13 Days Kenya and Tanzania Safari
This 13 days Kenya and Tanzania Safari takes you through some of Africa’s most famous safari areas, such as Kenya’s Masai Mara and Tanzania’s Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater.
In what promises to be a memorable safari adventure, you’ll have thrilling wildlife encounters with the Big 5 (lion, leopard, rhino, elephant, and buffalo) on horseback, in a hot-air balloon, or on a traditional game drive. Of course, you’d be negligent if you didn’t time your trip to coincide with nature’s largest annual spectacle: the Great Wildebeest Migration.

The destination is Lake Nakuru, where you will begin your Kenyan safari. A location for the ornithologists, Lake Nakuru presents you with every shade of pink you imagine as flocks of flamingos feed, display, and dance over the water. More than 400 species of bird feed here throughout the year, as well as plentiful other animals for you to gaze upon in wonder.
Your evening will be spent in your lodge or tented camp, within the national park, where the evening’s dinner will be served.
Breakfast is provided in the early hours of the morning prior to the departure for Lake Naivasha. During your game drive through the park, you will have the opportunity to observe various animals going about their daily activities, including the Rothchild giraffe, waterbuck, zebra, and baboon.
Upon your arrival at Lake Naivasha, lunch will be provided at your place of lodging, which may be a tented cabin or a lodge. The time thereafter is at your discretion, and you may choose to take an additional boat excursion across the lake.
Guests are cordially invited to stroll around the lake and observe the transition from twilight to evening across the park as evening sweeps across the plains and waters. Dinner is provided at your lodging in preparation for an exciting day ahead.
Breakfast is served prior to embarking on a bicycle excursion through Hells Gate Park, which also offers an opportunity to stroll along the gorges. The region is renowned throughout the globe for its fascinating geology, which includes star rock towers, natural geysers, and geothermal steam that emerges directly from the ground.
After an invigorating exploration of this breathtaking landscape, your African safari will continue towards Masai Mara National Reserve. After being served lunch, you will immediately embark on a game drive through this magnificent park.
The Masai Mara is an awe-inspiring wilderness where millions of animals hunt, graze, and spend their entire lives. In addition to the “big five” of African safari, you should be ready to observe
Zebra Cheetah Wildebeest
Additionally, an abundance of fauna in its natural habitat.
The evening supper will be provided at the lodge or tented camp where you are staying.
After a hearty breakfast, your will head out with your expert African safari guide for a full day enjoying the splendours this park has to offer. You will see the full day unfold in the Masai Mara, from early morning activity, to midday lazing, and afternoon feeding.
The plains spread forth to the horizon, dotted with acacia trees that offer shade and rest for the cheetahs and leopards you’re here to see. To ensure maximum viewing time, your lunch will be served picnic style, affording you chance to spend as much time as possible surrounded by the dream-like landscape.
An afternoon tracking and watching the wildlife as they pass their day will culminate in dinner served at your accommodation.
On this day, you will be transferring from Masai Mara to Serengeti National Park (through Isebania border). This transfer takes almost the whole day but during a great part of the journey (in the morning in Masai Mara and in the afternoon in the Serengeti), you will be doing game drive as well.
You’ll enjoy the afternoon game drive en-route to your tented camp.
Just the word Serengeti evokes images of endless grasslands, abundant animals, and luscious landscape ripe for exploration. After breakfast at your camp, you’ll head off on your journey of discovery through these stunning plains, exquisitely filled with the wildlife you’d expect from such a place.
If you’re lucky to arrive in the Serengeti between April and October, you will be able to see the largest animal migration on the planet – the movement of the wildebeest and zebra of the Serengeti. Even if your African safari doesn’t coincide with the event, you will still see massive herds of herbivores and packs of their hunters as you make your way through the park.
Lunch comes picnic style, so you can stay in the park without backtracking to camp. As the day cools, animals become more active again and your expert Tanzania safari guide will assist the tracking, spotting, and identification of the animals you’re going to find. Evening ends with dinner at your camp or lodge.
The second full ranging through the Serengeti can have some flexibility. You can choose a schedule that matches the previous day, or ask your guide to take you on a morning game drive, take a rest and have some time to relax in the afternoon, then embark upon an evening-time safari through the park.
An evening safari will give you a different perspective on the Serengeti. After dark there is a different level of activity; the temperature cools, prey become more vulnerable. Your chance to see different animals increases, and you will see a new side to the plains of the Serengeti if you choose this configuration to your day.
Your meals will be served according to your plan for the day, and will be provided from your camp.
Your morning starts inside the Serengeti and you have the chance to make an optional visit to a Masai village. Here, you will be greeted with a traditional song and dance, and be taken on a tour of the village and get to see inside a traditional home. The Masai people are famed for the relationship with the land and animals of the plains of East Africa.
To continue your understanding of how humans formed their relationship with Earth, you are invited to take an optional trip to Olduvai Gorge: the cradle of humanity. As you leave the Serengeti to head to the Ngorongoro Crater, you pass this most important of sites to humanity.
In the gorge is the first evidence of modern human with tool making artefacts having been found. You have the chance to visit the archaeological site of Drs. Leakey to get an in-depth understanding of the significance of the site.
Your day will finish inside the extinct volcanic crater of Ngorongoro, where dinner will be served at your camp or lodge.
