Hi am looking for some suggestions on embellishing a 10 day safari. The safari schedule is:
Day 1 – Oct. 31 Day 10 – Nov. 9
Nairobi – Dame Daphne Sheldrick’s Elephant Orphange, Lunch at Gemini’s, Welcome cocktails and Dinner at the Pintos Estate
Visit Karen Blixen’s Estate and Giraffe Center, Special Dinner at Carnivore Restaurant.
Charter flight to Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Tanzania. Transfer to Nogorongoro Serena Lodge
Journey by 4 wheel drive into the Caldera searching for the “Big 5” game drive ,
Drive to Serengeti Park, with stop at Olduvai Gorge, picnic lunch, game drive Transfer to Serengeti Serena Lodge
Serengeti National Park Game Drives
Flight to Maasai Mara and transfer to Governor’s Camp
Morning and afternoon game drives. Optional Hot Air Balloon and Lake Victoria excursions. Visit a Maasai village and end the evening with a Farewell Bush Dinner
Morning game drive, transfer to airstrip for flight to Nairobi. AmericaShare visit to Mukuru slums, day room at hotel,
I would like to add on an additional 8-10 days to the trip. I had originally thought about going to cape town first and then go to Nairobi but now am thinking maybe Zanzibar or Mombasa would be a better use of time and space. I am interested mostly in animals, marine life, and cultures. It is hard to give up Cape town but know that their is much to see in Kenya/Tanzania. Any itinerary suggestions would be so appreciated.
