Combine Kenya and Tanzania for the ultimate East Africa safari. Fly in itineraries make the most of your time using the region’s air hubs, Nariobi and Dar es Salaam. Nairobi has several unmissable attractions of its own, especially Giraffe Manor and the Daphne Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage, both on our Top 5 animal encounters for families.
Kenya and Tanzania are primarily big game destinations and home to many of Africa’s legendary parks. Safari tours can easily blend Kenya's Masai Mara and Amboseli reserves with Tanzania's Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater. The wildebeest migration is the best reason for combining these two destinations. The migration starts in the southern Serengeti, moves through the central and western Serengeti, and into the Masai Mara. By combining Kenya and Tanzania, you’ll witness the spectacle of the mega-herds and enjoy Africa’s best crowd-free game viewing away from the main event.
It is absolutely worth exploring off-the-beaten track to take in the spectacular scenery and rare wildlife in parks like Kenya’s Samburu and Tanzania’s Tarangire. A combination safari invites easy add-ons, such as gorilla and chimp trekking and the idyllic tropical islands off Africa’s eastern seaboard, like Zanzibar, Seychelles and Mauritius, where you can soak up the sun at family-friendly resorts, dive with whale sharks and stroll along private, palm-fringed beaches.
