Kenya and Tanzania: These storied names evoke a bygone era of safari romance and adventure—seas of golden grass swaying under a blue bowl of sky, great herds of migrating wildebeest and zebra traversing the savanna among rocky outcrops and lacy acacia trees, rhinos browsing on the plains, nights spent gazing into the flicker of a campfire under skies strewn with stars. In the Serengeti and Maasai Mara, behold the timeless drama of predator and prey, the circle of life, unfolding rhythmically on one of Earth’s last great wild stages. This experience of Africa at its most primal still exists and is waiting to be discovered once more on our ultimate Kenya and Tanzania safari. You'll find no more epic encounter with the wonders of East Africa, which seduce contemporary explorers as powerfully as they did their predecessors a century or more ago.

Traveler Profile: An African Safari Experience
The Great Migration

Our Ultimate East Africa Safari Stand Heads Above the Rest! 

If you’re making a once-in-a-lifetime trip to East Africa, keep these key elements of our Pride of East Africa safari in mind as you compare options. You won't find a superior safari that combines the best of Kenya and Tanzania.

  1. A Rare Secluded Experience, Away from Crowds
    There’s no question East Africa draws a lot of safari travelers. The abundant wildlife in the famous national parks of Kenya and Tanzania makes them duly popular destinations. That’s why we concentrate on private reserves where visitor numbers are strictly limited. We know you don't want to come all the way to East Africa to see a lion surrounded by 15 or 20 other safari vehicles. On the exclusive private conservancies we focus on, we'll be mostly alone with the animals.
  2. An Itinerary Designed Around the Migration
    Many companies operate the same standard “migration safari" circuit year-round, with no concern to time specific locations with the arrival of the herds. We focus on the best time to see the animals, then build our itineraries and dates around that, attempting to time our presence for peak viewing. An integral feature is our mobile base camps, strategically positioned for proximity to where wildlife is most prolific at that season.
  3. Exclusive Safari Activities on Private Reserves
    Most safaris stay within the main areas of the most popular national parks and reserves. In contrast, we choose remote small safari camps on private conservancies within the Maasai Mara and Serengeti ecosystems, away from big lodges and roads filled with vehicles. From these adjacent reserves, we have easy access to more remote sectors of the parks while also enjoying special privileges not allowed within their bounds, such as guided safari walks, off-road driving and night drives in search of nocturnal wildlife.
  4. Meet the World's Last Two White Rhinos & Witness Conservation in Action
    Located on the Laikipia Plateau in the shadow of Mount Kenya, Ol Pejeta is a working cattle ranch, which first set aside land for rhino conservation in 1988. Today this 90,000-acre preserve is the largest black rhino sanctuary in East Africa and home to Earth's last two northern white rhinos. Visit this pair of females with their guards, and learn about groundbreaking science that's being done to save their species.
  5. Small Groups Mean Better Wildlife Encounters
    We travel with a maximum of 12 guests. Many East African safaris take groups of 20 or more, packed into cramped mini-buses. Small groups mean we get closer to the herds, have better photo opportunities, and our experience is enriched by personalized interpretation from our Expedition Leaders as we watch the wildlife action side by side.
  6. Maximize Comfort & Time with Internal Flights 
    Many safari companies transport you to and from the bush by vehicle—meaning long, dusty drives over rough roads. We’ve included flights wherever possible, maximizing time for what you have come to East Africa for: wildlife viewing on safari.
  7. Count on a Window Seat & Plenty of Space in Our Chartered Vehicles
    We limit the number in each safari vehicle to maximize comfort, and every traveler has a window seat for unimpeded views and photography—this is not the case with every safari operator. 
  8. See More Wildlife While Staying Closest to the Crater 
    At the Ngorongoro Crater, we stay at an intimate camp on the crater rim at an exclusive location inside both park gates and closer to the crater floor than most accommodations in the area. This proximity allows easy access to wildlife viewing in the crater early in the day, before others arrive from farther away. And we can linger longer in the late afternoon, when wildlife becomes more active again, after most safari vehicles have started their ascent out of the crater in order to make it through both gates by dusk. 
  9. The World's Finest Safari Guides
    Natural Habitat Adventures is known worldwide for employing the finest naturalist guides on the planet. In Kenya and Tanzania, our own Expedition Leaders  are with our groups from beginning to end. They are among the most highly trained guides in Africa, averaging more than 15 years' guiding experience and dedicated to sharing exceptional knowledge and highly personalized service. Their training is further enhanced with resources from WWF’s top scientists. See Expedition Leader bios and traveler comments regarding the quality of our leaders.
