Day 01: Arrive Nairobi (KENYA)

Karibu! We are warmly received in Kenya's capital, Nairobi and transferred to our hotel. The Kiswahili language here is often easily understood as many people mix the vernacular with English words. In fact, more people in Kenya speak English than in any other African country.

Overnight: Serena Hotel Nairobi, (1 night)

Day 02: Nairobi/Lake Naivasha (Drive)

After an early breakfast, we set off on an exciting sightseeing tour of Nairobi, giving us a chance to learn about this city’s beauty and history. We stop at Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage to interact with the gentle and fascinating animals living here, visit the giraffe centre and explore the Karen Blixen museum, the former home of the famous Danish author of Out of Africa. Following a hot lunch, we drive to Lake Naivasha, located north-west of Nairobi. En route we stop to enjoy the beautiful views of the Great Rift Valley Escarpment. Lake Naivasha is a stunning freshwater lake in Kenya. The waters of the lake draw a great range of game to its shores. Giraffes wander among the acacia, buffalo wallow in the swamps and colobus monkeys call from the treetops while the lake’s large hippo population sleep the day out in the shallows.

Overnight: Lake Naivasha Sopa Lodge/Naivasha Simba Lodge, Naivasha (2 nights) (B, L, D)

Day 03: Lake Naivasha/Lake Nakuru/Lake Naivasha

Following breakfast, we journey to Lake Nakuru National Park*, which lies on the floor of the Great Rift Valley. This scenic lake’s abundance of algae attracts a vast number of flamingos and other water birds. The park also provides the rare opportunity to see white and black rhinos, the latter of which is a critically endangered species. We spend the morning and afternoon on a game drive through this stunning region, returning to our lodge in the late afternoon for dinner. (B, L, D)

Day 04: Lake Naivasha/Masai Mara (Drive)

Before leaving Lake Naivasha, we have the opportunity to enjoy an optional add-on boat safari along the lake. Game viewing from the water provides a unique perspective as we spy giraffes, hippos and an extraordinary variety of bird life from our boat. Afterwards, we traverse the Great Rift Valley and ascend to its western rim into the Maasai land. In this stunning landscape, red-clad Masai warriors tend their herds of cattle among the wildlife, admirably unmoved by the presence of large predators. Every summer, over 2 million animals migrate to the Mara from Serengeti. After lunch at our lodge, we embark on one of the most exciting game drives African safari trips can offer, with the opportunity to see lion, leopard, cheetah and a large variety of herbivores.

Overnight: Mara Serena Lodge/Ashnil Lodge, Masai Mara (2 nights) (B, L, D)

Day 05: Masai Mara

An adventurous day ahead as we enjoy morning and afternoon game drives in the spectacular Masai Mara Game Reserve. Blessed with a permanent water supply, Masai Mara has a year-round population of plains game. All of the Big Five animals – elephant, buffalo, lion, leopard and rhino – are quite common on this scenic grassland. Option here as well to take an amazing early morning balloon safari followed by champagne breakfast right in the middle of the park, giving us a birds-eye view of the vast Mara. This is a popular activity and space on the balloons is limited. Please contact Bestway Tours & Safaris to prebook. (B, L, D)

Day 06: Masai Mara/Serengeti (Drive)

Today we depart for Tanzania, home to Mount Kilimanjaro, the exotic spice island of Zanzibar and some of the best game viewing in the world at Serengeti* and Ngorongoro Crater game parks. Our destination today is Serengeti, which literally means “endless plains”. While this day is a long drive, we will enjoy incredible views of the African countryside and stops at scenic villages along the way. Serengeti is the top place to witness the Great Migration, when over 2 million animals cross the plains and the Grumeti River.

Overnight: Serengeti Serena Safari Lodge/Serena Mbuzi Mawe Camp, Serengeti (2 nights) (B, L, D)

Day 07: Serengeti

We begin our Tanzanian adventure at the world famous wildlife sanctuary of Serengeti National Park which, at 14,763 square kilometers, is the largest national park in Tanzania. Serengeti contains the largest remaining concentration of plains game in Africa, on a scale which has no parallel anywhere in the world. The abundance of herbivores includes wildebeest, zebra, gazelle, topi, buffalo and hartebeest, to name but a few. Serengeti is also famous for its predator population, including lion, cheetah, leopard and hyena, as well as a wide variety of birdlife, believed to be in the region of 500 species. Recently, the park has also become home to rare tree-climbing lions. (B, L, D)

Day 08: Serengeti/Ngorongoro Crater (Drive)

Another day of exciting game drives in Serengeti National Park with picnic lunch. The extensive grasslands are interspersed with kopjes, rocky outcrops resembling islands on the flat plain that each hosts their own wildlife communities. We also discover the Seronera River, which flows through the park, providing habitats for a variety of birds, mammals and reptiles. Afternoon we proceed to Nabi Hill gate, where we enjoy our picnic lunch before journeying to the Malanja depression and entering the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.

Overnight: Ngorongoro Serena Lodge/Ngorongoro Explorean, Ngorongoro (1 night) (B, L, D)

Day 09: Ngorongoro Crater/Lake Manyara (Drive)

Today we explore the Ngorongoro Conservation Area*, which spans vast expanses of highland plains, savanna, savanna woodlands and forests. Established in 1959 as a multiple land use area, the region features wildlife coexisting with semi-nomadic Maasai pastoralists practicing traditional livestock grazing. Its crowning jewel is the spectacular Ngorongoro Crater, the world’s largest caldera. We descend to the famous Ngorongoro Crater for a day of superb game viewing, as it is a haven for an estimated 30,000 large mammals. We have the chance to spot lion, leopard, cheetah, elephant, hyena, hippo, wildebeest, baboon, gazelle, the endangered black rhino and many more species. After our safari, we drive to Lake Manyara in the late afternoon. Ernest Hemingway called Manyara “the loveliest I had seen in Africa”. Buffalo, wildebeest, zebra, giraffe and tree-climbing lions are all part of the game experience here.

Overnight: Lake Manyara Serena Lodge/Kirurumu Tented Lodge, Lake Manyara (2 nights) (B, L, D)

Day 10: Lake Manyara

We drive down to Lake Manyara National Park, which is one of the finest parks in Tanzania, where we enjoy a game drive. After lunch, we take another scenic drive crossing the beautiful Great Rift Valley to the colourful villages of Mto wa Mbu before proceeding to our safari lodge. Evening enjoy the spectacular view of Lake Manyara National Park. (B, L, D)

Day 11: Lake Manyara/Arusha/Amboseli (Drive) (KENYA)

With picnic lunch we continue our safari to Arusha, the exact center between Cape Town and Cairo. We then visit Namanga the border town between Tanzania and Kenya. After border formalities we have time to chat with the local people before our drive to Amboseli National Park, situated at the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro, the tallest mountain in Africa. Time permitting we have our first Amboseli game drive en route to our lodge. To many Amboseli is the highlight especially in wildlife photography, as we shall see.

Overnight: Amboseli Serena Lodge/Amboseli Oltukai Lodge, Amboseli (1 night) (B, L, D)

Day 12: Amboseli/Nairobi (Drive)

After breakfast, our exciting journey comes to an unforgettable end with a safari through Amboseli against the backdrop of Mount Kilimanjaro. Amboseli is famous for its vast herds of elephants and stunning views of Kilimanjaro on clear days, so be sure to have cameras ready! After lunch at the lodge, we proceed to Nairobi, where we spend the night.

Overnight: Nairobi Serena Hotel, Nairobi (1 night) (B, L)

Day 13: Nairobi/Victoria Falls (Flight) (ZAMBIA/ZIMBABWE)

This morning, we are transferred to the airport for our flight from Nairobi to Livingstone (LVI) in Zambia. (Flights are extra) Victoria Falls is the border between between Zambia and Zimbabwe. The Falls offer different and at times totally different views from both sides. The view also changes at different times of the year. So in order to get the best of the Falls, upon arrival at LVI we are met and visit the Zambian side of the Falls. After our tour we we cross into Zimbabwe to the town named after the Falls, Victoria Falls. Victoria Falls is a UNESCO World Heritage Site where more than 550 million liters of water drop almost 100 meters into the river below.
