Masai Mara - Nairobi. Heading out of the Masai Mara we travel back into the surrounding Masai Land area where we may still catch a glimpse of the game that has migrated into the this region. The Masai Mara National Reserve is unfenced and so it’s common to see some wildlife migrating through this ‘buffer’ zone. Departing in the morning, we reach Nairobi in the late afternoon.

On the morning of day 6 we visit the Meserani Reptile Park and Masai Cultural Museum before travelling via the Masai town of Mtu Wa Mbu (Mosquito River) that lies adjacent to the Lake Manyara National Park and then up the Rift Valley Escarpment to picturesque Karatu. Karatu offers magnificent views over the surrounding hills and has many well established wheat farms that add to the picturesque panoramas. Overnight - Meserani (1) Karatu (1) (B:1, L:2, D:2)
Karatu - Ngorongoro Crater - Serengeti. We depart early to reach Ngorongoro Crater, which is a vast and unbroken volcanic crater ring. Thanks to a permanent water and pasture source, the crater floor plays host to nearly every species of African animal. Zebra, buffalo, black rhino and wildebeest graze amongst the predatory lion, cheetah and hyena. After our game drive in the Crater, we head down the crater rim and past the ‘Cradle of mankind’ before we reach Serengeti National Park. Crossing vast plains we game drive through the southern and central areas of the park. Tonight we camp out in a campsite without fences, surrounded by the African wilderness!

Serengeti - Arusha. In the morning, we head off for another game drive and explore the landscape in search of the resident game. With some luck, we may see some of Africa’s ‘Big 5’! Following our morning drive, we retrace our journey back across the plains and along the lush Crater rim to our truck at Arusha, where we spend the evening musing over our thrilling wildlife experience Overnight - Arusha (B, L, D)
Day 9: Nairobi
Arusha - Nairobi. This morning we have some time to spend in Arusha before joining a shuttle bus transfer for the drive back to Kenya, and onto Nairobi, where our trip comes to an end on arrival in the city centre. Arrival into Nairobi is usually in the afternoon, but may be delayed by traffic or the border crossing so we recommend booking any onward travel for the following day. (B)
