SAMPLE ITINERARY

Day 1: Nairobi > Masai Mara Fly from Nairobi to the Masai Mara - Kenya's most renowned game park and legendary for great sightings of wildlife year-round.

Day 2: Masai Mara Game Reserve Morning and afternoon game drives. Enjoy views of the Mara from the pool and lounge area at camp. The migratory wildebeest, zebra, kongoni and topi join abundant elephant, hippo, buffalo, giraffe, lion and cheetah. Leopard and serval are frequently encountered, while endangered black rhino can be found in the dense bush thickets.

Day 3: Masai Mara > Serengeti National Park Fly to the Serengeti, undoubtedly one of the world's most celebrated wilderness areas. Spend three nights at AndBeyond Grumeti Serengeti Tented Camp, or AndBeyond Kleins Camp, or AndBeyond Serengeti Under Canvas.

Days 4 & 5: Northern Serengeti Embark from your chosen camp for morning and afternoon game drives, with sundowners on the evening drive. Each camp is positioned perfectly during certain months of the year for the best chances to witness the Great Migration. Spend the days in search of large herds of wildebeest, zebra and antelope and the predators that follow. It is a spectacle!

With no fences or man-made barriers, huge numbers of wildlife move freely throughout this area, constantly recreating an ageless natural cycle. The magnificent Serengeti is famed for its vast tree-less grasslands, allowing for excellent wildlife sightings.

Day 6: Serengeti > Ngorongoro Crater Fly to Manyara and spend two nights near the Crater at the iconic AndBeyond Ngorongoro Crater Lodge, perched on the rim of the crater with magnificent views. Steeped in romance, each stilted, handcrafted mud and thatch suite is adorned with graceful antiques. Ensuite bathrooms, with a centrepiece of fresh roses, feature huge showers and chandelier-lit bathtubs, while floor-to-ceiling windows ensure breathtaking views from everywhere.

Day 7: Ngorongoro Crater Spend the day in the Ngorongoro Crater - this ancient volcano shelters more than 30,000 protected animals.

Day 8: Ngorongoro Crater > Manyara > Kilimanjaro or Zanzibar Transfer to the Manyara Airport for your flight to Kilimanjaro or Zanzibar. Connect to your onward international flights.

Optional Zanzibar Extension: Day 8: Ngorongoro > Zanzibar Fly from Manyara to Zanzibar Island via Arusha. You will quite possibly get astounding views of Kilimanjaro as you fly by! Transfer and spend three nights relaxing at your chosen hotel or resort.

Days 9 & 10: Zanzibar Days at leisure. Staying at a Zanzibarian beach resort gives you flexibility to do as you like - whether that be lots of activity - scuba diving, snorkelling, fishing and sailing - or do as little as you please. The markets and old Stone Town are a must during your stay and will definitely indulge your "culture-vulture"!

Day 11: Zanzibar Transfer to the airport for your onward flights.
