Tour Plan

Day 1 – Nairobi-Masai Mara National Reserve

You’ll stop briefly en route at the Great Rift Valley viewpoint to enjoy the stunning views of an enormous valley system said to be visible from outer space. You’ll arrive in Masai Mara in time for lunch. After lunch, you will have an afternoon game drive which will allow spotting of the magnificent wildlife in the park. This reserve is known for providing excellent predator sightings thanks to its relatively large population of lions, cheetahs and leopards. Bordering Tanzania, the Mara is in the northern extension of Serengeti and forms a wildlife corridor between the two countries. Your dinner and an overnight stay will be at the lodge.

Day 2 – Exploring the Great Masai Mara National Reserve

After breakfast, you’ll depart for a full-day game-viewing excursion with a packed lunch. You will go to the Mara River to see the annual migration of wildebeests if your safari period is between July-September. Masai Mara is one of Africa’s most lush reserves. It is renowned for providing excellent predator sightings in its natural habitats due to its relatively large populations of lions, cheetahs, and leopards. All the Big Five can easily be seen here. You can also choose to take part in optional activities such hot air balloon and a visit to Masai village at an extra cost. You’ll spend the evening at leisure then have dinner and an overnight stay in your lodge.

The ecosystem provides for about 56 different species of mammals including the Big Five except the elephant, black and white rhinos, hippos, waterbucks, Burchell zebras, Thomson gazelles and buffaloes are some of the animals here.

Day 4 – Lake Nakuru – Amboseli National Park

You will depart early in the morning after breakfast towards Amboseli National Park with lunch en route. Your guide will take you on an afternoon game drive. Amboseli is synonymous with two particular things—majestic herds of elephants and glorious views of Mount Kilimanjaro. Located at the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro, the tallest mountain in Africa, Amboseli National Park is one of the best places in Africa for getting up close to free-ranging elephants. The population is so robust here that sightings are guaranteed. Amboseli is also a photographer’s paradise. Those wonderful photos you’ve seen of elephants seemingly posing in front of snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro were taken here. Kilimanjaro, the largest mountain in Africa and the highest free-standing mountain in the world towers over the park like a stately and photogenic sentinel. When the clouds burn off at dusk or dawn, you’ll be treated to visions of its snowy peak. Your dinner and overnight stay will be at the lodge.

Day 5 – Full-Day at Amboseli National Park

You will have an option of a full-day game drive or morning and afternoon game drives. On your game drives on Amboseli’s great horizons, you will spot zebras, buffalos, gazelles and of course, cheetahs and lions. You will also see smaller mammals like hyenas, foxes, jackals, monkeys and yellow baboons are all here. The bird life is equally rich, especially in the park’s marshes and lakes. Be ready for sightings of pelicans, kingfishers, crakes, egrets and the Madagascar herons. Raptors (47 types) have been spotted including falcons and harrier eagles. Your dinner and overnight stay will be at the lodge. You can also choose to take part in optional activities such as a visit to the Maasai village at an extra cost.

Day 7 – Exploring Diani Beach

In the morning after breakfast at the resort, you have an option of going for a tour or spending time on the warm sandy beaches. The never-ending excitement of your Kenyan bush experience leaves you feeling exhausted and desiring a more relaxed place.

A coastal gate away from Diani takes you to a majestic tropical paradise of blue-green waters lapping at long soft sand beaches. With almost seventeen kilometres of pristine white sand, cerulean water, and waving palm trees, this picture-perfect beach hugs the shores of the warm Indian Ocean.

The more daring have opportunities to go skydiving. Depending on your adventure desire levels, you will partake in any of these activities.
