Overview

Highlights

  • Strategically located your mobile serengeti camp provides an up close intimate experience of the great annual migration of more than a million wildebeest as they trek for fresh grazing pastures
  • Enjoy full board hospitality on each day in the serengeti, and a mini spa for luxury treatments between included open vehicle 4x4 game drives
  • When not spotting big cats on safari in the masai mara, choose from an excellent array of optional activities – nature walks, a maasai tribe village visit, and a breathtaking hot-air balloon ride over the park at dawn
  • Flying between destinations means you spend less time in transit and more time spotting wildlife and relaxing riverside

Short Description

Introducing a brand-new specialised safari adventure for lovers of African wildlife. Watch in awe as the annual migration of Wildebeest unravels along the acacia-dotted savannahs of Serengeti National Park and the great expanse of the Masai Mara National Reserve. Join six million hooves crossing the open plains, with more than 200,000 zebras, 300,000 Thomson’s gazelles and over a million wildebeest as they run a gauntlet full of predators. In downtime between safari adventures, relax and unwind in style, with luxury facilities in both locations.

Small groups are usually defined as between 10 and 24 travelers, often less. If you're the kind of person who enjoys more intimate experiences and personal service this is a good choice. All else being equal you will pay a premium for this style vs a larger group tour.

Itinerary

Day 1 Arusha

On arrival at Kilimanjaro or Arusha Airport you are met by your Peregrine representative, who will drive you to your hotel (approximately 1.5 hours). There will be a trip briefing at the hotel at around 6 pm this evening. The rest of the day will be at your leisure. Please note this is an arrival day and there are no excursions planned, so you may arrive at any time.

Day 2 Serengeti National Park

Head to Arusha Airport and catch your flight to Kogatende Airstrip. Travel on to the legendary Serengeti. After lunch on arrival, depart on a late afternoon game drive in the 4x4 safari vehicles. Your accommodation is the excellent Sanctuary Serengeti Migration Camp. This camp offers year-round migration viewing, as it continuously follows the famous wildebeest migration as it moves around the park. Generally the camp will be located in the Northern Serengeti from August to November. Each tent has an ensuite bathroom, indoor bucket shower, king size bed, hairdryer, mosquito net and in-room safe. There is also a lounge area perfect for afternoon relaxation, and a lounge bar where pre-dinner drinks are served (including soft drinks, house wines, local brand spirits and beers). Settle in and enjoy your first evening falling asleep to sounds of the African wild.

Day 3 Serengeti National Park

A typical day involves rising early for some breakfast, either continental or full English. Then it’s time for a morning game drive. Dawn is the ideal time of day for it – it’s not too hot yet and animals spring to activity. The camp should be in the perfect location to catch all the migration action up close. The game drives will be focused on seeing the migration as well many other animals enjoying the greener pastures and the predators that follow. Lunch is enjoyed at camp before an afternoon game drive which is usually at around 4 pm. Depending on wildlife activity, sometimes these morning and afternoon game drives will become a longer day-trip, in which case a packed breakfast and/or picnic lunch will be enjoyed out on safari. Dinner is typically at around 7:30 pm. (Both lunch and dinner are buffet-style with vegetarian options.)

Day 4 Serengeti National Park

Explore the wide open plains of the Serengeti on further game drives. Green after the rains, brown and burnt in the dry season, the Serengeti is home to thousands of hoofed animals and fierce predators. Flat and rolling, with long grass and acacia trees, these plains get their name from the Maasai word Siringet – 'The place where the land moves on forever'.

Day 5 Serengeti National Park

Enjoy a final day exploring the park. As well as the key species – lion, rhino, buffalo, elephant, leopard, zebra and wildebeest – look out for the others, such as cheetah, Thomson’s and Grant’s gazelle, topi, eland, waterbuck, hyena, baboon, impala, African wild dog, and giraffe. The park also hosts about 500 bird species, among them ostrich, secretary bird, crowned crane, marabou stork, martial eagle, and lovebirds.

Day 6 Masai Mara National Reserve

Fly to Masai Mara, using the Kichwa Tembo Airstrip. The Masai Mara Reserve is legendary for its abundance of wildlife, as well as being a stage for the great annual wildebeest migration. Settle into your comfortable accommodation at Sanctuary Olonana. Overlooking the Mara River, you are well located here, and a pod of hippos lives permanently in the river just below camp and many other species come to drink there. As well as a swimming pool and library, there are ensuite facilities with a double vanity and indoor shower. Facilities in all rooms include a room safe, mosquito nets and hairdryer. The main dining room and decking command views over a dramatic stretch of the river. Complimentary Wi-Fi is available. After lunch on arrival take a late afternoon game drive seeking a new migrational herd and the other animals that follow. Each afternoon game drives include sundowner cocktails and canapés at specially selected spots before returning to the camp for dinner. Back at the camp soft drinks, house wines, local brand spirits and beers are included.

Day 7 Masai Mara National Reserve

Enjoy morning and afternoon game drives in search of wildlife, taking time to stop, watch and photograph the sightings. In between game drives, there is the option of a Masaai Village visit. This gives you insight into the traditional way of life of the Maasai tribe. Learn about the medicinal plants that grow here, the importance of cattle and the stages of life through which all Maasai pass, from young boy or girl to respected elder. Accompanied by an experienced Maasai guide, you are invited to visit the village which is built along traditional lines; complete with cattle enclosure, outer palisade and mud and cow dung huts. Another option today is a nature walk. This is a chance to explore with a local naturalist and learn about plants, trees and insects and their use in the daily lives of the Maasai tribe.

Day 8 Masai Mara National Reserve

When not out on safari, why not relax in the mini spa and enjoy luxury treatments and healing essences derived from indigenous southern African plants, such as Rooibos, Aloe Ferox, Marula and African Potato). Also, a highly recommended optional activity while here is an early morning hot air balloon ride. Once aloft, you float gently over the plains and the plethora of game. After about one hour the balloon lands and, nearby, breakfast is already being prepared. Enjoy a breakfast of Kenyan fruits, bacon and eggs, and a glass of sparkling wine to toast your flight. Alternatively have the game come to you; relax on the deck overlooking the Mara river where the animals come to drink.

Day 9 Nairobi

Enjoy a final sunrise game drive to soak up the Masai Mara vistas, then sit down to a leisurely breakfast before departure. Fly from Kichwa Tembo airstrip to Wilson Airport, where you are met and transferred to either a Nairobi city hotel or Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. Note that it is important not to book onward flights out of Nairobi for any earlier than 6pm.

We arrived home last week following an 11 day tour with Peregrine Plus, Lima, The Sacred Valley and Lake Titikaka. It was amazing beyond all our expectations. Our private guide was a Peruvian local, English speaking, he was excellent great local knowledge and organised everything like clockwork. Our accommodation was brilliant we were treated like royalty, check out Hotel B in Lima, Sol Luna Urubamba and Hotel Belmond Monasterio in Cusco. Would highly recommend this tour and look forward to another experience with Peregrine in the future.

My first ever trip in smaller numbers - loved it, yes, loved it so much as we could do things that larger groups can not do. Ecuador, Peru including the Amazon region, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina, Brazil were awash with fantastic experiences with the stunning and majestic sights, the people and their culture, the food, animal and bird life and of course, what I accomplished by surprising myself at the Incan ruins. Our guides, Alejandro in Ecuador, Sally in Peru and Sabina in Chile, Argentina and Brazil were just the best Ambassadors for Peregrine as they showed such passion for their country and genuine care for each of our small number to return home with amazing memories to abide in our hearts forever. Muchas Gracias to each of you as you have touched my life with a very special imprint. I highly recommend this full trip for the entire 6 weeks just in case you have not noticed.

This trip was fabulous and it was made even better with the knowledge and expertise of our Spanish-speaking guide, Jorge Riofru. Jorge smoothed over all our difficulties and showed us the real Peru that is his homeland. He was able to ensure that my coeliac diet was catered for even when we were trekking to Machu Picchu! this trip was enhanced by the deep knowledge and love that Jorge has for his country. this has been one of the best trips ever.
