From Our Travelers: A Kenya & Tanzania Safari Tour
A family that has traveled with us many times shared these photos from their recent Artisans of Leisure private luxury safari tour through East Africa. They enjoyed the best safari lodges and incredible game viewing at Ngorongoro Crater and the Singita Grumeti Reserves (Serengeti) in Tanzania and in the Maasai Mara in Kenya.
The family began their luxury safari tour at Singita Sabora Tented Camp on the private Grumeti Reserves, which are connected to Serengeti National Park in Tanzania.

On their safari, the family saw lots of young animals…
…like baby giraffes.
The family also stayed at Singita Sasakwa Lodge on the border of Serengeti National Pak. The lodge has panoramic views over Tanzania’s expansive savanna.
