Why You Should Be Wild for East Africa

July 29, 2015 East Africa Bush Tails

Looking for a safari experience that combines extraordinary wildlife viewing and traditional culture? Incredible natural background scenery with environmental stewardship and conservancy? An East Africa safari to Kenya and Tanzania for 10 days is enough time to blend incredible local cultural encounters with unparalleled experiences with the migration of hundred of thousands of wildebeest and zebras.


Companies like Asilia Africa are at the forefront of the conservation movement, and they had recently made the exciting announcement that they’ve joined with Encounter Mara to expand their stellar property offerings throughout East Africa, with special attention to Kenya.

Bas Hochstenbach, co-founder of Asilia Africa says on their blog: 

“Asilia has been instrumental in setting up the Maasai Mara Wildlife Conservancies Association. This is an important contributor to the long-term success of the conservancies through its presence in all three major Maasai Mara Conservancies: Mara North, Olare Orok / Motorogi, and Mara Naboisho. Asilia also provides major stability and a role in driving good governance in the conservancies…I am convinced that the unmatched quality of Kenyan safaris, with their great game, excellent guiding, diversity and range of experiences will inevitably bring Kenya back to the forefront of safaris!”

One of our favorite East Africa trips combines both the Serengeti and the Mara. This is big cat country and undoubtedly offers East Africa’s best cheetah, leopard and lion viewing opportunities.


To make visiting East Africa as easy as adjusting your binoculars, we’ve created an immersive adventure to Tanzania and Kenya that will enthrall both experienced and novice safari goers alike with all the wonders the two countries have to offer: The 14-Day Migration Safari to Tanzania and Kenya.


First, you’ll experience the beauty of iconic Ngorongoro Crater National Park for early morning and late afternoon photography, you’ll stay right on the rim of the crater. Travelers will of course have the services of AAC’s highest level of private guide and vehicle for this portion of the safari.


Next, you’ll continue on a flying safari to the Serengeti and stay in a premier tented camp, such as exclusive mobile seasonal camp Olakira, ideally located to view the “Great Migration” depending on the time of year you travel.


Finish in the Maasai Mara, at two camps; Rekero, at the confluence at the Mara and Talek rivers, andNaibosho, a new luxury tented camp on a 50,000 acre private game concession.


These camp resident guides possess an in depth knowledge of the areas you will visit and have built up an excellent camaraderie with our clients over the years. You’ll spend several days with the same guide, allowing you to maximize seeing and doing “everything.”
