Our camp for the next two nights is adjacent to the renowned Masai Mara National Park. Enjoy a hot shower with water heated on a traditional donkey boiler.

Early this morning we enter the park to enjoy a full day of extensive game driving. The Masai Mara is well known for its large herds and ever present predators, we will follow the seasonal migrations. Lunch today will be a picnic on the banks of the Mara river, known for its huge crocodile and hippo population. Return to camp for the night.

Here we will spend time relaxing, exploring the markets, and trading with the local fishermen. Dinner tonight will be own expense at a local restaurant. Camp the night at the waters edge.


Day 7: Serengeti Camping Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Today we enter what is arguably the worlds most acclaimed wildlife sanctuary, the Serengeti National Park. This park, with its huge concentrations of plains game, numerous predators and birdlife all resident on the seemingly endless grass and acacia covered plains, epitomizes Africa’s game parks. The day is spent doing game drives in this amazing national park.


Day 8: Serengeti Ngorongoro Camping Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

We rise early for a game drive after which we leave the Serengeti and enter the Ngorongoro conservation area. Here you will get a chance to witness the Masai tribal people herding their cattle amongst the wildlife, still living their customary lifestyle as they have for centuries. Tonight we will camp at the renowned Simba Camp on the edge of the magnificent Ngorongoro crater. The views from the camp are spectacular.


Day 9: Ngorongoro - Masai Camping Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

At first light we make the daring descent into the crater in our smaller 4x4 safari vehicles and here we explore this marvel of nature with its sheer walls and fertile plains. With the possibility to view almost all of Africa’s animal species, including the rare black rhino, at close range in open plains – this has to be the finest game viewing available.
