Trail unbelievable migration paths from Masai Mara to Serengeti National Park while exploring the most famous parks in Kenya/Tanzania on this 8 day, 7 night Africa Safari Tour – with additional Gorilla trekking experiences.

This is a year-round safari with several game viewing experiences throughout Kenya and Tanzania. Your safari starts in Nairobi, Kenya where you will travel to the world famous Masai Mara Game Reserve. Game drives are held during both morning and afternoon accompanied by expert guides in search of the abundant wildlife. Here you have the chance to witness a variety of species of birds, hippopotamus, elephants, wildebeest, thomson’s gazelle, giraffe, zebra, topi, cheetah, lion, leopard and more

Next, you will board a flight to Seronera in Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. One of the top safari destinations in the world. We will spend our days on game drives in the vast Serengeti plains with chances to view the great wildebeest migration, along with several other inhabitants.

Last, we travel to Africa’s “8th Natural Wonder of the World”, the Ngorongoro Crater, by 4 x 4 safari vehicles to explore the crater before ascending back to the Ngorongoro Sopa Lodge for dinner and overnight stay.

During this safari you will be accompanied by an English speaking tour guide and transported in comfortable 4×4 tour vans. Below you will find the full itinerary.

Guests will be picked up at the hotel for an exciting day of seeing local attractions and learning about Kenya! Stopping at the Giraffe Center, you will have a chance to read about the amazing rescue of the Rothschild’s giraffe and will get the opportunity to feed them! Moving on, we will travel to the Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage. There we will see baby elephants be fed and cared for by their handlers. These elephants are eventually released into the wild when possible. Our last stop will be the Kazuri Bead Factory. Our guests will get an interpretive tour and watch the making of beads by Massai women. After the tour, we will have a chance to support these local artists by purchasing their handmade jewelry.

Day spent viewing game in the vast Serengeti plains morning and afternoon game drives are offered. Serengeti is easily Tanzania’s most famous national park, and it’s also the largest, at 14,763 square kilometers of protected area that borders Kenya’s Masai Mara Game Park It is the Migration for which Serengeti is perhaps most famous. Over a million wildebeest and about 200,000 zebras flow south from the northern hills to the southern plains for the short rains every October and November, and then swirl west and north after the long rains in April, May and June. So strong is the ancient instinct to move that no drought, gorge or crocodile infested river can hold them back. The Wildebeest travel through a variety of parks, reserves and protected areas and through a variety of habitat. Join us to explore the different forms of vegetation and landscapes of the Serengeti ecosystem and meet some of their most fascinating inhabitant
