Highlights of the East Africa Migration Discoverer
Nairobi is the Capital of Kenya and is also known as the social hub of Africa. Street markets and shops can be found all around this energetic city and discovered on day one after you arrive. Nairobi also has a thriving thriving nightlife for those wanting some action.
Amboseli National Park
The most attractive aspect of Amboseli is its distinctive terrain. There are dry lake beds amongst oases of swamps and these offer travellers the most amazing contrasts whilst on safari in Kenya. There is a good infrastructure of roads to explore in the 400 square kilometer Amboseli National Park and plenty of game with over 80 mammal species.
Hike to waterfalls located in the lush landscape at the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro. This town is famous as the main gateway to climb Kili and hiking in the region is spectacular.
Visit the bustling safari town of Arusha which acts as a gateway to Tanzania’s national parks. It’s full of great restaurants and of course some excellent local curio markets.
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 in East Africa 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. It is so massive that astronauts can see it clearly from space.
Mto wa Mbu Village
During a cultural visit to this colourful town, engage with a variety of cultures and enjoy a traditional lunch at a local restaurant.
Enjoy an eye opening experience during a visit to a Maasai Boma. You’ll have the chance to learn the customs and traditions of this mesmerising and distinctive tribe. They are one of the most iconic and easily recognizable ethnic groups of East Africa.
Tarangire National Park
The 6th largest national park in Tanzania, Tarangire National Park is host to massive herds of elephant, wildebeest and zebra. Spend a full day exploring the wonder of the region by game drive, on the Tanzania section of your safari to East Africa.
The entire Ngorongoro Conservation Area covers about 8300 square kilometres and next to the famous Crater is the Olduvai Gorge – an area were many fossils have been unearthed. The Ngorongoro Crater has the perfect mix of safari animals, stunning scenery and fascinating history. Enjoy mesmerising game drives in the Ngorongoro Crater that are included in this safari package.
Serengeti National Park
Truly an iconic park, the Serengeti’s abundance of wildlife has numbers estimated at well over 3 million. Spend two days exploring the great plains, home to the largest annual animal migration – every year, over 2 000 000 wildebeest migrate from the Serengeti to the Masai Mara Reserve in Kenya.
Did you know that Lake Victoria is Africa’s largest lake by area? It is also the largest tropical lake in the world. Enjoy the opportunity to stay on its shores and take a boat trip to one of the local fishing villages.
Masai Mara National Reserve
One of the world’s premium wildlife destinations, the Masai Mara was named after the Maasai tribe who live within this protected park. The Maasai people, who are nomadic traditional herders, are permitted to graze their cattle in this area of Kenya. This area is home to a great variety of game including lion, leopard, cheetah, zebra, wildebeest (gnu), giraffe, buffalo, jackal, topi, gazelle, impala and elephant. Hippopotamus and crocodile are plentiful in the rivers here, and the bird life is also abundant.

Travelling Times and Distances
All travelling times in Kenya and Tanzania 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 great 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.
Most breakfasts and dinners on the East Africa Migration Discoverer will be enjoyed in the restaurants of the various accommodation establishments. Lunch packs are provided for driving days and excursions. Alternatively, the guide will prepare lunch en-route. Please advise us of any special dietary requirements in advance.
