WORLD OF VARIETY – 9 DAY SAFARI ADVENTURE
You’ll See 5 Famous Parks & Reserves
9 DAYS, 8 NIGHTS: LAKE MANYARA NATIONAL PARK – NGORONGORO CRATER – SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK – LAKE VICTORIA – MASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE

Daily Private Safari Tour

Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro, Serengeti, Lake Victoria, Maasai Mara, Nairobi

From Nairobi to Nairobi, Kenya (safari can also start from Arusha)

Starts Nairobi/Ends Nairobi – We’ll pick you up from the airport or your hotel. Travel comfortably in your own pop-top safari minivan. Switch in Tanzania to a private pop-top 4 x 4 Land Cruiser Jeep.

Tree climbing lions. Limitless pink flamingos. A magnificent volcanic crater. The largest lake in Africa. An unending savannah. The great migration. This safari adventure has so much to see and experience, the memories will last you a lifetime.

For 9 days you will explore the finest parks of Tanzania and Kenya, touching vivid landscapes filled with millions of wild animals. The drama of East Africa will greet you each morning with a dazzling sunrise beginning your daily adventure.

Departing Nairobi, we head for the Tanzania border. On the way, you’ll take in views of towering Mt. Kilimanjaro, the largest summit in Africa. This is Masai country and you’ll view farms and plantations on this first leg of your journey.

Our first stop is Lake Manyara National Park – home to the famous tree climbing lions. Just as famous is the sea of fluttering pink flamingos you’ll find here. And you can’t miss the herds of elephants among the many creatures inhabiting this small but beautiful park.

Then it’s a short drive to the largest intact volcanic caldera on the planet – Ngorongoro Crater. Three million years ago a large volcano exploded here. What remained was the crater floor – 610 m deep and 260 square km or 100 square miles in area. This is where we will descend to discover unsurpassed game viewing in a special world unto itself.

Here you’ll discover the highest density of lion and predators in Africa. View rhino, buffalo, hippo, wildebeest and much more wildlife. Later, up at the crater rim get ready to enjoy one of its signature brilliant sunsets.

Traveling on through the Serengeti we explore Olduvai Gorge, earliest site of humankind. Within this steep ravine the ancient rock formations have left clues as to our ancestors’ lives and development. Here you can literally touch history.

And now we arrive at the picture-perfect vastness of Serengeti National Park. The park is so massive it practically enfolds you into its immense rolling plain. Everything about the Serengeti is big – a million plus herd of wildebeest, 250,000 zebras plus lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, buffalo and thousands of smaller game like jackal, hyena and wolf. And if all that weren’t enough, be on the lookout for the olive baboon, velvet monkey and black and white colobus.

In relaxing contrast to the intensity of Serengeti, we next head for scenic Lake Victoria, the largest lake in Africa and the world’s second largest freshwater lake. You can take a breather on Victoria’s historic shores, and should you desire, visit the local market near the small town of Bunda. We’ll also tour a fishing village to learn about the local lifestyle along this great lake.

Crossing back into Kenya you’ll be immersed in the beauty of the great Maasai Mara National Reserve. The Mara is world-famous and the quintessential picture of Africa. This is a deeply rich eco-system blessed with a distinct variety of animal life. Here, you’ll be looking for Africa’s Big Five predators, along with dozens of other species.

Enjoy a picnic lunch by the Mara River where you’ll dine and view the hippos and crocodiles as they dine.

You’ll also have opportunities for several optional activities such as guided nature walks, balloon safari rides and a chance to visit with the Maasai people in their village.

All-Inclusive. Your 9-Day Variety Safari includes park entrance fees, accommodations and meals. Natural World Safaris always offers a wide choice of accommodations. Depending on your budget and style choose from economy, comfort or luxury safari lodges or tented camps.

Your Guide. For your entire 9-day journey you’ll be guided, hosted and looked after by your own experienced driver/guide.

Tanzania travel between parks and game viewing will be in a private pop-top 4 x 4 Land Cruiser Jeep. Optional upgrade in Kenya to 4 x 4 Land Cruiser Jeep.
