  1. Day 1 Nairobi to Maasai Mara

    Kickstarting your safari with an early pickup from Nairobi, you will head towards the world famous Maasai Mara Game Reserve. The 6 hour long drive to the reserve covers about 280km with a combination of smooth tarred roads and bumpy muddy trials. The last 90mins are particularly bumpy and not very suitable for people with back problems.

    The Game Reserve is Kenya’s numero uno park and is usually on the “Must visit list” of every tourist. True to its legacy, the Masai Mara is full of life and home to over 450 species of birds and animals. The highlight of these rolling grasslands and Acacia savannas are the Big 5 ( Elephant, Buffalo, Lion, Leopard and Rhino) To say the least, it definitely crowns the climax of every other safari in Kenya.

    Apart from the famous “Big 5”, the Masai Mara is known for another natural spectacle - The Great Migration. It is an annual activity which includes the migration of over one million wildebeest, zebra, gazelle etc from the Serengeti in Northern Tanzania to Kenya by crossing over the Mara river in search of fresh green feeding pastures. This is generally visible in the Masai Mara region in July or August.

    The long day comes to an end with a delicious dinner and overnight rest at your chosen camp or lodge.

    Note that the last 1-hour drive to Masai Mara is on the corrugated and bumpy road and may not be comfortable for clients with back problems. Clients with back problems can consider flying directly to (and out of) Masai Mara

  2. Day 2 Maasai Mara

    Your safari will begin with an early morning game drive in the grasslands followed by breakfast back at the camp. Winding up with breakfast, you will head out to spend the whole day in the park in search of its popular resident predators and prey like Zebra, Wildebeest, Giraffe, Big 5 and so on.

    Packed lunch will be consumed while you are on the safari, followed by a visit to the Mara river. The river is well known for its dangerous crocodile that provide ample kill viewing experiences.

    The day comes to an end with a delicious dinner and overnight rest at your chosen camp or lodge.

  3. Day 3 Maasai Mara to Lake Nakuru

    The destination for today is the famous Lake Nakuru. Starting your day early and finishing up a quick breakfast, you will begin the 6 hour long journey covering a distance of about 340 kms to Lake Nakuru. On reaching Lake Nakuru in the afternoon, you will be just in time for a scrumptious lunch and a few hours to rest after checking-in to the lodge.

    Early in the evening you will head out on your game drive to see one of the world’s largest ornithological sites. The lake Nakuru region is extremely famous for its flamingoes and diverse wildlife. What adds on even more awe to the place is the Black and White Rhinos that are found in this park.

    The eventful day comes to an end with freshly prepared dinner and overnight rest at your chosen lodge or camp.

  4. Day 4 Lake Nakuru to Lake Naivasha

    Today’s destination is the Hell’s gate national park. Heading out towards Lake Naivasha after breakfast, it would take about 2 hours to cover the 95km distance.

    Situated at 1880m above sea level, Lake Naivasha is Kenya’s highest freshwater lake. It gets its name from the local maasai language, meaning “rough water” because of the sudden storms which occur.

    Upon reaching the lake by mid morning, you can choose to do do either boat trips on the lake or take pleasant nature walk at Crescent island. The area is flocked with animals like the giraffe, buffaloes, colobus monkeys, waterbucks , elands and impalas. Over 200 species of birds are recorded in the region making it a treat to watch.

    You will reach your lodge or camp in time for lunch. After completing your check in and lunch you will begin the afternoon game drive. With recharged enthusiasm you will enter the famous Hell’s Gate National Park.

    The name comes from a narrow break in the cliffs, which was once a tributary of a prehistoric lake. The park offers a diverse scenery filled with cliffs, gorges, rock towers and volcanoes. Keep a keen eye to spot baboons, vultures, Verreaux’s eagles, buzzards and the fancy klipspringer antelope.

    The eventful day comes to an end with a delicious dinner and much needed rest in your accommodation.

  5. Day 5 Lake Naivasha to Amboseli

    Starting your day earlier than usual, you will begin your drive towards Amboseli National Park. The long drive of 315km will take about 6 hours to reach.

    Arriving at Amboseli National Park right in time for lunch, you will be checked in to your lodge or camp. Post lunch you will experience a half day game drive in the national park.

    The park is 392 square kilometers and is the second most famous park in Kenya. If the weather gods are nice to you, there is a good chance of getting a view of Mt. Kilimanjaro which is the highest free standing mountain in the world.

    Winding up your game drive by evening, you will head back to your accommodation for dinner and overnight rest. Make sure you get a good night’s rest and recharge yourself for the next day’s adventure.

  6. Day 6 Amboseli National Park

    Today you will have a full day game drive at the Amboseli National Park, with all meals provided at your lodge or camp. Amboseli being famous for elephants, you should be able to get close to a few free ranging elephants.

    The vegetation of the park is sparse due to the long dry months, thus giving amazing opportunities to spot wildlife. The park houses the African bush elephant, buffaloes, impalas, Masai lions, cheetahs,spotted hyenas and blue wildebeest among other african animals.

    Keeping your camera ready at hand is highly recommended. The action packed day comes to an end by evening, with a fresh dinner awaiting you at your accommodation you can retire for the night.

  7. Day 7 Amboseli to Nairobi
