The park is famous in particular for its huge herds of elephants. In Nairobi, you will have the chance to walk in the footsteps of Danish author Karen Blixen and to visit her old farm. You will experience the magnificent landscapes of the Great Rift Valley and Lake Naivasha, which is renowned for its hippopotamuses and varied birdlife population. A visit to the world-famous Masai Mara National Park will give you the opportunity to see ‘The Big 5’ – and many other fascinating animals – right up close.

After this magnificent adventure, it is time to kick back and relax on magical Zanzibar.

Day 1: Fly to Kenya

Departure day, where you will fly to Kenya with connecting flights along the way.

Day 2: Nairobi - Amboseli National Park

Your driver/guide will be waiting to welcome you at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. From here you will head straight to Amboseli and arrive at Ol Tukai Lodge for an early check-in. You will enjoy lunch provided at the hotel and later in the afternoon embark on your first game drive.

Overnight stay is at  Ol Tukai Lodge ****

Day 3: Amboseli National Park

The Amboseli National Park is one of the smaller parks in Africa, but there are still plenty of amazing experiences waiting for you here.

The sight of Kilimanjaro, with its snow covered peak, gives Amboseli a special beauty and charm. The sparse vegetation throughout the park makes it much easier to find the wildlife.

Amboseli is best known for its large herds of elephant and there are plenty of bird species to be found.

Overnight stay is at  Ol Tukai Lodge ****

Day 4: Nairobi - Lake Naivasha

A new day, with new adventures ahead of us. After breakfast we head towards the outskirts of Nairobi, where we break for lunch at The Karen Blixen Coffee Garden.

With time permitting, after lunch it is possible to visit the nearby Giraffe Centre, the beautiful Kazuri Bead and Ceramic factory or The David Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage.

We set off early afternoon and drive north towards Lake Naivasha, a fresh water lake located at the highest point of the Great Rift Valley, 1890 metres above sea level. We enjoy an afternoon boat ride along the lake. The area is best known for sightings of hippo, giraffe, waterbuck, velvet monkey and the rich and varied birdlife on offer.

Overnight stay is at  Lake Naivasha Sopa Lodge****

Day 5: Lake Naivasha - Masai Mara

After breakfast we depart for our visit to the famous Masai Mara Game Reserve.  We will drive through the spectacular Great Rift Valley via Narok town (The major Masai administrative centre). Masai Mara is one of Kenya’s most precious wildlife sanctuaries. This area has one of Africa’s greatest concentrations of wild animals. The African wildlife can be found here in staggering numbers, which in turn increases the count of predator population. We will arrive in good time for you to enjoy lunch at the lodge. During your afternoon game drive you may see wildebeest, herds of buffalo, lion, impala, giraffe, elephant, warthog, ostrich, cheetah, hyena and other wildlife.

If you wish to visit a Masai village, please arrange this with your safari guide in advance. The cost is 25 USD / approximately £16 per person (Not included in the tour price) and is paid directly to the Masai.

Overnight stay is at  Masai Mara Sopa Lodge ****

Day 6: Masai Mara Game Drive

We take a full day game drive in Masai Mara National Park, the Kenyan part of the vast Serengeti ecosystem and in the rain season, home to arguably the greatest concentration of wildlife.

Covering the fabulous plains we encounter large herds of elephant, wildebeest, zebra, hippo, giraffe, gazelle and other prey to the hunting lion, hyena, leopard and cheetah.

From July to October you can experience the 1,200-kilometer journey by over a million wildebeest, the Thompson gazelle and few hundred thousand zebra, in search of fresh water and grass. It is during this journey that some of the animals fall victim to the enormous Nile crocodile when crossing the Mara River.

How about experiencing the savannah during sunrise, from an air balloon? Read here for more details.

The days on the island are yours to do with as you wish.

Surrounded by the waters of the Indian Ocean, Zanzibar consists of the main islands of Unguja (also called ‘Zanzibar’) and Pemba, as well as a number of smaller islands. The island of Zanzibar is a treasure trove of natural and cultural treats. Brilliant white sandy beaches, azure seas and a truly amazing coral reef. A warm and sunny climate all year round. A dramatic history, liberally sprinkled with Arabian sultans, Portuguese seafarers, unscrupulous slavers and European explorers, who have all left their mark on the island. And one of the most fascinating towns in Africa, dotted with fine examples of beautiful Arabian architecture. Not forgetting the delicious Swahili cuisine and the accommodating population.
