Incorporating four amazing game reserves over ten exciting days this trip really does highlight the best of East Africa. You’ll see the very best safari locations that Kenya and Tanzania have to offer, exploring these iconic African destinations and meeting the friendly and welcoming locals along the way.
The Masai Mara is world renowned for sightings of the Big 5 (lion, rhino, elephant, leopard and buffalo) whereas Lake Nakuru is famous for its thousands of pink flamingos and healthy rhino populations. Across the border in Tanzania, the vast plains of the Serengeti support thousands of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle and the predators that follow in their wake, while the Ngorongoro Crater is packed with wildlife and offers sweeping views from its rim.
Our overland vehicles are custom built converted trucks that have seating space for our passengers and a storage area for luggage and all trip equipment. We carry all the equipment necessary for camping and cooking along the way.
The trucks seat up to 30 passengers on our camping trips. Most seats are forward facing, though some models have a combination of forward, backward and some inward facing seats with tables. Vehicles have sliding glass windows, and the seating area is raised providing a great advantage for game viewing and photography. Seats are cushioned and there is storage space for personal items like cameras, snacks and day packs in the seating area.
Participation on tour
This is a participation trip meaning that all passengers are expected to help out around camp. The crew members running the trip will set up a rota system that will be followed. One day you may be on cleaning duty, the next day you may be on cooking duty and so forth. This is not only to make the trip easier for all involved but also for you as the passengers to get to know one another while on trip.
Camping tours are adventurous in nature, we generally carry clients who enjoy being outdoors and don’t mind a little discomfort in exchange for seeing and doing a lot of activities in a short period of time. Our trips are all group tours so clients must be comfortable sharing their space and experiences with other like-minded travellers who are from various parts of the world.
Accommodation We spend each night in a secure campsite where you will be required to put up & down your own tent. There are a wide range of great campsites in Africa, many with activities, bars, restaurants and excellent facilities. Some campsites may not have a shower or a beer available, though most have running water - whether it is hot or cold, respectively, is another matter! Sometimes conditions can be challenging – it may be dusty or rainy, it can get exceedingly hot or very cold – come prepared for the respective season you’re travelling in and you’ll have little to worry about.
Meals Menus vary as food is purchased en-route, and is subject to produce that is available seasonally in the areas we travel through. As we support the local communities along the way, fresh produce is mostly purchased direct from the producer or local grower and therefore has an organic appearance. Our safari cooks are able to offer a wide variety of menus with the ingredients available
