Get ready for an extraordinary Olivia experience! This exclusive tour sells out quickly, and is back by popular demand, so book now!
Our African Safari to Kenya and Tanzania is 10 days of adventure designed to delight you. Visit Nairobi, Kenya; the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania; the Ngorongoro Crater and Conservation Area in Tanzania; and the Maasai Mara Game Reserve in Kenya. From amazing service at the best 5-star hotel in Nairobi, to special cultural experiences, wildlife drives, and a local guide who knows Nairobi inside and out, Olivia has orchestrated a premier African safari adventure just for you.
Olivia brings you an unparalleled African experience—Visit with an esteemed Maasai elder; take in stunning vistas filled with lions, leopards, gazelle, and hippo; feed a giraffe, and see an elephant feeding; visit Karen Blixen’s “Out of Africa” home; lunch with a bead jeweler whose profits go to ensure disadvantaged girls are provided with housing and an education…and that’s just the beginning!
We have carefully arranged this trip so that you spend the bulk of your time exploring! Three flights with all transfers within Africa are included to enhance your comfort and minimize lengthy drives on dusty, bumpy roads, so you can spend more time taking photos and making memories. On safari, we will seat a maximum of six guests in our nine-passenger vehicles, guaranteeing you a window seat and access to a pop-up roof hatch.
We’ve chosen expert guides who know and love Olivia, and who help us make your vacation the trip of a lifetime. Our guides are also making a difference in their local communities. For example, our safari tour operator gives back extensively to the Nairobi community, helping girls escape the slums by sponsoring scholarship programs. We’ll even have an optional visit to the children in the AmeriShare program.
