Detailed Description

This stunning adventure offers an immersive experience with East Africa's unique residents. Lion prides roam around your Maasai Mara lodge, elephants wander past your balcony in the Serengeti, and enthusiastic Maasai guides share their unique traditions and culture. Walking safaris take you into untouched corners of East Africa, while the vast beauty of the endless grass plains teem with great animal herds. This itinerary is all about authentic first-hand experiences and inspiring destinations. Learn about animal tracking from Maasai warriors, marvel at the Great Migration, and indulge in nature's greatest shows.

Big cats roam free in the Loita Hills but the Maasai tribe has coexisted with them for millennia. You'll spend three days hiking with Maasai guides, learning about their unique traditions and sharing a once-in-a-lifetime cultural interaction. Each day's hiking is tailored to you and can culminate in wild camping beneath the stars or the scenic elegance of Jan's Camp. You'll see nature from the ground, including leopards lurking in trees, herds of wildebeest and zebra, and various antelope. The Maasai will leave an indelible imprint in your memory as they share their unique view of the world.

The world's best game viewing is in the Maasai Mara and the Serengeti. You'll have three days in each, tailoring your own itinerary with a limitless combination of game drives and walking safaris. These grass plains are home to three million four hoofed mammals, and they're always escorted by a great cast of predators. Wildlife surrounds your luxury camp and the distinct sounds of wilderness continue all day and night. This isn't just a Big Five safari, it's a nonstop wildlife experience. Lion prides roam, leopards hunt, wildebeest herds cover the grass with swirls of dust, and elephants happily meander past your lavish tents. Both camps are ideally situated to maximize viewing of the Great Migration, when two million animals make their journey across the beautiful savannah. Even outside of the migration season, the Maasai Mara’s residents are always sure to astound.
