Itinerary

The frenetic streets of Nairobi offer an exhilarating introduction to modern African life.
Learn about the life of the Meru as privileged guests at a family homestay. Perhaps explore the nearby markets, learn about Tanzanian coffee production or get to know the family's farm. Make friends and learn firsthand about life on the land.
Travel across the Great Rift Valley and through lands home to the Masai Mara. Be welcomed by the Umburu people on a visit to a local village.
Enter the Serengeti National Park, home to large herds of zebras and the iconic Big Five. Spot as many animals as possible on a game drive, then drift to sleep amid the calls of nocturnal birds. At dawn, an optional balloon ride over the park offers a chance to watch the animals of the African savanna from above - an unforgettable experience well worth splashing out for.
After a game drive through the park set up camp on the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater, overlooking jagged volcanic peaks and rolling grasslands.
Rise early and explore Ngorongoro's floor by 4x4 in search of wildlife including wildebeest, zebras, buffaloes, lions, elephants, hippos and maybe an elusive black rhino or leopard. Afterwards, make tracks to the village community of Mto Wa Mbu to admire local artwork and interact with the residents. At night, camp under a blanket of stars on the outskirts of Arusha.
Travel to Nairobi where the African odyssey ends. Why not stay on for a few days to soak up more of the fascinating Kenyan culture in its lively capital.
