The perfect way to experience African wildlife.

Recommend: Yes
This is a luxury small group safari. 12 people, two land rovers. We spent the arrival night in a hotel in Arusha, two of the nights during the safari in hotels, and the rest of the nights in the luxury camp. The hotels were all good. The food was good, not great. The luxury camp is a two room canvas tent containing a queen size bed or two doubles. then there is a dressing area leading to the "bathroom" which is a toilet seat on a box over a hole in the ground. There is a shower stall in which they fill a canvas bag with hot water from the fire. They will not begrudge you a refill if you want to take your time. The day starts early in the dining tent with breakfast. then it is off to the land rovers to begin the safari. The guides from all the different safari's communicate to share where the most sought after animals are to be found. You will absolutely be up close and personal with lions, elephants, giraffes, monkeys, wildebeest, ostrich, zebra, hyrax, and the bird life. You will also see Water buffallo and hippos, but is best not to get close to them. and you will see plenty of Cheetah and some Rhinos, but usually from afar.

Lunch is usually conducted picnic style in the park. Our A&K picnics were the envy of every other group. Then it is touring until sunset.

When you get back to camp there is a camp fire going and the head guide will present a lecture, while everyone enjoys some much needed libations, of which there is great variety and unlimited quantity. Then dinner in the dining tent, and after dinner back to the campfire for more libations, and usually to review everyone's pictures from that day.

The guides are extremely knowledgeable and friendly. You will actually miss them on your last day. I had a great time and heartily recommend this safari and A&K.

The best part is being inside the game park all day and night. You really dont want to be going back to a hotel, but to stay out in nature.

Some tips: There is a generator in the camp so you may recharge your electrical items every day. They can also launder your clothes. Things to bring: plenty of strong repellent to deter the horse flies, do not skimp on memory cards for your camera, be sure to have a telescopic lens for your camera, a good pair of binoculars with good magnification, a flashlight, a device to view your photos on, a device to copy your photos onto. Dont forget a sweater, its cold at Ngorongoro Crater. For your digestive happiness, I had good results taking probiotic and charcoal capsules every day.

Amazing safari!

September 2016
Recommend: Yes
Just sitting in the Nairobi airport after an amazing A&K Safari in Kenya and Tanzania. This experience far exceeded my expectations. The guides were warm, knowledgable, and passionate. and Frankly I teared up a bit when saying goodbye to our Kenya guide, Peter, before heading to the airport. Dr Cornelius, our Tanzania guide, is a veterinarian - he knows the animals outside AND in (he's treated giraffes!). Every hotel was filled with friendly staff. Ever day was filled with surprises. We saw over 10 days seven leopards AND a rhino - some of the most elusive animals. We saw baby hyenas from a few yards away playing. We saw a lion carrying her cub in we mouth. The list goes on. Our guides were diligent and determined to find what we hoped to see. A&K makes this experience even better - you really don't have to think about anything except what time we are leaving in the morning or meeting for dinner at night. Customer service at its best - they live up to their reputation!

Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive Cape Town, South Africa

Accommodation: One&Only Cape Town

Arrive in Cape Town, a breathtaking harbor city where old and new converge in history, architecture, cultural pursuits and the essence of its people. Warmed by the African sun, the city is dominated by the towering, flat-topped Table Mountain, set on a peninsula of rocky heights and lush valleys. An A&K representative transfers you to your luxurious hotel on the fashionable Victoria & Alfred Waterfront.

Day 2: Cape Town | Table Mountain and Historic City Sights

Meals: Breakfast and Dinner

Accommodation: One&Only Cape Town

Wind your way through the scenic, shrub-dotted landscape to Table Mountain; ascend to its sky-high plateau by cable car (weather permitting) for dazzling views of city and sea. Next, venture to old Cape Town with views of notable buildings, including Groote Kerk (South Africa’s oldest church), City Hall and the Grand Parade. Continue to the pentagonal Castle of Good Hope. Built by the Dutch East India Company as a maritime refreshment station, it later became the center of military life in the cape. Make a last stop at Streetwires for an artisan visit, where locals come together to craft unique, handmade wire and bead art, now successfully exported to over 15 countries worldwide. Your afternoon is at leisure before your welcome dinner tonight, where the resident chef or sommelier guides you through a progressive, contemporary feast.

Day 3: Cape Town | Spectacular Views from Cape Point

Meals: Breakfast and Lunch

Accommodation: One&Only Cape Town  

Discover Cape Point, the mountainous and scenic promontory at the southwestern tip of the continent. Embark on a journey past the “bikini beaches” at the base of the towering Twelve Apostles Mountains, bucolic Hout Bay with its bustling fishing harbor and over the famous Chapman’s Peak Drive. Explore the stunning Cape Peninsula and Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve, home to rare bonteboks, chacma baboons and several endemic plant species not found elsewhere. Ride the “Flying Dutchman” funicular to the great pinnacle at blustery Cape Point, which presides over treacherous reefs, sandy beaches and, from July to November, breathtaking views of Southern right whales. At Boulders Beach, visit its colony of endangered African penguins; accustomed to humans, they provide endless photo opportunities. You also visit Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden alongside a private local guide. Spend the remainder of your evening at leisure, enjoying your hotel, exploring the city’s harborfront and boutique shops, or dining in one of Cape Town’s world-class restaurants.

Day 4: Greater Kruger Area | Private Game Reserves

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Accommodation: Lion Sands River Lodge / andBeyond Ngala Safari Lodge  

Fly to either the Lion Sands River Lodge located in Sabi Sands Game Reserve or andBeyond Ngala Safari Lodge located in Timbavati Game Reserve. Both of these wildlife-rich properties are privately owned and each reserve borders Kruger National Park to offer you the very finest game-viewing safari experience. Lion Sands River Lodge lies on the banks of the Sabie River, where trees date back 800 years. Facing due east, the lodge catches the sun as it rises over Kruger National Park. Hosted by the fourth generation of a family that makes it feel like home away from home, it embodies spirit, warmth and nature. andBeyond Ngala Safari Lodge offers a timeless, unhurried atmosphere, combined with the quaint traditions of a bygone era. The romance and mystery of Africa comes alive in its 20 thatched cottages tucked under a dense canopy of tamboti trees. This afternoon, once you are settled into your comfortable accommodations, set off in search of the “Big Five” — elephant, lion, rhino, buffalo and leopard — and other wildlife.

Days 5-6: Greater Kruger Area | Sighting Africa’s “Big Five”

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Accommodation: Lion Sands River Lodge / and Beyond Ngala Safari Lodge  

Spend two days immersed in your private game reserve. Embark on game drives in open safari vehicles for optimum viewing and go on early-morning game walks with your ranger. This region is one of the finest in Africa for high densities of wildlife, which often appear just steps in front of you. As you explore, learn about the flora and fauna as well as basic tracking skills. In between safari activities, participate in an A&K Chef’s Table culinary experience, preparing a traditional South African stew. At dusk, stop for a sundowner, and then search for nocturnal animals before returning to your lodge for dinner.

Day 7: Victoria Falls | Beside “The Smoke that Thunders”

Meals: Breakfast and Dinner

Today, fly to Livingstone, Zambia, and then transfer to your hotel in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe — an original Edwardian colonial hotel that delivers the elegance of old-world travel in modern, luxurious style.
