Drive to Amboseli National Park, known for its thriving big game population. From a distance, take in views of the highest mountain in Africa, the snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro, with its impressive Uhuru Peak soaring to 19,341 feet. Arrive at your luxury lodge set beneath acacia trees in the shadow of Kilimanjaro. After lunch, explore the acacia woodland, freshwater swamps, scrub brush and open plains in search of wildlife.

Day Five

Ngorongoro Crater | Spot the Tree-Climbing Lions

Along a narrow belt of acacia woodland, you may even spot the region’s storied tree-climbing lions, who ascend branches for a cool breeze. After a farm-fresh lunch, travel to the Ngorongoro Crater, ascending its outer wall through dense vegetation. Ngorongoro is the largest unbroken ancient caldera in the world, and a likely place to view lions, elephants, hyenas and gazelles. This afternoon, participate in a Chef’s Table demonstration in the hotel kitchen, at which you prepare and sample local dishes.

Following a picnic lunch, visit a Maasai village to gain a better understanding of the nomadic cattle-herders’ daily life and culture.

Pass through a spectacular mix of savanna grassland and volcanic hills, before dropping steeply downward into the gorge. Visit the small museum, take in views from the lookout point and examine the excavations, which revealed 3.7-million-year-old footprints and the skull of a 1.8-million-year-old man. Continue to your lodge, which is framed by commanding views of this land of lions, leopards, hyenas, cheetahs, giraffes and topi. The park also serves as a setting for the Great Migration when it passes through each year. Enjoy your rondavel room with private balcony and unique decor styled to showcase cultural heritage and traditional art.
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Accommodation: Serengeti Serena Safari Lodge

 

Day Eight

Serengeti National Park | Iconic Safari Quarry

Spend your day in true safari country, searching for the “Big Five” (lions, leopards, Cape buffalo, elephants and rhinos), along with giraffes, gazelles and zebras.

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Accommodation: Serengeti Serena Safari Lodge

 

Day Nine

Masai Mara Game Reserve | Wildlife Revealed

Fly to the vast Masai Mara Game Reserve, Kenya’s finest wildlife spectacle.

The Mara lies within the territory of the Maasai, who help administer the park and protect it from poachers.

Days Ten-Eleven

Masai Mara Game Reserve | Days of Discovery

Spend the next two days exploring a region bestowed with over 500 square miles of savannas, woodlands and tree-fringed rivers. Watch as the resident wildlife amble out with wide, purposeful  eyes as the sun begins to set. You may observe crocodiles as they bask in the sun; see ever-alert hippos wallow in muddy, cooling water; and catch the antics of mischievous monkeys overhead. Watch, too, as massive African elephants rustle along the forest edge and lanky, graceful giraffes snatch leaves from branches high above. During one of your mornings in the Mara, you may choose to go on a hot air balloon ride, for an additional cost, floating peacefully above the game-dotted plains.

One evening, enjoy a Scenic Sundowner experience, sipping traditional cocktails while marveling at the incredible atmosphere just before dusk. You may also choose to visit with students at a local school (when in session), for a glimpse of Africa’s bright future. On your final evening, attend a memorable farewell dinner, during which you may reflect on your wildlife adventure, swap stories of animal sightings and toast your unforgettable stay with fellow guests.
