This itinerary is jam packed with fantastic destinations and plenty of game viewing, as well as cultural interaction. It is truly the classic Kenya and Tanzania combo itinerary. Travel is by road, with the Kenya - Tanzania border crossing at Namanga.  Accommodation is in 5-star Serena lodges.

8 national parks or reserves are visited: Masai Mara, Lake Nakuru National Park, Lake Naivasha National Park, Amboseli National Park, Lake Manyara National Park, Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, Tarangire National Park.

Whilst the itinerary starts in Nairobi, it ends in either Arusha or Nairobi - your choice.  A farewell dinner in Nairobi on the last night at a local restaurant is a great way to bid farewell to new friends, and to East Africa. You’ll make plans to see both again, no doubt.

Maximum number of travelers in a vehicle is 7 (recommended max - 6 travelers).
This safari is also operated on a small group basis for those who like to meet new people, please ask your Destination Specialist for pricing.
For those who wish to see Mountain gorillas and complete their East African explorations, an add-on to Rwanda or Uganda is recommended.
