Accommodation: Fairmont The Norfolk

Day 2 - Amboseli National Park: At the Foot of Kilimanjaro 

Today, drive to Amboseli National Park at the base of soaring, snowcapped Mount Kilimanjaro, which, at 19,341 feet, is the highest freestanding mountain in the world. Set out in search of the region’s spectacular wildlife — lions, leopards, cheetahs, Cape buffalo and hosts of plains game — all roaming freely amid swamps, springs and a shimmering, dried lake bed. This evening, gather with fellow guests for a welcome dinner celebrating the start of an unforgettable safari adventure.

 Day 3 - Amboseli National Park: A Full Day in the Bush 

Spend a full day exploring wildlife-rich Amboseli National Park, renowned for the large herds of elephants that roam its sun-drenched grasslands. View elephants up close, and watch for lions and buffalo as well, from a safari vehicle that seats just six, so that every guest enjoys a window seat. Enjoy a morning on safari before breaking for lunch. This afternoon, take another game drive, capped with a refreshing Scenic Sundowner in the bush.

Accommodation: Tawi Lodge  

Day 4 - Tarangire National Park, Tanzania: Game Viewing 

After crossing the border into Tanzania, stop for lunch in Arusha. Then, board a flight from Arusha to Tarangire National Park and settle into your luxurious accommodations. Set in a secluded area of the park for a more exclusive safari experience, Sanctuary Swala’s large tents are built on raised decks under umbrella acacia trees overlooking a popular watering hole. The layout of this eco-friendly abode is very open, with resident herds of impalas often grazing in camp. Wide panoramas of wooded savanna stretch in every direction in the park, which is nurtured by the permanent Tarangire River and populated by abundant big game, such as lions, elephants and buffalo. Its dusty red landscape also hosts a large bird population. Tonight, dine in camp. 

Accommodation: Sanctuary Swala 


Day 5 - Tarangire National Park: Into the Wild 

Today, embark on morning and afternoon game drives to explore Tarangire National Park. At Tarangire, find a stunning concentration of animals — herds of elephants, impalas and zebras. Look, too, for pythons and the twitching tails of leopards, which hide high above in sausage trees. Once back at Swala, partake in a Chef’s Table experience, including a cooking demonstration of local dishes such as ugali, makande and kachumbari, followed by an opportunity to taste them.

Afterward, head to your restful luxury lodge, set near the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, for lunch.

This afternoon, enjoy one of these Design Your Day activities. -Walk with a Maasai Healer, discovering the uses of over 20 different indigenous plants in the Ngorongoro forest. -Bicycle the Back Roads of a nearby village to get a feel for life as the locals live it. -Enjoy a Traditional High Tea on the veranda overlooking the gardens at Gibb’s Farm; meet the artist-in-residence. -Settle in for a tranquil evening and overnight stay.

Accommodation: Gibb's Farm 

Days 8-10 - Serengeti National Park: On the Endless Plains 

Fly to Serengeti National Park, a vast Tanzanian landscape that during part of the year hosts one of earth’s greatest wildlife spectacles: the annual Great Migration, when millions of herbivores trek across the Serengeti plains in search of water and fresh grass, with hungry predators awaiting them. Over the next two days, your adventure may reveal giraffes, wildebeests, elephants and far more on morning and afternoon game drives.

Accommodation: Four Seasons Safari Lodge Serengeti


Day 11 - Masai Mara Game Reserve, Kenya: Crown Jewel 

Fly to the Masai Mara, the northern extension of the Serengeti. After settling into your accommodation on a private stretch of the Mara River, immerse yourself in the wild during an afternoon game drive. Follow the Mara River to see crocodiles basking in the sun; hippos as they wallow in muddy water; and monkeys, busy sparking mischief overhead. Here, too, you may sight any of more than 400 species of birds, among them eagles who glide effortlessly above the sun-soaked landscape. During your time in the Mara, enjoy the peace of mind that comes with staying at Sanctuary Olonana, recognized as one of the finest safari lodges in all of Africa. Tonight, join fellow guests for a Scenic Sundowner, followed by an elegant dinner. 

Accommodation: Sanctuary Olonana 

Days 12-13 - Masai Mara Game Reserve: Unmatched Wildlife 

Venture forth for two full days of exploring the open savanna, woodlands and tree-fringed rivers of the Masai Mara, where patience is rewarded with unique sightings such as a leopard retrieving a kill from the upper branches of an acacia or elephants protecting their young from opportunistic lions. Game viewing is never dull in the Mara, especially when the dramatic annual Great Migration unfolds. Amid the stunning scenery, watch as Maasai tribesmen traverse the plains or herd goats and cattle. On one day here, visit a Maasai village and meet with an elder to learn about local culture and traditions. Connect with local residents when you visit a village and primary school supported by this operator. Learn firsthand how this operator's foundation partnership with LifeStraw is changing lives by providing locals access to safe, clean drinking water, on an inspiring, exclusive experience.
