Today, fly to Amboseli National Park at the base of soaring, snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro, which, at 19,341 feet, is the highest freestanding mountain in the world. Set out in search of the region’s spectacular wildlife. Amboseli's huge draw is elephants. Watch as big herds roam the dusty plains, including “tuskers,” large, older bulls who have grown impressive tusks. Also view other game such as giraffes, Cape buffalo, zebras, wildebeests, hippos, hyenas and, occasionally, lions — all roaming freely amid swamps, springs and a shimmering, dried lake bed.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Set out on a full day exploring wildlife-rich Amboseli National Park, renowned for the large herds of elephants that roam its sun-drenched grasslands. View elephants up close, and watch for lions and buffalo as well, from a safari vehicle that seats just six, so that every guest enjoys a window seat. Enjoy a morning on safari before breaking for lunch. This afternoon, take another game drive.

Depart Amboseli this morning, and after crossing the border into Tanzania, stop for lunch in Arusha. Fly from Arusha to Tarangire National Park and settle into your luxurious accommodations. Hemmed between seasonal rocky river beds and overlooks a wooded valley, located near a water hole with access to a mud bath. The area hosts large wildlife populations, particularly elephants and Buffalo.

Today, embark on morning and afternoon game drives to explore Tarangire National Park. At Tarangire, find a stunning concentration of animals — herds of elephants, impalas and zebras. Look, too, for pythons and the twitching tails of leopards, who hide high above in sausage trees. Optional activities available at an additional cost include a walking safari and exploring Lake Gursi by canoe during the day or, as dusk falls, a night safari, to search for nocturnal animals rarely seen by visitors. With specialized lighting, look for lions and hyenas and smaller creatures — spotted genets, servals, bat-eared foxes and nightjars.

Lake Eyasi is a very scenic soda lake found on the southern border of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. The Hadzabe, a hunter-gatherer tribe, live close to the shores of Lake Eyasi, as do the Nilotic-speaking Datoga tribe who are pastoralists. We will have a good time visiting their homesteads, learning about their way of life, medicinal plants, and even animal tracking with bows and arrows with the Hadzabe hunters. The Hadzabe are believed to have lived here for nearly 10,000 years and continue to follow hunting-and-gathering traditions.

  • Training and exercise in arrow shooting and targeting
  • Preparation of huts for the women (being made of branches of trees)

  • Life in the caves in the rainy season, and under trees in the dry season
  • The monogamy practice for the marriage

Fly to Serengeti National Park, the vast Tanzanian landscape that plays host to the Great Migration for a portion of each year, when a staggering number of herbivores trek across the Serengeti plains in search of water and fresh grass — hungry predators awaiting them or following in their wake. Over the next two days, your adventure may reveal giraffes, wildebeests, elephants and much more on morning and afternoon game drives through the boundless Serengeti, home of one of the largest wildlife populations in the world.

Esirai Camp Serengeti

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Fly to the Masai Mara, the northern extension of the Serengeti. After settling into your accommodation on a private stretch of the Mara River, immerse yourself in the wild during an afternoon game drive. Follow the Mara River to see crocodiles basking in the sun; hippos as they wallow in muddy water; and monkeys, busy sparking mischief overhead. Here, too, you may sight any of more than 400 species of birds, among them eagles who glide effortlessly above the sun-soaked landscape. During your time in the Mara, enjoy the peace of mind that comes with staying at Sanctuary Olonana, recognized as one of the finest safari lodges in all of Africa.

Sala’s Camp Masai Mara Kenya

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Venture forth for one full day of exploring the open savanna, woodlands and tree-fringed rivers of the Masai Mara, where patience is rewarded with unique sightings such as a leopard retrieving a kill from the upper branches of an acacia or elephants protecting their young from opportunistic lions. Game viewing is never dull in the Mara, especially when the dramatic annual Great Migration unfolds. Amid the stunning scenery, watch as Maasai tribesmen traverse the plains or herd goats and cattle. On one day here, visit a Maasai village and meet with an elder to learn about local culture and traditions.

Sala’s Camp Masai Mara Kenya

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Fly back to Nairobi and stay in The most unforgettable bucket-list breakfast in the world.

The historic manor house has extraordinary appeal, that harks back to the 1930s when visitors first flocked to East Africa to enjoy safaris. With its stately façade, elegant interior, verdant green gardens, sunny terraces and delightful courtyards, guests often remark that it’s like walking into the film Out of Africa: indeed, one of its twelve rooms is named after the author Karen Blixen.

One of the most fascinating things about Giraffe Manor is its resident herd of Rothschild’s giraffes who may visit morning and evening, poking their long necks into the windows in the hope of a treat, before retreating to their forest sanctuary.

    It is a great place to shop not too far from New York. We took the bus from Port Authority and traveled through the countryside to get there.
