East Africa offers superb game-viewing year-round, although we recommend avoiding travel in April and May which are the "long rains" when heavy rainfall occurs, roads and airstrips are often flooded and many of the lodges close. The main dry season runs from June until the end of October, and the "short rains" come in November, which are short-sharp bursts of rain every few days. December until March are often hotter and more humid months, with occasional rainfall but still a great time to travel.

Itinerary

Fly to Nairobi
Day 1-2

Nairobi, Kenya

Arrive Nairobi, you will be met and transferred to your hotel situated in Karen, a peaceful suburb located away from the hustle and bustle of Nairobi.   

Accommodation: Hemingways Nairobi ( 1 night )
Day 2-5

Maasai Mara, Kenya

Fly to the Maasai Mara, home of Out of Africa and countless documentaries, and once you're here it'll be easy to see why, spend your days tracking big cats, and in the evenings enjoy fine dining in your stunning tented camp. Enjoy the romance of sleeping under canvas surrounded by the sights and sounds of the wildlife, falling asleep to the sounds of cicadas and waking to the dawn birdsong.

Accommodation: &Beyond Bateleur Camp ( 3 nights )
Day 5-7

Klein's Concession, Greater Serengeti, Tanzania

Today your holiday continues as you fly to Tanzania and transfer to your camp located in the north of the Serengeti – an area made up of riverine forest and rolling savannah. The migratory herds of wildebeest and zebra are in this area heading north during June and July and return, heading south, during October and December. This incredible natural phenomenon is very unpredictable.

Accommodation: &Beyond Klein's Camp ( 2 nights )
Day 7-9

Ngorongoro Crater, Northern Tanzania

Next fly to the Ngorongoro Crater, staying at the iconic Ngorongoro Crater Lodge perched right on the rim of this spectactular caldera. The views here are worthy of any movie set, and even your bathtub takes in the vista. Game-drives on the crater floor are always rewarding, with black rhino, leopard, flamingos on the lake and large prides of lion to name a few.

This exciting safari includes some of Kenya and Tanzania's most wildlife-rich national parks, staying in some of the best safari camps and lodges throughout. Expect breathtaking scenery, unforgettable wildlife and superb safari guiding.

Accommodation: &Beyond Ngorongoro Crater Lodge ( 2 nights )
