10 days Kenya and Tanzania safari – Where to visit
Masai Mara Game Reserve – The Mara Mara National Reserve (often referred to as Masai Mara Game Reserve)is arguably the most famous wildlife area in Africa due to the wildebeests migration that happens every year between July and October as herds of wildebeests and zebras as well as gazelles cross the crocodile infested waters of Mara River in a bid enter Masai Mara from the Serengeti in Tanzania, in search for greener pastures and water points.
Apart from the wildebeests the Masai Mara is a well-known destination for its big cat population and for that reason a famous shooting site for many wildlife documentaries in the past including the ‘Big Cat Diary’.
Serengeti National Park – The Serengeti National Park’s name is derived from the word ‘Siringit’ which is a Maa word (a language of the Masai tribe) that means ‘endless plains’. This is the best national park in Tanzania and the whole of Africa having been voted several times. You expect to See the wildebeests migration herds , the big five as well as a lot of game and birdlife in the Serengeti National Park.
Ngorongoro Crater – This is one of the UNESCO world heritage sites in Tanzania and the world largest unbroken caldera. The small are a(around 21 Km in diameter) is like a natural zoo full of wildlife and birds living in their natural settings. Apart from many small and large game, you can spot the big five in Ngorongoro Crater even in one day.
Amboseli National Park – Think of the large herds of elephants with views of the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro (the highest mountain in Africa) at the backdrop, then that is Amboseli National Park. This small park in southern Kenya is home to a lot of wildlife and birds including the colorful flamingos. You get the best views of Mount Kilimanjaro while doing game drives in this park and a great chance to get that postcard photo you have been dreaming of.
This tour starts and ends at Nairobi, Kenya and therefore international flights should be arranged as a return flight to Nairobi. Jomo Kenyatta International Airport is a major hub in Africa, and therefore the airport has many flight options to choose from and you can arrive early in the morning and start the safari tour straightaway to the Masai mara. Alternatively we can arrange a room and overnight stay at Nairobi before the safari starts on the next day in case you arrive late or arrive early but want to relax and recuperate from jet lag.
