Travel Itinerary

Highlights you can experience

Destination 1: Nairobi

Your trip begins in Nairobi, a capital city throbbing with culture and the burgeoning energy of a fresh metropolis. A visit to the national museum presents African colors in full bloom. Don’t miss out on a visit to the parliament. Feel the buzz of a city market, sizzle in delight at the sight of slithering snakes (Snake Park), or feast at one of several eateries.

Destination 2: The Rift Valley

Today, you’ll enter the boundless Rift Valley, and be amazed at what you find. As the ground drops, you’ll come upon volcanic formations, steaming soda lakes, and undulating savannahs stuffed with wildlife. Highlights to be experienced include a hike to the top of a sloping cliff face known as Hell’s Gate.

Destination 3: Masai Mara

At 580 square miles, the Masai Mara Game Reserve houses all the wildlife (Big Five included) you could ever dream of seeing. Enter an ecosystem of abundant migration as you get close and personal with crocodiles, hippos, and the elusive cheetah in this delightfully untamed game reserve.

Destination 4: Central Serengeti

When it comes to national parks, the Serengeti is rightfully regarded as an A-lister. You’ll be left mesmerized by the migration of wildebeest (season dependent) that arrive from the Masai Mara in their millions, and the predators who await their arrival. Undulating lands of epic proportions contrast a vast sky where birds (over 270) swoop. The vegetation here is striking (acacia trees) for its unearthly appearance.

Destination 5: Ngorongoro Conservation Area

Covering 115 square miles, the world’s largest caldera will be a centerpiece of your tour. What you find at its surface will startle you: 25,000 animals that include the endangered black rhino feed from the surface of this forested land. If cats are your thing, then the densest population of lions can be found beneath earth’s surface, as can a who’s who of Tanzania’s most sought after animals.

Destination 6: Tarangire National Park

Tarangire National Park is a whopping 1,100 square miles of granitic ridges, rivers, valleys and swampland. You’ll be immersed in a setting that offers wild safari game drives full of unique sightings. Take a game drive here and explore the magic of this park where adventure will seem endless to you, as you gather memories of Africa that will surely never be forgotten.

Destination 7: Amboseli National Park

Two nights spent here will leave you bedazzled by starry skylines that blush red as the sun sets in Amboseli National Park. But don’t forget to take a step back and feast the eyes upon the striking snow capped Mount Kilimanjaro (19,000 feet tall) before the evening comes. You can hike here all day or take a safari game drive before an evening feast on the short grass plains of one of Africa’s finest lands.

Destination 8: Nairobi

A return to capital Nairobi is an opportunity to drink a coffee in a thriving neighborhood as you take in all that you’ve seen on your African adventure. It also presents another chance to indulge in African city living, with plenty of restaurants, retail outlets, and diverse districts to quench any urban thirst. Recap your journey in the capital as you enjoy one final, amber sunset.
