ARRIVE NAIROBI, KENYA
Arrive in Nairobi and transfer to your hotel, where your Child Activity Coordinator may greet you with “jambo” (hello). The next day, meet remarkable African species in two special settings. Visit the Giraffe Center, where you may hand-feed endangered Rothschild’s giraffes from a platform that brings you to eye level with these majestic giants. At Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, watch young elephants at play with attentive keepers, who explain the process of reintroducing the elephants into the wild. Later, visit the innovative Ocean Sole workshop to see how recycled flip-flops are transformed into incredible works of art. Tonight, gather for a special welcome dinner.
AMBOSELI NATIONAL PARK | ON THE PROWL
Depart for Amboseli National Park, famous for its big game and views of snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro. After lunch at your lodge and, perhaps, a lesson in spear throwing with your Child Activity Coordinator, it’s time for a thrilling safari. Roll out through acacia woodlands, freshwater marshes and open plains in search of elephants, zebra and wildebeest. The next day, discover more of this wildlife haven on additional game drives, with majestic Kilimanjaro as an inspiring backdrop.
NGORONGORO CRATER, TANZANIA | The “Lost World”
Drive from Kenya into Tanzania, stopping in Arusha for lunch. Then, fly to Manyara and transfer to your lodge, perched on the rim of Ngorongoro Crater. A UNESCO World Heritage Site formed by the collapse of a volcano in the distant past, Ngorongoro Crater is home to an incredible concentration of wildlife, including one of the highest densities of lions. Tonight, take in sweeping views from your own private balcony. The next morning, descend into the crater, arriving ahead of most visitors — thanks to the ideal location of your accommodations on the crater’s rim — to view the resident wildlife at its most active time of day. Later, visit a Maasai village, where you meet with the village elder and learn how to make the tribal community’s unique beaded jewelry.
SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK | THE BIG FIVE
Depart for Serengeti National Park. Stop for a privately guided visit to Olduvai Gorge, an archaeological site housing some of the earliest fossilized human bones. Arrive at your lodge and, time permitting, set out on your first game drive in the unparalleled Serengeti. The next day brings morning and afternoon game drives in search of Africa’s Big Five — leopards, buffalo, elephants, rhinos and lions.
MASAI MARA GAME RESERVE, KENYA | RIFT VALLEY
Transfer by air and overland to Kenya’s Masai Mara Game Reserve. Check in to your luxury camp near the Mara River. Later, enjoy an exciting afternoon game drive. Explore this magnificent savanna country for the next two days on morning and afternoon game drives, searching for giraffes, hippos and hyenas. Look forward to a family-friendly sundowner experience, sipping refreshing mocktails and cocktails from a surprise scenic location. Back at camp, your Child Activity Coordinator leads young guests on bush treasure hunts and teaches the craft of fire-making. A Family Foodie Experience offers an opportunity to join your chef and prepare regionally inspired dishes together. Later, experience local life when you opt to visit with students at a nearby primary school (when in session). Tonight, celebrate with a farewell dinner.
Fly to Nairobi and enjoy a reserved dayroom. Transfer to the airport and depart.
