Arrive in time for lunch and enjoy afternoon game drives in the park. The ecosystem is mainly savannah grassland spread across the Kenya-Tanzania border and its famous for being the best place in Africa to get close to free-ranging elephants among other wildlife species.

All meals and overnight at Amboseli Kimana Tented Safari Camp
Depart Amboseli in the morning via Nairobi for lunch then drive to the Great Rift Valley with beautiful scenery en route. Arrive at Lake Nakuru, often referred to as ‘pink lake’ due to the great masses of flamingos. Arrive in the early evening and head out for a game drive.
Lake Nakuru lies in central Kenya, 140 km north-west of Nairobi, in Nakuru district of the Rift Valley Province. The ecosystem comprises the soda lake on the floor of the rift valley, surrounded by mainly wooded and bushy grasslands. The park supports a wide ecological diversity with flamingos (greater and lesser) and other water birds being the major attractions of the area. The ecosystem is home to about 56 different species of mammals including lion, waterbuck, buffalo and baboon. The park is also an important haven for endangered species, particularly Rothschild giraffe and black and white rhino.
Dinner and overnight at Lake Nakuru Budget Hotel
Then it’s back on the road as we make our way to our next game viewing destination, the world-famous Masai Mara Game Reserve. We travel via the floor of the scenic Great Rift Valley, arriving at the Masai Mara camp in time for lunch. Then we venture into the Masai Mara Reserve on a thrilling afternoon to evening game drive.
The Masai Mara National Reserve is situated in south-west Kenya and is one of Africa’s greatest wildlife reserves. Together with the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania it forms Africa’s most diverse and spectacular eco-system and possibly the world’s top safari big game viewing eco-system. It’s home to over 95 species of mammals, 570 recorded species of birds, one of the highest lion densities in world and is where over two million wildebeest, zebra and Thomson’s gazelles migrate annually. The Maasai Mara National Reserve stretches 1,510 sq km (580 sq miles) and rises 1,500-2,170 meters above sea level.
Dinner and overnight stay at tented camp
Enjoy a full day of game drives in search of Africa’s Big Five and the plethora of other wildlife inhabiting this vast Kenyan game reserve. On clear days, the Mara offers fantastic orange-tinged sunsets that make for spectacular photos. The Mara Reserve has incredible wide-open landscapes and fertile riverine woodlands, following the looping meanders of the Mara and Talek rivers in southwest Kenya.
The wildlife is amazing – wherever you go in the vast park you will see diverse wildlife such as Masai giraffe, baboons, warthogs, bat eared foxes, grey jackals, spotted hyenas, topis, impalas, hartebeests and wildebeests while elephants, buffalos, zebras and hippos are also found in great numbers. It is also common to see lions either basking after a heavy meal or surveying the plains for their next meal. Cheetahs and leopards are harder to spot, but reasonably common. The ultimate action here is without a doubt the annual wildebeest exodus, the great migration in July and August when millions of grazers move north from the Serengeti in search of lush grass before turning south again in October. Balloon trips are an outstanding way of seeing the savannah plains teeming with wildlife and can be arranged at an extra cost.
