeded even our wildest imagination. Daniel, with Kensington, laid out a wonderful plan. The upfront quality and detail on the proposal really sold us. The guides and local support crews on the trip, were on time, personable, and knowledgeable. Special shout out to Shamiel with Ilios Travel in Cape Town. He was joy and clearly loved sharing Cape Town with us.

  • Thomas S — June 14, 2019 — Africa

    Karen Johnson was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was incredibly knowledgeable, professional, and very friendly. Karen was readily available during the planning process and took the time to talk with and listen to us to find out about our wants and needs and ultimately designed our perfect vacation. We can not speak highly enough about her abilities.

  • Michael S — June 13, 2019 — Africa

    The trip was the best thing we have ever done. The people we dealt with were professional and made sure every part of our trip was trouble free.

  • Raymond D — March 22, 2019 — Africa

    The guides were friendly and very accommodating throughout my trip. One of the guides took me to the oldest tea house as a bonus on my tour. It was great being with the people and enjoying a cup of tea. My driver invited me to have Turkish coffee which was a very nice touch to my trip. The accommodations were phenomenal, being near the pyramids was outside of this world. The Kempinski Nile Hotel Garden City Cairo was a wonderful hotel as well. Gesa was great to work with! She was so nice and accommodating throughout the whole planning process. Especially during for the first part of my trip which had nothing to do with my tours with Kensington Tours. She planned everything out perfectly on my trip.

  • Donna M — June 02, 2019 — Africa

    The Kensington Kenya and Tanzania African Safari itinerary and experience exceeded all expectations. From the moment we were met at the airport, we were completely cared for. Our Destination Expert, Erin Cotton, even checked in on us during the trip. Our guides were excellent; Albert and Steve were exceptionally knowledgeable, organized and considerate. The accommodations were all fantastic with friendly staff, comfortable rooms for the family, and great food. Although the balloon trip over the Mara River was a highlight, each game drive was a memorable adventure as or guides toured Amboseli, Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti and the Masai Mara. We got to spend some time in the local villages and dine with some of the other tourists in the middle of the bush and on a spectacular cliff overlooking the plains of Kenya and Tanzania. Most of all, every morning we looked forward to spending time with our guides searching for animals and learning more about the whole ecosystem.

  • Catherine L — May 05, 2019 — Africa

    Everything was absolutely wonderful - from the planning to the execution. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Will definitely work with Kensington on my next trip! (I'm headed to Hong Kong this December and think I should probably do some exploring while I'm there!)

  • Jennifer W — December 04, 2018 — Africa

    Our trip was amazing! The accommodations were lovely. Our safari guide made the experience memorable! Our only job was to relax and enjoy. The guide for our day in Sawato and to visit the Apartheid museum was extremely knowledgeable. This is our second trip with Kensington Tours. We will definitely use again.

  • Tanya R — February 20, 2019 — Africa

    We left everything to our tour rep, Louise Baer. She did a fantastic job. We had no expectations at all but were absolutely overwhelmed with our accommodations. We were treated so well by everyone. It was an unbelievable trip of a lifetime. Our drivers were fantastic. I felt so safe. Brilliant holiday. Thank you, Kensington!
