This tour is ideal for those who want to experience Kenya and Tanzania’s top safari destinations and other highlights.

Begin in Nairobi, Kenya’s bustling capital, with a stay at one of the city’s most exclusive hotels. During flexible private touring, visit an elephant and rhino orphanage run by the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. Also visit the Karen Blixen House, where the writer of Out of Africa lived, and the Giraffe Centre to learn about and feed endangered Rothschild’s giraffes. Other touring options around Nairobi include participating in philanthropic activities and visiting local museums and crafts galleries.

Next, stay at a luxury lodge on a reserve bordering Chyulu Hills National Park, a beautiful volcanic mountain range with excellent views of Mount Kilimanjaro. Chyulu’s verdant knolls and golden sunrises are believed to have inspired Ernest Hemingway’s Green Hills of Africa. The region is in the path of elephant migrations and home to zebras, giraffes, buffaloes and other animals. Enjoy daily game drives, walking safaris, horseback riding, mountain biking and night drives. Artisans of Leisure can arrange other activities, including visits to local villages, excursions to nearby Amboseli National Park and scenic flights around Mount Kilimanjaro. An experience not to be missed is sleeping outside on a private rooftop “star bed” and waking up to the majestic sight of Mount Kilimanjaro at sunrise.

Continue to Maasai Mara National Reserve, Kenya’s most legendary safari destination, and stay at one of the most luxurious camps in the country. Maasai Mara is renowned for stunning scenery and abundant wildlife. It’s also a great place to witness the famed wildebeest migration (which also passes through the Serengeti in Tanzania). During unforgettable game drives, look for rhinos and other members of the Big Five—lions, leopards, elephants and Cape buffaloes—as well as cheetahs, zebras, giraffes, ostriches, hippos, crocodiles and various antelope species. If desired, enjoy a walking safari. Also visit a Maasai village to learn about the Maasai way of life.

Next visit spectacular Ngorongoro Crater, a wildlife-filled volcanic caldera that’s part of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area UNESCO World Heritage Site. Stay at a luxury lodge perched on the crater rim, and enjoy panoramic views and exciting game drives inside the crater to spot wildlife such as the Big Five and hippos. If desired, Artisans of Leisure can also arrange philanthropic activities or cultural touring in the area, including visits to Maasai villages, local markets, coffee plantations or Oldupai (Olduvai) Gorge.

End your tour in Singita Grumeti Reserves, a private game concession next to Serengeti National Park, and stay at one of the top luxury lodges in East Africa. The region is known for its abundant wildlife—including elephants, leopards and lions—and prime opportunities for viewing the wildebeest migration. Game drives on the private concession offer unfettered wildlife viewing without the crowds of the neighboring park. If desired, also enjoy walking safaris, sundowners in the bush and night game drives. There will also be plenty of time for spa treatments, gourmet meals, wine tasting, cooking classes, tennis, swimming, archery, stargazing, hiking to an anti-poaching outpost and visits to local villages.

Return to Arusha, where you will be met and assisted to your international departing flight.

Our East Africa tours include the very best safari guides and vehicles, and the most deluxe hotels and luxury safari lodges. Upon request, we can further customize each tour to include private charter flights and special experiences such as hot-air balloon rides, luxury mobile safaris, philanthropic activities, and special meals in the bush. This tour can also be incorporated into a multi-country tour that combines destinations elsewhere in Africa or Europe.
