7 days Kenya Safariadmin
Day 1: Nairobi
On your arrival at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, our representative will transfer you to the Safari Park Hotel in Kenya where you will spend the night on bed and breakfast basis. Depending on your arrival time you will have to explore Nairobi Town at your pace. Overnight at Kenya Safari Park Hotel.
Day 2: Masai Mara National Reserve
After breakfast, you’ll travel towards Kenya’s fertile highlands and leading down the Rift Escarpment on a road built by Italian prisoners of war during World War II. Look for the captivating chapel they built at the foot of the escarpment. Pass via the majestic Longonot earth satellite station as you cross the Valley to Narok. Move across acres of barley and wheat, before you reach the Masai Mara. After lunch, take a siesta and there is an afternoon game drive returning to the lodge as the sun sets. Overnight at Mara Sopa Lodge.
Day 3: Masai Mara National Reserve
Wake up very early for a morning game drive in the Masai Mara and then an afternoon game drive will follow. Note however that at certain times of the year the park is the Migration scene of the Wildebeest – and so if you time your Safari accurately, you will witness the event. A very interesting occurrence! Overnight and meals at Mara Sopa Lodge.
Day 4: Lake Nakuru National Park
After breakfast, you’ll see the world across the ‘breadbasket’ of Kenya, where acres of wheat and barley litter the landscape as you head north to Narok, the district headquarters of this part of Masai land. Cross the vast plains on the floor of the Rift Valley, to encounter herds of giraffe and gazelle as you head up the Mau Escarpment, before arriving at your destination, Lake Nakuru. The waters here are often coloured shimmering flamingo pink, from the thousands of beautiful birds lining its shores. Once in the park, there will be a game drive en route to the lodge. Have lunch and rest a bit in preparation for an afternoon game drive. Overnight and meals at Sarova Lion Hill Lodge.
Day 5: Amboseli National Park
Begin a journey across the top of the Rift Valley Escarpment, providing magnificent views of Lakes Naivasha, Elementaita and the Great Rift Valley, not leaving out the dormant Longonot volcano at a centripetal stage. Move via the Kenya’s highlands, for lunch in Nairobi and then proceed south across the Athi Plains to the border town of Namanga. Here you’ll detour east to Amboseli National Park at the foot of grand Mount Kilimanjaro, habitat to a wealth of wildlife but particularly known for its elephants. Reach your lodge with game viewing in the late afternoon. Overnight and meals at Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge or Ol Tukai Lodge.
Day 6: Amboseli National Park
Enjoy morning and afternoon game drives in Amboseli. Overnight and meals at Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge or Ol Tukai Lodge.
Day 7: Day of Departure
Morning game drive and you’ll hopefully catch your last clear early morning view of the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro as you leave Amboseli behind, while heading west to the brilliant border town of Namanga. Here you may find a good discount on unique Maasai beadwork. Then detour north along a good tarmac road across the gorgeous and apparently never ending Athi Plains, arriving in Kenya’s buzzing capital City of Nairobi by mid day.
