East Africa Private Safari

11 Day Package from Nairobi to Arusha

Leave the ordinary at home and get ready for the extraordinary! An African safari is truly a once-in-a-lifetime vacation and Monograms is here to ensure that the only wild part of your vacation is an encounter with the endangered species. We arrange your choice of accommodations, transportation between destinations, game drives, and most meals for you. You will have a professional Driver/Guide throughout your safari to help you spot game and to teach you all about Africa’s wildlife. And for your convenience, the vehicles we use feature a pop-up roof to help make your experience as up-close and personal as it can be!

Your 11-day private safari begins in Nairobi. We can pick you up at the airport and help you manage the hassle of getting to your hotel. The next day, after an included breakfast, grab your gear and head off on your safari! Throughout the next ten days, you will visit some of the world’s most famous game areas. Highlights include Maasai Mara National Reserve and Serengeti National Park, part of the Serengeti ecosystem, home to the annual wildebeest migration. We’ve arranged for you to have three game drives in the “Mara” and three in the Serengeti where you’ll have the chance to see the “Big 5”—lion, leopard, Cape buffalo, elephant, and rhino. Be on the lookout for an abundance of other animals, including cheetah, giraffe, gazelle, elephant, hyena, and more.

You’ll also explore several other areas including Amboseli National Park, for stunning views of the highest mountain in Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro; Lake Manyara National Park, where the diverse terrain attracts everything from elephants and giraffes, to Cape buffalo and the world’s largest concentration of baboon; and Ngorongoro Crater, which is unique in that it serves as a year-round home for many animals, including lion, hippo, and the rare black rhino.

On the last day of your stay, we have reserved a day room for you to relax and reflect on this unforgettable vacation! From the game drives to the accommodations, transportation to a private vehicle and professional guide, the only thing that is left for you to do is click away on that camera of yours! We guarantee you’ll leave Africa with photos and stories to last a lifetime. So if you want to plan a safari, do it the right way and don’t plan it at all – let Monograms plan it for you.

FEATURED HIGHLIGHT

This private safari package brings you the best of Kenya & Tanzania with 11 game drives, including a full-day in Ngorongoro Crater which many refer to as the Africa’s “Garden of Eden” or the “Eighth Wonder of the World.”

DAY
1
Arrive in Nairobi, Kenya

Welcome to Africa! Hotel rooms are available for mid-afternoon check-in.

DAY
2
Nairobi–Maasai Mara National Reserve Area

Today, drive to MAASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE, Kenya’s most famous game area. Stop for lunch en route before embarking on your first GAME DRIVE in search of the “Big 5”—lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and Cape buffalo.

DAY
3
Maasai Mara

Today, your Driver/Guide pilots you on MORNING & AFTERNOON GAME DRIVES in the “Mara,” as it is called by the locals. Part of the Serengeti ecosystem, it boasts a strong permanent population of game. When the Great Migration of wildebeest and zebra arrives, generally between August and early November, the population enlarges by almost 2 million. This provides a great food source for predators such as lion, cheetah, leopard, and hyena. Between game drives, take advantage of leisure time to relax.

NOTE:
The Great Migration is a natural event, and the arrival/departure of the migrating herds varies slightly year to year.

DAY
4
Maasai Mara Area–Nairobi–Amboseli National Park Area

After breakfast, board a plane for the quick flight to Nairobi. After a short break, drive to AMBOSELI NATIONAL PARK, best known for spectacular views of Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa at some 19,341 feet. Embark on an AFTERNOON GAME DRIVE before settling in at your lodge or camp.

DAY
5
Amboseli Area

Today features MORNING & AFTERNOON GAME DRIVES. Amboseli offers you a great opportunity to get close to the mighty elephant. You might also spot Cape buffalo, zebra, wild dog, and more. Relax between game drives.

DAY
6
Amboseli Area–Arusha, Tanzania–Lake Manyara National Park Area

This morning, cross the border into Tanzania. After lunch in Arusha, proceed to your lodge along the rim of the Great Rift Valley escarpment. Check-in and enjoy some leisure time prior to dinner.

DAY
7
Lake Manyara Area–Ngorongoro Conservation Area

After breakfast, embark on a MORNING GAME DRIVE in LAKE MANYARA NATIONAL PARK. This small park is ecologically diverse, with groundwater forests, grassy plains, and alkaline Lake Manyara itself. Watch for elephant, Cape buffalo, giraffe, and more. The park is also home to the world’s largest concentration of baboon. Then, drive to beautiful Gibb’s Farm for a relaxing lunch featuring sumptuous farm-to-table cuisine. Afterward, continue to the NGORONGORO CONSERVATION AREA for the night.

DAY
8
Ngorongoro Area

Today, enjoy a FULL-DAY GAME DRIVE in Ngorongoro Crater. The crater is technically a caldera—the world’s largest unflooded, in fact, at more than 2,000 feet deep with a floor covering over 102 square miles. Game viewing here is fantastic, as most of the animals stay in this area year round. You can see lion, Cape buffalo, hippo, elephant, and flamingo. This is also your best chance to see the rare black rhinoceros. A picnic lunch will be served in the crater.

DAY
9
Ngorongoro Area–Serengeti National Park

Today, drive to SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK, Tanzania’s largest and most famous park. Home to the annual Great Migration of wildebeest and zebra, generally between late November and July, it attracts visitors from around the world and is great for game viewing year round. Enjoy lunch and some down time prior to your AFTERNOON GAME DRIVE.

NOTE:
The Great Migration is a natural event, and the arrival/departure of the migrating herds varies slightly year to year.

DAY
10
Serengeti

The Serengeti covers an area of roughly 5,700 square miles, so it is no surprise that the name comes from the Maasai word siringit, meaning “endless plains.” Continue exploring this vast park during MORNING & AFTERNOON GAME DRIVES. Search for leopard, rhino, and an abundance of other animals, including cheetah, giraffe, gazelle, and eland.

DAY
11

Designed to blend completely into the landscape, it is entirely invisible from the floor of the Crater 600 meters below. Hugging the contours of the jagged Crater rim, the lodge takes its inspiration from the so-called 'Cradle of Mankind', the prehistoric site of Olduvai Gorge, which lies close by. Linked by arched stone passages and timbered decks, its walls are decorated with stylized prehistoric cave paintings and lit by flaring torches. Electricity is provided 24 hours a day.

Location & Highlights

On the southwestern rim of Ngorongoro Crater.
