This is one of the best safaris in Kenya which covers the top wildlife parks namely Maasai Mara, a large game reserve famous for its exceptional population of lions, leopards, cheetahs and its annual migration of zebra & wildebeest which occurs from July to October; Lake Nakuru which is found in Central Kenya that has an elevation of 1754 meters above sea level and is known for the presence of the big five and bird’s sanctuary; and Amboseli, a highly-esteemed park popular for the large herds of elephants and its stunning view of Mt. Kilimanjaro. You will be staying in luxury accommodation for that ultimate relaxation holiday that Kenya has to offer.
Early in the morning, you will be picked up in Nairobi by the guide and provide a briefing on your most-awaited safari in Kenya before we depart for Maasai Mara driving through the view point of the Great Rift Valley. The enormous Maasai Mara Reserve is part of the vast Serengeti plains famously known for its spectacular great wildebeest’s migration and is home to the Big Five: Lion, Elephant, Leopard, Buffalo and Rhino. We will have our lunch at the camp and relax before departing for an afternoon game drive.
We spend the whole day viewing the great predators and exploring the park’s high concentration of wild animals. On the plains are enormous herds of grazing animals including the elusive Cheetah and leopard hiding amidst acacia boughs. Indeed, a safari in Kenya is not complete without a visit to this famous reserve. During your stay, there is an option to visit a Masai village to witness the singing and dancing of the Masai tribe, a tradition, which forms part of their daily lives and sacred rituals. You will also have an opportunity to glimpse into their homes and learn their social structure.
We will have an early morning game drive and return to the lodge for breakfast before we depart for Lake Nakuru National Park. After lunch, another game drive follows at Lake Nakuru. This park is a renowned paradise for Bird Watchers with its high population of birds, the most famous being the thousands of flamingos, which form a very beautiful deep pink coloration around the edges of the lake shore. Apart from these flamingos, there are also over 400 species of birds visiting the lake. Animals can also be sighted in the park including the Rothschild’s Giraffe, Black and White Rhino, Waterbuck, Reedbuck, Lion, Buffalo, Leopard, Baboon and several other species of plains game.
Early in the morning, we will once again embark on a game drive in Lake Nakuru and feast your eyes with sightings of flamingos, often referred to as the “Pink Lake”- an experience that makes a safari in Kenya one of the best! If you’re lucky, you might also see small game such as Water Buck, Impala, Rhino and Buffalo within the garden’s surroundings.
After which, we shall return to the resort for breakfast before we depart for Amboseli National Park. Amboseli is the country’s international biosphere reserve with a huge ecosystem that spreads across the Kenya Tanzania border. The park has an endless supply of water filtered through thousands of meters of volcanic rock from Mt. Kilimanjaro hence, Amboseli in Maasai means “Salty dust”. Herds of zebra, wildebeest, giraffe, impala, leopards & elephants will make your imagination of African wild life come to life. Mt. Kilimanjaro forms the backdrop of this game sanctuary.
We will set off for another extensive game drive, and bask under the sun while taking in the magnificent view of Mount Kilimanjaro. Amboseli is an excellent place to view a multitude of wildlife, from Wildebeest to Giraffes and Baboons among many others.
Visit to a Maasai Village*
Enrich your safari in Kenya with an optional visit to a Masai village. Maasai warriors are famously known as the proud nomadic tribe whose legendary prowess in battle and single-handed acts of bravery in fights with the wild animals are known across the world. This visit gives a good tour of Maasai culture and you will be welcomed with a sing and dance presentation, which forms part of their daily lives and sacred rituals. A glimpse into their homes and social structure is one of the most memorable experience to take with you.
*Entrance fee of 20 USD is not included in the package.
We will start the day with an early morning game drive. We will then be back to the camp to have our breakfast before we drive back to Nairobi where you will be dropped in your hotel or to the airport for your onward flight hence, capping off your 6 days safari in Kenya.
