Day 1: Arrival at Nairobi
The end of 12 Days Safari in Kenya and Tanzania. Arrive in Nairobi and meet at our Hotel in the heart of this bustling city. For clients arriving early, there are a variety of optional tours and excursions on offer – these can be arranged on arrival at the Hotel.
Day 2: Great Rift Valley
Leaving the city behind us, we travel north, climbing continually to the lip of the escarpment from where we will enjoy a fantastic view of the Rift Valley. We then descend into the Valley and spend time taking in the breath taking view of the plains and the bird life that gather here around the lakes.
Day 3: Lake Naivasha
A short drive today, we head for our camp on the shores of Lake Naivasha. After setting up camp amongst the Fever Trees we have some time to relax, watch the Hippo’s and take in the spectacular scenery. This afternoon we visit Elsamere, the former home of Joy and George Adamson, for an afternoon tea and to gain some insight into their fascinating lives.
Day 4: Masai Mara
Today we traverse through some of Kenya’s finest wilderness, using lesser known roads, we will pass numerous Masai villages on the way. We will spend the next two nights in a Lodge next to the renowned Mara River.
Day 5: Masai Mara
Early this morning we depart on a full day of extensive game driving and/or walk. The Masai Mara is well known for its large herds and ever-present predators. Lunch today will be a picnic on the banks of the Mara River, known for its huge crocodiles and hippo population.
Day 6: Lake Victoria
Leaving the Masai Mara behind us, today we enter Tanzania and then descend toward the shores of Africa’s largest lake, Lake Victoria. This Lake forms part of the Great Rift Valley and provides a livelihood for the many locals that fish its waters.
Day 7: Serengeti
Today we enter what is arguably the world’s most acclaimed wildlife sanctuary, the Serengeti National Park. This Park with its huge concentrations of plains game, numerous predators and prolific birdlife all resident on the seemingly endless grass and acacia covered plains epitomizes Africa’s game parks.
Day 8: Serengeti – Ngorongoro
After an extensive morning game drive we leave the Serengeti and enter the Ngorongoro Conservation area where we witness the spectacle of the Masai tribal people herding their cattle amongst the wildlife, still living their customary lifestyle as they have for centuries. Tonight we will camp at the renowned Simba camp on the edge of the magnificent Ngorongoro crater.
Day 9: Ngorongoro – Masai
At first light we make the daring descent into the crater in our smaller 4×4 safari vehicles and here we explore this marvel of nature with its sheer walls and fertile plains. With the possibility to view almost all of Africa’s mammals, including the rare Black Rhino at close range in open plains, this has to be the finest game viewing available. Returning to Simba camp, we will enjoy lunch before exiting the park and descending the escarpment to our camp.
Day 10: Masai Village
Today we will explore the village and its surrounds on foot, we will spend time absorbing the unique culture hoping to experience the Masai dancing and will barter in the markets – all the time witnessing the traditional way of life.
