OVERVIEW

OVERVIEW

A 6 days amazing safari with the best of Kenya. Amboseli is the best park in the whole of Africa with stunning views to the Kilimanjaro and Lake Naivasha a unique place where you can do a boat ride among the Hypos. Mara is one of the best parks in the world where you can spit the Big 5 and witness the Great Migration between July and October.

Day 1 Safari/Tour

Nairobi/Amboseli

An early morning start and drive to Amboseli National Park. Check in at accommodation and lunch. Afternoon game drive. Amboseli National Park is situated due south of Nairobi, Most of the park consists of a dry, ancient lake bed and fragile grassland with patches of acacia woodland, while in the southern area there is a number of small, rocky, volcanic hills. Around the swamps Ol Kenya, Ol Tukai and Enkongo Narok, the vegetation is lush with yellow-barked acacias and phoenix palms.

Main Destination: Amboseli National Park

Best Time for Safari/Tour to Visit: June to September and January to February

Best Weather for Safari/Tour: Jul to Sep and Jan to Feb (Little rainfall)

 

Day 2 Safari/Tour

Amboseli

Rising early for good views of Mount Kilimanjaro before clouds build up over the summit with packed lunch provided, an optional visit to a Masai village can be planned after breakfast. A visit reveals the singing and dancing that are part of their daily lives and sacred rituals. A glimpse into their homes and social structure is a poignant experience. Despite its changing habitat, Amboseli National Park is possibly the best wildlife area in the whole of Africa to experience elephant at close range. Less unharassed by poachers, elephants feeding and bathing in the swamps must form the highlights of any Safari.

Main Destination: Amboseli National Park

Meals & Drinks: All meals included

Drinking water (Other drinks not included)

 

Day 3 Safari/Tour

Amboseli/Lake Naivasha

An early morning drive to Lake Naivasha, it is the highest and the most beautiful of the Rif Valley lakes. At 1910m (6200f), the water is fresh and the lake is fringed with dense clumps of papyrus (ancient Egyptian once used this to make paper). Kingfishers use the papyrus as a perch, herons hide in it while searching for food.

Naivasha is yet another area popular for bird watching (over 400species have been recorded). It is also a favourite weekend retreat for Nairobi residents, who come here to sail, water ski and fish. There are no crocodiles in the lake as the water is too cold for them, due to altitude but there are a number of hippos. Along the lakeshore, vineyards produce grapes for the country’s fledgeling wine industry.

Main Destination: Lake Naivasha (Lake)

Accommodation: Great Rift Valley Lodge & Golf Resort-Mid-range hotel

Meals & Drinks: All meals included

Drinking water (Other drinks not included)

 

Day 4 Safari/Tour

Lake Naivasha/Mara

Depart early morning to Maasai Mara National Reserve. Arrive in time for lunch then have an afternoon game drive. Mara holds on as one of the few places left on earth where wildlife still lives comparatively undisturbed, in the numbers that once roamed the plains and forests of Africa. As the northern tip of the vast Serengeti ecosystem, the Mara hosts the spectacular seasonal migration of many thousands of Wildebeest, Zebras and attendant predators.

Main Destination: Masai Mara National Reserve

Day 5 Safari/Tour

Maasai Mara

After breakfast, we have a full day game drive, with packed lunch provided. The reserve is well known for its black-manned lion, as well as its abundant resident wildlife and its one of the few places where it’s possible to see the big five during a morning’s game drive.

Many of the cheetahs are so tame they seek shelter from the hot sun under one’s vehicle and several even climb onto the roof to get a better view of prospective prey. For the bird enthusiast, almost 500 species have been recorded: among these 16 species of eagle, plus many hawks and falcons, 6 species of vultures, 8 species of storks 4 of bustard (including the Kori bustard, the world’s heaviest flying bird), and 9 species of sunbirds.
