Africa conjures up dreamy images of mystical mountains, savanna grasslands, and endless plains, but for the adventure seeker, it’s where the wild things are. The “Big 5”—lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and Cape buffalo await you on this ultimate safari through East Africa. Featuring unique lodges and tented camps, custom-made 4-wheel-drive safari vehicles, and exclusive meals in the bush, this Kenya and Tanzania tour promises larger than life experiences and countless memories. You’ll savor the unique terrain and wildlife at seven renowned national parks, reserves, and conservancies, including the famous Maasai Mara National Reserve, and the vast, volcanic Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Beyond sightings of the “Big 5,” be on the lookout for cheetah, wildebeest, crocodile, hippo, and rhino. On the tamer side, you’ll also enjoy a visit to the Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary as well as the endearing experience of meeting the local children at a primary school in Karatu.
Continue your African adventure with a Monograms holiday package in Nairobi, including guided sightseeing/game drives, accommodations, and services of a Local Host® in the city and/or expert Driver/Guide on safari. Feed endangered giraffes at the Giraffe Center, meet orphaned elephant calves at the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, and visit the former home of Out of Africa author Karen Blixen on this independent holiday stay in Kenya’s capital city.
Finally, there’s no better way to decelerate after an exhilarating holiday of game drives than with a breezy, island getaway. Relax with laid-back sun, fun, and fare after your African adventure with a Monograms holiday package in Zanzibar. Move too fast and the hospitable locals will offer the gentle reminder, “Pole, pole!” meaning “Slowly, slowly!” Both Monograms holidays include guided sightseeing, accommodations, and services of a Local HostSM.
