DAY 1: ARUSHA-LAKE MANYARA

Arrive at (JRO) Kilimanjaro International Airport where you will be met by your private driver/guide who will escort you for the duration of your safari in Tanzania. Transfer from Arusha to Lake Manyara in time for lunch. This afternoon enjoy a game drive in Lake Manyara National Park in search of the elusive tree-climbing lion.

Lake Manyara is dramatically situated on top of the Mto Wa Mbu escarpment, overlooking the vast expanse of the Great Rift Valley. The 66 rooms blend gracefully with the serene natural surroundings and the lodge is located only a few minutes from Lake Manyara National Park. For those who want some time out of their vehicles, the lodge supports a number of nature trails and also has a resident naturalist to enhance the experience. Guests may also choose to relax at an observation post or by the pool.

DAY 2: LAKE MANYARA-NGORONGORO

This morning is at leisure before transferring to Gibbs Farm, located in the Ngorongoro Crater highlands, for lunch. Continue to the Ngorongoro Crater, the largest unbroken caldera in the world and the first sight of it is breathtaking.

Rhino Lodge is situated on the eastern rim of the crater. The 92 rooms of the lodge are built in the traditional African rondavel style. There is a beautifully designed dining room, a bar, a well-stocked gift shop and a swimming pool.

Accommodation: Rhino Lodge

DAY 3: NGORONGORO CRATER

Enjoy an early breakfast before venturing out on your game drive. From your lodge on the crater rim descend to the crater floor by 4WD safari vehicle for a morning unlike any other you will experience in Africa. Spot some of the rarer species in Africa like the black rhino against the spectacular backdrop of the crater’s forest covered walls. Enjoy a picnic lunch amongst the hippos and birds before visiting a Maasai village this afternoon.

The floor of the crater is only 100 square miles but is home to around 30,000 animals with a high concentration of predators and some of the finest black-maned lions in Africa. Rhinos can be seen with calves at heel. Eland and waterbuck appear not to notice the human visitors, enabling photographers to shoot at ease. On the lake in the middle of the crater you may see thousands of flamingos, fluttering and shimmering like a pink heat haze. Zebra and wildebeest account for almost half the animals – gazelle, buffalo, eland, hartebeest and wart hog can also be seen.

Accommodation: Rhino Lodge

DAY 4:  SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK

Following breakfast this morning transfer to Olduvai Gorge, the cradle of mankind, made famous by Dr Leaky’s discovery of fossil fragments dating back some 3.5 million years. After a picnic lunch continue the drive to your lodge, centrally located in the Serengeti National Park. Enjoy game viewing en route.

Tortilis Lodge is located high on a hill offering magnificent views of the Serengeti Plains. The lodge is pure Africa. Rustic and natural, circular like an African village, its 66 rooms make up a series of rondavels. The simple style is enhanced with sophisticated detail in the form of traditional handicraft, such as wood carvings, beadwork and pottery designs. The lodge offers its own unique game trails devised in conjunction with park consultants to allow enjoyment of the Serengeti’s unequaled variety of game.

DAY 5: SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK

Spend a full day exploring the Serengeti by 4WD vehicle with thrilling morning and afternoon game drives. Whether this is your first time on safari or a return trip, the Serengeti will not disappoint.

The Serengeti National Park is arguably the most famous national park in the world. The Serengeti perhaps defines the safari experience as surely as the wildlife that inhabits it. Established in 1951, and covering an area of almost 15,000 square kilometers, an area comparable to the state of Connecticut or Northern Ireland, the Serengeti hosts a fantastically diverse ecosystem. The principal attraction of the Serengeti is the passing of the wildebeest migration, when 1.5 million wildebeest, hundreds of thousands of zebra, gazelle and other game that follow close behind make their way across the plains, stalked by the inevitable predators who make the most of the feast close at hand.

There will be a trip briefing at the hotel at approximately 6 pm. Prior to that, the day is yours to spend as you please, and you can arrive at any time. Nairobi, the capital of Kenya, was established at the turn of the 20th century by Europeans as a stores depot during the construction of the East African Railway. Without plan or design, it established itself as the capital of the British protectorate, and today has a population of around three million.

This delightful property is situated on a 1,300 acre wildlife sanctuary. After lunch, the afternoon is yours. Enjoy the Country Club’s facilities and surroundings, or set off on a nature walk through unspoiled terrain. On this walk you’ll have the opportunity to get up close to some zebra or giraffes that have wandered into the beautiful surroundings. The Aberdare Range is just south of the equator and forms part of the eastern rim of the Great Rift Valley, a land brimming with abundant wildlife and spectacular scenery. The area is also famous for being the headquarters of Dedan Kimathi, leader of the 1950s Mau Mau uprising.

Meal Plan: {B, L, D}

DAY 11: ABERDARES NATIONAL PARK

Embark on a game drive through the park after breakfast. Afterwards, you will drive back to the country club for lunch. On your travels, keep a close eye out for the elusive golden cat or bongo, both rare sightings in the area. More common to see are leopard, elephant, baboon, colobus monkey and a wide array of birds of prey. Afterwards, bring a day pack for your overnight stay at The Ark, the feature stay on this trip. It’s a unique lodge modelled on Noah’s Ark, overlooking a floodlit waterhole and salt lick which attracts an impressive array of wildlife. The Ark’s several balconies and lounges provide superb vantage points for game viewing. A ground level bunker affords excellent photographic opportunities and takes you closer than you might believe possible to the animals. When night falls, watch with excitement as creatures flock in large numbers to the watering hole. Your resident guide can alert you of must-see animal sightings via a buzzer linked to your room.

Accommodation: The Ark or similar (1 night)
Meal Plan: {B, L, D}

DAY 12: LAKE NAKURU NATIONAL PARK

After breakfast, enjoy another short game drive en route to Aberdare Country Club to pick up your luggage before continuing along the Great Rift Valley to Nakuru (approximately 6–7 hours). En route you will have a quick stop at Thomson’s Falls. On arrival at the lodge have a late lunch before an afternoon game drive within the National Park. Here you can hope to see the White Rhino and a big cat or two. After the game drive perhaps have a quick dip in the pool before dinner.

Accommodation: Lake Nakuru Lodge or similar
Meal Plan: {B, L, D}

DAY 13: MASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE

Early this morning there will be another chance to enjoy a game drive and get a different perspective of the park before returning to the lodge for breakfast. Head southwest to your next destination, the Masai Mara (approximately 6–7 hours). Here lies arguably one of the finest game reserves on the continent. Take in vistas of rolling green plains and riverine woodlands, not to mention many species of game. On today’s game drive on the way to your tented camp, you could have the good fortune to observe a black-maned lion, leopard or a cheetah. These predators find an abundant food supply in the massive herds of wildebeest, zebra, Thomson’s and Grant’s gazelle, all of which roam these verdant grasslands. This is the land of the famed and fated annual migration of wildebeest.
End the day watching the sun go down across the Mara while enjoying drinks and canapes.

Accommodation: Mara Leisure Tented Camp or similar
Meal Plan: {B, L, D}

DAY 14: MASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE

Rise a little before dawn to begin your morning game drive. As the sun rises, you shouldn’t have any trouble spotting wildlife, as this is often one of the most active times of day for animals. After what is hopefully an exciting morning’s drive, you will return to camp for lunch and to relax during the heat of the day. Set off again in the afternoon – this time you can expect to return to camp at around sunset. Depending on wildlife movements, you may not return to camp in the middle of the day, making for one full game drive instead (in this case you will stop for a picnic lunch). Accommodation while in ‘The Mara’ is a comfortable permanent-tented camp. Once you return to the tented camp there is an option to go back out and visit a Maasai Village. These visits can be fascinating to learn about the different culture and way of life of traditional Maasai people. However, please note that these villages exist primarily as businesses. You will be charged an entry fee of USD20-25 and they will try very hard to sell souvenirs to you.
An optional balloon ride over the Masai Mara at sunrise is highly recommended, an unforgettable experience for many travellers.

Notes: If you have pre-booked a hot air balloon ride, you will be picked up and driven to the launch site, receive a safety briefing from your pilot and help inflate the balloon. You’ll glide through the dawn, sometimes at tree height, enjoying amazing photo opportunities. Upon landing you’ll be treated to a bush breakfast before returning to your vehicle. This is a popular activity with limited places, so on this trip it’s offered as a pre-booked activity which guarantees you a place. If you choose to wait and book this activity locally on the ground you may risk missing out on a place.

Accommodation: Mara Leisure Tented Camp or similar
Masai Mara National Reserve – Balloon ride (from price) – USD550
Masai Mara – Maasai village visit – USD25

DAY 15: MAASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE- LAKE NAIVASHA

After breakfast, drive out of the park to Naivasha and arrive in good time for lunch. You may spend the afternoon at leisure or enjoy boat ride and a walking Safari at the Crescent Island (payable direct).
Lake Naivasha is a freshwater lake, and is home to an incredible variety of bird species, it’s the second largest and the highest lake of the Central
Rift Valley lakes. It’s at the center of a prosperous flower export business and being only one and a half hours from Nairobi, is a popular
