Touch down in Kenya's hectic capital, Nairobi. For those arriving early, a visit to the National Museum is highly recommended. The city also boasts an enviable array of restaurants, bars and cafes well worth exploring.
Located just south of the equator, the Aberdare Range makes up part of the majestic eastern rim of the Great Rift Valley. Renowned for its mesmerising scenery and impressive wildlife, the park is one of Kenya's real natural wonders. Stay in a unique tree lodge – the Ark – designed with multiple decks for incredible views. Keep your eyes peeled for lions, leopards, elephants, baboons and even the elusive golden cat or bongo.
Head west to visit the vast Lake Nakuru National Park in the heart of the Rift Valley. Lake Nakuru is justly famous for its visiting flocks of flamingos, pelicans, terns and cormorants, but there are plenty of land-dwelling animals as well. Rare Rothschild's giraffe and both black and white rhino can be spotted within the park's boundaries.
The iconic Masai Mara is one of Africa's most famous reserves and its sweeping plains play host to buffaloes, gazelles and various other herbivores. In turn, these well-fed creatures are prey for lions, leopards, cheetahs and other stealthy predators.
Return to Nairobi's urban sprawl for the night before continuing into Tanzania.
Try to spot Lake Manyara's legendary tree-climbing lions and watch out for the herds of zebra, wildebeest and buffalo roaming the surrounding plains of this stunning national park.
Travel to the Serengeti, where golden plains stretch as far as the eye can see. Venture through the wilderness and around rocky outcrops on safari to uncover the many animals that call the Serengeti home. Explore the national park at dawn and dusk, when both predator and prey are most active. Witness firsthand the unrelenting cycle of life on the African savanna. At night, relax in comfort back at the lodge.
Try to spot big cats lazing in the sun during an early-morning game drive. Soak up final views of the sweeping Serengeti plains while enjoying a picnic lunch, before travelling on to the immense Ngorongoro Crater. The following day, descend to the floor of volcanic Ngorongoro on a 4x4 safari. An abundance of species coexist in this area, including gazelle, zebra, buffalo and elephant.
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.
Return to Arusha. Why not get the group together for a final dinner and recount the trip highlights.
