Nine Days Exploring Kenya & Tanzania

Few places inspire the feeling of the authentic safari experience better than the countries of Kenya and Tanzania. Often considered the birthplace of the African Safari, Kenya welcomes its visitors with unique wildlife experiences and stunning landscapes, making the experience here just as real and true as it was all those years ago. Spend three nights at Ol Donyo Lodge, in Kenya’s Chyulu Hills region, a place of timeless, wild beauty. Ol Donyo offers stunning accommodations, views of Africa’s highest peak, Mount Kilimanjaro, and is one of the last places on earth to see the iconic ‘big tusker’ elephants. Next you will travel to Tanzania, a country that truly has it all: the vast expanse of the Serengeti, world-class wildlife viewing, including Africa’s Big Five, and a unique and beautiful culture. Spend two nights each at two of the beautiful Singita Grumeti properties, some of Tanzania’s most luxurious accommodations. This pristine conservation area is the perfect opportunity to get up close to Africa’s incredible animals! After nine days in Africa, you will depart having experienced an authentic journey in one of the world’s most beautiful and fragile areas.
