Go to Masai Mara and really submerge yourself in the amazing natural setting there to connect on all levels. This reserve possesses an abundant amount of variety, which is what distinguishes the extraordinary from the everyday. It is at this time of day that one has the best opportunity to watch nocturnal hunters as they get ready for their nightly hunts. When animals like hippos return to their resting sites and others gather to drink before retiring for the night, drinking holes are also often active shortly before sunset. Come back to your base camp later in the evening for some dinner and to stay there for the night.
There are several options for lodging, including the Masai Mara Sopa Resort, the Simba Lodge, and the Mara Sarova Game Camp.

Day 2: The Maasai Mara National Reserve

It is simple to comprehend what makes the Mara and the surrounding private community conservancies so appealing to visitors. An incredible variety of animal species can be found living in this patchwork landscape of rolling hills, open grassland, and acacia forests. You will have the opportunity to spot lions, cheetahs, leopards, elephants, and a wide variety of other species in their natural environments while traversing the vast grasslands of the Masai Mara.

The park is home to one of the biggest densities of black rhinoceros seen anywhere in the world. In addition to this, there is a healthy population of white rhinos. In addition to that, it is a safe haven for the critically endangered Rothschild giraffe and is widely regarded as one of the best places in Kenya to see leopards.

Day 6: Amboseli to Arusha.
You will leave the wonderful land of the Maasai people today and journey to the land of the Kilimanjaro people. Before you go for Tanzania, you are going to get one more cup of that delicious coffee.

Day 8: Serengeti Safari
You will have two game drives today, the first one starting at 6.15 in the morning and lasting until 9 in the morning, and the second one starting at 3.30 in the afternoon and lasting until 6.30 in the evening, after lunch.

This vast crater contains nearly all of the animal species found in East Africa, including the critically endangered black rhinoceros. It boasts the highest concentration of biodiversity found anywhere on the planet. The crater contains a mountain, a mountain range, a dam, numerous marshes, and a soda lake that looks to be steam from the surface. In addition, there are huge grasslands. The high mineral concentration of the volcanic soil and grasses in this area contributes to the exceptionally great size of the tusks possessed by the large bull elephants that call this region home. During this captivating gaming tour, you will have the opportunity to have lunch. After spending the better part of a day exploring the crater’s interior, you will hike up to the crater’s rim and then continue on to the Rhino Lodge.

Day 12: Drive from Ngorongoro Conservation Area to Tarangire, passing by Lake Manyara
You get an early start this morning and make your way to Lake Tarangire from Lake Manyara in Tanzania. Upon arrival, you make your way to a park activity that takes place in the early afternoon. When you get closer to the national park, you’ll pass through some lovely woodlands filled with acacia and mahogany trees. These will provide as a preview of what’s to come. There will be a small break for a picnic lunch during the game drive, which will continue until the evening. Be on the lookout for buffaloes, giraffes, impalas, baboons, and blue monkeys when you are driving through the wildlife reserve on the wildlife drive. The Lake Manyara National Park is home to a number of interesting animals, including some that are known to climb trees; however, spotting these lions requires a bit of luck. When the conditions are correct, the shoreline takes on a pink hue as a result of the presence of millions of flamingos. After the wildlife drive, you will proceed straight to Tarangire, arriving there in the early evening hours.
The Tarangire Simba Safari Resort and the Tarangire Sopa Lodge are the accommodations available.

Day 13 will be spent in Tarangire before continuing on to Arusha.
If you are going on a safari, your guide will probably take you to Tarangire National Park after breakfast. Tarangire is well-known for its elephant colonies, savannah, iconic baobab trees, seasonal marshes, and the Tarangire River, which is responsible for the region’s continued existence. In order to quench their thirst and escape the scorching heat of Africa, the animals congregate beside the river. Giraffes, bushbucks, and hartebeests are some of the animals that you can come across on your safari. In addition to buffalo, zebras, and wildebeest can be found in the park. Examples of such predators are lions and leopards, which are always on the lookout for these other species. You will be able to take in the scenery of the surrounding countryside and observe the diverse array of local species from the open top of the vehicle. A picnic meal complete with coffee and soft drinks will be provided and enjoyed in the woods. Following a strenuous day spent exploring the woods, you will be transported to the Eileen’s Trees Hotel, where you will check-in, have dinner, and spend the night.
