  1. DAY 1 Nairobi to Masai Mara (Lunch / Dinner)

    Today we head on to the Masai Mara National Reserve. We enter Masai land where these habitual
    pastoralists are often seen tending their cattle from the side of the road. We pass through the town of
    Narok, and continue our drive possibly getting a glimpse of some wildlife along the way.

  2. DAY 2 Masai Mara (Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner)

    We depart shortly after sunrise on our game drive into the Masai Mara Reserve. The Masai Mara is
    well known as one of East Africa’s best National Reserves and is home to a wide variety of wildlife
    species. Most famous for the Annual Migration, that consists of the impressive herds of over 1 million
    wildebeest, zebra and Thomson’s gazelle that cross over from the Serengeti National Park in
    Tanzania; the Masai Mara is most popular between July and October when these vast herds feast on
    the fresh grazing here. Following these herbivores are Africa’s predators that are often seen at a kill
    during this period. We game drive through a section of the park in search of the ‘Big 5’- elephant,
    rhino, buffalo, lion & leopard; along with the many other species of animals, reptiles and birds who
    make call this wilderness home.

  3. DAY 3 Masai Mara to Lake Nakuru National Park (EAMO) (Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner)

    Leaving Masai Mara we head towards our first overnight stop in the area of Lake Nakuru National
    Park, where our overnight campsite will be at EAMO; East African Mission Organisation. We will have
    the chance to interact with the local kids as well as a chance to learn more about this wonderful
    organisation.

  4. DAY 4 Lake Nakuru National Park (Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner)

    This morning we begin our exploration of the Lake Nakuru National Park – famous for the thousands
    of lesser and greater flamingos that flock to this soda lake’s edge. The numbers vary depending on
    the water level, and when it’s low, the lake almost turns pink. A truly spectacular sight! The park was
    established as a sanctuary for black and white rhino, which are often seen. We spend the day
    searching for these pre-historic looking beasts as well as the elusive leopard, encountering buffalo,
    giraffe, and various antelope. After our game drive, we head back to EAMO for the night.

  5. DAY 5 Kisii/Kericho Area (Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner)

    After breakfast, we leave the Lake Nakuru area and head to Kisii/Kericho passing through the
    picturesque tea plantations along the way. These towns are the main commercial centres in the Gusii
    Highlands, where cash crops like tea and coffee thrive because of its equatorial climate. We
    replenish our stocks before heading for Tanzania tomorrow.

  6. DAY 6 Musoma (Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner)

    We depart Kenya and head south into Tanzania. After border formalities, our drive takes us through
    the scenic granite landscapes adjacent to Africa’s largest lake – Lake Victoria. We spend the night at
    a campsite on the banks of Lake Victoria in the fishing town of Musoma.

  7. DAY 7 Serengeti National Park (Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner)

    After stocking up on supplies for the next couple of days, we head to the Serengeti National Park,
    entering the park after lunch. The Serengeti (Masai for “endless plains”) is famous for its enormous
    concentration of game (especially the big cats) and for the annual migration of millions of wildebeest,
    zebra and Thomson’s gazelles. The abundance of plains game in this area is truly astounding. We
    enter the park through the lesser travelled western corridor and game drive en-route to our campsite
    in the centre of the park. Tonight, we bush camp (no ablutions) in the wild surrounded by the sounds
    of the African bushveld, pierced only by the calls of the nocturnal wildlife. In the morning, we head off
    for another game drive and explore the landscape in search of the resident wildlife. With some luck,
    we may see some of Africa’s ‘Big 5’!

  8. DAY 8 Ngorongoro Crater (Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner)

    After an early start, we pack up our camp and continue our game drive through the Serengeti National
    Park. We head to the southern part of the park where the have the chance to see the endless plains
    this park is renowned for. We cross from the Serengeti to the Ngorongoro Conservation area at lunch
    time and begin our climb up the steep Crater edge. Tonight’s camp (basic ablutions) on the crater rim
    sharply contrasts the warmer plains below – we suggest you bring your winter woollies as it can get
    very cold at night.

  9. DAY 9 Ngorongoro Crater to Arusha (Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner)

    The Ngorongoro Crater with its 600 m high walls and 20 km width is a natural marvel. The Crater’s
    rim offers spectacular views, but the true scale 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 a chance to view an incredible concentration of East African mammals,
    such as elephant, rhino, buffalo, hippo, lion and plain’s game. After spending the morning game driving in The Crater, we continue to our campsite outside Arusha where we spend the evening
    musing over our thrilling wildlife experience.

  10. DAY 10 Arusha to Nairobi (Breakfast / Lunch)

    After breakfast, we begin our journey back to Nairobi. On arrival in the late afternoon, we exchange
    addresses and part ways, having just experienced a trip of a lifetime!

Kenya

Upon entering this beautiful east African country, you may be greeted with the words of “jambo” (hello) or “hakuna matata” (no problem) by the friendly locals. With a population of nearly 42 million and land area of more than 580 000 sq km Kenya is home to an abundance of animals and colourful tribes people, making it the perfect getaway for a once in a lifetime safari.

Tanzania

Tanzania’s natural environment and geographical features have made it one of the best tourist destinations in Africa. Being the biggest country in east Africa, Tanzania has heaps to offer her visitors, including 13 game reserves and national parks. Tanzania also forms part of the world’s largest animal’s movements, the great migration. Inland are the vast Serengeti National Park and the animal-packed Ngorongoro Conservation area, and thousands of people every year fulfil their lifetime achievement of climbing to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro, which is the highest mountain in Africa. On the coast, Zanzibar is exotic, intriguing and steeped in the unique Swahili culture.

Meals and menus vary as food is purchased en-route, and is subject to produce that is available
seasonally in the areas we travel through. As we support the local communities along the way, fresh
produce is mostly purchased direct from the producer or local grower and therefore has an organic
appearance. Our safari cooks are able to offer a wide variety of menus with the ingredients available,
even if the produce on offer is not of the same selection as what you may be used to back home.

Our overland vehicles are custom built converted trucks that have seating space for our passengers
and a storage area for luggage and all trip equipment. The trucks seat between 27-30 passengers on
our camping trips. Most seats are forward facing, though some models have a combination of forward,
backward and some inward facing seats with tables. Vehicles have sliding glass windows, and the
seating area is raised providing a great advantage for game viewing and photography. Seats are
cushioned and there is storage space for personal items like cameras, snacks and day packs in the
seating area.

All of the tours operated by ATC are participation trips meaning that all passengers are expected to
help out around camp. The crew members running the trip will set up a rota system that will be
followed. One day you may be on cleaning duty, the next day you may be on cooking duty and so
forth. This is not only to make the trip easier for all involved but also for you as the passengers to get
to know one another while on trip
