Tour Overview

Kenya and Tanzania are destinations without equal in the realm of safari travel, since both lay claim to several national reserves and wildlife parks that enjoy international acclaim for their scope, beauty and abounding nature. We get our fill of the remarkable natural environments of these two first-rate tour destinations with visits to world-famous conservation areas -- Ol Pejeta Conservancy and Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya; Ngorongoro Conservation Area and the place that has become synonymous with the term safari: Serengeti National Park in Tanzania -- wherein we see huge arrays of teeming wildlife and we balance exploration of nature with cultural discovery of East Africa. In parks and reserves, we see, to name but a few, lions, leopards, buffalo, cheetahs, elephants, giraffes, rhinos, hippos, plains game and hundreds of species of bird; we learn about and appreciate the man-made world by spending time in coffee and tea plantations, visiting museums, investigating archaeological excavation sites, stopping in at colonial villages and attending bustling bazaars. Ending our adventure on a high note, we head to the island paradise of Zanzibar to wander the winding alleys, see grand mosques and Arab houses and embark on a fascinating spice tour.

Our guide had to be one of AAs very best guides. Friendly and interested in the lives of his passengers, he took into account the needs of individuals without compromising the group. Would I travel with him again? In a heartbeat! The driver-guides were very knowledgeable. All of the game drives were highly enjoyable. Loved, loved, loved our balloon ride at Mara. This was an adventure of a lifetime and far exceeded my expectations for animal (and bird) viewing.

Our guide had an excellent knowledge of Kenyan and East Africa history and current affairs. A knowledge I appreciated. All our drivers were excellent however John NDICHU, our Kenyan driver was a real joy to have met. A wonderful personality and made a great effort to teach us the local language and customs. John also had a great knowledge of the plants and animals.
