9 Day Amboseli & Maasai Mara

Day 1: Arrive Nairobi

Arrive in Nairobi, transfer to your accommodation.  Depending on the time of arrival, the rest of the day is at leisure. You may opt for optional excursions to the National Museum, Karen Blixen Museum, or a city tour.

Day 2: Nairobi to Amboseli

This morning we depart on our safari adventure. Drive to Amboseli National Park nestled at the foothills of Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa. Amboseli is a top destination in Kenya for wildlife. Indeed, one of the classic images of East Africa is that of a herd of elephant strolling across the plains with the snow-capped peak of Kilimanjaro in the background. It is to catch this sight that people flood to Amboseli National Park. While Kilimanjaro is actually across the border in Tanzania, Amboseli has a perfect view of the world’s tallest free-standing mountain, rising an impressive 5895 metres above the plains.  We will arrive around midday in time for lunch and later a late afternoon game viewing drive.
Included meals: Breakfast, Dinner

Day 3: Amboseli National Park

A day of game driving in the park, which contains swamp grounds in which elephants and hippos are in abundance.  A variety of plains game, antelopes and birds can be also be seen.
Included meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 4: Amboseli to Naivasha

The best time to view the majestic mountain is at dawn, when the clouds lift and the light is clear and soft.  We will take an early morning game drive to witness the African sunrise lighten the majestic mountain, distributing its golden rays to the dry savannah of Amboseli National Park. It’s a very good photo opportunity.  After this game drive we return to the Camp for breakfast before departing for Naivasha.
Included Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

Day 5: Naivasha to Maasai Mara

We start the day with a gentle walking safari around the Green Crater Lake. This is one of the very few game parks in Africa without predators making it safe to walk. You will have a rare opportunity to stand close to giraffes, zebra, antelope, flamingos and warthogs to name a few. We return Fish Eagle for a hearty brunch before driving into Hells Gate NP. A short game drive as we continue to the end of the Park before making our way along back roads to the town of Narok and the World Famous Maasai Mara Game Reserve.  Maasai Mara, Kenya’s greatest wildlife reserve, is without a doubt Africa’s most famous safari destination. The Maasai Mara Ecosystem is where over two million wildebeest and zebra migrate annually.  It also holds one of the highest lion densities in the world, which is why it the home of the BBC wildlife channel’s Big Cat Diary.  Other game includes: leopard, cheetah, buffalo, rhino, elephant, giraffe, zebra, lion, plains game, crocodile and small mammals including mongoose, hyrax, dik dik and the nocturnal porcupine.  Enjoy a late afternoon game drive followed by dinner.
Included meals: Breakfast, Dinner

Day 6: Maasai Mara

Spend a full day game driving in the Maasai Mara. The abundance and variety of game in this reserve is nothing short of amazing. Nearly every mammal can be seen in the Maasai Mara, including various antelopes, scavengers like hyena and vultures, and all the cats (lion, cheetah and leopard).  Sighting a leopard needs luck more than just being there, but lions are abundant and there are excellent chances for spotting cheetah. The hippo pool is a popular spot to watch out for hippos; with luck, you may catch crocodile basking on the rocks. Elephants, buffalo, the Maasai giraffe, wildebeest and the common zebra abound. Return to the camp for dinner and overnight
