Detailed Description

This trip begins by immediately launching you into the wilds of Africa in Amboseli National Park. With Mount Kilimanjaro acting as a backdrop to this portion of the safari, this tour spends two days watching elephants, giraffes and lions cruise across the picturesque plains. Spend an afternoon visiting a local Masai warrior community, learning about their unique culture and agricultural practices. From Amboseli, you will detour quickly through Tanzania’s Lake Manyara National Park, home to countless numbers of flamingos and the unique tree-climbing lions. From a lodge perched atop a ridge, guests can admire the alkaline lake and mixed forest that characterize this region.

From Manyara, you will move on to the infamous Serengeti National Park. The park’s substantial lion population allows guests to watch multiple prides interact with the surrounding ungulates. Rhinoceros, leopards, and cheetahs dot the sidelines of the stage set for the world’s greatest migration of wildebeest. With sunrise picnics, evening sundowners and the opportunity to sail over the Serengeti in a hot air balloon, guests will spend two days experiencing the serene magic of this park.

The adventure cumulates with two days spent exploring the prehistoric Ngorongoro Crater. The dense rainforest of the crater walls explodes out onto the vast plains and reservoirs of the crater floor, which teem with the resident wildlife. With the opportunity to explore intimately the region on foot under the leadership of a local guide, guests will be able to connect with the intricacies of this remarkable ecosystem, leaving Africa both more knowledgeable and more inspired.
