HIGHLIGHTS
  • Safari, safari, safari – what East African adventure would be complete without one? Well, this trip has five (with the option to book one more) in two different areas. Which brings us to…
  • The animals! Go in search of hippos, lions, leopards, giraffes and more during game drives in the Serengeti and Masai Mara with your experienced local leaders.
  • Spend a night hanging with the redclad Maasai folk in Loita Hills. A local elder will explain what the tribe is all about and show you around their house.
  • Crossing the Masai Mara in a purposebuilt truck is just one of those classic East Africa experiences – vast plains spotted with thorn trees and herds of animals.
Starting in Nairobi and ending in Arusha, the tour Essential East Africa is a guided adventure tour that takes 10 days. You will be traveling through Mto Wa Mbu, Arusha, Masai Mara National Reserve and 5 other destinations in Kenya and Tanzania.

With multiple 4WD safari drives in the Masai Mara and Serengeti National Parks, stops at remote market towns, spend a night in a Maasai village and another night by the largest tropical lake in the world, this tour is like a crash course in what East Africa is all about.

“I had an amazing time. Highlights were Kruger national park and the Delta and the nighlty camp fires under the stars. It was a well planned trip mainly due to our tour leader Thabang, Lizzie our cook and Vincent our driver. There were long drives as per the itinerary but it was the only way to see the beautiful southern africa in a timely manner. Thank you for a great trip!”
