Day 1: Nairobi Kenya-Masai Mara (265km-Approx.5-6hrs)

0500hrs: pick up from your Nairobi hotel / Nairobi airport / Nairobi residence.

We’ll start out at 5:00 am to get a good head start on the day as we journey to the Mara, the most famous park in Kenya, and perhaps Africa. As the dawn lights up the surrounding fields, we’ll stop at Narok, a colorful small city, for breakfast.

We’ll arrive at the Masai Mara around mid-morning with plenty of time for a first game drive before lunch. You’ll find so much to see on this massive expanse of savannah and green hills.

The Mara is the seasonal home to the Great Migration, an awesome display of thousands, sometimes millions of foraging wildebeests and zebra in search of the tall grasses. Awaiting them are predators like river crocodile, lion, cheetah and leopard. You’ll be there to witness this timeless cycle of nature play out before you on the riverbanks and acacia studded plains of this great park.

Dinner and Overnight at the lodge or camp of your choice.

MEAL: Lunch & Dinner


Day 2 : Full Day Masai Mara

Our entire day is devoted to game drives throughout the reserve. There’s so much to see as the park is home to over 90 mammals in great concentration. Of course, the “Big Five” are here in big numbers as are many smaller species.

We’ll head down to the Mara River where the animals cross over from the Serengeti. During migration season (July-October), you will see them by the thousands, herding, rushing, thrashing their way across – an unending stream of wildlife searching for food.

A wonderful way to view this flow of nature is in an early morning hot air balloon ride. Rising above the Mara, you’ll take in the awakening land and the life upon it. The excursion is optional, so ask your driver/guide for details. He’ll be happy to arrange it.

Another optional excursion, closer to the ground is a visit to a nearby Masai Village. Here you can meet the Maasai people and learn about their nomadic way of life.

The scenic appeal of this tree studded savannah plains, its moderate climate and diversity of wild game species makes it a one stop shop for game viewing activities.

We shall traverse the reserve on a full day of unlimited game viewing encountering the big five and more of the lesser game.

You shall visit the Mara river where we may watch hippos & crocodiles or maybe the great migration (July -October)

Other options at the Masai mara

Day 3: Masai Mara-Lake Naivasha(240km-Approx.4hrs)

We’ll finish our tour of the Mara with an exit game drive as we depart the park. We’re headed for the Great Rift Valley and Lake Naivasha. The lake and its surrounding areas are a haven for birds, fish and larger wildlife grazing on the shores.

We’ll take an afternoon sailing safari gliding past hippos and enjoying the birdlife that flocks to this attractive freshwater lake.

Nearby lies the private reserve of Crescent Island Game Sanctuary. On our guided walking safari here, we’ll see pelicans and cormorants along the shore, but there’s also larger game like buffalo, zebra and giraffe grazing nearby.

And now for our third safari of the day – it’s a quick run over to Hell’s Gate National Park. The hot springs, geysers and steaming vents here are dramatic proof of the geothermal activity below ground. But we’ll be gliding along on bicycles past impala, gazelle, zebra, giraffe and baboon. A fitting and joyful way to end a busy day of animal watching.

Dinner and overnight at the lodge or camp of your choice

MEAL: Breakfast ,Lunch & Dinner


Day 4: Lake Naivasha-Amboseli(350km-Approx.6hrs)

We will depart early from Lake Naivasha to maximize our time at our next and final destination, Amboseli National Park. This is where the elephants roam… in great numbers. So great, in fact, that viewings are guaranteed. Perhaps the only wild animal park in the world that can make this claim.

So get your camera ready for the great herds, and adding to the fun, mighty Mt. Kilimanjaro looms over the park like a picture postcard. In addition to elephant you’ll have a good chance of finding lion, cheetah and plenty of colorful birdlife – the park hosts close to 400 bird species.

You’ll settle in at your lodge or tented campground, and with a little luck this evening, the clouds hiding Kilimanjaro’s snowy peak will part, revealing the world-famous summit.

Dinner and overnight at the lodge or camp of your choice

MEAL: Breakfast ,Lunch & Dinner


Day 5: Amboseli-Tsavo West(100km-Approx.2hrs)

It’s just a two-hour drive to our final park, the striking Tsavo West. This is one of Kenya’s oldest parks and offers us a vivid landscape of hills, golden savannahs and luxuriant oases. We’ll spend the day here on game drives, circling around giraffe, buffalo, hartebeest, dik-dik, monkeys and baboons.

At Mzima Springs, a verdant, lush watering hole, expect hippos. And you’ll love the special underwater viewing platform where you’ll enjoy a unique perspective of these aquatic creatures. Also look for crocodile and other wildlife along the shores.

Your final night of the safari will be spent here, and in the morning, we’ll take off on one more game drive in this celebrated national reserve.


Day 6: Tsavo West-Kenya Beach Resort

Now it’s a quick drive to the train station at Mtito Andei for your trip to the coast. On the way there you’ll be traveling through Tsavo West and Tsavo East Park so there’s still more opportunities to view these reserves and possibly some wildlife.

Your last day on safari! Out with the sunrise for a pre-breakfast game viewing drive. Nature is at its  best with the predators out for the hunt and the grazers browsing the soft, dewy vegetation. Natural colors dominate the scenic volcanic terrain. We shall venture out again in search of the big five. Later depart Tsavo west for the Kenya coast with lunch on the way arriving in the late afternoon.
