Upon your arrival at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, you will be met by a member from the &Beyond team who will drive you to Wilson Airport in time to connect to your scheduled SafariLink flight to Masai Mara for Mara Bushtops.

As Kenya’s most renowned wilderness destination, the Masai Mara National Reserve offers exceptional game viewing, including the opportunity to witness the Great Migration — one of nature’s greatest wildlife spectacles. The park takes its name from the Mara River, which flows through the reserve, and from the Maasai people.

Your stay includes accommodation, 3 meals per person per night, two extended game drives daily or one full game drive with picnic lunch, private conservancy fees, transfers from local airstrip (keekorok – 45 min or Siana – 10 min), laundry, unlimited massage but subject to availability, non alcoholic drinks and beer, bush breakfast, bush lunch, sundowner followed by night game drive back to the camp and bush walk accompanied by an armed KWS ranger.

Here you will be met by a representative from Coastal Aviation and you will be driven across the border to Tarime Airstrip, upon arrival you will depart on your scheduled Coastal Aviation flight to Kogatende Airstrip for Serengeti Bushtops.

The Serengeti National Park, meaning “endless plains” in the Maasai language, is undoubtedly one of the world’s most celebrated wilderness areas and is an ongoing source of inspiration to writers, filmmakers and photographers. It is Tanzania’s oldest game reserve, renowned for the part it plays in the annual Great Migration, when an estimated three million antelope — mostly wildebeest — migrate to Kenya’s Masai Mara Game Reserve. This epic, seasonal journey is a deeply moving experience and a wonderful photographic subject. Here visitors to the park can roam its sprawling plains on exhilarating game drives or hop into a hot-air balloon for a once-in-a-lifetime wilderness adventure.

Relax for 2 night/s at Serengeti bushtops in a chalet. Your stay includes meals, non-alcoholic drinks , teas and coffees, 2 game drives or one full day game drive with picnic lunch, transfers to / from Kogatenda airstrip.

Day 6

After breakfast, you will be transferred back to Kogatende Airstrip in time for your scheduled Tanganyika Flying Company flight to Manyara Airstrip. Upon arrival at the airtrip you will be met by a representative from The Manor at Ngorongoro and transferred by road to the lodge.

The Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area, within the Serengeti, is home to more than 30 000 protected animals. It is an area of spectacular beauty and excellent game viewing, a truly unique safari destination in Africa. The Ngorongoro Crater, once a gigantic volcano, is the largest intact caldera in the world. Some maintain that before it erupted, it would have been higher than Mt Kilimanjaro, the highest peak in Africa. Today, long since having collapsed and eroded, it is an extensive highland area with the famous 600 metre deep Ngorongoro Crater as its focal point. Nearly three million years old, the ancient caldera shelters one of the most beautiful wildlife havens on earth. Fresh springs and a large soda lake quench the thirst of all the inhabitants. Black rhino are protected within its rim, giant tusked elephants wander the forests, black-maned lions stalk the grasslands, and flamingos crowd the soda lakes.

Day 8  

After breakfast, you will be transferred to Manyara Airstrip for your scheduled Tanganyika Flying Company flight to Arusha Airport. Here you will be met by a representative from &Beyond and transferred to The Arusha Hotel for lunch on own arrangements and later, you will be transferred to Kilimanjaro International Airport for your outbound flight.

The attractive little town of Arusha is situated beneath the towering peaks of Mt. Meru and Kilimanjaro. Renowned as the safari capital of Tanzania, it offers a plethora of attractions and adventures. The town has numerous first-class restaurants, bars and markets, and is the ideal place to spend a few relaxing days before embarking on a safari or attempting to scale Kili. Not-to-be-missed is the Arusha National Park (in Ngurdoto Crater), the National Natural History Museum, the Laetoli Footprints (set in volcanic ash, dating back 3 500 000 years) and the beautiful coffee plantations that dot the landscape.
