Day 1

Amboseli National Park

Arrival to NBO airport, proceed with immigration and baggage claim.

Once you exit the airport you will meet your safari driver guide with who you will start the adventure!

We are starting from Amboseli Park. It is a park where you can meet all the members of the Big Five and enjoy the best views of Kilimanjaro.

Upon arrival at the lodge, you will have a little rest. Afterwards, your first game drive will begin. You will drive through the green grasslands of the park and take pictures of the many animals on your way. The most popular resident here is the African elephant. Try to catch the cherished shot and photograph the elephant walking in front of Kilimanjaro.

In the evening you will return to your lodge.

Day 2

Amboseli National Park

Today you might meet Africa's most beautiful sunrise. You will wake up to the sounds of wildlife and go to see Kilimanjaro in the morning sun.

You have a morning and evening safari scheduled for today. And in the afternoon you can relax by the pool with cocktails. Listen to light African music and melt into the atmosphere of "Hakuna Matata".

The lodge will offer you bush walks, camel rides and sundowners. Be ready for an extremely exciting day!

Day 3

Lake Naivasha

Breakfast and game en route to the floor of Great Rift Valley to Lake Naivasha. Arrive at Chui Lodge for lunch. Lots of activities in the afternoon and evening including a day game drive, a walking safari on Crescent Island & boat trip.

We know the constant traveling might seem like a bit much, but we promise you unrivaled sights of the most beautiful scenery, wildlife, and birdlife Kenya has to offer.

The four-hour journey to Lake Naivasha commences shortly after breakfast. The name ‘Naivasha’ has been derived from the local Maasai word ‘Nai’posha’ meaning ‘rough water’ – sudden storms occur rather frequently in the area, so we’d advise you to pack an umbrella and a windcheater to stay dry during your visit. Lake Naivasha is part of the Great Rift Valley (a 6,000 mile fissure (crack) in the Earth’s crust stretching from Lebanon to Mozambique, which divides Kenya into two segments) and is one of the highest lakes in the area located at 1,884 metres above sea level. Fringed by thick papyrus, this beautiful freshwater lake is home to a variety of fish, birdlife and hippos. You’re also likely to see giraffe grazing among the acacia woodlands, the buffalo wallowing in the swamps and the Colobus monkeys calling out from the treetops.

Once you reach Lake Naivasha and disembark from the vehicle, stretch your legs out, have a sip of water or a bite of your snack and start exploring because the day will come to an end but the activities won’t. Hugged by grassy banks and shingled with cacti and sand olive trees, the area is well-known for its hiking and nature trails, day and night game drives and boating excursions. Lake Naivasha is also one of the primary drinking holes for buffalos, zebras, elands, impalas and waterbucks; it’s also one of the places you’ll see a hippo or two lazing about in the shallow waters or snoozing at the shores – this is nature at its very best and it’s the perfect way to get up close to these magnificent creatures who make our Earth a brighter, better place to live on. The birdwatchers among you will have a field day as the Lake is home to over 450 bird species. Take a moment to spot grey-backed fiscals, red-billed fire-finches, kingfishers, herons and more in the sky and the swamps.

Day 4

Lake Naivasha

Today we can let you to rest at the lodge or you can plan your safari schedule with the guide. As well today if you wish you can travel to Lake Nakuru National park for the game drive and come back. It's only 1 hour drive between the parks. So you decide how would you like to spend this day!

Day 5

Masai Mara National Reserve

After breakfast in your lodge you will leave Naivasha and head to Masai Mara.

You will arrive at the camp, and after resting, you will embark on game drive. The Masai Mara is home to the Big Five: elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo and rhino. You should be lucky enough to meet each of them. Moreover, the animal world of the Mara is so vivid that you can even see several different kinds of animals at the same time.

In the evening in your lodge, with a glass of wine, you will flip through the photos taken during the day and realize how lucky you are to find yourself among all this beauty.

Day 6

Masai Mara National Reserve

Anyone who hears the name ‘Kenya’ automatically associates it to the Maasai (or Masai) Mara people after whom the reserve has been named. We know we keep saying how beautiful the game drives are and how wonderful the experience is, but the Mara Game Reserve is the crowning jewel of this glorious trip because of the legendary wildebeest migration that takes place in July, when the animals arrive into Kenya and November, when they depart across the border into Tanzania. This event is a sight that you cannot afford to miss and an experience you need to add to and check off your wanderlust bucket list. We promise there are no regrets to be had!

Located in southwestern Kenya along the Great Rift Valley, the Mara National Reserve together with Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park forms Africa’s most diverse and spectacular ecosystem. It’s a land of breath-taking vistas, abundant wildlife and endless plains. ‘Mara’ in the local Maasai language means ‘spotted’ and refers to the circles of trees, savannahs and shrubs in the area. The Mara National Reserve spans 1,510 km2 and is a photographer’s and naturalist’s paradise, featuring a year-round concentration of game and other wildlife, including oribi, reed-buck, black-backed and side-striped jackals, serval, hyena, bat-eared foxes, crocodiles, baboons, warthog and topi.

With two days to explore the reserve, this is your chance to explore park in its best.

Eastern Serengeti

You’ve seen the game, taken pictures of the wildlife, identified some bird species, taken a walk in nature and forever captured the Great Migration of the wildebeest. Your trip is in its final leg in Kenya, we start the journey towards another legend - Serengeti in Tanzania.

Today will be a long tiring day for traveling, you'll be dropped to Isebania border where you complete immigration process to enter Tanzania, and you'll meet your new Tz safari guide for the duration of your trip.
