On day two of the 7 Days Kenya and Tanzania safari, you will wake up early for our African breakfast and get ready for the long a wited day in Masai Mara national reserve. After an early breakfast, you will go for a morning game drive, and this is the most wonderful game drive when every animal is very active, depending on the month of the safari the wildebeest flock the reserve from late July to September after the wildebeest migration occurs. Other games to view include large pride of lions, zebras, leopards, Elephants, giraffes and many more. After this rewarding game viewing, we will drive back to the lodge for resting and lunch.
After lunch, we go for evening game drive in search of more animals especially pointing at what we might have missed during the previous dates. You will go for another game drive following different tracks, which will give you an opportunity to see even more animals. Return to your lodge for dinner and overnight stay at Ol-Moran Camp
Day 3: Transfer from Masai Mara to Serengeti National Park
You will have a very early breakfast and checkout from the lodge as early as possible around 6 am. We drive out of the reserve through the Olololo gate in the western part of the reserve to the boarder of Isebania. We get clearance from the border customs office then after we proceed to Serengeti National Park. Have an enroute game drive to our lodge where we have dinner and overnight. Dinner and overnight at Osupuko Camp
Day 4: Full day at the Serengeti National Park
After your early breakfast on day 4 of the 7 Days Kenya and Tanzania safari, we shall go for a full day game drive with our lunch boxes along the Seronera area. Enjoy the big game around Seronera River, some of the wildlife to look out for in this section include the Lions, Thomson gazelles, topi, ostriches and cheetahs.
After your game drive, you will proceed to the Visitor Centre where we have our lunch break open our lunch boxes. The Tourist Information Centre offers some interesting wildlife displays as well as a gift shop selling information leaflets and maps of the area. The shop also has a refreshment area, and we shall, therefore, have our lunch from there.
In the evening go for a game drive to the Kopjes the weathered granite outcrops, scattered around the plains, most of which are miniature ecosystems, providing shade and drinking water in pools left in the rock after the rains. The Kopjes are good hunting grounds for lions especially in dry seasons when most wildlife comes to drink up. Look for other animals which we might have missed during the morning game drive. Return for dinner and overnight stay at Osupuko Camp
Day 5: Serengeti Plains – Ngorongoro crater
After breakfast at the lodge do we depart to Ngorongoro Conservation area. We have our last game drive at the endless plains of Serengeti. We shall enjoy more views of wildlife until we reach the exit gate of Ngorongoro. We have more animal viewing en route for more and large groups of Giraffes, wildebeest, zebras and many more.
We shall arrive at Ngorongoro crater entry point at lunch at the crater entrance and after lunch, we will descend over 600 meters into the crater to view wildlife for a half day’s safari tour. Supported by year-round water supply and fodder, the Ngorongoro National Park supports a vast variety of animals, which include herds of wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, eland, warthog, hippo, and giant African elephants. Another big draw card to this picturesque national park is its dense population of predators, which include lions, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs, and the ever-elusive leopard, which sometimes requires a trained eye to spot. We will visit Lake Magadi, a large but shallow alkaline lake in the southwestern corner, which is one of the main features of the crater. A large number of flamingos, hippos and other water birds can usually have been seen here.
Dinner and overnight at Hhando Coffee Lodge
