In the middle of nowhere!

Try to imagine a camping like this, where you go to sleep surrounded of nothing and you wake up in the middle of nowhere, but with plenty of nature and a magnificent landscape. This is Africa!

Africa 2013 - New Expedition



Detailed itinerary of our next expedition to Africa 2013.

Day 1, Nairobi to Lake Nakuru National Park

We travel via the Masai escarpment, providing spectacular views of the Great Rift Valley, to Lake Nakuru National Park.This park is famo...
us for its large populations of Pink Flamingos as well as both Black and White Rhinos.

Day 2, Lake Nakuru National Park to Lake Naivasha

Moving east again we head to Lake Naivasha, home to the magnificent African Fish Eagle. At 1880 m this is the highest Rift Valley lake and time permitting we can spend the afternoon enjoying optional excursions close by. We spend our last night in a lovely campsite on the lakes edge.

Day 3, Lake Naivasha to Masai Mara

Entering Masai land we are likely to see these colourful locals tending their stock on the side of the road. Our overnight stop looks out across the Masai Mara National Reserve.

Day 4, Masai Mara

We will look for the infamous Big 5 as well as the plentiful plains game and birdlife on our game drives. You will see this 'garden of Eden' in a state nature intended it to be, rolling hills, huge plains, and an abundance of game matched no where else on earth. Buffalo, elephant, lion, cheetah, zebra, wildebeest, waterbuck just to name a few of the animals that inhabit this wild wonderland. Sitting around a campfire listening to the bush sounds, whilst watching the sun set is the perfect way to finish a day's game viewing in the Mara.

Day 5 to 6, Masai Mara to Serengeti National Park

After breakfast we leave the Masai Mara and head for the Serengeti National Park on a two day scenic journey. Passing through the picturesque tea plantations, we replenish our stocks midway, heading for Tanzania. Continuing south, we enter Tanzania, and after border formalities we head off to spend the night at a campsite on the banks of Lake Victoria, passing the grand granite landscapes along the way.

Day 7, Serengeti National Park

Our day is spent game driving through the Serengeti National Park.

Day 8, Serengeti National Park to Ngorongoro Conservation Area

An absolute 'must do' when in Tanzania. Pass through the 'Cradle of Mankind' and the Rift Valley whilst enjoying one of the best game viewing opportunities Africa has to offer. An early start takes us off for a full morning game drive in the Serengeti. We head back towards Ngorongoro where we sleep on the Crater's edge. We suggest you wear your winter woollies as it can get pretty cold on the rim of the crater during night times.

Day 9, Ngorongoro Conservation Area to Arusha

This morning we descend into the Ngorongoro Crater with its 600 metre walls. This Garden of Eden is 20-kilometre wide and a true natural wonder. The size of this caldera is only appreciated from the floor itself where the abundance of its animal inhabitants becomes apparent. It is home to nearly every species of African animal and offers great photo opportunities of most of East Africa's mammals, such as Elephant, Rhino, Buffalo, Hippo, Lion, and plain's game. After spending the morning in the Ngorongoro Crater you will return to our overnight stop near Arusha for the night.
 
Day 10, Arusha to Nairobi

Time for some shopping in Arusha this morning before a short drive returns us to Nairobi where our tour ends on arrival.
