11-Day Kenya & Tanzania Safari Itinerary

Day 1: Nairobi to Lake Nakuru National Park

Early morning pick up in Nairobi and then drive to Lake Nakuru National Park, across the equator, where lies the Rift Valley’s most famous lake. Known all over the world for its flamingoes, it’s alkaline and is recognized as being one of the natural wonders of the world. Lake Nakuru is now a rhino sanctuary, harboring a population of over 40 black and over 60 white rhinos, but the flamingos, of course, have always been the main attraction. At times there may be almost 2 million flamingos in residence, forming a stunningly beautiful deep pink band around the edge of the lakeshore.

  • Overnight at The Cliff
  • Meal Plan: Lunch, Dinner

Day 2: Lake Nakuru to Masai Mara Game Reserve

An early morning drive to Masai Mara National Reserve. It holds on as one of the few places left on earth where wildlife still lives comparatively undisturbed, in the numbers that once roamed the plains and forests of Africa. As the northern tip of the vast Serengeti ecosystem, the Mara hosts the spectacular seasonal migration of many thousands of Wildebeest, Zebras, and attendant predators. Arrived in time for lunch followed by an afternoon game drive.

  • Overnight at Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp
  • Meal Plan: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 3: Masai Mara Game Reserve

You’ll have an amazing full day in the Masai Mara with a customizable schedule and no limits on how much ground you can cover. After breakfast, we’ll embark on an epic game drive with a delicious packed lunch provided. You won’t want to miss out on seeing the Big Five in this incredible reserve. Plus, if you’re a bird lover, then we’ve got something special for you – almost 500 species of birds have been recorded here.

  • Overnight at Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp
  • Meal Plan: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 4: Masai Mara to Serengeti National Park

Wake up and get ready for an exhilarating day in the wild! We’ll start with a morning game drive through Masai Mara, then after completing all the necessary formalities at the border, we’ll be making our way to Tanzania’s iconic Serengeti National Park. It may be a long day of driving, but you never know what incredible sights await us on the journey there and back.

  • Overnight at Four Seasons Safari Lodge
  • Meal Plan: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 5 & 6: Serengeti National Park

The famous Serengeti National Park is home to the great migration. This 6,900 sq mile (18,000 sq km) park is inhabited by more than 2 million large animals. These include more than a million wildebeest, hundreds of thousands of plains zebras, Thomson’s gazelles, and large predators including lions, cheetahs, and hyenas. Many smaller animals like rock hyrax or monkeys also inhabit the area along with nearly 500 species of birds. On the second day, after breakfast, you’ll enjoy a full day in Serengeti National Park with morning and afternoon game drives.

  • Overnight at Four Seasons Safari Lodge
  • Meal Plan: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 7: Serengeti to Ngorongoro Conservation Area

Wake up very early for an early morning game drive. In the afternoon, transfer to the Ngorongoro conservation area. The crater has the greatest concentration of wildlife on the planet. It contains a river, several swamps, a soda lake that, from the top, looks like steam, full of flamingoes, a forest, and open plains. The large bull elephants that reside here have extremely large tusks, due to the rich mineral content of the volcanic soil and its grasses.

  • Overnight at Ngorongoro Crater Lodge
  • Meal Plan: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 8: Ngorongoro to Lake Manyara National Park

We will start the day very early and descend into the crater floor for an incredible morning of wildlife in one of the most stunning places on Earth. After the game drive, there will be time for a picnic lunch near the beautiful Hippo Lake. After lunch, we will have time for a short game drive and then ascend the crater and exit the Ngorongoro Conservation Area towards Lake Manyara. Here, the game drives are done along the shore of the lake, providing incredible views of giraffes and buffalos in the foreground with the lake, flamingos, and flat plains on the horizon. You’ll have great photo opportunities and you can also do a walking and night safari.

  • Overnight at Lake Manyara Tree Lodge
  • Meal Plan: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 9: Lake Manyara to Amboseli National Park

Leave Lake Manyara and head to Amboseli. Amboseli National Park is situated south of Nairobi. Most of the park consists of a dry, ancient lake bed and fragile grassland with patches of acacia woodland, while in the southern area, there are several small rocky volcanic hills. Dinner and overnight at the selected tented camp or lodge.

  • Overnight at Tortilis Camp
  • Meal Plan: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 10: Amboseli National Park

Early rise for good views of Mount Kilimanjaro before clouds build up over the summit. We can choose to have a full-day game drive or morning and afternoon game drives. Despite its changing habitat, Amboseli National Park is possibly the best wildlife area in the whole of Africa to experience elephants at close range. Left unharassed by poachers, elephants feeding and bathing in the swamps must form the highlights of any safari.

  • Overnight at Tortilis Camp
  • Meal Plan: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 11: Amboseli to Nairobi

You’ll have a morning game drive in Amboseli. An optional visit to a Maasai village can also be planned. The visit reveals the singing and dancing that are part of their daily lives and sacred rituals. A glimpse into their homes and social structure is a poignant experience. Early in the afternoon, you’ll drive to Nairobi arriving at about 5 pm. You’ll then be transferred to your hotel or the airport.
