About East Africa Combo

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 Maasai 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 flying safaris you travel with other guests on scheduled chartered flights. Resident guides at the camps and lodges conduct your game viewing activities.

We have several group departures where you drive from park to park and have the same guide throughout. Our guides are some of the best in the industry and constantly receive the highest accolades each year. Quality guides are one of our trademarks for 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. You will meet up with other people at the lodges and camps. Having a private guide optimizes your photographic time in the vehicle.

The variety of game-viewing activities is another hallmark of a safari to East Africa. Activities include game drives, guided walks, boating, hot air ballooning and even canoeing. Other than game-viewing you can visit the Maasai, the Rift Valley lakes, and the idyllic beaches.

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 culturally and historically rich countries of Ethiopia and Egypt.

One of the huge advantages to working with us is that we can customize any itinerary to your specific needs.
