About This Trip

There is genuinely no more enriching a travel experience than going on safari. To stand in the plains of East Africa watching a family of elephants at play, or a pride of lions at rest is simply jaw-dropping. Spend two weeks surrounded by rich, exciting nature staying in luxurious camps and allow your connection to the natural world become rock solid. 

 

The whole plan for safari is to try and see the Big 5 - lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard and rhino and there is nowhere in Africa where you are more likely to find them all. While the Big 5 are a highlight, every day will be filled with a riot of birdlife, from giant kingfishers to huge flamboyance of flamingos. You can see cheetah gracefully stalking the plains, black mambas lying across the road to warm themselves in the morning and huge crocodiles lazing in the waterholes. The abundance of wildlife is absolutely staggering. 

 

From the plains of Masai Mara and Amboseli to the extraordinary biosphere of the Ngorongoro crater, you will traverse ever-changing landscapes in search of that ‘perfect’ photo, guided at all times by your expert ranger and tracker. Each night you will lie in your luxury lodge surrounded by the calls of hyenas, the occasional deep-booming roar of a lion and feel more alive and connected than you ever have before.

highlights

Warning! Safari is highly addictive. The idea of driving around looking for animals for two weeks might sound dull to some, but there is genuinely a massive thrill as soon as you see your first big mammals. Suddenly, the odd-looking giraffe looks completely, perfectly in place and you just want to see more and more. Nobody we know that has done safari ever feels that they have seen enough. 

 

For this reason, we wanted to create a tour that completely immerses you in the wonders of safari mecca, East Africa. Not just spending time in the big-name reserves, but exploring in-depth, this incredible part of the world. So, we linked seven world-class game reserves, each with a high standard of accommodation and service, arranged the very best in park rangers and trackers and pushed to include as much time with these incredible wild creatures as possible. A true life-changing trip, there is no doubt about it. 


location

This trip starts in the capital of Kenya, Nairobi. After flying in, you will be collected by our representative and taken to your hotel in Nairobi for a briefing and overnight before your safari adventure begins. From Nairobi you head first to the Masai Mara, then to Lake Nakuru and Amboseli which concludes the Kenyan part of the trip. After Amboseli you will head into Tanzania to experience the beauty and wonder of the Manyara, Serengeti, Ngorongoro and Tarangire reserves before finishing up the trip flying out from Kilimanjaro International Airport in Tanzania.
