Another popular route to Karen Blixen Camp is to connect via the Serengeti and cross the Tanzania/Kenya border west of the Mara. Both Kilimanjaro and Dar es Salaam airports are well connected, and from there a network of flights connect to the Serengeti safari lodges and camps. From the Serengeti, it’s a short flight to Tarime, a quick road transfer across the border to the Migori airstrip in Kenya, and another short flight into the Mara. All in all, if you left a Serengeti camp in the morning, you could be in the Mara in time for lunch. Once again, we would be delighted to book these flights for you.
