Cross-Border - East Africa Trails: Kenya and Tanzania Small Group Escorted Tour

This small group guided safari tour takes you to both Kenya and Tanzania so you can see a huge amount of wildlife in a fortnight. There are many highlights on this trip including: a visit to the orphaned elephants at the Daphne Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage and feeding the giraffes at the Giraffe Centre in Nairobi, spotting the famous Big ‘5’ whilst game viewing in the world famous Masai Mara Game & Serengeti Game Reserves and visiting the UNESCO World Heritage site of the stunningly beautiful Ngorongoro Crater.

This is a small group safari so there is a maximum of just 7 clients in a minivan vehicle with an English Speaking driver/guide. This small group size means you can often be on your own but even if you are travelling with other clients you are all guaranteed a window seat. These vehicles also have a pop-up roof so you can stand up in the vehicle and have a 360 degree view. However in Tanzania a 4x4 vehicle is used as the terrain is more rugged.

The Real World Conservation Trust (formerly Real Africa Trust) works with leading conservation organisations to raise awareness as well as raising funds for specific projects. Partners include Save the Elephants, Save the Rhino, The Sheldrick Trust, Rhino Conservation Botswana and Animals saving Animals. You can find out more on our Conservation pages. On behalf of every client travelling, Real Africa makes a donation to the Trust. Our aim is to raise awareness about the plight of endangered species and to promote sustainable, socially responsible travel which benefits the wildlife and communities you choose to visit.
