Meet the Kings of the Jungle on Safari

Embark on a family adventure. A  real-life ‘Lion King’ journey,  filled with the captivating characters and expansive landscapes  celebrated in Disney’s classic.

Your journey plays out against the  boundless plains and rugged outcrops of East Africa’s legendary Masai  Mara, Serengeti, and Ngorongoro Crater: a photographer’s dream of  picture-perfect light, coloured by the unrivalled hues of African  sunrises and sunsets. Children will love this engaging and interpretive  journey, as they learn about the ‘Circle of Life’ as it plays out in the  bush in this cycle that’s as old as our planet.

This is the  animated world in all its cinematic glory, complete with warthogs, clans  of hyena, wildebeest migration herds, warthogs, baboons, zebra,  giraffe, elephant, red-billed hornbills (named Zazu of course) and,  holding centre stage, Africa’s ever-magnificent wild lions.

1 Night Nairobi | 2 Nights Masai Mara | 4 Nights Serengeti | 2 Nights Ngorongoro Crater

Night 1 Narobi, Kenya

  • On  your arrival at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, a representative  will welcome you and transfer you to your hotel in Nairobi.

  • Once at the hotel, it’s time for “hakuna matata” (no worries): relax, recoup, and enjoy your beautiful surroundings.

  • Enjoy  a private visit to the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (an elephant and rhino  orphanage) followed by dinner at your Hotel. The private viewing takes  place at 15h00, a scheduled feed time for the orphaned elephants lasts  for 30-40 minutes. During this time you would be able to experience a  personalized encounter with both the orphans and their Keepers. An  employee from the trust will be present to explain about the project and  the individual rescue stories of each elephant orphan in the nursery.

  • The  only city in the world with a national park on its doorstep, Nairobi is  the hub of East Africa and is packed with unique attractions, from  bustling markets to fascinating historical sites such as the Karen  Blixen Museum.

  • Named after a Maasai watering hole, ‘enkare  nyarobi’, which means ‘place of cool waters’, the city is also known for  its leafy streets and parks. A modern city with towering skyscrapers  and imposing architecture, Nairobi also boasts a beautiful skyline.

Nights 2 - 3 Masai Mara, Kenya

  • You will be collected from your hotel for your early flight in to the Masai Mara, where you will be welcomed by the &Beyond Bateleur Camp team.

  • From  the moment you land in the Mara you will be captivated by the sights  and sounds. Settle in before embarking on your first game drive. You  should get to see a host of familiar characters, including Zazu and his  fellow red-billed hornbills, gatherings of elephant, buffalo, giraffe,  lion and cheetah, alongside wildebeest and zebra. At the camp we have  many resident warthog, so look out for ‘Pumba’.

  • Choose from a  wonderful range of excursions over the next two days: game drives,  nature walks, night drives, or at an additional cost, Maasai community  visits.

  • Catch the moment when the sunrise spills over the  plains, lighting up the flat-topped acacias: the landscape that inspired  the unforgettable opening scene of this African epic.

Nights 4 - 5 Serengeti National Park, Tanzania

  • This morning, wake early for your  connection through Tarime (or Wilson in low demand season) to the  Serengeti. You will have about an hour’s flight, followed by a drive  across the border, before connecting to another short flight to &Beyond Grumeti Serengeti Tented Camp.

  • Located  in the remote Western Corridor of the Serengeti, this picturesque  riverside camp and surrounds is known not only for its high-season  dramatic wildebeest crossings and enormous Nile crocodiles, but also for  its exceptional year-round wildlife.

  • Freshen up with a swim in  the pool overlooking the seasonal hippo pods, before heading out on a  game drive. With few other vehicles, it will feel like your private  Serengeti.

  • This is ‘Mufasa’ country: discover the art of  tracking as you follow the massive paw prints of lions to find them  slumbering under shady trees, on the prowl, or playfully interacting  with one another

  • On your game drives from the camp, you can  expect to encounter large lion prides, bounding ‘Simbas’ and ‘Nalas’,   and giggling clans of ‘Shenzi’ and his hyena buddies up to a hundred  strong.

Nights 6 - 7 Serengeti National Park, Tanzania

  • After breakfast, you’ll head to &Beyond Serengeti Under Canvas. This is seasonal mobile camp that changes location five times a year, as it shadows the migration.

  • Here  your adventure continues in this luxurious tented camp, complete with a  private butler service, chandeliers, silver and crystal ware, and  comfortable beds with fluffy duvets. Dinners are an idyllic lantern-lit  affair, held under a canopy of stars.

  • This mobile camp is  designed to shadow the migration, providing optimal sightings of the  mega herds of wildebeest and zebra, with an ever-present plethora of big  cats in close attendance.

  • Look out for ‘Shenzi’ and his cronies  skulking in the shadows, hoping to scavenge a tasty morsel or two. Is  ‘Scar’ perhaps close by?

  • Gather around a roaring campfire to  share stories of the day’s magic as the African night comes alive. Toast  marshmallows over the camp fire, or sip a glass of full-bodied red  wine.

Nights 8 - 9 Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania

  • Today you head off to &Beyond  Ngorongoro Crater, famed as an ancient caldera and unique ecosystem, and  home to a teeming gathering of game that has echoes of the animated  classic.

  • Take pleasure in the dramatic contrast of the lodge’s  baroque elegance, and the drop-away views onto this UNESCO World  Heritage Site.

  • Spend a day in the Crater, looking for big tuskers and the endangered Rhino.

  • Stretch your legs and do a guided crater rim walk, or book a full-day Empakai hike, a birdwatcher’s heaven.*

  • We  highly recommend participating in a KOPELion conservation experience,  or meeting the lion guardians that are working to secure Simba’s future  in the wild.* (Be sure to book this activity in advance).

  • Toast the day with sundowner cocktails to the accompaniment of a private performance by Maasai warriors.*

*These activities are at an additional cost
