Day 1 Nairobi to Masai Mara National Reserve (265 km – 5 to 6 hours)
A briefing from your guide starts your safari as we pick you up in Nairobi early in the morning. Your journey weaves its way through the Great African Rift Valley, an ancient landscape that is still in a state of flux; a place teeming with life and natural history. Stops are made for photo opportunities across the Suswa Ranges and Mount Longonot.
Lunch is served in Narok town: a hearty plate of local Kenyan food, followed by your arrival at your accommodation inside the Masai Mara Game Reserve. Drop your bags, take a moment to settle, then head out on your first game drive across the African plains.
The first wildlife safari experience will offer chances to see the animals you’ve dreamed about:
Many more animals await your discovery as you embark on your African safari proper. You’ll take dinner at your accommodation, readying for the adventures ahead. The first day of your Kenyan safari includes:
Day 2 Full Day in Masai Mara National Reserve
Your first full day out in the wilds of Africa starts with a game drive after breakfast. The Masai Mara is home to over three million mammals, meaning your chances of spotting the animals you’ve travelled so far to see is high. The plains are filled with herds of buffalo and zebra, and a visit between June and October should enable you to bear witness to the legendary migrations across the grasslands.
Lunch will be served in the park, next to the Mara river, affording you the maximum time venturing through the landscape and chance to encounter the stunning creatures that live here. Following lunch, you can take the opportunity to partake in the optional activity of visiting a Masai village. The people who have called the Masai Mara home since time immemorial have developed a special, almost symbiotic relationship with the land and creatures of the area. They will greet you with a traditional song and dance, and allow you chance to walk around the village, learn of their culture, and visit one of their homes. It’s an experience not available to many and carries an extra fee of just $20 per person.
Evening time will see you return to your camp or lodge and have dinner served. On the second day of your Kenyan safari, included is:
Day 3 Masai Mara National Reserve to Lake Nakuru National Park (300 km – 5 to 6 hours)
Rise early and take a game drive through the Masai Mara as dawn breaks. The creatures of the night will be finishing their nocturnal activities whilst the diurnal animals will be starting their day. Listening to the dawn chorus is an opportunity not to be missed, and the sunlight breaking over the horizon is perfect for photographing the inhabitants of this most enchanting of landscapes.
Returning to your accommodation, you will be given breakfast and then set out on your journey through the Great African Rift Valley. Lake Nakuru is the destination, and the journey is as beautiful as the final call; the volcanic landscape is punctured with ancient rock formations and dormant peaks.
When you reach your accommodation within the national park, you will be given lunch and taken out on an afternoon game drive. Lake Nakuru is a dream come true for ornithologists and bird lovers in general; there are over four hundred avian species that flock to the massive body of water. Along with the brightly coloured flamingos that dance across the water, turning it wonderful shades of pink, there are mammals abound, with:
And plenty more creatures to be spotted in the area.
Your afternoon exploring the lake will be rounded off with a return to your chosen accommodation and dinner being served. This day of your Kenyan safari will include:
Day 4 Lake Nakuru National Park to Amboseli National Park (385 km – 6 to 7 hours)
Another early start will give you chance to watch life spring into the lake as another day in the African savanna begins. Birds flock early in the morning, and the herbivores of the park will be hoping to drink and graze before the predators arrive, luck will see you spotting:
Breakfast will be taken back at your accommodation, from where you will depart towards Amboseli National Park. The journey, once again, will be stunning with backdrops of mountains and valleys along with local villages that have sprung up along the roads. This is your chance to get to know the landscape of Kenya as you wind your way through the majesty of the Great African Rift Valley.
Lunch will be taken at a stop along the way, and you will arrive at Amboseli with a short game drive as you make your way to your camp or lodge. Looming large over the park is Kilimanjaro; sightings upon arrival will whet your appetite for the mountain views that will accompany your next day on safari in Africa. Dinner will be served when you arrive at your accommodation and you can rest and ready yourself for a day on the plains in the morning.
Included in the fourth day of your African safari is:
Day 5 Full Day in Amboseli National Park
Spending the whole day inside the park will mean you can get deep into the territory of the big five of African safari:
With high chances to see them, along with the other creatures that are so vividly connected with Africa in your mind’s eye. Breakfast will be served and you will head out into the park, with the majesty of Mount Kilimanjaro forming the horizon of your day.
Ensuring you can spend as much time as possible surrounded by the animals you’ve travelled so far to see; lunch will come picnic style in the heart of Amboseli. Following this, a second chance to visit a village of the Masai people is offered. As an optional extra, there is a fee of $20 per person, which means you will be welcomed with a traditional song and dance, and shown around the village so as to garner insight into their way of life and culture.
Dinner will be served at your camp or lodge. Day five of your African safari includes:
Day 6 Amboseli National Park to Nairobi (250 km – 4 to 5 hours)
One final, early morning start should offer you a stunning view of the peak of the highest mountain in Africa – Kilimanjaro – before the clouds roll in for the day. This is a truly amazing sight to behold, being washed with the sunlight as it filters over the horizon, the animals of the grasslands stirring to life; is there anything more awe inspiring to behold?
With the perfect morning over, you will return to your accommodation to take breakfast and depart towards Nairobi. Leaving the park will allow you to say a final farewell to the mammals, birds, and landscapes that have captivated your imagination for your time on safari in Kenya.
The drive back to the capital city will once again show you life in rural Kenya, and you will be stopped for lunch in a local town to take in some traditional Kenyan food one last time.
