“A schedule departure safari that visits Amboseli National Park, Lake Naivasha, Lake Nakuru National Park and Masai Mara National Reserve with options to visit Mt Longonot or Crescent Island. The tour ends with a 3 day, 2 night stay in Zanzibar Island – completely different cuisine, architecture and activities than the safari!”
