Detailed breakdown

Days 1- 3: Touchdown in Nairobi | 3 Nights

Up arrow
Nairobi, Kenya

The capital of Kenya is a thriving, bustling and heady metropolis but the drive to Ololo, a charming safari lodge located on a working farm, soon takes you into the tree-lined roads of Karen, one of the city’s most upscale neighbourhoods. Your accommodation sits on the banks of the pristine Mbagathi River, bordering Nairobi National Park, where the majestic wildlife of Kenya can be found on your doorstep.

Ololo is the perfect welcome to Africa before your safari adventure really begins. Here, you're able to relax and unwind before heading into the thick of the untamed wilderness, so be sure to enjoy a massage or take a tranquil stroll around Ololo's farm before hopping the flight to your next destination.


Days 4 - 6: Safari in the Masai Mara | 3 Nights

Up arrow
Masai Mara, Kenya

After breakfast, you will be met and transferred to Wilson Airport where you will 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 spot-lit night drive before returning to Porini Lion Camp for dinner.

The following days are dedicated to exploring the rolling savannahs of the Mara on exciting game drives, either searching for the Wildebeest Migration between about August and November, or the prolific resident game all year round. Find a scenic spot for a delicious picnic lunch and return to camp for nights around the campfire.


Days 7 - 9: Discover the Serengeti | 3 Nights

Up arrow
Serengeti, Tanzania

Today you will fly to Kogatende Airstrip, from where you will head to Olakira Migration Camp to begin your thrilling Serengeti experience. Olakira offers comfortable under-canvas accommodation, and relocates periodically, following the Great Wildebeest Migration as it moves across the Serengeti-Mara ecosystem. Depending on the time of year you will be able to witness the incredible river crossings, calving or rutting stages of the annual cycle. Excellent year-round game viewing allows you to see large numbers of elephant, hippo, zebra and giraffe as well as apex predators including lion, leopard, cheetah and hyena on one of Africa’s most iconic landscapes.


Days 10 -12: Explore Ngorongoro Crater | 3 Nights

Up arrow
Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania

Your Tanzanian journey continues onto one of Africa’s most fascinating landmarks – the game-dense Ngorongoro Crater – en route to Gibb’s Farm, your last accommodation stop. This cosy, homey working farm is on the slopes of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, making it the perfect place to launch your forays into the Ngorongoro Crater, one of the top places in the world to see the Big 5.

The Crater is an extremely popular safari destination because the huge number of animals makes it easy to spot them, especially since the crater walls keep them contained in a landscape of fertile grazing, springs and wetlands.

After a full-day in the Crater, return to Gibb’s Farm to take advantage of the spa for a soothing massage – sometimes essential after the bumpy roads of a game drive! – or to simply unwind and birdwatch in their exquisite gardens.
