Day 1
You will be met at Nairobi Airport and transferred to your hotel in this bustling city.
 
Check in and relax in your warm and friendly African surroundings.
Day 2
Transfer to Wilson Airport in Nairobi for your light aircraft flight to Samburu National Park.
 
On arrival check into your lodge and relax amongst these dramatic semi-arid landscapes, surrounded by the Samburu and Matthew Range Mountains. In the afternoon enjoy a game drive in this wonderful wildlife wilderness.
 
Note: As you will be flying in a light aircraft you must pack soft sports bags only, as rigid suitcases will not fit into the luggage pods. A baggage allowance of 15 kg (which includes your hand luggage) is strictly enforced for safety reasons. Excess baggage can be stored with our representative in Nairobi.
Day 3
Enjoy early morning and late afternoon game drives today in Samburu National Park.
 
Situated in the hot and arid northern region of Kenya, this reserve is located within the tribal lands of the colorful and semi-nomadic Samburu people, who are close relatives of the Maasai. The reserve is home to a variety of wildlife found only north of the equator - including the strange gerenuk, which stands upright on its spindly hind legs to browse from trees, the large Grevy's zebra, the reticulated giraffe and beisa oryx.
 
Crocodiles can be found in the broad Ewaso Ngiro River that runs through the park, as well as large herds of elephants along its banks. You can also hope to see lion, cheetah, Grants gazelle, the small dik dik and waterbuck, amongst others. Whilst out on your game drive, it is also possible to visit a local Samburu Village (pay entrance fee locally).
 
Birding is excellent, with over 350 different species. Special birds to look out for include the Somali ostrich, Somali bee-eater, Taita fiscal, Black-bellied sunbird, Golden-breasted starling, Orange-bellied parrot, Pink-breasted lark, Fawn-coloured lark, Verreaux’s eagle, Vulturine guineafowl, Von der Decken’s hornbill, Eastern yellow-billed hornbill, Northern red-billed hornbill, almost endemic Donaldson-Smith’s sparrow-weaver, Black-capped social weaver, Chestnut weaverand Chestnut sparrow.
Day 4
After an early morning game drive in Samburu, transfer to your light aircraft flight to the Masai Mara, named after the Maasai people and the Mara River that divides the park.
 
Masai Mara National Park is famous for its exceptional population of game and the annual migration of zebra and wildebeest from the adjoining Serengeti National Park. This phenomenon occurs every year from July to October, when game migrates along a circular route from the plains of the Serengeti to the Masai Mara and back again in search of fresh pastures, followed by hungry predators - most notably lions and hyena.
 
After checking into your lodge, enjoy a late afternoon game drive.
Day 5
Today is dedicated to game viewing on the open plains of the world famous Masai Mara region.
 
We set off early each morning, when game viewing conditions are at their best, to view the abundant wildlife of this region. Return to the lodge to rest in the heat of the day, before setting off again in the late afternoon for another game drive.
 
Nestled within the enormous Great Rift Valley, the Masai Mara is famous for its many prides of lions, packs of hyena and other predators - as well as huge herds of wildebeest, which number over one million, zebra and giraffe. All the Big Five can be seen here, as well as numerous other species including the Thomson's gazelle, topi, kongoni, impala, roan antelope and hippo. The nocturnal bat-eared fox, rarely found elsewhere in Kenya, also inhabits this park as well as the endangered cheetah and black rhino.
 
Bird watching is also excellent with over 450 different species. These include the Marabou stork, Secretary bird, Crowned crane, Ostrich, African pygmy falcon, Brown snake eagle, Black-chested snake eagle, Bateleur, Martial eagle, African paradise flycatcher, Red-fronted & White-headed barbet, Black-faced go-away bird, Woodland kingfisher, Violet-backed starling, Black cuckoo-shrike and various species of larks, cisticolas, vultures, hornbills and so much more.
 
Note: If your lodge is situated in a private conservancy, you will need to pay an extra $130 pp if you want a game drive that enters the Masai Mara National Reserve. As wildlife ranges freely between the surrounding conservancies & the national park, without any fences to restrict their movement, this is only necessary during the migration season and should be booked in advance to avoid disappointment.
Day 6
Enjoy an early morning game drive in the Masai Mara, before your light aircraft flight to Amboseli National Park where you will be met at the airstrip and transferred to your lodge.
 
Situated in southern Kenya, if the weather is clear this national park offers magnificent views of Mount Kilimanjaro in neighbouring Tanzania.
 
Check into your lodge for lunch, before enjoying an afternoon game drive across the vast lake bed in this wildlife reserve. Amboseli is best known for its great herds of elephant - you'll often find many of them standing knee deep in the water, spraying themselves to keep cool - but there is a lot of other game here including cheetah, buffalo, giraffe, many types of gazelle and other plains game.
Day 7
Rise early today for a game drive in Amboseli National Park, renowned for its large herds of elephants and where the local people are mainly Maasai.
 
In the early morning it is wonderful to see Mount Kilimanjaro hovering above the clouds. If the clouds clear, wildlife photography against this dramatic backdrop is particularly rewarding. With its dramatic contrast between dry savanna, fresh water swamps, salty plains and acacia forests, this sanctuary offers a fantastic array of birds and wildlife. You should see buffalo, black and white rhino, zebra, wildebeest and much more - as this low rainfall area is one of the best game viewing regions in the whole of Kenya.
 
Amboseli is also a haven for birding due to its many different habitats. Depending on the amount of rain that has fallen, you will find various water loving birds or other species on the salty plains. You can also hope to see a Martial eagle or Lappet-faced vulture.
 
Return to your lodge for lunch, before enjoying another game drive in the afternoon.
Day 8
Enjoy some final game viewing in Amboseli National Park, before your light aircraft flight to Wilson Airport.
 
Here you will be met and transferred to Nairobi Airport for your flight home.
