Tanzania and Kenya 12 Day Safari

Masai Mara Game Reserve

12 Day Tanzania and Kenya Safari

Join me for a 12 Day safari in Tanzania and Kenya – two of Africa’s top wildlife destinations. We will visit Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya and Central Serengeti , Ngorongoro Crater and Tarangire National Park in Tanzania, which all offer an unbelievable safari experience. Please find a summarised version of the safari itinerary below.

Lions in Masai Mara

Day 1 - 4: Masai Mara National Reserve

After meeting you at the airport we will depart for a 4 night stay in the famous Masai Mara Game Reserve. Depending on what time we arrive we will depart for a late afternoon game drive. Our lodge is perfectly situated to explore this great African Game Reserve. This is the best area in the Mara to see big game up close and some of the many mammals to be seen here include Black-backed Jackal, Bat-eared Fox, Banded Mongoose, Spotted Hyena, Serval Cat, African Lion, Leopard, Cheetah, Bush Hyrax, African Elephant, Common Zebra, Hippopotamus, Common Warthog, Masai Giraffe, African Buffalo, Eland, Steenbuck, Bohor Reedbuck, Thomson's and Grant's Gazelles, Impala, Topi, Coke's Hartebeest and thousands of Wildebeest. We will also see many massive Nile Crocodiles, some over 15ft in length, basking in the sun along the banks of the Mara River.
Overnight: Mara Leisure Lodge (Full board)

Serengeti Lions

Day 5 - 8: Serengeti National Park

Today we will exit Masai Mara and drive to the border crossing point of Ezibania. Here we will cross over into Tanzania and straight into the famous Serengeti Game Reserve, one of the best known reserves in Africa. We will stay at the Serengeti Kati Kati Camp for 3 nights from where we will enjoy the excellent game viewing offered by this park.
Overnight: Serengeti Kati Kati Camp (Full board)

Male Elephant in Ngorongoro Crater

Day 8 - 10: Ngorongoro Crater

Today after breakfast, we do our last game drive as we depart Serengeti for Ngorongoro Crater where our lodge will be located just at the rim-edge of the crater. The perfect location of the lodge close to the crater is ideal for enjoying the excellent game viewing close to the lodge and means only a short drive between the lodge and the park.
Supported by a year round water supply and fodder, the Ngorongoro National Park supports a vast variety of animals, which include herds of wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, eland, warthog, hippo, and giant African elephants. Another big draw card to this picturesque national park, is its dense population of predators, which include lions, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs and the ever elusive leopard.
Overnight: Ngorongoro Serena Lodge (Full board)

Tarangire National Park

Day 10 - 12: Tarangire National Park

After breakfast depart to Maramboi Tented Camp, located at the eastern shore of Lake Manyara. We plan to arrive in time for lunch and in the afternoon enjoy a guided Bush Walk to the Manyara Lake Shore and learn about this Ecosystem. The following morning we will drive with a picnic lunch to Tanzania’s third largest National park for game drive. Tarangire National Park offers the biggest elephant population in the region and the majestic baobab trees are an interesting feature of the Park.
Overnight: Maromboi Tented Camp (Full Board)


Day 12: Departure

Depending on what time your flight departs we will plan our morning activity and make our way to the Airport for the flight home.
