Overview

The Best of Kenya & Tanzania – the big five & the great migration ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

Not sure whether to try and see the epic migration in Kenya or Tanzania? Well, what if we told you that you this curated itinerary solves that popular dilemma! A combination of both Masai Mara and the Serengeti is a perfect way to explore the Serengeti-Mara ecosystem and enjoy the best of both safari worlds. To make your journey even more magical, we will add a descent into Ngorongoro Crater, which is also home to all of the Big Five (buffalo, rhino, elephant, leopard, lion) and abundant resident wildlife.

To get a sense of our amazing tailor-made African safari experiences from all over Tanzania, please watch our short video.

When my friend and I booked our flights to Africa, we were sure we were going to plan the whole trip ourselves. Turns out that was a very overwhelming thing to even begin! So happy to have connected with Wito Africa Safaris, because not only did we get to do everything we set out to, we got so much more! A trip tailored to our wants and must dos, without any of the stress that comes with planning and not knowing what or who to book with and transfers to and from airports that we had never been to. It was the most amazing experience and not having to worry about the details made it that much more incredible. The most magical part of our trip was by far the Ngorongoro crater and the Serengeti. Words can’t describe how amazing it is! We also went to Zanzibar for the beach, Cape Town for the mountains (and wine!), Botswana for more animals and Zimbabwe for Victoria falls. If you’re considering booking a trip to Africa, don’t think, just do it! And planning with Wito Africa Safaris will make it a thousand times more relaxed and enjoyable:)

This trip has left me speechless. Tanzania will take your breath away the Serengeti is an absolutely magical place and the ngorongoro crater is an absolutely must!!. Abdullie planned a dream trip for us. Every detail was perfection and tailored exactly to the type of trip we wanted to have. The accommodations were beyond expectations. The communication with this company is top notch, Abdullie was readily available for any and all questions prior and during the trip. I would very highly recommend booking your trip to Tanzania with Wito!!!

Amazing experience! Abdullie from Wito Safaris organized the perfect trip for us and while doing so, stayed in close contact with us to listen to our wishes and explain the possibilities. We explicitly chose an Tanzanian organization and we were very happy with the outcome. All the lodges were excellent quality with very nice staff. Our guide was the best. We stayed together for 6 days, so you better get along! And we certainly did. He had great knowledge of the wildlife and their ecosystem, which really enhanced our enjoyment. We had a chance to see all the animals, from the big 5 to the small beautiful birds. And everything went smoothly, we had no worries whatsoever. Perfectly organized trip and truly a trip of a lifetime.

Our experience with Wito Africa Safaris could not have been more pleasant from the initial communication through the completion of the safari in Ngorongoro. Our driver was courteous, fun and most informative of the surrounding area, the history of the park, and of every species we saw inside the park and even on the fringe. The vehicle was comfortable and accommodated our group well; the lunch was delicious and even special dietary needs were met. All prearranged details were executed precisely. I would highly recommend Wito Africa Safaris.

We had an amazing experience climbing Kilimanjaro followed by a few days safari. For both elements of our trip the guides were knowledgeable and fun, and everything went smoothly and seamlessly.

Itinerary

Day 1, 2 & 3: andBEYOND BATELEAUR CAMP (THREE NIGHTS)

Welcome to Kenya! Upon arrival at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO) you will be warmly welcomed by a Wito Africa private transfer driver, who will take you to Wilson Airport to board a scheduled flight to the Masai Mara National Reserve. A private field guide and vehicle will meet and greet you when you land at the Kichwa Tembo private airstrip in Masai Mara and then take you on a gentle game drive on your way to your beautiful Bateleaur Camp for an overnight stay. After a brief orientation of your luxury camp, you will enjoy a scrumptious dinner. You will spend three unforgettable nights here, filled with spectacular resident and migratory wildlife. Take part in day and night game drives, followed by amazing sundowners around the campfire, while you feast your eyes on breathtaking views of the renowned Masai Mara. While you’re musing on this perfect African wilderness experience, you can interact with the legendary Maasai people and explore their fascinating culture.

Day 4, 5 & 6: andBEYOND SERENGETI UNDER CANVAS (THREE NIGHTS)

After a delicious breakfast, you will say goodbye to the Masai Mara with hearts and minds full of incredible memories, and board your scheduled flight to Migori. From Migori, you will take a road transfer to Isebania to clear customs (obtain a visa to Tanzania) and then continue to Tarime, where you will catch a quick scheduled flight to Serengeti. Your Wito Africa private guide will greet you at the airstrip and take you on a gentle game drive as you make your way to your luxury mobile camp (this mobile tented camp moves seasonally to be in the best location for migration viewing, all year round). A stay here offers a front row seat to the Great Wildebeest Migration. For the next three days, you will explore the resident wildlife and stunning landscapes, and venture to the river for a chance to witness the dramatic river crossing!

OPTIONAL – Why not take an unforgettable flight over the Serengeti in a hot air balloon!

Day 7 & 8: andBEYOND NGORONGORO CRATER LODGE (TWO NIGHTS)

After a leisurely breakfast, your Wito Africa private guide will transfer you to the airstrip in Serengeti for your scheduled flight to Lake Manyara. Upon arrival in Lake Manyara airstrip, you will be greeted by a Wito Africa private safari guide and vehicle and taken on a half-day game drive in Lake Manyara National Park. Enjoy a delicious picnic lunch and slow-paced game drive and exploration. Lake Manyara is famous for its tree-climbing lions, flamingos, breathtaking scenery and the soda-ash lake in the center. In the afternoon, transfer to the crater rim for sundowners, dinner and an overnight stay overlooking the spectacular wildlife bowl that is the Ngorongoro Crater.

The next day, after an early breakfast, you will descend with your private safari guide to the floor of the Ngorongoro Crater, where you will find spectacular scenery (arriving nice and early gives you the best chance of witnessing the predators returning from their overnight hunts) and game viewing in what has been described by UNESCO as the eighth wonder of the world. Ngorongoro is a collapsed volcano – an incredible natural amphitheater, 25 km across, and teeming with more than 30,000 protected animals, including all members of The Big Five. Depart from the lodge with a picnic so that you can maximize your time in the Crater. In the late afternoon, return to your lodge for sundowners and relaxation before your scrumptious dinner.

Day 9: KILIMANJARO & BEYOND (Optional – Day Room in ARUSHA)

Enjoy a leisurely breakfast at the Crater Lodge before your transfer to the Lake Manyara airstrip, where you will board your scheduled flight to Kilimanjaro International Airport. Upon arrival at JRO, gather your luggage and transit to your international flight departure.

NOTE – For late evening departure out of JRO, we will arrange a scheduled flight to Arusha Airport from Lake Manyara. You will also have access to a day room in Arusha, where you can relax and rejuvenate before you are transferred by road to Kilimanjaro International Airport.

FAQs

What is the best month to go on an African safari?
The classic time to visit Tanzania is during the main dry season, from June to October, when good weather conditions can be expected across the country and wildlife viewing should be spectacular.

Another major highlight is the migration calving season in Serengeti (December – March), which coincides with good trekking conditions on Kilimanjaro and fair weather down on the coast, too.
Where does the tour start and end?
This private safari experience starts in Kenya at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO) and ends in Tanzania at the Kilimanjaro International Airport.

Our private safari guide and vehicle will meet and greet you upon arrival, and they will transfer you back to the airport on your last day of your safari experience with us.
Do you arrange airport transfers?
Airport transfers are included in the price of this private safari experience. In this case our private safari guide/representative and vehicle will be at the airport to meet & greet you upon arrival. When you arrive at the airport, please proceed to the arrival areas and look for a sign with your last name written on it.
How much does African safari cost?
Your total cost will vary depending on seasonality, size of group and specific travel arrangements, but this is a good guideline for an all-inclusive safari (everything except international flights):

$499 USD per person per day for 3-star accommodation
$699 USD pp per day for 4-star
$999+ USD pp per day for 5-star

It’s worth noting that, depending on your itinerary, your lodge cost will make up about 75–85% of your total safari trip cost. Our rates are per person sharing unless stated otherwise. Single supplements may apply. Accommodation are subject to availability.
