Best of Kenya & Tanzania

Serengeti & Mara - Wing Safari

13 days/12 nights

This is Born Free Safaris' most in-depth exploration of Kenya and Tanzania's great game parks. It is planned to circle the parks, starting and ending in Kenya. This will give you the best international airfare as well as the chance to visit the northern Serengeti and ending in the Mara. Four flights are included to cut drive times. 

Start on a short flight to the foothills of Mt. Kilimanjaro and Amboseli Game Reserve where the elephant population number close to a thousand. Go on your very first game drive in the shadows of snow-capped "Kili". The reserve is also the home to cheetah, kudu, zebra, oryx and buffalo often seen close to the swamps. 

Cross into Tanzania where you will head deeper into the bush. Tarangire is all that typfies Africa from the herds of kudu and elephant to the mystical baobab and sausage trees. For a bit of a break in the game viewing, head to meet the local Maasai women of Tanzania. You will be struck by their ingenuity, progressive way of thinking and friendly nature. Then it's on to Ngorongoro Crater, a collapsed volcano/caldera that is now home to a myriad of wildlife. 

Scenery is stunning and constantly changing as you travel from the lush Ngorongoro highlands, then dropping down into the Olduvai region and the Serengeti.  Then fly into Kenya and the Maasai-Mara.

The Serengeti and Mara are one eco-system with the Kenya and Tanzania border dividing the areas. There are no fences and the herds wander at will. You will be awestruck by the sight of hundreds of animals as they do their annual trek finding richer feeding grounds and water.

This safari itinerary will be varied from season to season. Each base for exploration is strategically selected to maximize game viewing. From July-September the safari will spend more time in Kenya's Maasai Mara and during the rest of safari season longer in Tanzania's Serengeti. This is the perfect safari for the person passionate about wildlife.

Is this your dream trip?

If you are a wildlife enthusiast, this safari will certainly please. It is intense game viewing in the top parks of East Africa. Even though we have included four flights, there are still quite a number of long drives on rough roads. The terrain is constantly changing and so are the experiences, that will payoff in a very exciting wildlife journey. This may not be the journey for the person with a bad back or medical issues.  Similar safaris with less driving would be the Migration trips that are seasonal planned to minimize drive times.
