Uganda, Kenya And Tanzania: A Prefect Itinerary for 2024
Uganda, Kenya And Tanzania: A Prefect Itinerary for 2024. This vacation begins with gorilla trekking in Uganda’s lush rain forests and continues on to the savannahs of Kenya’s Masai Mara and Tanzania’s Serengeti, where you can witness the Great Wildebeest Migration. Next, you’ll visit the Ngorongoro Crater, which is home to the “Big 5” species of Africa (lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and buffalo), before kicking back at a coffee lodge with a view of Mount Meru.
Flying rather than driving between cities saves time and energy. There are a few overnight stops at city hotels included into the itinerary to keep things moving at a leisurely pace; these are ideal opportunities to kick the dust off your feet and catch up on what’s happening back at home. Small, intimate tented lodges in excellent game-viewing regions house you during your safari, and their spacious, plush tents come complete with private toilets and patios from which to take it all in. You get to go on a game drive every morning and afternoon, and you can even meet some of the locals. Hot air balloon rides are an additional possibility.
Nature lovers and wildlife photographers will enjoy this journey because of the abundance of unique experiences and diverse creatures they will encounter. Because of the high quality of the lodgings and the excellent service, it is also ideal for honeymooners and other couples on vacation.

The next morning, after breakfast at the hotel, you will be taken back to Entebbe Airport for your journey to Kihihi. You’ll be picked up and taken to the Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp, where you’ll spend the next three nights. Before visiting the local people and taking an educational stroll with native guides, you can relax in your suite, one of only eight at camp with views into the lush jungle canopy. The next two days will be spent in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park, being led by knowledgeable guides. The highlight of your trip will be meeting a gorilla in the wild (you have two gorilla day permits), but other fascinating primates, birds, and butterflies are all possible encounters. After a long day of hiking, you may look forward to a relaxing soak in your suite’s deep bathtub as the sun sets and a roaring campfire with local songs.
Days 5 – 6 From the Rainforest to Nairobi | 1 Night
Today you will be doing some traveling; after breakfast, you will be taken back to Kihihi to catch your aircraft to Entebbe. A representative will be waiting to help you board a flight to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi. You will be taken to House of Waine, the traditional first stop on countless Kenyan safaris. The hotel is conveniently close to several of the city’s main sights, including the Giraffe Centre, the Daphne Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage, and numerous craft galleries.
Days 6 – 9: Fly into the Masai Mara | 3 Nights
WILDLIFE SAFARI in KENYA, AFRICA (Masai Mara)
You will be transported from your accommodation to the city’s smaller Wilson Airport in time for your scheduled charter flight to the Masai Mara after breakfast. Located in the midst of the Masai Mara National Reserve on the banks of the Mara River, Sanctuary Olonana is a magnificent tented camp. Predators in particular will find it to be an ideal wildlife viewing location throughout the year. One of the most exciting parts of the Wildebeest Migration takes place near the Mara River between July and October. Two full days are at your disposal to take in the sights and sounds of the bush on professionally guided morning and afternoon game drives, regardless of the season. At the end of each day, you may relax in the camp’s mini-spa or take a dip in the camp’s own pool.
Days 9 – 12: Under Canvas in the Serengeti | 3 Nights
Before you go, get some food from the lodge’s cafeteria to eat on the road. After a hearty breakfast, you’ll be transferred to Migori, a Kenyan border town from where you may enter Tanzania and the city of Tarime. Once you arrive at the Serengeti National Park airstrip after your flight from Tarime, you’ll be received and sent to the Sanctuary Kichakani Serengeti Camp, where you’ll spend the next three nights. The chic and modern Kichakani camp is a migration expert’s dream, with prime locations for viewing the rumbling herds and the ever-present predators. Two full days of game drives await you; use this time to fully charge your camera’s batteries in your suite.
Days 12 – 14: Search for the Big 5 in Ngorongoro | 2 Nights
You can reach the edge of Ngorongoro Crater, the world’s biggest complete volcanic crater, from the Serengeti by flying to the nearby town of Manyara and then taking a road transfer. Your lodge, Sanctuary Ngorongoro Crater Lodge, is situated in a wooded valley just off the main road leading into the Crater, giving you a head start on the traffic. The next day, when you take a full-day journey to the Crater floor, you will see even more incredible sights than you did from camp the night before. Hippos, hyenas, flamingos, and big herds of antelope and zebra may all be seen at this popular tourist site, which is also noted for its easy and regular views of the Big 5. When you return to camp, you can relax in your private tent bathroom.
Days 14 – 15: Coffee with Mount Meru Views | 1 Night
ARUSHA COFFEE LODGE – ELEWANA COLLECTION
From Manyara, you may reach Arusha, Tanzania’s main international airport, in under an hour by plane. You will be picked up and taken to the Arusha Coffee Lodge, which is located only five minutes from the airport and has stunning views of the country’s largest coffee plantation and the country’s second-highest mountain, Mount Meru. Log fires, spa treatments, gourmet meals, and the best coffee you’ve ever had can all be found in the lodge’s peaceful environment. With Wi-Fi, it’s simple to look over vital documents and schedule forthcoming trips without leaving the house.
