Signature Masai Mara and Serengeti

Duration

US$ 11,943

DELUXE | PRIVATE-GUIDED: Discover two of East Africa’s greatest game parks on this premiere safari. Starting in Nairobi, you’ll fly into Masai Mara for several full days of game drives while staying in 5-star accommodations. Then connect into Tanzania and the Serengeti to stay in a luxury game lodge and head on game drives in the company of your own private guide.


This 8-day East African vacation takes you to the two most famous game parks in Africa: the Masai Mara and Serengeti. It features deluxe accommodations in game lodges and private game viewing experiences. 

Your journey begins in Nairobi, the bustling Kenyan capital, where you’ll have the rest of the day at leisure to acclimate to the Kenyan climate and see a few sites if you wish. You can head to the Karen Blixen Museum to learn about the author of Out of Africa or visit the Giraffe Centre to share the space with friendly, recuperating giraffes.

From Nairobi, fly into Masai Mara, located in the Great Rift Valley and one of the most biodiverse parks on the continent. Staying at the 5-star Mara Bushtops, which offers intimacy and exceptional accommodations mere minutes from the main gate of the park, you’ll spend two full days on morning and afternoon game drives in the park. Head out each morning at dawn to spot cheetahs in the midst of their morning hunt, elephants bathing in waterholes, or herds of wildebeest and zebra migrating across the plains, following the rains. Return to the lodge for lunch and a rest before heading back out in the afternoon in search of predators stalking prey in the fading light of day or herd animals settling in for the night. You can even book an optional hot air balloon safari one morning. Start your day with views high above the plains where you can see every herd of buffalo or pride of lions. Cap off the experience with a champagne bush breakfast back on the ground. 

After several days in the Masai Mara, you’ll head over the border into Tanzania and fly into the Serengeti, arguably the most famous safari game park in the world. Staying at Serengeti Bushtops, a 5-star property in the park’s northwest and located along the migration routes of wildebeest and zebra, you’ll have another two full days in the Serengeti to head on morning and afternoon game drives. The Serengeti has some of the largest numbers of mammals in all of Africa. You’ll have a good chance to see the Big Five, as well as gazelles, zebras, cheetahs, and dozens of species of birds. Considering the placement of the lodge, you’re also likely to spot migrating herds of wildebeest and zebra from the property between June and November. 

At the end of your stay, connect to Arusha to continue to your next destination or return home.
