At the hotel, you will receive a warm welcome from the friendly and professional staff. The room will be tranquil and comfortable decorated to emit a calm, colonial-style atmosphere.

Day 2: Journey to the Serengeti

Wake up early in the morning and get done with breakfast. I hope you haven’t unpacked your bags as today, you will be leaving to your second destination of this Kenya safari tour i.e. Serengeti. The same guide who has escorted you to this hotel will transfer you to Arusha International Airport where you will board a flight to Serengeti.

After landing down, you will take a scenic drive to an exclusive safari camp, Sayari. Enjoy the scenic views while stretching your legs in the ensuite tented camps. Marvel at the panoramic views of the Serengeti plains from the comfort of your tent's private deck. This is how the second day of your Kenya safari tour is going to spend.

Day 3-5: Exploring Serengeti to the fullest

Places to visit in Serengeti are many and in order to explore them all, you will have to give it some days. A stay of 2-3 days would be enough to taste every inch of wilderness Serengeti all have for travelers.

You might not be aware of the fact that Serengeti is among the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa and today, you are going to witness it. The experience of discovering this hidden treasure trove of Africa would be spectacular.

If you are visiting the famous Sayari Camp in the peak months i.e. the months of July and August, you may be able to witness the dramatic Mara River crossings. During your stay in the camp, you will also explore the majestic Serengeti National Park to spot the resident wildlife including buffalo, elephant, giraffe and all the big cats. Do you need to think twice about it? No, definitely not. It’s going to be a fantastic game viewing sight for this trip.

The camp boasts a beautiful infinity pool after a game drive or guided walk where you can curl up with a good book and a glass of wine in the lounge. The evening campfire set up makes this place a bit cozier and a perfect place to share safari stories. All this will happen while your chef will prepare your scrumptious blend of European and African cuisine. Nothing can beat the magnificent dining area where meals will be served under the starry sky.

Day 6-8:  Get whisked off to Zanzibar

Another day in Kenya and another day of adventure but this time, it won’t be the wildlife that will catch your attention but the picturesque backgrounds of Zanzibar that will take your breath away. If you are looking for amazing backgrounds for your Kenya snaps, the stone town of Zanzibar needs your attention. It is unique and spellbinding at the same time. No matter what mode you chose to arrive in the town - a ferry or a plane - you’ll start your time in Stone Town, so don’t miss it and head straight to the beach. While doing so, do reserve some to while away in the culturally rich town. And, did we tell you that this is the place which is famous for the gigantic tortoises? Sounds exciting? Explore it all and you will get some really interesting things to backpack.

After witnessing the scenic stone town, it’s time to move on to the next destination which is stunning as the previous one. Here we are talking about the beautiful Paje beach which adds value to Kenya Safri tourism. This beautiful beach of Pajeon Zanzibar’s east coast is among the top attractions of Tanzania. We have kept it in last to give you relaxing moments at the end of your Tanzania Safari. After spending several days in the wild, the calmness of the beach actually makes sense. Enjoy sunbathing or boat riding - things to do on the beach are many. Choose what fits your timeframe and mood. Spend some days there and soak your soul - not only your eyes - with the scenic views and relaxing waves. If you are traveling with kids and family, this is the place that is going to become their fave.

Day 9: Departure

Today is the last day of your Kenya Tour. You will be driving back to the hotel from where you have started all this. A short flight will take you to the hotel where you will spend the last day of the Kenya tour. Your 9 days Tour in Kenya is finally completing and today you will be saying Cheerios to the scenic beauty of this place. With lots of special memories in your heart, you will transfer to the airport for a happy return. Do not miss to enjoy your farewell breakfast in the hotel before the exit formalities. You will love the sweet gesture shown by the hotel staff.
