Embark on a 13-day adventure through some of East Africa’s most spectacular safari destinations. Your journey takes you through the breath-taking landscapes and wildlife-rich regions of Kenya, as well as the diverse ecosystems, vast plains and iconic national parks of Tanzania.

Being a Sky Safari tour, you’ll enjoy a curated luxury safari that ensures you make the most of your time in Africa. Direct flights take you from camp to camp with comfortable ground transfers taking care of you on the road. This allows you to enjoy more time on the ground and less time travelling. Luxurious accommodations throughout provide a diverse range of properties that all offer exceptional service and comfort.

Start off in Kenya’s capital, Nairobi before touching down in Amboseli National Park, where views of vast herds of elephants and the iconic Mount Kilimanjaro await. Then it’s off to the Loisaba Conservancy in Laikipia for unique safari experiences, including lion tracking, horse and camel safaris, and cultural visits to a local Samburu village. The last stop on your Kenya tour is the legendary Masai Mara, home to iconic African landscapes, bountiful groups of animals and nature’s grandest show: the Great Wildebeest Migration.

Cross the border into Tanzania to start the next leg of your adventure. Your East African tour continues in the world-famous Serengeti. Known for its dramatic natural scenery and an astounding variety of wildlife, the Serengeti offers an authentic African safari experience. And let’s not forget that you’ll enjoy front-row seats to the Wildebeest Migration. The Serengeti isn’t the only safari-heavy hitter you’ll see in Tanzania. Your next stop is Ngorongoro Crater, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Earth's largest intact volcanic caldera. Here, you can explore the basin of this gaping crater, which is chock-full of nearly all the most popular African animals.

After an early bite at Hemingways, you’ll be met by a SkySafari representative who will brief you on your East African safari. Once you know all the details, you’ll be driven to Nairobi’s Wilson Airport, where a SkySafari flight whisks you away to the incredible Amboseli National Park. Enjoy a slow morning game drive on your way to your next home away from home.

You’ll arrive at Tortilis Camp in time for a wholesome lunch. This rustic yet modern camp is renowned for its exceptional service and scenic hillside setting on the border of Amboseli National Park. With breath-taking views of Mounts Kilimanjaro and Meru, even doing the most basic of tasks like brushing your teeth or sipping on your morning coffee becomes a magical affair.

One last breakfast at Tortilis and a morning game drive through Amboseli sees you off on the next leg of your journey. A comfortable transfer takes you to Amboseli airstrip for a SkySafari flight to Loisaba Conservancy where a VIP welcome awaits you. After a briefing about the conservancy, head off to Loisaba Tented Camp, enjoying a game drive en-route. You’ll arrive just in time for a delectable lunch, after which an afternoon game drive is on the cards. Round the day off with dinner and drinks back at camp.

Loisaba has an array of activities to fill your morning. Start your day off with a classic game drive or guided bush walk. Or if you’d rather try an alternative experience to traditional game viewing, horse and camel safaris are available. Lion tracking, seasonal fishing, mountain biking and a visit to the conservancy headquarters to meet the anti-poaching sniffer dogs are also available. Or indulge your cultural side with a visit to the Samburu village and interact with the local community.

End your morning off with breakfast in the bush before driving back to camp. You have some time before lunch, so why not spend it being pampered with a spa treatment? If that’s not your style, some light reading or a power nap is a good way to unwind. After lunch, enjoy an afternoon game drive followed by sundowners in the bush as the sun sets and a delicious dinner back at camp.

Laikipia, Kenya

Fill up on breakfast at Loisaba before your SkySafari flight to the legendary Masai Mara. Your first experience in this national reserve will be an exciting game drive en-route to your next destination. You’ll arrive at the charming Sand River Masai Mara in time for a delectable lunch followed by an afternoon game drive. End your day with sundowners in the bush, taking in the incredible scenery of the untamed landscape and tranquil sounds of nature. Return to camp for a bite to eat and then settle into one of the modern canvas suites for the evening – be sure to rest up for the next day’s big adventure.

Wake up before the first rays of light illuminate the horizon and fuel up on an early breakfast. Then hop into a game drive vehicle and enjoy a full day game drive into the legendary Masai Mara. From the Big 5 to big cats and everything in-between, you have a good chance of spotting nearly every African animal on your bucket list.

And let’s not forget about the stunning scenery. Open grassland, seasonal riverlets and clumps of distinctive acacia trees are best observed during your stop. A picnic hamper lunch is served in the middle of the bush, allowing you to enjoy a wholesome meal while immersing yourself in the African wilderness. By the time you head back to camp, you’ll have worked up a healthy appetite – which is good because a mouth-watering dinner under the stars awaits you back at Sand River.

Day eight concludes your safari tour of Kenya but is the beginning of your journey through Tanzania. Enjoy one last meal in the Masai Mara before your transfer to Keekorok airstrip. Catch your SkySafari flight to Kisumu. From Kisumu you’ll head to Musoma before a final flight to Lobo or Seronera (depending on the season).

You’ll be greeted warmly by a SkySafari representative for a transfer to your first stop in Tanzania. Serengeti Migration Camp is hidden amongst rocky outcrops in the northern part of the Serengeti National Park. With elevated tented suites to afford breath-taking views of the Serengeti plains. Enjoy a welcome lunch, afternoon game drive and then dinner at camp.

A day in the Serengeti starts with a hearty breakfast to fuel you for the game drive ahead. The rest of the morning is spent exploring this diverse, wildlife-filled environment. In season, witness nature’s grandest show: the Great Wildebeest Migration. During your game drives, your guide will select a safe, scenic spot to enjoy lunch in the bush before returning to camp for an afternoon of relaxation and a delicious dinner under a canopy of stars.

After breakfast at Serengeti Migration Camp, enjoy a leisurely game drive en-route to the airstrip for a SkySafari flight to Manyara. Fill your belly with a delicious lunch before another game drive, this time through the epic Lake Manyara National Park. Lying at the foot of the Great Rift Valley escarpment, this diverse environment is characterised by forests, wetlands, floodplains and acacia woodlands that support a variety of wildlife – the most notable of which are the famous tree-climbing lions.

Your day winds down as you head to your accommodation for the next two nights, The Manor at Ngorongoro. This charming, luxury Cape Dutch manor house set amid a gorgeous garden is the perfect base from which to explore the ever-popular Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Settle into your cottage and get acquainted with the lodge before unwinding with a spa treatment. Then it’s off to a lovely dinner to end off your evening. Rest up as tomorrow is a full day exploring the Crater floor!

Activate the morning with an early breakfast in preparation for a full day tour of the Ngorongoro Crater. Regarded as one of East Africa’s top safari destinations, Ngorongoro Crater offers a unique experience – a thriving, diverse habitat that’s home to 30,000 animals located in an ancient volcanic caldera. During your picnic lunch in the crater, take the time to truly immerse yourself in your surroundings and take in the beauty of the untouched nature around you. A delicious dinner and your cosy room back at the Manor await. Take a relaxing hot bath and sink into a soft sofa next to the fireplace.

Your ride from the airstrip to Sand River Masai Mara Camp, a secluded spot in the southern area of the reserve, is your first game drive: don’t be surprised if you meet most of the Big Five before lunch. Even if you don’t, your afternoon game drive might oblige: these acacia-dotted plains are dense with game. Keep your eyes peeled for lion, leopard and cheetah, hyena, giraffe and elephant, and 500-plus species of bird. 

Raising a Sundowner in this classic tranche of wilderness is the perfect way to toast the day. Returning to Sand River Masai Mara is the icing on the cake – there are few more elegant places to stay than this enclave of 1920s glamour. The Condé Nast Traveller Readers’ Choice Awards 2020 named it one of the 50 Best Resorts in the World and seventh best in Africa.


Day 7: Masai Mara National Reserve

Up arrow

After a dawn breakfast, set off with a packed picnic hamper for a full day’s game drive, so you can delve deeper into the reserve. Nowhere in Africa is wildlife more abundant. And while the seasonal migration of two million wildebeest, zebra and gazelle crossing from the Serengeti is one of Mother Nature’s greatest spectacles, the profusion of wildlife in the Mara – from 450 species of bird to the Big Five – makes it one of the best safari spots year round.

Savour your final breakfast in Tanzania! All good things must come to an end, unfortunately, but fear not because you still have a day in Arusha. You’ll be driven to the airstrip to catch your SkySafari flight to Arusha Airport.

Depending on the time of your outbound flight, a day room is available to you at Arusha Coffee Lodge, located on Tanzania’s largest coffee plantation. While here, take the time to unwind and reflect on your safari experience in Africa while enjoying the views of Mount Meru, walking along the rows of emerald-green plantations or relaxing with the freshest cup of coffee at the coffee shop and patisserie.

Closer to the time of your departing flight, you’ll be driven to Kilimanjaro International Airport. We hope to see you again soon!
