Nairobi, Amboseli National Park, Loisaba Conservancy, Masai Mara National Park, Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, Arusha / East Africa SkySafari

Proving the number isn’t so unlucky, this 13 day itinerary showcases the best of two African giants – Kenya and Tanzania – in all of their biodiverse glory.

Spot the hazy silhouettes of wildlife in the Kenyan savannah, tuck into a gourmet picnic under the acacias of Ngorongoro Crater, and join a local Maasai community’s village rituals before a visit to a local Land & Life foundation funded school. SkySafari’s sole purpose is to elevate the humble safari beyond brilliant and into the realms of magical and downright unforgettable. Combining some of Tanzania and Kenya’s most luxurious camps, lodges and hotels with flying between each location in absolute comfort and style aboard their intimate, executive jet. 

Itinerary highlights:

  • Head out at dawn for photography game drives to see the animals when they are most active
  • Visit the headquarters of Loisaba Conservancy’s anti-poaching group and their important work
  • Learn rituals and the ways of Masai life on a visit to one of their villages
  • If timed right, watch the animals of the Great Migration from the doorstep of your lodge
  • Trace the history of the region through the prehistoric paintings on Lake Magadi’s rock formations
  • Picnic beneath the acacia trees on the edge of Ngorongoro Crater

Nairobi, Amboseli National Park, Loisaba Conservancy, Masai Mara National Park, Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, Arusha /Itinerary

East Africa SkySafari

12nights

Day /1

Arrive in Kenya

Touch down in Kenya’s capital, Nairobi, where skyscrapers tower over the national park plains. Hemingways provides refuge from the hubbub at the foot of Ngong Hills. Either rest within the grounds before a packed itinerary or start things as they mean to go on with visits to the Giraffe Centre, Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and Karen Blixen Museum. (HB)

Hemingways Nairobi

Day /2-3

Amboseli National Park

Amboseli National Park

With Mount Kilimanjaro as a backdrop, start the journey off in Amboseli National Park. As dawn breaks, set out with a camera in hand on morning game drives, the animals are at their most active then. And while the lions return from their night of hunting, sit down to enjoy your own breakfast in the bush. Come afternoon there’s a chance for even closer encounters of the bush walk kind, while dusk sees G&Ts sipped back at Elewana Tortilis Camp. (FI)

Day /4-5

Loisaba Conservancy

Loisaba Conservancy

After a morning game drive, it’s onto Loisaba Conservancy, Laikipia. Home to some rare endangered species (wild dog packs should be on the bucket list), they take their cutting-edge conservation very seriously here. Visit the headquarters to see the anti-poaching work first hand and find out how – along with some very clever sniffer dogs – they safeguard the wildlife. Exploring comes in some out-of-the-box forms too with the likes of horse-back bush riding, canyon rafting and camel trekking. (FI)

Elewana Loisaba Tented Camp

Day /6-7

Maasai Mara National Reserve

Maasai Mara National Reserve

The Maasai Mara is the Africa of your imagination; fauna-filled and reems of grasslands for miles. The 1920s-style tents of Elewana Sand River are basecamp for the two nights here, where herds of zebra and wildebeest cross the river beneath the verandas. Custom four-wheel-drives venture far out in search of plodding elephants and lions on the hunt, while the Maasai communities that own most of the Mara invite the inquisitive into their homes; teaching their rituals and showing children the ways of a Maasai warrior. (FI)

Elewana Sand River Masai Mara

Day /8-10

Serengeti National Park

Serengeti National Park

The private jet touches down in Tanzania for the remainder of the journey. First stop: Serengeti National Park. At 14,763 sq km, it’s not short of game viewing, the biggest opportunity being the Great Migration. If timed right, the spectacle of over a million animals crossing the rivers of the north will be delectably ingrained in the brains of everyone who witnesses it. If visiting out of migration hours though, there’s still plenty of animals about, like the flamboyant flamingos of Lake Magadi alongside some peculiar rock formations acting as canvas to prehistoric paintings. (FI)

Elewana Serengeti Migration Camp

Day /11-12

Lake Manyara & Ngorongoro Crater

Lake Manyara & Ngorongoro Crater

You’re already two game drives in by the time Elewana The Manor comes into view. Sitting pretty on the edge of Ngorongoro Crater, a detour through the surrounding coffee plantations comes before venturing to the crater’s base for a picnic among the acacia trees. Lake Manyara (a favourite of Ernest Hemingway) is also on the agenda where baboons bound from fig tree to fig tree on its banks. (FI)

Day /13

Arusha and return home

Fly to Arusha in preparation for your flight home, but it’s not quite over yet. Bid a fitting farewell with a walk among the coffee plantations and pause over one last cup of Kilimanjaro java, before heading to the airport for the flight home. (FI)
