You’ve come for the wildest wildlife, and East Africa won’t disappoint.
In Kenya, Samburu is home to Grevy’s zebra, the reticulated giraffe, and the gerenuk (you’ll see). The Masai Mara, along with the Serengeti in Tanzania, is home to the annual Great Migration. Spend a bit of time at Lake Nakuru, whose waters attract immense flocks of flamingos.
Then into Tanzania. The grassy Serengeti is populated by creatures that are easy
to spot on the treeless expanse. Ngorongoro Crater is a veritable
microcosm of East Africa’s fauna—lion prides, elephant herds, flamingo
flocks, and most other species that evolution’s managed to cook up.
How’s that for wild?
Kenya & Tanzania. An East African Safari with Jonathan Scott & Angie Scott in the Masai Mara. 14 Days.
In February 2013, a small, like-minded group of R. Crusoe & Son travelers heads to East African for a quite remarkable safari through Kenya and Tanzania We are delighted to Jonathan Scott and his wife, Angie, join us for three wonderful days in Kenya's Masai Mara.
We are keeping this group small—limited to a maximum of 18 travelers—to ensure that all travelers have an intimate experience. Space is available on a first come, first served basis.
We travel (mostly by light aircraft) to the best game parks of both nations. In the Masai Mara Jonathan and Angie, who call Kenya home, share their unbounded enthusiastic and passion for their adopted country. They offer their insights, expertise, and incredible experiences in the East African bush.
R. Crusoe surrounds our travelers with unexpected luxury so that they experience East Africa’s wild side in a most civilized way.
A bit about Jonathan and Angie Scott. Born in London in 1949, Jonathan earned a degree in zoology before heading off to Africa in 1977. Author, journalist, illustrator, television host, and award-winning photographer, he is known around the world for his vast knowledge of East Africa’s animals.
In 1997, Jonathan married Angela, who grew up in Tanzania and is herself an expert naturalist and an award-winning photographer. They bought a home outside Nairobi near an elephant orphanage. Its four-legged residents would become the stars of the BBC’s popular “Elephant Diaries,” which Jonathan co-presents. He also co-presents the BBC’s beloved “Big Cat Diary” series.
Though they enjoy their work on the small screen, it is the Masai Mara that beckons to Jonathan and Angie time and again. They’ve witnessed countless Great Migrations but can’t resist returning each year to watch this remarkable spectacle.
Begin in Nairobi, Kenya, with an overnight at the fabled Norfolk Hotel.
Fly into Kenya’s Samburu National Reserve, which has a terrain all its own. It also is the only place on earth you can see the gerenuk, a peculiar antelope that stands on its hind legs to eat. Also here: rare Grevy’s zebras, reticulated giraffes, and other creatures.
Next, fly to the Masai Mara, where we meet up with Jonathan and Angie for three wonderful days tracking animals in the bush.
Then into Tanzania. We head for the Serengeti, one of Africa’s great wonders and a home to uncountable animals.
Ngorongoro Crater is an otherworldly place where nature makes her own rules.
Visit the coffee farmlands of Karatu, then fly back to Nairobi and home, a head (and heart) full of East Africa.
