Tipilikwani Mara Camp

Set on the banks of Talek River and overlooking the Mara plains, Tipilikwani Mara Camp has one of the most spectacular views available. Set in the middle of what is considered the greatest wildlife reserve in Africa, Maasai Mara, it is home to one of the modern wonders of the world; the wildebeest migration as well as home to the Big Five.

You can enjoy an alfresco breakfast by Talek River, enjoy a cold refreshing drink over a spectacular sunset, or experience fine candlelight dining, all of them are overlooked by carefully trained attentive staff.

Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge

Nestled in the foothills of Kilimanjaro, hidden beneath a copse of giant acacia trees, and beside a gently flowing natural spring lies Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge.

The lodge has 96 beautifully appointed rooms and a swimming pool filled with fresh water from a spring flowing from Mount Kilimanjaro.

Eight million years ago, Ngorongoro Crater was an active volcano before its cone collapsed and formed the crater that is 610 meters deep, 20 kilometers in diameter, and covers an area of 311 kilometers square. Spectacular as it is, the crater accounts for just a tenth of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. The crater is home to many species of wild game and birds.

With the exception of impalas, topis (due to fierce competition with the wildebeests) and giraffe (because there is not much to eat at tree level), almost every species of African plains mammal including the endangered black rhinos and the densest population of predators in Africa lives in the crater. The birdlife, which includes the flamingo, is mainly seasonal and is also affected by the ratio of soda to the fresh water in Lake Magadi on the crater floor.

Unmatched for its natural variety and breath-taking beauty, there are few places on earth where such a tremendous diversity of landscapes exist inside a region this size.
