11 Days / 10 Nights

Nairobi /Amboseli / Ngorongoro Crater/ Serengeti / Masai Mara

Day 2 – Saturday – Nairobi / Amboseli

Drive to the Amboseli National Park (240 KM/approximately 4 hours) for your stay at the Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge (standard room). This afternoon we enjoy our first game drive, across the game rich plains of one of East Africa’s most prolific wildlife areas. Lying within sight of the imposing shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro in neighbouring Tanzania, the expansive plains and infinite skies of Amboseli present us with a landscape that is truly African. Home to the proudly independent Masai, its dry savannahs thunder beneath the onslaught of the vast herds of wildebeest, zebra, impala and the elephants for which it is famed. Panoramas filled with lush swamplands and acacia forests provide ideal havens for myriad birds and small mammals, including bee-eaters, kingfishers, caracals and warthogs, whilst cheetahs, lion and hyena hunt the open grasslands.
Overnight: Amboseli Serena Lodge(B,L,D)

Day 3 - Sunday - Amboseli

Our morning and afternoon game drives see us in search of a staggering array of wilderness experiences, from the magnificent herds of game that sweep across these dusty plains, to the majestic sight of some of the 700 or so elephants for which Amboseli is justly famous. We may even be lucky enough to perhaps encounter the rare black rhino.

Day 5 – Tuesday – Ngorongoro Crater

After breakfast we enter the magnificent natural amphitheatre of Ngorongoro’s volcanic crater, home to some 30,000 animals and the remarkable setting for one of the most breathtaking wildlife experiences on the planet. The scene is classic Africa, with seemingly endless herds of big game, large predators and the sweep of the African savannah.

The oldest of Tanzania’s game parks, the Serengeti is a staggering spectacle of incredible diversity, where magnificent herds of wildebeest and zebra form an uneasy alliance against the ever present threat of some of Africa’s most powerful predators.

Day 10 – Sunday – Mara Game Reserve

With almost every species of animal great and small in the park, this is one of Africa’s premier wildlife areas and today we enjoy both morning and afternoon game drives in search of the ‘Big Five’ (lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino). This is safari at its best and Africa at its most spectacular. Heartland of the Masai, southwest Kenya presents a landscape where Africa is laid bare in all its majesty. Here the endless struggle for survival is played out across the vast open plains and riverine forests of this captivating land. Each year the Mara explodes into life, as the annual migration of great herds of wildebeest journey from the Serengeti to fresh pastures in the north. Between July and October the Mara River becomes the setting for the crossing of some 1.3 million animals, bringing with them the inevitable predators and the inevitable dramas.
