Day 9: Narok

Today we drive to Narok, a town with a large Masai population. Take a break from pitching tents and relax at a hotel. Take a refreshing dip in the pool and enjoy a cool drink or go for a walk around the town and meet some local people.

Day 10: Kisii

Today we leave Narok and travel west. Crossing the incredibly scenic Great Rift Valley on the way to the tea-growing highlands is a fantastic introduction to the beautiful landscapes of Kenya. We also pass through the ancient homeland of the Masai. Look out for these tall, graceful tribesmen dressed in distinctive scarlet robes, tending to their prized herds of cattle. We make our final stop near the hilltop town of Kisii, our last chance to stock up on supplies before heading into the African wilderness.

Day 11: Lake Victoria

We begin this morning with a visit to one of this areas famous sandstone carving co-operatives. You can watch the master craftsmen at work and perhaps also pick up a few hand- carved souvenirs while you’re here. Cross the border into Tanzania (approx. 6 hours including border crossing at Sirari, Kenya/Isebania, Tanzania) and camp on the shores

of Lake Victoria, one of the least visited and, as a result, also the least developed section. This afternoon there are plenty of activities to choose from. You may wish to hire bicycles for a fascinating local experience from handlebar height. It is possible to hire a boat and visit a local island, or you may prefer to just chill out with a cold drink lakeside.

Days 12-13: Serengeti

National Park

Today we cover 100km from Lake Victoria to the Park gate on a smooth road before enjoying our picnic lunch at the entrance to the Serengeti. We reach our bush camp in the heart of the park at around 6pm. The following morning we will head out while the animals are at their most active and head back to camp for brunch around 11am. After spending the day relaxing (just like the animals do) we head out again as the day begins to cool for our dusk game drive, returning in time for another delicious camp dinner. An optional balloon ride over the Serengeti at sunrise is an unforgettable experience.

Day 14: Ngorongoro Crater

This morning we game drive out of the park, leaving around lunchtime, as we continue our journey to the extraordinary Ngorongoro Crater. Along the way we stop at Olduvai

Day 15: Meserani

We spend this morning on the crater floor, travelling in smaller 4WD vehicles accompanied by a local driver. There is excellent game- viewing all year round here, as the crater has about 30,000 resident animals.

After the safari, ascend the slopes of the volcanic massif to the village of Mto Wa Mbu where we will make a short stop before continuing on to tonight’s campsite.
