Our 7 Days/ 6 Nights Best of Kenya Safari travels to Masai Mara, Lake Naivasha and Amboseli National Park. If you have a short amount of time, the Best of Kenya is ideal! This safari explores the true gems of East Africa. Go on exciting game drives, night drives, game walks, and visit an authentic Masai village.
Day 1: Nairobi – Masai Mara Game Reserve
This morning we drive through the dramatic Great Rift Valley to the Masai Mara National Reserve. This enormous reserve is actually part of the vast Serengeti plains famously known for its spectacular great wildebeest’s migration and is home of the Big Five: Lion, Elephant, Leopard, Buffalo and Rhino.
Lunch at our Lodge and relax before departing for the afternoon game run. The Mara Game Reserve-one of the greatest wildernesses of the world. Large mammals are varied, and easy to see. Residents among the Parks are: Masai Giraffe, Buffalo, Eland and thousands of plain game including Impala, Zebra, Topi, both Thomson’s and grants Gazelles.
Overnight at the Lodge
Day 2: Discover Masai Mara Game Reserve
The search for great predators and perhaps even cubs continues today during extensive game runs. On the plains are enormous herds of grazing animals plus the elusive cheetah and leopard hiding amidst acacia boughs. During our stay we also have an optional opportunity to visit a village of the Masai people to witness 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.
Overnight at the Lodge.
Day 3: Explore the Masai Mara Game Reserve
We are in Africa of our dreams, the Masai Mara in Kenya. We spend another exciting day here, giving us the luxury of time to appreciate the region’s rich wildlife by game drive or even an optional Hot-Air Balloon. Zebra, wildebeest, topi and hippos are common, as are leopards, lions and cheetahs.
Overnight at the Lodge
Day 4: Masai Mara – Lake Naivasha (Great Rift Valley)
Our destination is Lake Naivasha . We arrive in time for lunch at our lodge by the lake and early afternoon, we take an optional boat ride.
Alternatively, a nature walk at Crescent Island is an excellent way to see wild animals while on foot. The Island is a private game sanctuary, which is home to zebra, wildebeest, gazelle, Vervet monkeys, hares, genet cats, waterbuck and giraffe. Or you may wish to lounge by the pool admiring the view of zebras, Giraffes and waterbuck just outside the fence.
Overnight at Lake Naivasha Simba Lodge or Lake Naivasha Sopa Lodge or Lake Naivasha Country Club
Day 5: Lake Naivasha – Amboseli National Park
This morning we depart by road through the scenic Athi Plains and into the bush country of Amboseli National Park, home to the legendary Masai tribesmen and famous for huge herds of Elephant.
Lunch en-route. Upon arrival we conduct a game drive before arriving to our lodge/camp. In addition to elephant, antelope, zebra, wildebeest, buffalo and the rare and elusive Leopard, nearly every vista within the Park is framed by majestic Mount Kilimanjaro in the distance.
Day 6: Explore Amboseli
Rising early for good views of Mount Kilimanjaro before clouds build up over the summit; we set off for another stimulating game drive. Amboseli is an excellent place to view a multitude of wildlife, including everything from Wildebeest to Giraffes to Baboons. Optional visit to a Masai village is planned after breakfast. Masai 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.
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. Midday finds us at our lodge for lunch and afternoon rest, followed by another extensive ‘Spice’ game drive.
Day 7: Amboseli National Park – Nairobi
After breakfast in the morning we depart by road to Nairobi. Transfer to the airport for your outward flight.
