14 Days/ 13 Nights Kenya & Tanzania Hemingway Flying Safari

14 Days/ 13 Nights Kenya & Tanzania Hemingway Flying Safari

14 Days/ 13 Nights Kenya & Tanzania Hemingway Flying Safari is an ingeniously crafted programme offering both Kenya and Tanzania in exactly two weeks away from home.


For travelers with a limited timeframe, yet who desire to see both countries, it is the ideal safari. The focus is on wildlife and the big herds, visiting four of East Africa’s most renowned game viewing areas: the Maasai Mara, Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti, and Lewa Downs.


Several flights make the programme as comfortable as it is comprehensive. Spend your days viewing game in 4x4 vehicles or on horseback. See the "Big Five" safari animals, as well as giraffe, wildebeest and others.


Each evening, gather around the campfire for cocktails and dinner, then retire to your exclusive accommodations and enjoy attentive service from your personal butler.

Day 3 Nairobi – Fly to Laikipia Plateau

Fly to the exclusive Laikipia Plateau and your private game conservancy at the foot of Mount Kenya. Located in the Northern Frontier District, Laikipia Plateau is home to a diverse array of wildlife in some of Kenya's most spectacular scenery.


The snow-capped peaks of Mount Kenya dominate the view to the south. To the north, the terrain drops away rapidly with breathtaking views of the Samburu Game Reserve.


After your first safari game drive, you return to camp where this evening, you enjoy a special welcome dinner and safari briefing hosted by African Spice Safaris.

For a completely unique perspective, enjoy game-viewing by horseback or search for nocturnal species on a night game drive.


All the big cats can also be found here, including leopard and lion. Gourmet meals, picnics and sundowners are served by your attentive staff in between game drives with your guide, who shares his knowledge of the bush and its myriad inhabitants.

Day 5 Laikipia – Fly Nairobi – Fly Arusha – Drive to Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania

Today you fly to Arusha via Nairobi. After stopping for lunch, board another flight to the Lake Manyara airstrip, where you continue overland to the Ngorongoro Crater Serena Lodge.


Ngorongoro Crater is the largest unbroken caldera in the world and its floor is home to a year-round population of wildlife. Dozens of animal species make their home here - with the notable exception of cheetah, chased out by the Crater's aggressive hyena population.


After settling in to your lodge, you spend the evening around the campfire; enjoy entertainment from the lodge stuff and listening to the sounds of the wildlife all around you.

Meal Plan {Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner}

Day 6 Ngorongoro Crater

This morning we descend 2,000 feet into the giant caldera of this extinct volcano. This magnificent natural amphitheater contains the largest concentration of animals in all of Africa. Prides of lion, black rhino and elephant share this land with the legendary Masai tribesmen.


Because the grasses are short, game is easily spotted and can be approached quite closely. We spend a splendid morning on the floor of the crater observing wildlife in this ageless World Heritage Site.


To avoid the hustle and bustle of the assigned picnic sites in Ngorongoro Crater, African Spice Safaris will host an Out of Africa gourmet barbecue lunch in a private site, set in yellow acacia woodland offering natural shade. Tonight, enjoy a private performance by Maasai dancers at your lodge.

Day 7 Ngorongoro Crater Serengeti National Park

The Serengeti National Park is our destination today. En route we stop at Olduvai Gorge, the “cradle of mankind,” where the Leakey family uncovered the fossil of Homo habilis, who lived 1.75 million years ago. Arriving at our lodge in time for lunch, we find ourselves deep in the heart of this famous migration corridor.


With its wide-open spaces, bright blue skies and creature-filled landscape, over the next two days we will discover why the fabled Serengeti typifies the dream of “Old Africa.”


Large prides of lions laze in the long grasses, plentiful families of elephants feed on acacia bark and trumpet to each other across the plains, while giraffes, gazelles, monkeys, eland and the whole range of African wildlife present themselves in awe-inspiring numbers.


Overnight at Serengeti Serena Lodge

Meal Plan {Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner}

Days 8 & 9 Serengeti National Park

Two Serengeti game viewing days. After breakfast this morning, enjoy a game drive. The great diversity of Serengeti wildlife is also evident here—look for buffalo, hippopotamus, elephant, giraffe, antelope, Thompson’s and Grant’s gazelle, lions, and in season the spectacular migration of the wildebeest.


In late afternoon we venture out in another game drive. Everywhere there are animals, monkeys and, yes, birds…but look closely and you will thrill to the huge jungle cats—lion, leopard and cheetah—just watching the world go by.


And go by it does. Rhino, gazelle, antelope and massive elephants by the hundreds. Animals in the trees, on the wing, camouflaged in the bush, in rivers and in streams. The adventure of a lifetime.

Day 10

Serengeti Fly Arusha Fly Nairobi Fly Masai Mara

We wing our way across the Great Plains to the Maasai Mara via Arusha and Nairobi. A game reserve shared with the Masai people, the Mara most certainly offers the finest game viewing in Kenya as well as the ideal location for an exhilarating Hot-Air Balloon Safari.


During our time in the Mara, we also visit a Maasai village in the company of an insightful tribal Elder. And, romance awaits in the form of an extraordinary sunset cocktail party in the bush overlooking the Great Rift Valley.


Our accommodations will also thrill in an exclusive tented camp: Mara Safari Club or Kichwa Tembo Camp

Meal Plan {Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner}

Days 11 & 12

Masai Mara

Spend two exciting days driving across the limitless plains in search of abundant game in one of Kenya's most spectacular areas. Running along the Tanzanian border, the Mara forms an essential part of the Serengeti ecosystem.


The annual migration draws more than one million wildebeest, accompanied by zebra and gazelle, to graze the Mara's lush grasses. In the Mara River, crocodile bask in the sun and hippo wallow in the muddy water as monkey frolic overhead. It seems as though the wildlife here is without limits.


The lion population in particular is very large. Elephant roam the forest edge, giraffe survey the plains and you drive through it all in vehicles that can take you up close in comfort and safety.


The spectacular Siria Escarpment is your backdrop for viewing lion, elephant, giraffe, zebra and a variety of gazelle species. On your final evening, join your fellow travelers for a special farewell dinner, the perfect opportunity to toast your journey and share your new memories.

Overnight at Mara Safari Club or Kichwa Tembo Camp
