11 Days Safari Tanzania + Kenya

Explore the greatest national parks during this 11 day safari in Tanzania and Kenya. Visit the famous Serengeti, home to an abundance of wildlife as well as the impressive wildebeest migration. And the striking Ngorongoro Crater, a natural wonder with the world’s highest concentration of wildlife. These are two of Africa’s Seven Natural Wonders you can witness on this amazing safari. You also get to visit the Masai Mara in Kenya.

Safaris in Tanzania and Kenya:

The Masai Mara is the only national park that really adds value to all the Tanzanian national parks. Usually it is much easier to spot wild animals in Tanzania and the parks are closer to each other. So you will see much more in a shorter amount of time in Tanzania.

Best time to combine Tanzania and Kenya

The only time we recommend to combine Kenya with a safari in Tanzania is from mid September until mid Oktober. This is when more animals of the great migration have crossed into Kenya.  During the other months the great migration is in the Serengeti national park.  Although, we can’t guarantee that actually more animals of the great migration will be in Masai Mara during this period as some years a significant part of the migration remains in the northern Serengeti. This depends on the amount of annual rain. Also take into consideration that the Masai Mara is a much smaller area than the Serengeti and can easily be crowded with tourists.

Advantage of this safari

This 11 days private safari in Tanzania and Kenya offers you the flexibility to travel at your own pace. Exactly the way you like it! You will have a private safari vehicle and guide throughout the entire trip. The hotels we selected for you during this safari are Silver class. If you prefer more luxury, you can choose Gold or Platinum class hotels.

Day 1: Arrival Kilimanjaro - Arusha

Upon your arrival at Kilimanjaro airport, your Tanzania Specialist guide will be waiting for you and he will transfer you to the lodge. On the way you will get a first impression of Tanzania: you smell the beautiful nature, hear the animals and see the lively streets. Once you arrive at the lodge, you can relax and enjoy your time at the swimming pool, with a refreshing cool Tanzanian drink in your hand. Karibuni sana!

This trip is an exclusive private safari, this means that you can make the most out of this trip!
In consultation with your guide, you can decide what time the game drive starts and ends, but also how long you will stop to observe and take pictures of animals in the parks. Don’t be afraid to ask your guide any question – our Tanzania Specialist guides have an enormous knowledge of the wildlife and country and they love to share this with you…!

Day 2: Lake Manyara National Park

The first national park you visit is one of the smaller but most scenic ones. You can see elephants and huge troops of baboons in the forest and if you are lucky even tree-climbing lions. A variety of wildlife can be found around the huge soda lake, like buffalos, warthogs, giraffes, wildebeest, zebras and flamingos. The shallow hippo pool offers excellent opportunities for hippo sightings and you will have a spectacular view of the Rift Valley Escarpment.

Lake Manyara is an ideal location to combine game drives with enjoyable activities, like a cultural tour, mountainbike tour or canopy walk.

Day 3 - 4: Serengeti National Park

Today you continue your safari in the Serengeti national park. Its stunning landscape can be seen in some of the most impressive nature documentaries. The endless plains and abundance of wildlife are unsurpassed. The annual wildebeest migration with more than a million wildebeest is probably the highlight of the Serengeti. It is a true spectacle and impressive to watch millions of wildebeest, zebras and gazelles thunder across the endless plains of the Serengeti. Together with your private guide you will be looking for the herds across the plains. Apart from the migratory animals you will also get to see lots of others, like lions, cheetahs, leopards, and many more. Expect to be impressed by the natural beauty of Africa’s most famous park.

If you like to watch wildlife from another perspective, we recommend you to go on a hot air balloon safari. It is an amazing experience to drift silently above the plains with herds of wildlife passing by underneith.

Early morning you drive from Arusha to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. The road leads you over the Great Rift Valley, through the crater forest, to the striking Ngorongoro Crater. This collapsed volcano is the main feature of the area and creates a unique ecosystem with a wide variety of vegetation. Enjoy the beautiful colours of the landscapes and the diversity of animals. The crater is home to the highest concentration of wildlife in Africa and is choked with elephants, lions, buffaloes, hippos and even the rare black rhino. This is one of the best places to spot all of the Big Five. The views from the crater rim over the crater floor are incredible. Because of its natural beauty the Ngorongoro Crater is chosen as one of Africa’s Seven Natural Wonders.

Nairobi is one of Africa’s largest and most interesting cities. And it never seems to sleep – the entire town has a boundless energy, and is thriving place.

The Masai Mara is located in western Kenya, is one of the largest game reserves and is approximately 270 km from the capital Nairobi – only 45 minutes’ flight time. It borders the Serengeti national park and together they form Africa’s most diverse ecosystem. The Masai Mara national reserve extends over 1,510 km² and is home to over 95 species of mammals and over 400 species of birds. It is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Kenya and is located in the Great Rift Valley in mostly open grasslands.
