This twin-centre itinerary is designed for those wanting to see the highlights of East Africa and combines the countries of Kenya and Tanzania. You will begin in Kenya where you will fly to eco-chic Saruni Samburu Lodge, with six luxury villas and spectacular views over Kenya's Northern Frontier District and Mount Kenya. Here you will be surrounded by over 200,000 acres of unspoiled wilderness, teeming with wildlife to exclusively explore and you will be guided by Samburu warriors, passionate about their land and culture.
Then it is time to fly over the vast savannah plains of the Masai Mara to stay at Samburu Mara, a small, boutique lodge. Encounter Africa's Big Five and, if you travel from July to October, the most remarkable natural spectacle on Earth; the Great Migration. Enjoy game drives, walks and bush meals.
Following your time in Kenya you will then move onto Tanzania where you will get a chance to take in Tarangire National Park and the Serengeti National Park, both 'must see' Northern Circuit safari destinations. With the great migration in full flow throughout the year we have used Legendary Serengeti Camp, mobile tented camp, to maximize your chances of being in the right place at the right time.
Conclude this epic safari with a stay at Little Chem Chem in the Tarangire region, where you will stay in luxury vintage tents, in unfenced territory, where animals move through the camp. Game drives on open safari vehicles offer unforgettable moments.
