African Safaris and Travel - Our safaris reflect every travelers style, time frame and budget!
Alternative camps and lodges used can be
substituted with others, which may be inside the national
Parks, or with those located in private concession areas
outside of National Parks. Naturally, by doing so the costs
are subject to change, but one benefit is that by doing so,
one can also do activities which are normally not available
within the National Parks, e.g. night game drives and game
walks. A very popular safari for honeymooners and families
with children alike!
On your arrival in Nairobi, you will be met by a company
representative, and transferred to the Norfolk Hotel.
Overnight on a bed and breakfast basis.
Early Breakfast at the Norfolk. After an early breakfast
you will be transferred to Nairobi Wilson Airport for your
scheduled service flight to Samburu National Park. On
arrival at the airstrip in Samburu, you met and transferred
to Samburu Intrepids Club.
Lunch at the Club. In actual fact there are three
adjoining reserves - Samburu, Buffalo Springs and Shaba,
situated in arid country north of Mount Kenya, and watered
by the Uaso Ngiro River and natural springs.
In the afternoon there will be a game drive. Dinner and
overnight at Samburu Intrepids Club or similar
Morning and afternoon game drives. All meals and
overnight at Samburu Intrepids Club or similar.
The Reserve is very scenic, with craggy hills and
everywhere Doum palms following the water courses. Some
unusual animal species can be found here; the reticulated
giraffe, Oryx, Lesser Kudu, Grevy's zebra, and the Gerenuk,
known as the "giraffe gazelle".
Most of the game viewing takes place around the forests
along the river, and this is a good place to spot the
Breakfast at the club. Morning transfer to the airstrip
for the Air Kenya flight to the Masai Mara. On arrival at
the airstrip, met and transferred to Little Governors Camp.
Afternoon game drive.
The Masai Mara Reserve is one of Africa's best known
wildlife areas, and is part of the Serengeti ecosystem.
A land of undulating hills and rolling grasslands it
supports a large animal population. Even a casual visitor is
treated to the sight of lions in prides sometimes numbering
more than thirty beasts with a handsome black-maned male in
dominance; a cheetah at great speed runs down its prey; a
Leopard in the lower branches with its kill. Another
attraction of staying in Little Governor's is that it is
situated away from most other camps and lodges, and game
drives tend to avoid other parts of the reserve which can,
at times, be relatively crowded. Dinner and overnight at
Little Governors Camp or Il Moran* (* Surcharges may apply).
Morning and afternoon game drives. In the Mara river
there are crocodiles sunning themselves on the banks , and
hippos playing in the water.
Elephant, Cape buffalo, giraffe, Topi, gazelle are all in
abundance, and during the months of July to September the
great migration of wildebeest and zebras spill over from the
he sight of these beasts legging it across the Mara
River, avoiding both the crocodiles in the river, and the
predators harassing them from behind is amazing, and the
topic of some of the most spectacular photography ever seen.
All meals and overnight at Little Governors Camp or Il
Moran* (* Surcharges may apply).
Early morning game drive. Depart at 11 AM with a
scheduled flight to Nairobi, and connect with the Air Kenya
flight to Arusha. Transfer to Mountain Village and enjoy a late lunch
followed by a walk around Lake Duluti. Dinner and overnight
at Mountain Village.
Morning drive to Gibbs Farm. Pay a visit to the IRAQW
Tribes people, and view their manyattas (homes) and
lifestyle. After lunch you will continue onwards to the
Ngorongoro Conservation area. "It is impossible to give a
fair description of the size and beauty of the Crater, for
there is nothing with which one can compare it. It is one of
the Wonders of the World." This is how the Crater is
described by Bernard Grzimek in his classic "Serengeti Shall
The area is given over to Wildlife Conservation and
comprises 8300 square kilometers of which the Crater is 260
square kilometers, and consists of grasslands, swamps,
forests, rivers, and even an arid area of shifting dunes.
The Crater supports a year round resident population of
varied wildlife , and as the game is concentrated into a
relatively small area you are likely to see Lion, Elephant,
Hyaena, Jackal, Cheetah, the very rare Black Rhino, primates
and many more. The area is also home to the proud and
colorful Masai tribe. Dinner and overnight at Ngorongoro
Breakfast at the lodge. Morning descent into the Crater
with picnic lunches for a full day tour. Dinner and
overnight at Ngorongoro Serena Lodge. (If in future the
Ngorongoro Conservation authority may limit the crater tour
to 6 hours , and should they we will advise you )
Breakfast at the lodge. Leave after breakfast and drive
via Ol Duvai Gorge to the Serengeti National Park, arriving
for lunch and an afternoon game drive. The Gorge is about 50
kilometers long and in some places 90 meters deep.
Commonly heralded as the "Cradle of Mankind" it was made
famous by the discovery in 1959 of the remains of early man.
Your stop includes a visit to the small museum overlooking
the Gorge. Lunch at Serengeti Serena Lodge. Afternoon game
drive and overnight at Serengeti Serena Lodge.
Morning and afternoon game drives. The Serengeti National
Park is one of the most popular and spectacular game areas
in East Africa, covering an area of 14,765 square
kilometers, teaming with game.
A particular feature of the Serengeti is the annual
migration of the wildebeest and zebra herds. Each year,
after the traditional "short" rains in November the
migration starts when the herds amass in their thousands on
the plains below the Ngorongoro highlands.
During February they move north and west following the
rains and the new grasslands, and they start to move into
the Masai Mara in July. In October they move back to
Tanzania. This annual phenomenon involves more than 1.5
million animals, including the lion and other predators who
follow the herds for easy pickings. The whole process
affects the lives of thousands of other species who rely on
the passage of the migration for their survival, even the
insects, not to mention the trees and plants which rely on
the droppings for their fertilization. All meals and
overnight at Serengeti Serena Lodge.
Transfer to the airstrip. Fly Regional air scheduled
flight to Kilimanjaro airport. On arrival, picnic lunches.
Connect your flight to Nairobi. On arrival at Wilson
