Discover the “Big Five” on one of our most popular Tanzania and Kenya safari tours.

Experiences of a lifetime

The Maasai call it “Siringitu” which means “the place where the land moves on forever.” Here columns of wildebeest plod along centuries-old migration routes; behind them, prides of lions prowl, completing the circle of life... elephants, buffaloes and hippos graze upon the large coarse grasses, while zebras and topi wait their turn...

This is the Serengeti, one of the world's extraordinary safari experiences. In Tanzania, you can find a birdwatcher’s paradise in Lake Manyara and Africa’s “Garden of Eden” in Ngorongoro Crater. The circle of life continues in the savannas of Kenya, where indescribable vignettes play out before your eyes in Masai Mara National Reserve and Amboseli National Park... Immerse in the Earth Journeys experience, featuring on-tour film vignettes custom-made by BBC Earth natural history experts plus other select BBC Earth touches. Return to a time when the Great Rift Valley held the secrets of the origins of mankind... Observe huge herds roaming the Serengeti, the "lost world" of Ngorongoro Crater, and free-ranging elephants in Amboseli National Park.. soar in a hot air balloon over the Masai Mara at dawn – capped by a champagne breakfast in the bush... view rescued chimpanzees and protected black rhinos at Ol Pejeta Conservancy... attend a special barbecue dinner accompanied by Maasai cultural performance in the Serengeti... visit the William Holden Wildlife Foundation's animal orphanage during a two-night stay at fabled Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club... meet the weavers of a local village... travel in exclusive open-top safari vehicles, and stay in luxurious tented camps and safari lodges...

On safari in Amboseli National Park

Private game drives in Kenya's Amboseli National Park

Hop aboard your specially built safari vehicle and make tracks on daily game drives across the classic African savannah in Kenya's Amboseli National Park. Guiding you on your treks in search of iconic wildlife are our expert drivers, trackers, rangers, and Tauck Directors... all highly experienced and eager to share their knowledge while keeping everyone engaged, safe and sound!

Ballooning over the Masai Mara

Enjoy a hot air balloon ride over the Masai Mara reserve

You're up before dawn to board a private hot air balloon for a sunset soar over the savanna of Masai Mara National Reserve in southern Kenya... and a birds-eye view of vast herds of animals like lions, cheetahs, zebras, giraffes and elephants as they start their day in the wilderness... then touch down for your a champagne breakfast in the bush!

Four Seasons Safari Lodge Serengeti

Nights 4 and 5

Luxury on the Serengeti plains

Secluded and spacious, the guest rooms of Four Seasons Safari Lodge Serengeti keep you in constant touch with the circle of life on the Serengeti plains. Contemporary African décor features four-poster beds with mosquito netting, local textiles and artwork – all enhanced by modern comforts such as air conditioning and high-speed Internet access. Step outside to your elevated, open-air sundeck with a direct view of the plains and enjoy a private audience with any lions or elephants that might be passing by. And check out the resort's infinity pool... a great place to hang out and watch the wildlife up close, overlooking the animals’ own watering hole.

This trip exceeded our high expectations. We saw all "big 5" animals/many species in beautiful settings and the game drives were well organized and exciting!

What you need to know

Before You Go

Required

Travel Documents, Booking and Deposits, and more

No matter where your destination may be, you should bring identification with you; a valid passport is always an appropriate form of identification. Contact your booking agent for information about all necessary documents required for your journey, such as passport and visa information or documentation required for transportation security measures.

Important Information

Health and Activity

You'll find Activity and Pace Levels on all of our trips to give you a better idea of physical activity level – higher numbers mean a more active journey. To fully enjoy most journeys, you should be in good health and able to walk reasonable distances; some of the most memorable sightseeing can only be accomplished on foot and may include unpaved and uneven surfaces. Please consult your physician for pre-departure health advice.

Protect Your Travel Investment

Deposit Protection Plan

Deposit Protection Plan – Tauck provides a “Deposit Protection Plan” at a cost of AUD $75 per person per tour or cruise. The cost is non-refundable and non-transferable and must be paid at the time of booking with your deposit. It only applies when you cancel your tour or cruise prior to final payment date. The deposit held in credit will exclude fees imposed by third parties in relation to air, rail travel, hotels, transfer or applicable cruise cabins. When booking airfares through Tauck (including when taking advantage of a special offer that includes air travel), standard airline cancellation fees will apply. In some cases, airfares will be non-refundable. In the event of cancellation, these fees will be deducted from the deposit paid, and therefore the credit being held. We will only credit the remainder of deposit to a future tour or cruise booking if you book within 24 months of cancellation of the original Tauck tour or cruise. This offer expires after the 24 months. We will only credit the remainder of the deposit to a future tour or cruise booking Balance Due and it can’t be used as a credit for the initial deposit of a future tour or cruise booking. The Tauck “Deposit Protection Plan” only covers a Tauck tour or cruise and it does not replace Travel Insurance, which we recommend at the time of booking.
