Day by Day Overview
You will be picked up from your hotel or at the airport and depart to the Masai Mara with a stop en route at the Great Rift Valley view point for photos. Once in the Maasai Mara, enjoy a game drive to your camp/lodge arriving in time for lunch. Relax until the afternoon when you go on a sundowner game drive.
The Maasai Mara National Reserve, in south western Kenya, is the northern continuation of Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park. It’s named after the local Masai people and their description of the area when looked from afar – circles of trees, scrubs, savanna and cloud shadows. With breathtaking scenery and rich widlife, the reserve is famous for its exceptional population of big cats, the Big Five and the Great Migration of zebra, Thomson gazelles and wildebeest from the Serengeti every year from July to October. Other wildlife includes Masai giraffes, variety of antelopes, cheetahs, hippos, crocodiles and hyenas as well as 500 bird species.
- Dinner and overnight – Oloshaiki Camp or Ngama Hills Camp
Wake up early in the morning for a full breakfast before your game drive through this incredible reserve. Head back to the lodge/camp for lunch. Alternatively, you may decide to do a full day’s game drive with a picnic lunch. This gives you time to visit the Mara River where you have chance to see hippos and crocodiles.
- Dinner and overnight at Oloshaiki Camp or Ngama Hills Camp
Wake up early for breakfast before departing for Lake Nakuru National Park. This is a 320 km journey so en route there’s a mid-morning comfort break to stretch your legs. After going through the main park gate, take a game drive to your lodge/camp. After lunch have a restful afternoon until your evening game drive.
One of the Rift Valley soda lakes, at an elevation of 1754 m above sea level, Nakuru means ‘dust’ in the Masai language. Lake Nakuru’s abundance of algae attracts vast quantities of flamingoes and pelicans that line the shore. Other bird species also flourish in the national park as well as warthog, baboon, Rothschild giraffe, Thomson gazelle, leopard, cheetah, lion and zebra. There are, however, no elephants here.
- Dinner and overnight at Flamingo Hill Camp
Wake up early in the morning for a cup of tea/coffee before your early morning game drive. Return to the camp for a full breakfast and then depart to Lake Naivasha, an 80 km journey. Arrive at your lodge, check in and then enjoy a boat ride or nature walk. Relax until your afternoon game walk in Hells Gate National Park. This is the only national park where horse riding, cycling and walking is permitted.
Part of the Great Rift Valley, Lake Naivasha is a freshwater lake at an altitude of 1,884 m. Its name comes from the local Masai name Nai’posha, meaning ‘rough water’ because of the sudden storms which can arise. The lake is surrounded by a swamp and the Njorowa Gorge used to form the lake’s outlet but is now high above the lake and forms the entrance to Hell’s Gate National Park. The lake is home to a variety of wildlife including a sizeable population of hippo and over 400 different species of birds.
- Dinner and overnight at Sawela Lodge
After breakfast leave for Amboseli National Park. Once through the park game enjoy a game drive en route to the camp followed by a relaxing afternoon and a scenic sundowner game drive.
