Loitokitok Border

Cross the border from Kenya to Tanzania and Tanzania to Kenya is one of the most asked questions. The two countries share a lot of wild life and the most common being the Wildebeests that cross form the Ngorongoro conservation area and the Serengeti national Park to the Masai Mara in the dry months to look for fresh green grazing fields. Some tourists would love to see the animals depart the Tanzania grazing land and cross to Kenya to see them arrive and settle in.

In some instances, one you like to do a safari in Kenya and add on an extension of Tanzania or vice versa. You can fly in via Kilimanjaro international airport and fly out from the Nairobi Airport. Here we give you a detailed explanation on how to access both countries via the land boarder.

On the other hand, the Kilimanjaro which is the tallest mountain in Africa, Ngorongoro conservation area and Serengeti National park which is an extension of the Masai Mara National Park in Kenya are all within a short drive from the Border.

The ecosystems in all these conservation areas is almost the same and I you miss one of the animals in one area; you can view it in another. This is therefore the reason why you have to have enough knowledge on how to cross the border from either Kenya to Tanzania or Tanzania to Kenya.
