DAY 2: AMBOSELI NATIONAL PARK

Our safari begins with a morning drive to Amboseli National Park on the border with Tanzania. Mount Kilimanjaro provides a dramatic backdrop to Amboseli as it rises almost 20,000 feet above the plain and the concentration of wildlife drawn to the park in the dry season. Amboseli boasts a variety of ecosystems – marshland, scrubby plain, acacia woodlands – supporting a diverse range of wildlife. Following lunch, you’ll spend the afternoon viewing some of this diversity, notably the park’s elephants, which are numerous, and giraffes, and predators including lions and cheetahs.

DAY 3: AMBOSELI NATIONAL PARK

Day Three features morning and afternoon game drives over the park’s dusty roads (some of these are impassable during the rainy season due to the ashy soil), and you’re likely to spot wildebeest and zebra attracted to the marshes and swamps fed by the melting snows of Kilimanjaro. You may also spot white rhinos on the fringes of the marshes as well as a great variety of birdlife (some 425 species of bird populate the park). With Kilimanjaro providing a dramatic backdrop, your photographs will be stunning. East Africa game avoids the mid-day heat by dozing in the shade. You can avoid the mid-day heat in the lodge’s pool, at the bar, or like the beasts of the savannah, with a nap in the shade.

DAY 4: NGORONGORO CRATER CONSERVANCY

After breakfast, take a drive in the Ngorongoro Crater Conservancy Area, with a mid-day break for a picnic lunch. We visit the Olduvai Gorge and museum, the site of the remains of prehistoric man. The Ngorongoro Crater was formed millions of years ago by the collapse of a long extinct volcano. The resulting 100 square mile depression, surrounded by a 2000 foot volcanic rim, contains water and forage necessary to support most of the familiar African wildlife. Don’t be surprised to see Maasai herders and their livestock, especially on the crater rim; the Conservation Area protects both wildlife and Maasai.

DAY 5: NGORONGORO CRATER CONSERVANCY

Spend another day on the crater floor viewing game; as many as 30,000 animals populate the crater. Lions, cheetahs, and jackals prey upon large herds of zebra, wildebeest, and antelope. The lake on the floor of the crater supports wading hippos and a myriad of birdlife. Elephants are rare within the crater, though lone, non-breeding bulls roam the region, their great tusks reaching out before them. Arrange to visit a local Maasai village and see how this proud, resourceful people live in harmony with the animals.

DAY 6: SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK

Life in the Serengeti is a complex and dynamic ecological system in which all the animals and plants interact both with each other and with their environment. No organism is static or exists in isolation and all are dependent on the rains. The park is made up of several different vegetation zones: in the dry south are the short and long grassland plains, where an average of only 50cm of rain falls per year. In the centre lies an area of acacia savannah whilst the western corridor marks a region of wooded highlands and ‘black cotton’ soil curving in a great swathe to the edge of Lake Victoria. To the north is wooded grassland, which concentrates along the watercourses and tributaries of the Grumeti and Mara Rivers.

DAY 7: SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK

Set high on the saddle of tree-clad ridge commanding panoramic views over the endlessly rolling reaches and volcanic reefs of the Serengeti, the Lodge is the ultimate fusion of traditional African architecture and world-class style. Drawing its inspiration from the circular ‘Rondavel’ dwellings and winding paths of a traditional Maasai village, the Lodge features thickly-thatched, stone-built rooms, spaciously set amongst groves of indigenous trees that are cooled by sparkling streams and papyrus-fringed ponds. The circular bar, its roof supported by massive carven figures of warriors, maidens and elders, looks out over the sky-blue, ‘vanishing horizon’ swimming pool towards the miles of lion-gold savannah that lie below, wherein is enacted the thunderous theatre of the million-strong wildebeest migration. As for views, from lilac-streaked sunrise, to diamond-domed night, the searingly sensational Serengeti delivers a series of timeless volcanic vistas that are second to none.

DAY 8: MAASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE

Your safari begins in the Maasai Mara Reserve and domain of the Maasai, Kenya’s cattle-herding nomads determined to preserve their traditions. The Mara is magnificent, home to Kenya’s richest concentration of wildlife, and regarded by many travelers as an essential stop on any tour of Africa. When westerners think of Africa and safari, this is place they imagine – golden grassland plains pocked with acacia, wildebeests, zebras, lions, and jackals bound by together by the cycle of life and death. Three days here will only scratch at the surface of the wonders of the Mara.
