Itinerary

Early morning pick up from Airport, Residence or hotel and start drive to Tsavo east National park. Arrive in time for lunch then an optional afternoon game drive. Tsavo East National park has vast open spaces that are mesmerizing. The huge, semi-arid wilderness is home to most safari animals, spotting animals is always possible here due to the lack of foliage with all of the Big Five present, Excellent birding with many dry-country specials, Great wilderness appeal with off-the-beaten track options, Beautiful landscape with scenic landmarks like the Galana River and Taita Hills. Overnight at tented camp or lodge.
We depart by road for Tsavo West National Park. Arrive in time for lunch then an optional afternoon game drive. From the sight of fifty million gallons of crystal clear water gushing out of from the under parched lava rock that is the Mzima Springs to the Shetani lava flows, Tsavo West is a beautiful, rugged wilderness. There are many elephants, and they are often covered in red dust, giving them an eerie appearance. The park is also known for its maneless lions and big herds of buffalo. Black rhinos have been on the comeback in Tsavo since the ’80s when they were close to being locally extinct. Overnight at tented camp or lodge.
Early morning game viewing drive at Tsavo West National Park and later drive to Amboseli National Park. Arrive in time for lunch followed by an afternoon game drive. Amboseli is often called the ‘Land of Giants’ – due to the impressive elephants here carrying massive tusks. The animals are set against breathtaking vistas of Mt Kilimanjaro, which makes an awesome backdrop to the small park. Aside from elephants, many plains animals are easy to spot. Most of the park consists of a dry, ancient lake bed and fragile grassland with patches of acacia woodland, while in the southern area there is a number of small, rocky, volcanic hills. Around the swamps Ol Okenya, Ol Tukai and Enkongo Narok, the vegetation is lush with yellow-barked acacias and phoenix palms. Overnight at tented camp or lodge.
An early morning game viewing drive at Amboseli as you head out to Lake Naivasha, which is the highest and the most beautiful of the Rift Valley lakes. It is one of the primary drinking holes for buffalos, zebras, elands, impalas, waterbucks and other grazers, as well as a favorite place for hippos to cool themselves during the day. Along the lakeshore, vineyards produce grapes for the country's fledgling wine industry. Afternoon boat ride to view hippos, rich bird life and small game. Later guided walking safari at the Crescent Island. Overnight at tented camp or lodge.
An early morning drive to Maasai Mara National Reserve. It holds on as one of the few places left on earth where wildlife still lives comparatively undisturbed, in the numbers that once roamed the plains and forests of Africa. The grassy plains and regular rainfall supports a huge population of herbivores, in turn attracting many predators. All three big cats are relatively easy to see. The Mara hosts the spectacular seasonal migration of many thousands of wildebeest, zebras and attendant predators. Arrive in time for lunch then have an afternoon optional game drive. Note: You can book an optional hot-air balloon flight over the savannah; it is a pre-dawn start and you are rewarded with a well-deserved champagne breakfast. Overnight at tented camp or lodge.
After breakfast, we have a full day game drive, with packed lunch provided. The quintessential Masai Mara safari is a photographer’s and naturalist’s paradise, with abundant elephant, buffalo, giraffe, black-maned lion and cheetah alongside the migratory wildebeest and zebra. Leopards are frequently encountered, endangered black rhino hide in the dense thickets and large rafts of hippo and enormous crocodiles are found in the Mara River. Many of the cheetahs are so tame they seek shelter from the hot sun under one's vehicle and several even climb onto the roof to get a better view of prospective prey. The park is also home to over 470 bird species. Among these 16 species of eagle, plus many hawks and falcons, marabou storks, secretary birds, hornbills, crowned cranes, ostriches, long-crested eagles, African pygmy-falcons and the lilac-breasted roller. At midday, your guide will set out a delicious picnic lunch in a shady and safe spot before continuing in the afternoon. Note: The day is yours to pace as you want. Should you want your day with morning and afternoon game drives only, your guide is available to make that happen as well. Overnight at tented camp or lodge.
Get to enjoy breakfast at your safari lodge or tented camp and even go on a final morning game drive if you choose before having breakfast. Depart for Nairobi late in the morning. Drop off to your hotel, residence or the airport in the late afternoon.
