Day 1. Nairobi to Maasai Mara Reserve

Our adventure starts with a 2-night excursion to the Maasai Mara. We meet our local guides and board specialized vehicles and take the road via the Great Rift Valley, pausing for a photo at this geographic phenomenon. From here we continue on through the Masai lands and on to the Masaai Mara National Reserve.

Our tented camp is based at the edge of the unfenced reserve and near the park gates where we settle in, enjoy the surroundings and get ready for our game drive in the morning.

Day 2. Masai Mara National Reserve Highlights. Masai Mara National Reserve, Kenya.

Rising early, we board our game driving vehicles with our eagle-eyed guide at the wheel and enter the park to search for the 'Big 5' game and numerous species of antelope, birds and reptiles. The Masaai Mara forms the northern end of the path of the Great Migration in which over 2 Million wildebeest, zebra and antelope travel following the rains throughout the year. They travel across the border from Tanzania's Serengeti National Park and into the Masaai Mara between July - October each year.

The Masaai Mara has a rich population of wildlife outside of migration months and offers unrivaled game viewing opportunities. We pause for lunch and carry on with our game drive.

In the late afternoon, there is an option to see a nearby Masai Manyatta (settlement) to learn about their traditional ways and day-to-day life within their community surrounded by the wilderness of the Mara.

Day 3. Masai Mara to Nairobi

Leaving Kenya's famous national park behind, we make our way back across the Great Rift Valley to our camp for the night in the heart of Nairobi's Karen district.

Explore the vibrant city, eat at a local restaurant or simply enjoy your time reflecting on the last day's game driving at camp.

Day 4. Nairobi to Arusha, Tanzania Highlights. Maasai Village Walk, Arusha, Tanzania.

We leave the hustle and bustle of Nairobi and head south to the border and cross into Tanzania.

We stop at the quaint city of Arusha - halfway point from Cairo to Cape Town to replenish our supplies before driving to our camp - Meserani. This camp is home to a bird and reptile park, Masai cultural Museum and offers the opportunity to take a walk to the surrounding villages to learn more about this interesting culture and how they live and herd their livestock.

Day 5. Arusha to Serengeti National Park Highlights. Serengeti National Park, Tanzania.

Rising early, we meet our local safari guides and board 4x4 safari vehicles for our 2 night, 3-day excursion into the Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area. Known for its massive annual migration of wildebeest and zebra, the resident population of lion, cheetah, elephant, giraffe, and birds is also impressive.

We drive through the Ngorongoro Conservation area, viewing the crater itself, to the Serengeti plains where we enjoy a game drive to our camp for the evening.

It's easy to see why the Serengeti is so revered as a top safari destination - on entering we cross the flat plains with savannah stretching on as far as the eye can see. It is here that we start searching for Cheetah. On the massive granite outcrops we may see lion and as we near the riverbeds, seek out the leopards lazing in the bough of a nearby tree.

Tonight we bushcamp in the wilderness with the sounds of the wild surrounding our camp.

Day 6. Serengeti National Park to Ngorongoro Crater

This morning we are rewarded with a game drive into the crater itself. We wind down the steep crater walls to its base. Home to the 'Big 5' - lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino we spot the myriad of wildlife along the way on this game drive.

The crater is part of the larger Ngorongoro Conservation Area that is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the crater itself is listed as one of the 7 natural African wonders. Once you reach the base there is much to explore - despite the relatively small area (the crater is only 16-19km in diameter). With wetland, grassland and forest - there are many different habitat areas to support wildlife and you won't be disappointed after exploring these!

Returning to our camp, we pack up and make our way back to Arusha and the Meserani Snake Park.

Day 8. Arusha to Bagamoyo Highlights. Bagamoyo, Tanzania.
