Day 2: Arusha - Manyara

Your guide will drive you from Arusha to Lake Manyara Park. The trip takes approximately two hours.

Be sure to keep your eyes peeled this afternoon as you set out for an afternoon game drive in search of elusive tree climbing lions. Manyara National Park is home to a number of these rare and beautiful animals, so spotting one in the midst of an afternoon nap is possible. Although there has been much debate as to why these lions climb the trees, the most commonly accepted explanation is that the lions developed this skill in order to escape the constant pestering of flies. Only lucky guests will see these animals in person, however, with the sun at full strength in the afternoon, all travelers can expect to spot a great deal of wildlife finding refuge in shaded areas.

Accommodation: Lake Manyara Tree Lodge

Most people think that the famous tree-climbing lions at Lake Manyara have developed their climbing habit to get away from annoying insects. At this property, there is another theory - they’re jealous of the magnificent treehouse suites at Lake Manyara Tree Lodge! Cradled in the boughs of an ancient mahogany forest, the lodge blends into the natural beauty of its breathtaking surroundings. The only lodge in Lake Manyara National Park, it offers an exclusive wildlife experience with only ten luxurious yet intimate suites located in a remote corner of the reserve. Hidden away high in the trees, Lake Manyara Tree Lodge offers a sophisticated blend of natural indulgence and romance. Nestled in dense forest between the lake shore and the steep Rift Valley escarpment, the lodge is perfectly positioned to explore the park’s wealth of habitats. Set in the remote southern region of the park, you would be surprised to see another vehicle on your game drive. The lodge pool beckons like a cool oasis in an ocean of shady green. Generous decks suspended above the forest floor open up to a wooded embrace. Split level sitting and dining rooms combine with high thatched ceilings to create a sense of space, while warm wood interiors and understated sofas carve out cozy corners. Tantalizing aromas drift from the open, interactive kitchen, luring guests to watch as simple but delicious meals are prepared. The theater of the open kitchen is translated into the drama of the dining boma, encircled by a tall fence of gnarled wood.

Day 3: Manyara

Best known for its baboon population, the Manyara region is a land of sweeping plains, giant figs and mahogany trees, and is host to a range of herbivores including hippos, impalas, elephants, wildebeests, buffalo, warthogs and giraffes. Today, set out in the morning to explore this diverse land on a guided game drive. With luck, you may even spot the rare tree climbing lion while in Manyara National Park.

On this afternoon game drive you can have the opportunity to do some bird watching. Lake Manyara provides great opportunities for ornithologists keen on viewing and observing over 300 migratory birds, including flamingo, the long-crested eagle and the grey-headed kingfisher. Remember if you feel like stretching, you can always opt out of any game drive and explore some of the activities at the lodge.

Day 4: Manyara - Ngorongoro

Your guide will drive you from Manyara to the mighty Ngorongoro Crater. The trip to this massive Tanzanian landmark will take approximately one hour.

During your stay in Ngorongoro, a range of optional activities are available to you. From bush picnics to cultural visits to local Masai villages to guided wildlife discovery walks, the choice is yours. Of course, in the spectacular setting of the Ngorongoro Crater, you may prefer to simply relax at the lodge with a refreshment in hand and watch as the day unfolds before your eyes. If you would like more information on any optional activity, please speak to your Destination Expert.

Accommodation: Crater Lodge

Ngorongoro Crater Lodge is perched on the edge of the world-famous Ngorongoro Crater at the eastern edge of the Serengeti in northern Tanzania. Lying within the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, which covers more than 8 000 square kilometers (3 100 square miles) of pristine African wilderness. Inspired in design by the Maasai mud-and-stick manyatta (homestead), Ngorongoro Crater Lodge is without a doubt one of the most architecturally spectacular safari lodges in Africa. Ngorongoro Crater Lodge is comprised of three intimate camps perched on the edge of the Crater. Features include the famous Ngorongoro Crater – a World Heritage Site, three intimate safari camps with breathtaking views, spectacular year-round game viewing, interpretive Big Five safaris, nearby Olduvai Gorge and Shifting Sands, and private butler service.

Day 5: 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 in a privately driven vehicle alongside a local expert guide, you will make your way to the setting for today’s adventure; 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.

The untouched wilderness of Singita Grumeti Reserves is located in northern Tanzania and forms part of the Serengeti-Mara ecosystem, on the western corridor of the Serengeti National Park – Africa’s No. 1 World Heritage Site. The famous Great Migration, an annual trek of 2 million animals through the Serengeti-Mara ecosystem, bisects this reserve annually. Called “The Greatest Wildlife Show on Earth” it has, since time immemorial, been the dramatic backbone of this enormous wilderness. The successes of conservation as well as diverse habitats have ensured that, since its inception in 2003, Singita Grumeti Reserves has a well-established resident game population that inhabit the area throughout the year. In addition to the annual wildebeest migration, some notable highlights include large mixed herds of impala, zebra, topi, eland, Grant’s and Thomson’s gazelle. Good numbers of reedbuck, waterbuck, dik dik, klipspinger, oribi and Coke’s hartebeest are to be found and large breeding herds of buffalo, up to 400 strong, compliment the abundant small bachelor groups of bulls. Herds of elephants number up to 450 – concentrations seldom seen elsewhere in Africa.

  • 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!
