8 Days Kenya & Tanzania Safari Package:

1

Day 1: Nairobi – Masai Mara

This morning we drive through the dramatic Great Rift Valley to the Masai Mara National Reserve. This enormous reserve is actually part of the vast Serengeti plains famously known for its spectacular great wildebeest’s migration and is home of the Big Five: Lion, Elephant, Leopard, Buffalo and Rhino. Lunch at Ashnil tented camp and relax before departing for the afternoon game run. The Mara Game Reserve one of the greatest wildernesses of the world large mammals is varied, and easy to see. Residents among the Parks are: Masai Giraffe, Buffalo, Eland and thousands of plain game including Impala, Zebra, Topi, bothThomson’s and Grants Gazelles.

Day 2: Masai Mara

After Breakfast depart for a full day game drive in the vast eco-system of the Mara searching for the big five and much more. The annual wildebeest migration is expected in the Masai Mara between July and early November. Millions of animals migrate to the Mara from Serengeti in search for fresh green pastures and water. It’s worth noting that every game drive is different from the other, and missing one is missing out on the fun.
Overnight at Basecamp Explorer Masai Mara.
Full day game drive: 8:00 am to 6:00 pm
Meal Plan: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Many wildebeest move north-west and cross into the Masai Mara, having to negotiate the Mara River from July onwards. The Mara River crossing is extraordinary

Day 3: Masai Mara-Serengeti

This morning after breakfast you will Transfer to the airstrip for flight to Serengeti National Park via Migori, Serengeti which was established in 1951, and covering an area of almost 15,000 sq.  km, Serengeti is one of the most spectacular game parks in East Africa From its short and long grass plains in the south, which give way to Acacia Savannah in the central area, to the hilly more densely wooded areas of the north, and the extensive woodland in the western corridor, Serengeti offers great variations both geographically as well as with the millions of animals, birds and plants that go to make up this complex ecosystem. The name comes from the Masai
siringet, “endless plains”. 1.5 million wildebeest (gnu), 300,000 Thomson’s gazelle, 250,000 zebras leave the Serengeti in Tanzania in May, lured to the northern Maasai Mara in Kenya by rainfall and the promise of sprouting, nutrient-rich grasses. Predators such as lion, hyena and cheetah follow hot on their heels. From January onwards, massive herds of wildebeest gather on the plains of the Serengeti. This 22 000 square kilometer ecosystem of grass- and wood-land
is home to a staggering two million herbivores. Here the wildebeest drop their calves (numbers  estimated at 400 000). Predators like spotted hyena, lion, cheetah, leopard and jackals flourish, feeding on the excessive glut of wildebeest veal. Once the long rains cease in May, the plains dry up quickly and become dry, harsh, and inhospitable. The calves are now strong enough to begin their first journey, and it is then that the long march north begins. From the Simba and Moru Kopjes (hills) in the north-west, the wooded grassland plains of the Serengeti separate into two corridors: to the west lie the Mbalageti and Grumeti Rivers and Lake Victoria, while
the other corridor extends north through woodland and over hills towards the Masai Mara. The rutting season in June is a noisy, dusty affair – with male wildebeest vociferously showing off their genetic superiority. Soon, most of the ‘ladies’ are pregnant. The herds then move on to Lake Victoria – the second-largest lake in the world, which has its own micro-climate and produces sufficient rainfall and pasture along its shores. vultures and Marabou storks line the banks in anticipation as the wildebeest plunge into the river, negotiating both the strong current and crocodiles in their inexhaustible drive for fodder. The wildebeest remain in the Masai Mara for two to three months, sustained by the short rains and pasture. They head south
between October and December, and move along the eastern section of the Serengeti in time to give birth during the life giving long rains of the South.

Day 7: Ngorongoro Conservation Area

After breakfast descend into the crater floor with a picnic lunch for a full day game viewing. The crater supports up to 25,000 large mammals. Grazers dominate: zebra, wildebeest – accounting for almost half the animals – gazelle, buffalo, eland, hartebeest and wart hog. Giraffe, for example, stay away because there is insufficient food at tree level; Topi because they compete directly with wildebeest. An odd feature of the crater elephants is that they are almost exclusively bulls. Breeding herds – comprising large numbers of females and young with a few attendant older males – are probably unable to find sufficient quality food in the crater. Ngorongoro has carnivores in quantity, drawn by the large herds of prey animals. It has the
densest population of large predators, mainly lion – about 100 – and more than 400 spotted hyenas, living in eight clans of up to eighty individuals. Both lions and hyenas will scavenge from each other, depending on weight of numbers and of course, hunger. In the early evening drive back to your lodge. Nestled onto the rim of the Crater, all in stone and wood construction and overgrown with natural vegetation, the 75 rooms of the lodge become almost unseen among the natural surroundings. They are breathtaking views of the crater from all the rooms.
