Next Journey | Kenya and Tanzania  SEP 14 - 30, 2021 | 17 Days | 40 Meals

No other area in the world offers the depth and breadth of game viewing that is found in Kenya and Tanzania. Here you will find a vast variety of landscapes and vegetation and with that comes the almost endless varieties of game – the “Big Five” (lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard, and White/Black rhinos), predators, plains animals, birdlife and much more. At every turn, you will find reserves and national parks….Maasai Mara, the Serengeti, vast areas set aside for the protection and nurturing of wildlife in their natural habitat…names which conjure up thrilling adventure and magnificent scenery! Viewing wildlife on their turf, from open safari vehicles as they go about their daily rituals, is a once-in-a-lifetime, awe-inspiring and mesmerizing experience.

One may think that to experience the amazing wildlife is the beginning and end to an East African safari, but they would be wrong. The wonderful lodges and luxurious camps, crafted over decades, provide an environment that virtually begs invitation. Each property used on this journey has been chosen for its uniqueness, comfort and to give our group members the opportunity to experience diversity in the various types of luxury lodging. An example is Sweetwaters Luxury Tented Camp, a sheltered oasis with tents featuring ensuite bathrooms with hot and cold running water, 24-hour hot showers and proper flushing WCs. All tents have canvas interiors, solid floors and separate thatched roofs….a charming blend of ambiance and Kenyan safari luxury. The lovely Mara Serena Lodge located in the world-renowned Maasai Mara National Reserve, is set high on a hill with long views over the savannah and down to the winding coils of the hippo-filled Mara River. The lodge stands centre-stage to one of Africa's most dramatic wildlife arenas. Accommodations at the lodges and camps are unique, comfortable and offer ringside seats at the greatest wildlife show on earth!

Throughout this adventure, you will meet the faces of East Africa today; welcoming villagers, happy children, busy farmers, proud warriors and the red-robed Maasai who will share with us their homes, culture and traditions. Professional, knowledgeable, charming guides, delicious cuisine, exceptional service and comfortable transportation are all an important part of our Kenya and Tanzania journey. It’s a fully inclusive adventure which, when you return home, you will surely rate as one of your ultimate travel experiences…a bucket list must! Reserve your space by March 31st and save $200 per person!
