African Safaris and Travel - Our safaris reflect every travelers style, time frame and budget!
Alternative camps and lodges used can be
substituted with others, which may be inside the national
Parks, or with those located in private concession areas
outside of National Parks. Naturally, by doing so the costs
are subject to change, but one benefit is that by doing so,
one can also do activities which are normally not available
within the National Parks, e.g. night game drives and game
walks. A very popular safari for honeymooners and families
with children alike!
On your arrival in Nairobi, you will be met by a company
representative, and transferred to the Norfolk Hotel.
Overnight on a bed and breakfast basis.

you will be transferred to Nairobi Wilson Airport for your

Morning and afternoon game drives. All meals and

The Reserve is very scenic, with craggy hills and
everywhere Doum palms following the water courses. Some
unusual animal species can be found here; the reticulated
giraffe, Oryx, Lesser Kudu, Grevy's zebra, and the Gerenuk,
known as the "giraffe gazelle". Most of the game viewing takes place around the forests

The Masai Mara Reserve is one of Africa's best known
wildlife areas, and is part of the Serengeti ecosystem.
A land of undulating hills and rolling grasslands it
supports a large animal population. Even a casual visitor is
treated to the sight of lions in prides sometimes numbering
more than thirty beasts with a handsome black-maned male in
dominance; a cheetah at great speed runs down its prey; a
Leopard in the lower branches with its kill. Another
attraction of staying in Little Governor's is that it is
situated away from most other camps and lodges, and game
drives tend to avoid other parts of the reserve which can,
at times, be relatively crowded. Dinner and overnight at
Little Governors Camp or Il Moran* (* Surcharges may apply).
Morning and afternoon game drives. In the Mara river
there are crocodiles sunning themselves on the banks , and
hippos playing in the water.
Elephant, Cape buffalo, giraffe, Topi, gazelle are all in
abundance, and during the months of July to September the
great migration of wildebeest and zebras spill over from the
Serengeti. The sight of these beasts legging it across the Mara
River, avoiding both the crocodiles in the river, and the
predators harassing them from behind is amazing, and the
topic of some of the most spectacular photography ever seen.

Moran* (* Surcharges may apply).

The baobab studded landscape also plays host to a vast
variety of resident and migratory bird life. Looking out

"It is impossible to give a fair description of the size
and beauty of the Crater, for there is nothing with which
one can compare it. It is one of the Wonders of the World."
This is how the Crater is described by Bernard Grzimek in
his classic "Serengeti Shall Not Die".
The area is given over to Wildlife Conservation and
comprises 8300 square kilometers of which the Crater is 260
square kilometers, and consists of grasslands, swamps,
forests, rivers, and even an arid area of shifting dunes.
The Crater supports a year round resident population of
varied wildlife , and as the game is concentrated into a
relatively small area you are likely to see Lion, Elephant,
Hyaena, Jackal, Cheetah, the very rare Black Rhino, primates
and many more. The area is also home to the proud and
colorful Masai tribe. Dinner and overnight at Ngorongoro

Morning and afternoon game drives. The Serengeti National
Park is one of the most popular and spectacular game areas
in East Africa, covering an area of 14,765 square
kilometers, teaming with game. A particular feature of the
Serengeti is the annual migration of the wildebeest and
zebra herds. Each year, after the traditional "short" rains
in November the migration starts when the herds amass in
their thousands on the plains below the Ngorongoro
During February they move north and west following the
rains and the new grasslands, and they start to move into
the Masai Mara in July. In October they move back to
Tanzania. This annual phenomenon involves more than 1.5
million animals, including the lion and other predators who
follow the herds for easy pickings. The whole process
affects the lives of thousands of other species who rely on
the passage of the migration for their survival, even the
insects, not to mention the trees and plants which rely on
the droppings for their fertilization. All meals and
overnight at Serengeti Serena Lodge.
Breakfast at the lodge. Morning transfer to the airstrip
