East African Overland Safari

We land in Nairobi, Kenya to take possession of our Land Rover 110 Defender, home on wheels for the next three months. Ready to hit the tracks & trails we head deep & wide into East Africa!

First we drive South East through Lake Amboseli, Tsavo East & West National Parks (NP) spotting elephant herds & black rhino. Continuing out to the port of Mombasa & north to the clear blue coastal waters of Lamu. Then back inland towards Mt Kenya for the BIG climb to the summit!

We make our way North to Marsabit NP & the Jade waters of Lake Turkana. Heading south through the Rift Valley, towards Lake Nakuru NP, Lake Naivasha NP & Hells Gate NP while discovering dramatic views & gorges filled with giraffe, zebra & flamingo’s in their thousands. Next we enter the Maasai Mara for the great wilder beast migration & to spot the big 5!

Crossing the boarder into Tanzania we enter into the  Serengeti NP. Tracking west takes us to Lake Victoria & the Congo rain forest.  Spying on Chimpanzee in Kigoma & Mahale Mountain NP. Following the boarder South east we  drop into Malawi. We follow the shores of Lake Nyasa for sunset views over Mozambique. Heading back to Tanzania & out to the coast to Dar Es Salaam & the island of Zanzibar for  tropical sunsets & beach side relaxation.

We head North to Mt Kilimanjaro NP & Ngorongoro Crater for the last of our African nights. Final destination is back to  Nairobi to regroup & fly to America!
