Itinerary

The journey begins in Nairobi, Kenya's multicultural capital.
Meet the kids of the New Hope Children's Home. Head out on an afternoon game drive and admire Lake Nakuru as it shimmers with a blanket of pink flamingos.
Interact with locals on a village visit before camping near the shores of Kenya's beautiful Lake Naivasha.
Travel across the Great Rift Valley floor to Loita Hills, right in the heart of Maasai country. Tonight, camp amongst these friendly, semi-nomadic tribes and learn about their ancient culture from a local elder. Perhaps pick up a local recipe while sharing a campfire meal.
Safaris through the Masai Mara can reveal prides of lions, herds of elephants and perhaps a stealthy cheetah.
Return to the urban jungle of Nairobi.
Camp on the outskirts of Arusha in northern Tanzania.
Meet the Tanzanian locals in a small village then travel to Karatu.
Go on safari across the Serengeti plain in search of wildlife and fall asleep to the sounds of the bush.
Descend into the giant volcanic Ngorongoro Crater to look for its abundant wildlife and perhaps spy Africa's iconic Big Five.
Visit the Amani Children's Home, an inspirational school for underprivileged children, and then set up camp near Marangu.
Witness the day-to-day life of the crop-growing Chagga people before heading to the remote beauty of the Usambara Mountains.
Camp by the beach in Tanzania's tropical port, Dar es Salaam city.
Marvel at the eclectic architecture lining the cobbled streets, and visit an aromatic plantation on Tanzania's idyllic Zanzibar.
