When you close your eyes and you think of Africa, the rolling plains of the Serengeti, watching tribesmen like the Masai and natural beauty surrounding you with amazing game, this is East Africa! Kenya or Tanzania is always a good choice for a first time safarier as it is often what you have imagined over the years (and after watching documentaries like National Geographic and the Discovery Channel).
The featured combination programs to Kenya and Tanzania offer the best of both countries, some include both the Serengeti and the Masai Mara National Reserve (see Best Time to Go Chart), an exciting variety of accommodations, and options of flying safaris, private safaris or a combination of both.
On the flying safaris you travel with other guests on the scheduled flights and on the game activities with resident guides in the lodges and camps.
We have several group departures where you drive from park to park and have the same guide throughout. We are very territorial about our guides as they are the best in the industry and constantly receive the highest accolades each year – a trademark of our Africa Adventure Company safaris in Kenya and Tanzania.
We highly recommend that you consider making your safari private. This is more affordable than you think and it really makes the difference to having totally awesome game viewing experiences. You travel with your own guide and vehicle on your own schedule, and at the same time will meet up with other people at the lodges and camps. This may be to request a private vehicle at one or two of the camps only to optimize your photographic time in the vehicle. Or it can be for the whole safari.
The variety of game-viewing activities is what makes East Africa a great destination be it from a vehicle, on foot, by boat, hot air balloon and even canoe. Other than game-viewing you can visiting Masaii and other cultural villages, discover the Rift Valley lakes and the beaches on the Coast and neighboring islands.
Kenya and Tanzania are a great stepping stone for adventuring further, gorilla and chimp trekking in Uganda and Rwanda, the islands of Zanzibar and Seychelles, and even north to Ethiopia and Egypt.
One of the huge advantages to working with The Africa Adventure Company is that, based on two people traveling, we can customize any itinerary to your specific needs.
