Overview

Small-group East Africa lodge safari through Tanzania and Kenya, starting and ending in Arusha – 15 Days


Tour Highlights

Lake Manyara National Park – The major landmark of the Lake Manyara National Park is actually the spectacular rift wall, where the plains give way to the cultivated uplands of Mbululand. The Great Rift Valley is part of a fault in the earth’s crust. This fault stretches 8,000 km from Turkey to the mouth of the Zambezi River in Mozambique.

Ngorongoro Crater – The Crater belongs to the Crater Highlands, with vast plains and stretches of bush and woodland areas – creating complex and interrelated ecosystems. The entire Ngorongoro Conservation Area covers about 8300 km2 and next to the famous Crater is the Olduvai Gorge – an area were many fossils have been unearthed.

The Wildebeest Migration – Over 2,000,000 wildebeest migrate annually in East Africa from Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park to the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya.

Lake Victoria –  Africa’s largest lake by area, and is also the largest tropical lake in the world.

Nairobi – Nairobi is the Capital of Kenya and here you will be able to enjoy the culture and vibrancy of this popular city! It’s worth visiting the National Museum – it offers a good introduction to Kenya, and the cool, peaceful interiors will give relief from the hot, busy streets outside. As you walk quietly around, you’ll see displays of fossils, tribal artefacts, and a bird gallery with more than 900 stuffed and mounted specimens.

Amboseli National Park – The most attractive aspect of Amboseli is its distinctive terrain – dry lake beds amongst oases of swamps offer travellers the most amazing Kenyan contrasts. There are quite a few roads that run through the Amboseli National Park that travellers can drive along while taking pleasure in some amazing game viewing!

The vehicles are fully air-conditioned and equipped with pop-up roofs to facilitate the best game viewing. All luggage, besides hand luggage and photo equipment, is carried on the vehicle roof rack or trailer to ensure maximum comfort in the vehicle.


Travel Times and Distance: All travelling times are affected by road conditions, border crossings, detours and weather conditions, therefore on certain days travelling times may be longer than anticipated especially where there is a lot of distance to be covered. Please keep in mind that the time it takes to travel 100 km in your home country is not equivalent to the time it takes to travel 100 km on African roads, therefore we encourage you to sit back and enjoy the spectacular scenery Africa has to offer. Where possible additional stops will be made to ensure your travelling comfort at all times.


Meals: Breakfast and dinner will be prepared by the lodge where you are staying. They will also prepare lunch or a lunch pack depending on the itinerary for the day. Please advise us of any special dietary requirements in advance.


Visas: The onus is on the client to organize all visas required for a visit to Tanzania and Kenya prior to departure.

  1. Jim and Phyllis Conran

    Dear Johan: Jambo! My wife and I had the pleasure of meeting you twice while we were on the East African Migration Safari (7-16 – 7/30). Once was at the wonderful disabled children’s school and the other at lunch in Arusha. The safari was part of a month long trip we booked with Jenman. We also visited Kigali, Kampala, Zanzibar and Victoria Falls. We had a wonderful time and I wanted to give you some direct feedback which I hope you find of value.

    First and most important we always felt safe and that safety was always the primary concern of your field staff. We had Charmy and Raymond as our travel team leaders. They were perfect. Raymond was a safe driver and always extremely courteous to each person on the safari. Charmy is just plain old charming. He was able to answer any question directed to him about the wildlife, fauna and customs of the local people. He has a great sense of humor and was able to keep our group on time, entertained and informed. We would love to travel with them again. Please extend our appreciation to them both.

    Alex was also super. He helped set the expectations when we had our first group meeting. He visited us a few times during the safari just to make sure we were all doing well. One evening, my wife and I were staying at a different campsite than our fellow travelers. We were the first Jenman guests to stay at the Kenzan Wildlife Safaris new permanent camp (more about that in a bit). He drove from Arusha to have dinner with us just to make sure we were happy and well-taken care of which was very thoughtful and appreciated. He was with you when we saw you again at the children’s center and lunch. Again we felt well cared for.

    I realize there are members of your staff who we did not meet or communicate with directly, but all the arrangements were great. When we traveled alone after the safari we were ALWAYS met on time and were well cared for by your subcontractors. We loved our trip which was for our 30th wedding anniversary. Please extend our thanks to all the planners who made the trip successful.
    I wished we could have stayed at both places longer.

    It is hard to express how incredible the wildlife is at the crater, Serengeti and Masai Mara. We will always remember this trip and we definitely think we got our money’s worth. If you should see Chantal, please tell her Jim and Phyllis from San Francisco send our best. She was a great guide for our previous trip and because of her we chose Jenman for this one.

    Asante to you and all of your staff for their efforts.
