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 elusive Leopard.
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 Serengeti.
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 Not Die".
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.
