Itinerary

An early morning drive to Maasai Mara National Reserve. It holds on as one of the few places
left on earth where wildlife still lives comparatively undisturbed, in the numbers that once
roamed the plains and forests of Africa. As the northern tip of the vast Serengeti ecosystem,
the Mara hosts the spectacular seasonal migration of many thousands of Wildebeest, Zebras
and attendant predators. Arrive in time for lunch followed by an afternoon game drive.
Dinner and overnight at campsite or lodge

Two full days in the Maasai Mara with flexible schedule and unlimited mileage. After breakfast,
we have a full day game drive with packed lunch provided. The reserve is well known for its
black-manned lion as well as its abundant resident wildlife and its one of the few places where
it's possible to see the big five during a morning's game drive. Many of the cheetahs are so
tame they seek shelter from the hot sun under one's vehicle and several even climb onto the
roof to get better view of prospective prey.
For the bird enthusiast, almost 500 species have been recorded: among these 16 species of
eagle, plus many hawks and falcons, 6 species of vultures, 8 species of storks, 4 of bustard
(including the Kori bustard, the world's heaviest flying bird), and 9 species of sun birds.
Dinner and overnight at campsite or lodge

Day 3 :
MaasaiMara

After breakfast, marvel at the majestic Big Five and diverse fauna. Opt for an enchanting hot air balloon safari, soaring above the savannah for a panoramic view of the majestic terrain (extra cost applies). Alternatively, delve into Maasai culture with a visit to a traditional village, where vibrant traditions come to life. This optional experience provides a unique insight into the Maasai way of life (extra cost applies). Customize your safari adventure, balancing the thrill of wildlife encounters with cultural exploration, ensuring an unforgettable day in the heart of Kenya's natural wonders.

We will initiate the day with an early morning game drive in Maasai Mara while driving out of the National reserve. After border formalities, drive to the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. On the way, you will have option to stop at the famous Olduvai Gorge, where Dr. Louis and Mary Leakey made their discovery of the first man that walked the earth. After attending, a short lecture describing the archeological digs and geology of the gorge, you’ll have time to visit the small museum. It will be a long day of driving but the game drives in and out of the parks can be surprisingly incredible.

Day 5 :
Serengeti

Full day in the Serengeti with flexible schedule and unlimited mileage. As you crest the hillside, spread out before you, as far as the eyes can see, is the vast Serengeti. Serengeti mean "endless plains" in Kiswahili and this 6,900 sq. mile (18,000 sq. km) park is inhabited by more than 2 million large animals including more than a million wildebeest, hundreds of thousands of plains zebras, and Thomson's gazelles. Large predators including lions, cheetahs, and hyenas are drawn to the area by this abundance of prey which migrate throughout the park. Many smaller animals like rock hyrax, bat eared foxes, mongoose, honey badger, jackals, monkeys, baboons and African hares also inhabit the area along with nearly 500 species of birds. Afternoon game drive en-route to campsite.

Day 6 :

Serengeti means "endless plains" in Kiswahili and this 6,900 sq. mile (18,000 sq. km) park is inhabited by more than 2 million large animals including more than a million wildebeest, hundreds of thousands of plains zebras, and Thomson's gazelles. Large predators including lions, cheetahs, and hyenas are drawn to the area by this abundance of prey which migrates throughout the park.

Afternoon game drive en-route to the campsite.

Today you will wake up very early to do an early morning safari before breakfast, to spot the animals when they are more active and also to have a fantastic sunrise in front of you. The sunrise in the African Savannah is one of the most beautiful experiences one can have. After the game drive, return to the camp for brunch. In the afternoon transfer to Ngorongoro, the 8th natural wonder of the world. With walls 2,000ft high and a crater floor that spreads for 102 sq. miles, the crater is a virtual Noah's Ark, inhabited by almost every species of wildlife indigenous to East Africa including the rare black rhino. The crater has the greatest concentration of wildlife on the planet. It contains a river, several swamps, a soda lake that, from the top, looks like steam, full of flamingoes, a forest and open plains. The large bull elephants that reside here have extremely large tusk, due to the rich mineral content of the volcanic soil and its grasses.

We will start the day very early and descend into the crater floor for an incredible morning of wildlife in one of the most stunning places on Earth. After the game drive, there will be time for a picnic lunch near the beautiful hippo Lake. After lunch, we will have time for a short game drive and then ascend the crater and exit Ngorongoro Conservation Area towards Arusha. We expect to be back in Arusha around 5 pm although we are flexible in case there is a(flight) to catch or another situation.
