Itinerary

Day 1Nairobi

Welcome in Kenya! Arrival at JKIA, pick up by your guide and briefing, overnight and breakfast at Southern Sun Mayfair Hotel.

Day 2Lake Nakuru

After an early breakfast we will drive from the Planis to the Amboseli National Park. The park is known for its landscape dominated by Mount Kilimanjaro. It offers an interesting contrast with its dry and dusty appearance, which can be attributed to the volcanic ash that came out of Kilimanjaro when it last erupted. Despite the dusty appearance, there is a continuous supply of water through Kilimanjaro melted snow, filtered through the volcanic rocks.

After breakfast drive to Lake Nakuru. Lake Nakuru National Park was built to protect the giant flamingo swarms. With over 1 million flamingos, the shore of the lake is pink. Watch the remarkable game of hippos and clawless otters in the lake. Waterbucks, bohor reedbucks and zebras roam the grazing on the shore. The woodland and the forest are today the home of black and white rhinoceros. In 1987, only two black rhinos remained due to the devastating effects of poaching. By establishing a rhino sanctuary within the park and crossing it with a breeding herd from Laikipia, the Kenya Wildlife Service (K.W.S.) has succeeded in multiplying rhinos again successfully in the park. Wildlife watching is relatively easy and will be possible until sunset. Buffalo, leopard, lion, red-shielded giraffe, colobus monkeys are plentiful in the forest. In the scrubland you will find Eland antelope, ibex, impala, Chandler reedbuck and dikdiks, while rock hyrax and cliff-diver can be found on the cliffs and embankments. Another highlight of the park is the Euphorbia forest – the largest in Africa.

Day 3, 4Masai Mara

After breakfast, leave Nakuru and drive to the Maasai Mara Game Reserve, the “spotted plain” according to the Maa language. This is home to the largest concentration of large mammals and is widely recognized as Africa’s ultimate conservation area. The park is the northern continuation of the vast Serengeti – Mara ecosystem, famous for its annual wildebeest migration. You will arrive at your lodge for lunch. Afternoon game drive to sunset at this spectacular location with breathtaking scenery, endless plains and the widest variety of wildlife.

The landscape consists of gentle savannahs with spotted shrubs and bush thickets, which makes them look like dotted.

Today you have the opportunity to explore this great reserve in its depth. You will see elephants, giraffes, packs of lions, and thousands of impalas, topi, and thomson glands. Birds are also very diverse, including migratory birds more than 450 species of birds, including 57 birds of prey, are counted. The Mara is the scene of the annual migration of millions of wildebeests from the Serengeti Plains in search of water and grasses. During your stay in the Mara you will have the opportunity to float above the Mara – Serengeti Ecosystem aboard a hot air balloon, followed by a gourmet champagne breakfast. You can also visit a Maasai village and enjoy Maasei dances entertainment. (Options for an extra charge).

Day 5Nairobi

Today you drive back to Nairobi to continue your tour south. Time permitting, take a city tour or drive past Giraffe Center and feed the red-shielded giraffes.

Day 6, 7Ambolesi National Park

After an early breakfast we will drive from the Planis to the Amboseli National Park. The park is known for its landscape dominated by Mount Kilimanjaro. It offers an interesting contrast with its dry and dusty appearance, which can be attributed to the volcanic ash that came out of Kilimanjaro when it last erupted. Despite the dusty appearance, there is a continuous supply of water through Kilimanjaro melted snow, filtered through the volcanic rocks.

Spend another day in the park with game viewing in the morning and afternoon. These include zebras, gnus, giraffes, impala, caracal and serval, lions, leopards, cheetahs, buffaloes. There are also more than 400 species of birds, including the bee-eater, kingfisher, African osprey, martial eagle and pygmy hawk. The visitors come especially to observe the huge elephant herds. The bull elephants have some of the largest tusks in Kenya. You can also enjoy excellent views of Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru

day 8Tsavo East National Park

Departure through the Chyulu Hills in the second largest park Tsavo, known by the “Ogres Lion”. During the railway construction from Mombasa to Uganda they attacked the workers. The story was filmed with “The Man and the Dark”. They arrive at the lodge for lunch and later set off for an afternoon game drive. Tsavos’s abundant wildlife will always excite you and the sight of dust-red elephant wallowing, rolling and spraying each other with the midnight blue waters of palm-shaded Galana River is one of the most evocative images in Africa. This along with the 300 kilometer long Yatta Plateau, the longest lava flow in the world, makes for an adventure unlike any other in the Tsavo East. The park forms the largest protected area in Kenya and is home to most of the larger mammals, vast herds of dust –red elephant, Rhino, buffalo, lion, leopard, pods of hippo, crocodile, waterbucks, lesser Kudu, gerenuk and the prolific bird life features 500 recorded species.
