Both adventure and relaxation await you on this tour. You are going on safari in one of Kenya’s smallest national parks, Amboseli, where you have a beautiful view of snow-capped Kilimanjaro. The park is especially famous for its large herds of elephants.

You’ll discover the amazing landscapes of the Great Rift Valley and Lake Naivasha – famous for its hippos and varied birdlife.

In the world-famous Masai Mara National Park, you have the chance to get right up close to the Big 5 and all manner of prey. There is also the opportunity to visit the tall, red-clad Masai in their villages.

After this adventure, it’s time for relaxation in Mombasa, where you can enjoy the white sandy beaches and go for a dip in the azure sea. You can also explore Mombasa and stroll through the narrow streets, smell the spices and gain an insight into the city’s fascinating culture and history.

Day 2: Nairobi - Amboseli National Park

You will be picked up at the airport by your driver/guide, who will drive you south towards Amboseli National Park.

Depending on when you landed in Nairobi, you will either eat lunch on the way to Amboseli or upon your arrival at your lodge in Amboseli. That afternoon, the very first safari of the tour awaits you!

Overnight stay Ol Tukai Lodge 

Day 3: Amboseli National Park
Day 3: Amboseli National Park

Amboseli National Park might be one of Kenya’s smallest, but great experiences await you here. The park is especially famous for its large herds of elephants, many of which have some huge tusks. The sight of the elephants with Kilimanjaro in the background is one of the most iconic images of Africa. The sparse vegetation in Amboseli makes it easier to spot the wild animals. If you’re interested in birds, you won’t be disappointed in Amboseli, as parts of the park remain swamp-like all year round. You have a packed lunch with you today, which allows you to spend the whole day in the park.

Overnight stay Ol Tukai Lodge 

Day 4: Amboseli - Lake Naivasha
Day 4: Amboseli - Lake Naivasha

A new day of new experiences awaits, as you head for Lake Naivasha. You will eat lunch on the way before driving the last stretch to Lake Naivasha, a freshwater lake located at the highest point of the Great Rift Valley, 1,890 metres above sea level. A boat trip on the lake awaits you in the afternoon. The area is famous for its hippos, giraffes, waterbucks, vervet monkeys and profusion of birds, both sedentary and migratory.

Overnight stay Lake Naivasha Sopa Lodge 

Day 5: Lake Naivasha - Masai Mara
Day 5: Lake Naivasha - Masai Mara

It’s time to say goodbye to Lake Naivasha and hello to Masai Mara. It’s a long drive you’re going on today, but it gives you a really good insight into how life is lived in Kenya. Sit back in your seat and enjoy the scenery and villages that zip by outside. Keep in mind that there is both Wi-Fi and power in the car, so it’s possible to share holiday snaps with your loved ones at home.

First, you drive past the old Longnot volcano, before turning west into Masai country. Along the road, you will see lots of men dressed in bright red costumes. The Masai have no tradition of cultivating the soil. They have cattle, which graze between the giraffes, zebras and other savannah herbivores.

Depending on the time available and the traffic, a short stop is made in Narok, which is the capital of the Masai. The villages outside the windows are gradually replaced by more and more wild animals, and you know that Masai Mara is just around the corner.

You also have the option of visiting a Masai village. This should be arranged with the guide on the safari. It costs 25 USD per person (not included in the price of the holiday) and this is paid directly to the Masai people.

Overnight stay Mara Simba Lodge 

Upgrades available:

Day 6: Masai Mara Game Drive
Day 6: Masai Mara Game Drive

The entire day is devoted to a game drive in Masai Mara game reserve. You will often be given a packed lunch to eat along the way, allowing you to make the most of your time. It’s impossible to say what you’ll see on a game drive, but we can almost guarantee large herds of elephants, wildebeest, zebras, hippos, gazelles and buffaloes. And with prey come the predators: lions, hyenas, cheetahs and leopards. But remember to keep an eye out for the smaller animals. A profusion of birds and colourful lizards are hiding in the bushes.

You will get right up close to a host of animals, which you experience from the protection of the Land Cruiser.

From July to October, you can experience the 1,200 km long migration of more than one million wildebeest along with a couple of hundred thousand zebras plus countless Thompson gazelles.

It is during this migration that many gazelles fall victim to the huge Nile crocodiles when crossing the Mara River.

Why not experience the Savannah as the sun rises – from a hot air balloon?

Day 7: Masai Mara – Nairobi - Mombasa

Unfortunately, after breakfast, the time has come to leave the savannah and head for Nairobi. Thankfully, you will still see wild animals outside the windows on the first part of the drive through the national park!

From Nairobi, you travel to new adventures in Mombasa with white sandy beaches, green palm trees, azure sea, coral reefs, fascinating history and a lively seaport.

It is possible to purchase a direct flight from Masai Mara to Nairobi to avoid the drive. Contact us for a price.
