This safari endeavours to combine the highlights of both Kenya and Tanzania. We concentrate on the internationally acclaimed Game Parks that are known to be “the home of the Discovery Channel”. We will also visit lesser-known areas and will enjoy interaction with the local tribes, including the renowned Masai. Weather and road conditions will influence the route chosen on each safari and clients should be flexible in this regard. Clients should be equipped with an open mind and spontaneous disposition in order to best enjoy the superb offerings of the region.

Arrive in Nairobi and meet at our Hotel in the heart of this bustling city.

At 18h00 we conduct a pre-tour briefing before enjoying an own expense dinner at a local restaurant. (PD/-/-)

Jour 4 / Vallée du Grand Rift

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 Great 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. We camp the night. (PD/L/S)

Jour 5 / Lac 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. Return to camp. (PD/L/S)

Jour 6 / 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. (PD/L/S)

Jour 7 / 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. (PD/L/S)

Jour 8 / Lac 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. We will spend some time here before we enjoy an own expense dinner at a local restaurant. Camp the night at the waters edge. (PD/L/-)

Jour 9 / 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. We will traverse the Park west to east doing extensive game drives, and will spend a night at the active Seronera campsite. (PD/L/S)

Jour 10 / 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. The views from the camp are spectacular. (PD/L/S)

Jour 11 / 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. Here we will camp for two nights, literally amongst the Masai people. (PD/L/S)

Jour 12 / Village Masai

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. Camp the night. (PD/L/S)

Jour 13 / Arusha

After an early start we make our way toward Arusha, the town at the foothill of the beautiful Mount Meru. Here we will spend the afternoon exploring this lively town and its local markets. Tonight we will enjoy an own expense meal at a local restaurant. (PD/-/-)

Jour 14 / Transfert à Nairobi

After breakfast we set off to complete the circle back to Nairobi. ( On occasion we may use the shuttle bus to transfer clients.) This road travels through some spectacular scenery and on a clear day offers stunning views of the mighty Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain. En-route to Nairobi city, the transfer will pass via the airport to facilitate clients who are flying out today. Clients staying on in Nairobi or continuing their travels will be taken into the city centre. (PD/-/-)

Il est nécessaire d’avoir un esprit ouvert et flexible. Les voyages d’aventure peuvent être par nature imprévisibles, dû à la température, aux migrations d’animaux, aux conditions de la route et à une multitude d’autres facteurs
et inconvénients que l’on rencontre dans les pays en voie de développement
et qui peuvent nécessiter un changement d’itinéraire.
