The Masai Heartlands Overview
Cross Kenya and Tanzania through the rich, fertile Masai Mara
The wonders of Kenya and Tanzania unfold before you on this incredible overland adventure, which goes deep into the heartland of the Maasai tribespeople and the finest game parks in eastern Africa. While travelling through the world-renowned Masai Mara and the vast open Serengeti plains and on to the stunning lakes of the Great Rift Valley and the dramatic scenery of the Ngorongoro Crater, you'll spot a wealth of exotic predators and peaceful herbivores. Heading off the beaten track to walk in the footsteps of the Maasai will leave you with memories of Africa that will last a lifetime.
The Masai Heartlands 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.
Meaning 'rough water' in Maasai due to the occurrence of sudden storms, Lake Naivasha surface is also broken by the yawns of hippos and countless birds flying across its surface.
The charming Loita Hills are home to colourful Maasai and their villages, rolling plains, wonderful wildlife and iconic acacia trees.
Located in south-west Kenya, 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.
Close to the Masai Mara Reserve, Narok is the business centre of the region and home to many shops and Maasai locals.
Kisii is a large town set in a fertile, hilly part of Kenya and grows an abundance of bananas, pineapple, sugarcane and coffee beans.
Finding itself part of Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda, Lake Victoria is Africa's largest lake and home to a big population on both its shores and within its waters.
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.
Situated around halfway between Arusha and Ngorongoro, Mto Wa Mbu is a tiny town located near three rivers which is known for its curios and red-skinned bananas.
Lively Nairobi is the gateway to some of Africa's best national parks and is nicknamed 'the safari capital of the world'.
