This exceptional 10-day East Africa safari will take you to the most renowned wildlife destinations in Kenya and Tanzania.

Your journey starts in the Tarangire National Park, famous for its baobab trees and massive elephant herds.

The next leg of your journey takes you to the Ngorongoro Crater, the world’s biggest caldera. Steeped in fascinating myth and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Ngorongoro Crater is nearly three million years old. Here, a plethora of wildlife roams the floor of this extinct volcano, while the Crater’s rim provides spectacular views over the landscape.

Your journey culminates in the Masai Mara in Kenya. Above all, and apart from its picturesque scenery and regal Maasai people clad in striking red garb, the Mara is the scene of the annual Great Migration. Immerse yourself in the vast plains of the Serengeti and bear witness to a theatrical wildlife spectacle. However, you can expect spectacular game viewing any time of the year.

Your Itinerary

2 nights in Tarangire National Park, Tanzania

The first leg of your journey lets you catch a glimpse of plains game, lion and elephant right on your doorstep at the Sanctuary Swala Camp. Set in the heart of Maasai country, in total seclusion among giant acacia trees and looking out beyond the flat savannah, your accommodation is the perfect base from which to experience the Tarangire National Park, which, while less well known than the Serengeti, boasts its fair share of magnificent wildlife.

Enjoy morning and evening game drives, guided walks, sundowners, bush dinners and picnics. At your camp, a sparkling swimming pool offers a cool escape from the heat, while the library is a quiet spot to enjoy a good read. You also have an opportunity to visit Sanctuary Retreats Philanthropy Projects including the Mwika Beekeeping Project.

DINING SUGGESTIONS

Look forward to superb meals accompanied by fine wines. Take in the fantastic sight of a constant procession of animals at the waterhole.
