Day 5

Arrive at the Masai Mara

After breakfast you'll be met and transferred from Porini Rhino back to Nanyuki where you'll catch your flight to the world-famous Masai Mara National Reserve. Once here, you will be transferred to Porini Lion Camp in time for lunch and afternoon tea. Go on a late afternoon nature walk or game drive followed by a sundowner drink and spotlit night drive before returning to Porini Lion Camp for dinner.

Day 6

Explore the Mara's plains

Today is dedicated solely to exploring the rolling savannahs of the Masai Mara National Reserve on a full-day game drive. Find a scenic spot for a delicious picnic lunch and return to camp in the late afternoon to spend one last night at Porini Lion Camp.

Day 7

Settle in at elegant Oliver's Camp

Leave the Mara behind today as you enjoy a flight and road transfer to Oliver's Camp in the Tarangire National Park. Dinner will be waiting when you arrive, after which you can retire to your room for a good night's sleep to energise you for tomorrow's game viewing activities.

For many, Oliver's Camp epitomises a classic safari camp experience and the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. With only eight tents, you can expect privacy and unobtrusive personal service as you enjoy two nights here.

Day 8

Discover Tarangire

Today you will explore the Tarangire National Park and see how life thrives around sources of water. Embark on game drives in prime game viewing areas and watch as wildlife gathers near waterholes - with predators waiting in ambush. Return to camp for a hearty dinner.

Day 9

Stay on a coffee farm

Set off again today as you head to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Stop along the way at Lake Manyara National Park for a picnic lunch and the chance to see the park's famous tree-climbing lions.

Carry on and settle in at Plantation Lodge, your home for the following two nights. Located on a secluded coffee farm about 30km from the Ngorongoro Crater, this lodge used to be a private house but has been converted into a beautiful guesthouse that combines African and European décor.

Day 10

Discover the Crater Floor

Today you will descend into the world-renowned Ngorongoro Crater, the world's largest intact volcanic caldera and home to an incredibly dense population of wildlife. Explore the crater floor and discover its constrasting landscapes as you search for animals like lion, rhino and numerous other species that make the crater their home - many visitors see the Big 5 on a single drive.

Day 11

Witness the Great Migration

The day starts with a scrumptious breakfast and a transfer to Manyara Airstrip. From here you'll fly to the Serengeti National Park where a representative will meet and transfer you to the Olakira Camp. Olakira Tented Camp changes location within the Serengeti in order to secure the best game viewing possible.

Between December and March the camp is situated in the Ndutu area, and from June the camp moves into central Serengeti around Seronera.

After lunch, set out on an afternoon game drive into this vast park. The game viewing is excellent all year round but if you visit between November and mid-June, you might have the chance to see thousands upon thousands of wildebeest migrating across these lands - a truly spectacular sight to behold.

Days 12-13

Discover the Serengeti

The following two days are filled with exciting game drives as you explore different regions of these apparently never-ending plains. The drives are specially designed to deliver an intensive Serengeti National Park experience. Spend the evenings relaxing at this comfortable camp, chatting around the fire, swopping game drive stories and listening to the sounds of the wilderness.

Day 14

Say goodbye to your safari

Enjoy one last breakfast in the Serengeti before you head to Seronera Airstrip and catch your flight back to Kilimanjaro International Airport from which you can connect to your homeward flight.
