East Africa delivers a classic Out of Africa safari with its rolling grasslands, rich diversity of wildlife, colourful Maasai and Samburu warriors, luxurious lodges and tented camps. Visitors are warmly welcomed and the infrastructure is excellent, especially the network of airports serving the far-flung reserves via the international air hubs of Nairobi and Dar es Salaam.
Combine Kenya and Tanzania for the ultimate East Africa safari. Fly in itineraries make the most of your time using the region’s air hubs, Nariobi and Dar es Salaam. Nairobi has several unmissable attractions of its own, especially Giraffe Manor and the Daphne Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage, both on our Top 5 animal encounters for families.
Kenya and Tanzania are primarily big game destinations and home to many of Africa’s legendary parks. Safari tours can easily blend Kenya’s Masai Mara and Amboseli reserves with Tanzania’s Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater. The wildebeest migration is the best reason for combining these two destinations. The migration starts in the southern Serengeti, moves through the central and western Serengeti, and into the Masai Mara. By combining Kenya and Tanzania, you’ll witness the spectacle of the mega-herds and enjoy Africa’s best crowd-free game viewing away from the main event.
