Itinerary

Day 1: A Suburban Start

Arrive at Nairobi’s International Airport & transfer to Hemingways Nairobi for 1 night on a bed & breakfast basis.

A night at Nairobi’s highly-rated Hemingways ensures you begin this safari fully restored after a long international flight. The luxurious boutique hotel lies in a quiet suburb of Kenya’s capital with the Karen Blixen Museum, Giraffe Centre and Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage all nearby. Highly recommended is a trip to the Giraffe Centre for an up-close introduction to Africa’s big animals. Back at the hotel, cuisine from the hotel’s Michelin-starred chef, Barry Tonks, means an indulgent close to the end of the day.

Days 2 – 4: Land of Big Cats

Fly to the Masai Mara & Rekero Camp for 3 nights on safari on a full board basis. Morning & afternoon game dries.

Your destination is an area of the Masai Mara famed for its predators and if you are here from late July to November, you’ll see why: the wildebeest are here in their hundreds of thousands, providing targets for big cats, hyenas and wild dogs. Rekero Camp is a seasonal one, moving in time with the migration but if you don’t catch the migration here, you’ll find the herds in the Serengeti. And the Masai Mara remains excellent for game viewing all year round; game drives take you into the heart of it all.

Days 5 – 6: Into the Serengeti

Fly to Sayari camp in Tanzania’s northern Serengeti for 2 nights on a full board basis. Guided walks plus morning & afternoon game dries.

Open during the migration season, Sayari Camp is a classic tented affair, its suites complete with wide verandas & private bathrooms. Lying on the path of migrating herds, the camp is well situated for dramatic game drives and has something of a reputation for big cats. It’s also set in a private concession, allowing your guide to lead nature walks, introducing you to the often overlooked details of the savannah. Back at camp there’s a pool, wellness spa and even a Kids Club for families on safari.

Days 7 – 8: Take to the Sky

Transfer to the central Serengeti & check in at Dunia Camp for 2 nights on a full board basis. Game drives & optional hot-air balloon safaris.

Located to catch the wildebeest migration in May/June and November/December, Dunia Camp offers excellent year-round game viewing in the central and southern Serengeti. You’ll enjoy morning and afternoon game drives with sharp-eyed guides; many guests round things off with a sunrise balloon safari, your chance to sail over the Serengeti. There are only eight tents at Dunia, each elegantly furnished and with en suite bathrooms and spacious veranda.

Days 9 – 10: A Highland Safari

Transfer to the Highlands Ngorongoro, set close to the Ngorongoro Crater for 2 nights on a full board basis.

The Ngorongoro Highlands are home to one of Africa’s best game viewing destinations: the Ngorongoro Crater. From your base on the slopes of an extinct volcano, you’ll head off on a full-day safari into the crater, home to Africa’s famous Big 5 – lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino. You may even see all five of them in a day, though the general game viewing is just as captivating. You’ll have time to visit other places too, following herdsmen’s paths to a dazzling soda lake or the rim of an ancient volcanic crater. Your tented suite comes complete with fireplace to ward off the upland chill.

Day 11: The Journey Ends

Transfer to the airstrip for your connecting flight & onward travel arrangements.

After breakfast and farewells you will transfer to the local airstrip for a flight to your next destination and an end to the tour. Ask us if you’d like to add on a few days on a tropical beach – Zanzibar and the sparkling Indian Ocean coast are a short flight away.

Reviews

It was a safari of a lifetime and exceeded all of our expectations!

I have so many wonderful things to say about Walter and Safari Online that I don’t even know where to begin! Our mom grew up in Central and South Africa so we had visited the continent many times. My sister and I wanted to take our teens and husbands to Africa to experience the magic. We had a limited budget but big and specific expectations and by some miracle Walter was able to manage both.

Professional, quick and top of the edge service!!!

From the very first contact we’re very happy about the respond time and quality of information from safari-online.com. Based on the received first tailor-made quote, which is a weblink with all the details about the flights, photos of the lodges etc. we knew that this is “our” partner for this trip.
Our expectations were exceled!!! We’ve been to three different Wilderness lodges in Botswana and Zambia. It was more than WOW.
The lodges itself, the service, the food, the kids (8+10) care and the animal world. All the connections by plane, boat and car were perfectly organized. There was always a responsible person waiting for us. We felt very special from the first to the last day. We highly recommend safari-online.com and we’ll do our next Wilderness tour definitely with them.

Safari Online were extremely efficient and absolutely charming to work with.

I have a severe intolerance to chemical products such a fabric softener. This can create difficulties when you travel. But the team at Safari Online made sure that all the destinations on our itinerary met our unusual demands. Our 28-day itinerary took us to South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Botswana. A magnificent and unforgettable adventure. Everything ran smoothly and efficiently from the flights, transfers, rides, connections, etc. Absolutely wonderful! Can’t thank them enough!

An incredibly well organised tour with no hassles whatsoever.

Safari Online understood our needs and was able to present us with sensible options to choose from. It was evident that this tour operator has knowledgable and experienced agents who can arrange a seemless tour. We were provided with a professional online itinary which was comprehensive and easy to use, knew exactely what to expect, and encountered no stumble blocks along the way.

Karina was absolutely instrumental to our safari success.

Our experience with Safari Online was excellent. After becoming very frustrated trying to search for a safari destination on our own, we turned to Karina for help and she was a lifesaver. She responded to our requests promptly and gave us several options with links to each option; we ultimately chose Lukimbi. We had an amazing safari adventure at the lodge–the experience of a lifetime–and are so grateful for her help. We literally couldn’t have done it without her!

Chris (USA)
Best trip I have ever been on. Highly recommend.

Would highly recommend. Safari online asked questions when booking and were efficient and knew exactly what we were looking for in terms of accommodation and animals were wanted to see. Actually got to see the Big 5 which was perfect. Gave advice on a few little extras with no pressure, which we did and am very grateful which make trip even more exciting. Would definitely recommend booking with them.

Professional, patient, efficient and responsive. Met all our travel needs and requirements spot on

Communication was excellent – I asked A LOT of questions and did a ton of research myself and Walter was extremely patient with me and very responsive. he was straight forward and extremely professional. Tour itself was excellent – an incredible experience and one never to be forgotten. Everything was spot on.

Safari Online made our fantastic family holiday dream come true!!

Safari Online have been nothing but professional and incredible from the time we made our first enquiry to the last day of our stunning holiday. Nothing was too much trouble for Walter. We are now starting to plan our next family Safari for 2019. Guess who we will be booking with??? Safari Online we hope you are ready!!!!!

Walter has always been an excellent communicator and has supported us fully

We have been to Africa for 24 of the last 27 years so know a bit about what is involved.
Walter has arranged the details for the last couple of years, and has done a superb job. He is always quick to respond and comes up with answers immediately……..no evasive tactics, always head-on! This year we went back to Luangwa and had a terrific six days there. It was very dry so a slightly different environment than in past years when we have found October to be more conducive to wildlife viewing. Walter couldn’t have done more for us!
