On arrival at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport you will be warmly welcomed by a member of the &Beyond team, who will drive you into vibrant Nairobi.
Days 2 & 3 - Masai Mara National Reserve
After an early breakfast, you will be driven to Wilson Airport, where you will board a flight to Kichwa Airstrip. On arrival, you will be welcomed by a member of the team from Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp, who will drive you to the camp.
As Kenya’s most renowned wilderness destination, the Masai Mara National Reserve offers exceptional game viewing, including the opportunity to witness the seasonal Great Wildebeest Migration, one of nature’s greatest wildlife spectacles. The park takes its name from the Mara River, which flows through the reserve, as well as from the Maasai people. Covering an area of 1 510 km² (580 square miles), the Masai Mara is a land of breathtaking vistas, abundant wildlife and endless plains. The reserve is a photographer’s and naturalist’s paradise, with abundant elephant, buffalo, giraffe, lion and cheetah sighted year round alongside the migratory wildebeest and zebra.
Steeped in the aura of classical safari, the recently refurbished Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp boasts 12 classic tents, 20 superior tents and eight superior view tents. While all the tents look out onto the open grasslands or the shady forest surrounding the Sabaringo River, the superior view tents boast exceptionally beautiful, uninterrupted views of the Masai Mara. The superior tents feature Maasai-inspired interiors that showcase a simple and contemporary use of local materials.
Spend two nights in a superior view tent at &Beyond Kichwa Tembo Masai Mara Tented Camp. Your stay includes accommodation, three meals daily, teas and coffees, soft drinks, house wines, local brand spirits and beers, two scheduled game drives per day, transport to and from Kichwa Tembo Airstrip and emergency medical evacuation insurance.
Days 4 & 5 - Serengeti National Park
Depart the Masai Mara on a flight to Migori Airstrip, where you be welcomed and driven to Tarime, where you will cross the border into Tanzania to board another flight to the Serengeti National Park.
Days 6 & 7 - Serengeti National Park
Enjoy an early morning breakfast before being driven to the Grumeti Airstrip, where you will board a flight to Lobo Airstrip. Upon landing, you will be collected for a scenic game drive to &Beyond Klein’s Camp.
&Beyond Klein’s Camp is situated on a private concession on the edge of the Serengeti National Park, where night drives and bush walks allow guests to explore the nocturnal world of the predators or to get an intimate glimpse into the details of the African bush. Overlooking the wooded hillsides, rolling grasslands, lush marshes and forested river banks of the Serengeti and with Kenya’s renowned Masai Mara directly to the north, Klein’s Camp is one of the most strategically positioned wildlife sanctuaries in the world. Set on the edge of the Kuka Hills, it commands breath-taking views of the valley below, through which huge herds of wildebeest and zebra migrate each year. While the Great Migration is an annual highlight, guests can experience excellent year-round lion, leopard and cheetah sightings. Huge herds of buffalo and breeding herds of elephant are all resident and birdwatching in the seasonal marshlands is exceptionally rewarding. Several species of raptor breed on the cliffs above Klein’s Camp and numerous birds of prey, including vultures and eagles, are frequently spotted soaring on the updrafts.
Days 8 & 9 - Serengeti National Park
Enjoy an early morning game drive and a wholesome breakfast before being driven back to the airstrip for a flight to &Beyond Serengeti Under Canvas.
The luxurious tented camps of &Beyond Serengeti Under Canvas move around the park year-round, attempting to anticipate the movements of the Great Migration and exploring the remote and beautiful corners of the Serengeti with excellent resident game. Using only private campsites, these mobile camps are entirely intimate and exclusive, featuring spacious safari tents, each with a double bed, indoor seating area, ensuite bathroom, separate w.c and al fresco bucket shower. Redolent of classic safari style, custom-made Indian rugs, crisp linens, sparkling crystal and polished brass lend flair to the simplicity of camping. Carefully planned according to the projected movements of the Great Migration, the camps aim to bring guests within comfortable driving distance of the herds. However, the wildebeest masses move with the rains, which may occur at a different time each year, so it is not always possible to accurately predict where they will be. &Beyond’s expert guides will always try to place guests in the midst of the thronging wildebeest but, should the animals not appear when expected, the guides’ intimate knowledge of the ample resident game will ensure a rich game viewing experience.
Days 10 & 11 - Ngorongoro Crater
Enjoy an early morning game drive, followed by a delicious breakfast, before being driven back to the airstrip for a flight to Manyara Airstrip. On arrival, you will be welcomed by a member of the &Beyond Ngorongoro Crater Lodge team, who will drive you to the lodge.
Today, we wave a fond farewell. After a scrumptious breakfast, you will be collected for your flight to Kilimanjaro International Airport, where you will board your flight home.
