 Itinerary
Day 1  Depart the USA
Depart the USA on your overnight flight to Nairobi, the capital and largest city of Kenya.
Day 2  Nairobi, Kenya
JAMBO - KARIBU!! (Welcome!) Upon arrival at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, you will be met by a Mayflower Cruises & Tours representative who will assist with your transfer to the hotel, located in the heart of the central business district, for overnight accommodations.
Day 3  Nairobi to Amboseli National Park
After breakfast, depart for the drive to Amboseli National Park. Check in to the lodge and enjoy time for lunch. This afternoon, the safari adventure begins with the first game-viewing drive to Amboseli National Park. You’ll have the opportunity to see buffalo, cheetah, giraffe, baboon, gazelle, hippo and wildebeest among many other inhabitants of this national park. With over 400 species of birds, flora and fauna, it’s also a bird-lover’s paradise. This evening, enjoy dinner at the lodge. Meals: B, L, D
Day 4  Amboseli National Park
Morning and afternoon game-viewing drives are in store for today. Amboseli National Park offers some of the most breathtaking views in Africa and is one of the best places for a photogenic view of Mount Kilimanjaro (weather permitting). Famous for its large herds of giant elephants, the park provides the classic Hollywood image of Africa. Meals: B, L, D
Day 5  Amboseli National Park to Tarangire National Park
Enjoy an early morning breakfast before departing via the Namanga border to Tarangire National Park where you check in to the lodge and enjoy a late lunch. An exciting game-viewing drive takes place this afternoon. Herds of elephants scratch the dry bed of the Tarangire River searching for underground streams, while migratory wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, impala, gazelle, hartebeest and eland crowd the shrinking lagoons. It's the greatest concentration of wildlife outside the Serengeti ecosystem - a smorgasbord for predators – and the one place in Tanzania where dry-country antelope, such as the stately fringe-eared oryx and peculiar longnecked gerenuk, are regularly observed. Meals: B, L, D
Day 6  Tarangire National Park to Ngorongoro Conservation Area
After breakfast, depart for the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Lunch will be provided after checking in to the lodge on the rim of Ngorongoro Crater, which has the largest unbroken caldera in the world and has been described as one of the great natural wonders of the world. Almost every species of African plains mammal lives in the crater, including the endangered black rhino. This afternoon, relax and enjoy the breathtaking views from the lodge before tonight’s dinner. Meals: B, L, D
Day 7  Ngorongoro Conservation Area
Today’s adventure is a descent into the crater in the game-drive vehicles, for a full day of game viewing. A photogenic paradise, an abundance of resident wildlife freely roams the plains of the crater floor while hundreds of bird species refresh in the small lakes. Unmatched for its natural variety and breathtaking beauty, there are few places on earth where such a tremendous diversity of landscape exists in an area of this size. The crater is also of great archaeological importance with the remains of some of mankind’s earliest ancestors discovered in the area. Return to your lodge in the late afternoon with time to relax before dinner. Meals: B, L, D
Day 8  Ngorongoro Conservation Area to Serengeti National Park
After breakfast, depart for Serengeti National Park with a stop at Olduvai Gorge en-route. As one of the most important prehistoric sites in the world, a resident guide will provide an interpretation of the gorge. Lunch will be provided after checking in to the lodge. This afternoon, participate in a game-viewing drive in the worldfamous Serengeti National Park. Covering 5700 square miles, it is Tanzania’s oldest park and one of the world’s last great wildlife refuges. The Serengeti ecosystem supports the greatest remaining concentration of plains game in Africa, including more than 2,500 lions and over one million wildebeests. After the game-viewing drive, return to your Serengeti lodge for dinner. Meals: B, L, D
Day 9  Serengeti National Park
After breakfast, depart with picnic lunch boxes for a full day of game-viewing drives on the Serengeti plains. ‘Serengeti’ is derived from a word meaning ‘the place where the land runs on forever,’ and the vast national park remains true to its name. Aside from being spoiled by the variety of wildlife and bird species of the Serengeti, its landscape is stunningly beautiful, especially in the early morning and late evening light. Elephant, buffalo, lion, rhino, zebra, giraffe and others may be spotted during your Serengeti adventure. Meals: B, L, D
Day 10  Serengeti National Park to Masai Mara Game Reserve
It’s time to leave Tanzania and travel to Kenya via the Sirari/Isebania border where your driver/guides will assist with the immigration procedures. During the drive to the Masai Mara Game Reserve, a picnic lunch will take place. With rolling plains and grasslands stretching as far as the eye can see, the Masai Mara is home to the black-maned lion, Savannah (African) elephant, Cape buffalo, wildebeests, cheetah, hyena, rhino, topi, Burchelle’s zebra and Masai giraffe. Arrive at the intimate Tipilikwani Camp in the evening, check-in to your accommodations and enjoy dinner. Meals: B, L, D
Day 11  Masai Mara Game Reserve
If you choose, start the day with an optional sunrise hot-air balloon ride* (weather permitting). After breakfast, depart on a full-day adventure on the Masai Mara Game Reserve as you keep a lookout for the “big five:” lion, Savannah elephant, Cape buffalo, leopard and the black rhino. In the afternoon, visit a traditional Maasai manyatta (village) and experience the culture of this world-famous community where the Maasai still live as they have for centuries. Interact with these nomadic people and experience their way of life. Return to the camp for dinner and overnight. Meals: B, L, D
