Experience The Wonder Of 8 Extraordinary Parks

Daily Private Safari Tour

Samburu, Ol Pejeta, Lake Nakuru, Lake Naivasha, Masai Mara, Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Lake Manyara, Amboseli

From / to Nairobi, Kenya

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.

You will see, feel and learn so much about Africa’s wildlife, land and culture in this very complete 13-day safari adventure. We will explore 8 of Kenya’s and Tanzania’s finest parks, with their stunning diversity of vistas and animals – beautiful lakes, towering cliffs, sweeping grasslands and the multitude of wild game filling these panoramas.

Tanzania will be no less spectacular with its vast Serengeti plains, hosting wildlife in the millions. The great Ngorongoro Crater is the most spectacular volcanic caldera in the world. Its sunrises and sunsets at the crater rim burst with colour. This is the best of Africa and Natural World Safaris is ready to share it with you!

13 days will provide you with plenty of time to absorb the many parks and reserves of our safari, so the pace will be relaxed but thorough. We start off in the north of Kenya at Samburu National Reserve with its rugged, pristine landscape. Most of our game viewing will be along the Ewaso Nyiro River with its life nourishing waters. The game here is varied with notably lion, cheetah and leopard taking top billing along with gerenuk, Grevy’s zebra and reticulated giraffe.

If you wish you can also explore the nearby Shaba and Buffalo Springs Reserves. Then the temperature cools off as we move on to the Mt. Kenya/Laikipia region, arriving at the OlPejeta Conservancy. The Conservancy hosts the largest black rhino sanctuary in East Africa. Don’t miss the Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary also located here. It’s home to orphaned and rescued chimps – the only place in Kenya where you can see them.

We move on to the Rift Valley lake country with a visit to Lake Nakuru National Park. This beautiful park features dramatic escarpments and acacia forest. The lake itself shows off stunning pink flamingos that gather here. At the shore you’ll take in waterbuck, zebra, gazelle and buffalo. The park is also famous for its population of the endangered Rothschild’s giraffe.

There’s wonderful bird watching at nearby Lake Naivasha National Park. We’ll take a water safari here and then a guided walking safari at nearby Crescent Island to view grazing giraffe, zebra, impala and a myriad of bird species. And how about a bicycle safari? We’ll take an afternoon hike at Hell’s Gate National Park and if you wish you can even bicycle past the wildlife along the way.

Then we travel to Kenya’s most famous wildlife habitat – the Maasai Mara Game Reserve – home to the big cats and its significant population of lion. The Mara is a majestic habitat and you’ll be on the lookout for leopard, cheetah plus large herds of elephant and buffalo.

The Mara is also home to the great migration of wildebeest and zebra pouring in from the Serengeti, crossing the Mara River. There, the drama is all about the animals crossing the river and the crocodiles awaiting them. If you wish you can partake in an optional guided nature walk and a visit to a Masai village to meet these herdsmen and learn about their lives.

We now cross the border into Tanzania and Serengeti National Park, the lands from which the great migration begins. The endless grasslands of the Serengeti boast millions of wildlife, especially wildebeest and zebra. But the Big Five are here, as well as gazelle, impala, hartebeest and cheetah.

A not-to-be-missed feature of the Serengeti is the World Heritage Site of Ngorongoro Crater. This is the world’s largest fully intact volcanic caldera. From the crater’s rim you will marvel at the most awe-inspiring sunrises and sunsets. But even more impressive, traveling down to the crater floor you’ll enter a world of intense wildlife. Here you’ll be amongst the highest density of lion and predators in Africa! But not to worry, they’ll keep their distance plus your experienced guide knows his way around this amazing eco-system.

Our next Tanzania park is smaller but contains its own colourful drama. Lake Manyara National Park hosts millions of vibrant flamingos and other bird life. The park also features great herds of elephant and the very unique tree climbing lion.

Now it’s time to cross back into Kenya and pay a visit to our final animal habitat, Amboseli National Park. Seated near the base of Mt. Kilimanjaro, the park is a blend of savannah plains and deep green swampland. You’ll have many opportunities to view elephant here, but there’s also lion, cheetah, hyena and hundreds of bird species. And don’t forget to enjoy the magnificent views of nearby Mt. Kilimanjaro.

Finally, after 13 days, 8 parks and countless animals, it’s time to head back to Nairobi.

All-Inclusive. Your 13-Day Discovery 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, superior comfort or luxury safari lodges or tented camps.

Your Guide. For your entire 13-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.

(Please note currently there are few flamingoes and sometimes none at all. This is because lake Nakuru water level has risen for quite sometime bringinging the salinity level down. Flamingoes feed on saline waters, and have hence migrated to neighboring saline lakes. The rapid increase in water level is as a result of global warming)
