What's included in this trip
Highlights of Kenya & Tanzania SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Once a swamp but now called the 'green city in the sun', Nairobi is a relatively multicultural city with a range of cuisines, museums and cultural centres to enjoy.
Often shrouded in a carpet of pink flamingos, beautiful Lake Nakuru - and the surrounding national park - is home to a great number of wildlife and bird species.
The Masai Mara is the quintessential African experience with sparse open plains, dramatic skies and the world's most iconic animals living within its boundaries.
Lively Nairobi is the gateway to some of Africa's best national parks and is nicknamed 'the safari capital of the world'.
Dense forests, open plains and beautiful lake shores reveal Africa's animals in their element at Lake Manyara National Park, famous for its tree-climbing lions.
Teeming with animals and home to the famous migration of the wildebeest, the Serengeti is a marvel with rolling plains, iconic acacia trees and mesmerising skies.
Photographic opportunities abound in the Ngorongoro Crater, a massive volcanic caldera with so many animals, it's hard to know where to look first.
Wind down through the Rift Valley to Tarangire National Park. Embark on a game drive through the acacia woodlands and expansive grasslands to our eco-lodge accommodation, keeping a keen eye out for herds of elephant and sauntering giraffe.
Situated at the base of Mt Meru, Arusha is the safari capital of Tanzania and there's plenty to see and do. There are lots of good bars and restaurants. Markets and shops have most things you could want or need alongside various arts and crafts from the region.
