The Ultimate Safari – 11 Day

Witness The Great Migration unfolds at Tanzania’s northern circuit National Parks from Kenya Masai Mara National Park. This tour will let you follow the actual movement of the wildebeest migration in Tanzania and Kenya.

We visit the Ngorongoro Crater which is often called ‘Africa’s Eden’ and the ‘8th Natural Wonder of the World,’ a visit to the crater is a main drawcard for tourists coming to Tanzania and a definite world-class attraction. Did you know? It was formed some 2.5 million years ago from a volcanic mountain sinking due to inactivity, and was initially thought to be higher than Tanzania’s famous Kilimanjaro.

Itinerary

Pick up from the airport and transfer to Boulevard hotel for overnight stay.

Nairobi – Maasai Mara National Park

Pick up from hotel in the morning, have a Safari briefing session with our tour officer then drive Maasai Mara national park to arrive in time for Lunch. Afternoon game drive follows then returns to the camp for dinner and overnight stay at Mara Kichakani camp

Masai Mara

Depart the camp after breakfast and drive via the scenic floor of the Great Rift Valley to Masai Mara. We have lunch then proceed for evening game drives. Dinner and overnight stay at Mara Kichakani camp

Maasai Mara (Masai Mara) is known as Africa’s Greatest Wildlife Reserve, situated in southwest Kenya. Famous for the abundance of lion, the Great Wildebeest Migration and the Maasai people, well known for their distinctive custom and dress, it is without a doubt one of Africa’s most famous safari destinations.

Explore Masai Mara

Full days spent exploring the park in search of the big 5. Morning and afternoon game drives are offered. Optional hot air balloon safari can be arranged at an extra cost of US$ 450 per person. Dinner and overnight stay at Mara Kichakani Camp

The Mara offers wildlife in such variety and abundance that it is difficult to believe: over 450 species of animals have been recorded here. You will easily see lions, rhinos, hippos, crocodiles, giraffe, wildebeests, zebras, buffalo, warthogs, hyenas, jackals, wild dogs, buffalo, leopard, many kinds of antelopes and elephant. It is in the Mara that perhaps the most spectacular event of the natural world takes place. This is the annual migration of millions of wildebeest and zebra from the Serengeti (Tanzania) in search of water and pasture. Following on their heels are the predators of the savanna- lion, cheetah, wild dog, jackal, hyena and vultures.

Maasai Mara | Musoma Serengeti

We leave the campsite and drive through the southern part of the reserve viewing game as we proceed to the Tanzanian border at Isebania / Sirari. In Tanzania, we drive to Ikoma Tented Camp for dinner and overnight stay.

Musoma – Serengeti National Park

Enter serengeti via dabaka gate for a full day game drive. Then we drive south and west to the western corridor of the great Serengeti via Ndabaka Gate with a picnic lunch. The next day is also reserved for a full day of game viewing activities. Dinner and overnight stay at Ikoma safari camp

Tanzania’s oldest and most popular national park, also a world heritage site and recently proclaimed a 7th world wide wonder, the Serengeti is famed for its annual migration, when some six million hooves pound the open plains, as more than 200,000 zebra and 300,000 Thomson’s gazelle join the wildebeest’s trek for fresh grazing. Yet even when the migration is quiet, the Serengeti offers arguably the most scintillating game-viewing in Africa: great herds of buffalo, smaller groups of elephant and giraffe, and thousands upon thousands of eland, topi, kongoni, impala and Grant’s gazelle.

Serengeti –Ngorongoro Conservation Area via Olduvai Gorge

We view game as we drive southeast up into the magnificent Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Stop over at The Olduvai Gorge with picnic lunch en route. We spend the night at the Rhino Lodge at the crater rim.

The Olduvai Gorge cuts through rock beds layered in time sequence from 2 million years ago to the present and it is here where humanoid bones have been found dating back to over 1.75 million years including a direct ancestor of modern man. Fossil foot prints (over three million years old) have also been found here and are the most ancient footprints yet discovered.

There is an excellent site museum where you can explore the diggings with a guide and it is also a great place to view birds such as the purple grenadier, red and yellow barbet, speckle fronted weaver and slaty colored boubou.

Ngorongoro- Crater Tour

Breakfast then descend into the crater for a full day crater tour with packed lunches. Ascend the crater rim for dinner and overnight stay at Rhino Lodge.

The Ngorongoro Crater is often called ‘Africa’s Eden’ and the ‘8th Natural Wonder of the World,’ a visit to the crater is a main drawcard for tourists coming to Tanzania and a definite world-class attraction. The Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCA) is home of Ngorongoro Crater. It was formed some 2.5 million years ago from a volcanic mountain sinking due to inactivity, and was initially thought to be higher than Tanzania’s famous Kilimanjaro.
