Day 1 Welcome to Kenya 6 hours Luxury Tented Camp

Upon arrival at Kenya's Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, a vehicle waits to transfer you to Wilson Airport, where you board a scheduled flight to the Masai Mara National Reserve. The reserve’s vast plains are dotted with clusters of trees giving rise to the Masai name ‘Maa’, which means spotted.

Affectionately known as the Mara, this reserve protects the northern-most section of the Mara-Serengeti ecosystem, a magnificent 25,000 square kilometres of natural migration corridor. Your home for two nights is the opulent Bateleur Camp. Bateleur Camp is located where the iconic final scene of Out of Africa was filmed, set within the shade of an indigenous forest overlooking the grasslands. During the heat of the day, the pool offers a refreshing escape complete with glorious poolside loungers and the subtly attentive service of your personal butler. Your tented suite is a romantic blend of canvas and polished hardwood, with a generous bathroom and magnificent views from a private deck.

• Main destination: Masai Mara National Reserve
• Accommodation: Bateleur Camp Luxury tented camp bordering Masai Mara NR without fences
• Meals & drinks: Dinner (Breakfast & lunch not included). All drinks (Premium wines & liquors might be excluded)

Day 2 The Glamorous Mara 10 hours Luxury Tented Camp

Bateleur Camp is located in a private concession in the Western Mara. The plains are best explored by vehicle on early morning and late afternoon game drives when wildlife is most active. Guided nature walks provide a more intimate insight into the natural environment and spotlit night drives add a thrilling sense of adventure to the possible sighting of nocturnal species.

One of the camp’s delightful traditions is stopping at a scenic spot for refreshing sundowners during the late afternoon drive. The Mara has a richly varied resident population of wildlife, including all the Big 5 along with rarer species like cheetah, bat-eared foxes and Roan antelope. The Great Migration occurs when the vast herds of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle move through the ecosystem following the rains and fresh grazing. More than 470 bird species have been recorded here, including 60 raptors. Among the resident species that top the must-see list are vultures, marabou storks, and African pygmy falcons.

Day 3 Tanzania awaits 9 hours Luxury Tree Lodge

After an early morning game drive and a hearty breakfast, you return to Wilson Airport for a scheduled flight to Kilimanjaro International Airport in Tanzania. One more air transfer delivers you to Lake Manyara, the area Hemingway described as, ‘the loveliest I had seen in Africa’.

Your home for two nights is the enchanting Lake Manyara Tree Lodge. Elegant and comfortable, the lodge’s delightful tree houses are cradled in the boughs of an ancient mahogany forest. For a highly recommended treat – especially on the day you arrive - book a deeply relaxing spa massage.

• Main destination: Lake Manyara National Park
• Accommodation: Lake Manyara Tree Lodge Luxury lodge located inside Lake Manyara NP
• Meals & drinks: All meals included. All drinks (Premium wines & liquors might be excluded)

Day 4 Charming Lake Manyara 10 hours Luxury Tree Lodge

Manyara’s lush forests are alive with skipping blue monkeys and the joyous honking of hornbills. Where the forest gives way to plains, the eye is drawn past clouds of flamingo on the lakeshore, up to a line of pale purple volcanic. Inland from the floodplains lies a narrow belt of acacia woodland, home to tree-climbing lions, Africa’s graceful giants, elephants, and the diminutive Kirk’s dik-dik.

Clans of banded mongoose add a comical touch to the panorama. Manyara is a birder’s delight thanks to the combination of wetlands, woodlands and hot springs. Birds flourish here with over 400 recorded species in the area. While flamingos put on the most ostentatious show, Manyara is a haven for many large, migratory water birds, including pelicans and storks. The Lodge offers daily game viewing expeditions on foot, safari vehicle or mountain bikes, all led by expert guides, as well as night drives that offer fascinating insights into the rich nocturnal life of the Park.

Day 5 Journey to the Crater [Game Drive] 9 hours Luxury Crater Lodge

After an early game drive and delicious breakfast, you will be transferred by road from Lake Manyara to the dramatic and breathtaking Ngorongoro Crater. This is a place of wonders – from its miraculous terrain to the abundant fauna and flora it supports, from its status as a World Heritage Site to the harmonious coexistence of its people and wildlife. Ngorongoro Crater Lodge is architecturally spectacular.

Perched on the edge of the crater, every suite offers impressive views. Glamorous opulence rules this Lodge, from the chandelier-lit bathrooms to the personal butler service and fine dining.

Day 6 Ngorongoro Crater: A 'true original' 10 hours Luxury Crater Lodge

The Crater is the world’s largest intact, un-flooded caldera, formed by a massive volcanic eruption. Your route from the lodge descends over the lush rainforests of the rim, 610m down to the grasslands of the crater floor, an area of about 260 square kilometres. This haven provides a year-round home to wildebeest, zebra, eland and gazelle, along with Africa’s densest population of lion. The rainforests shelter elephant, mountain buck, buffalo, hyena, wild dog, leopard and cheetah.

Spend your day game viewing and exploring the crater floor, stopping to picnic on the grasslands amidst the grazing herds. Return to the Lodge for sundowners on the crater’s rim and a sumptuous feast in the domed dining area.

Its climate, vegetation and fauna have remained mostly unchanged over the past million years. The natural instinct that drives the annual Great Migration of more than a million wildebeest, gazelle and zebra is so powerful that neither drought nor crocodile-infested rivers can halt it.

“Everything went well with me and my family. We were here few weeks ago on our Vacation and we decided to go on safari. We had a lot choices but we eventually fell over this safari since we were on holiday and we planned it for quite sometime. It turned out to be a fine safari with lots of good memories and we enjoyed every part of it.
Our biggest surprise was how beautiful the lodges were. I think these guys are good at choosing where to take you. We loved it”

Would I recommend this safari? Well, Yes. Go for it if you love luxury.”
