It is a fairly short drive to reach our next destination, Bagamoyo, who’s name goes back to the days of slavery and means, lay down your heart. We settle into our overnight spot which is situated on the beach. Here you will have the afternoon free to step into the inviting Indian Ocean or laze on the beach and enjoy the timeless views across the ocean.

The following day we will prepare for our journey into the Serengeti.

The following days are set aside for the 3-night optional camping excursion into the Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Crater. This area has one of the most densely inhabited large animal populations in Africa.

After crossing the border into Kenya we continue to travel towards Nairobi. Founded by the British in 1899 as a simple rail depot, the town quickly grew to become the capital of British East Africa and eventually the capital of Kenya in 1963.
