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
This morning we visit the Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage (open only from 11 to 12 noon).
 
It took Daphne Sheldrick 28 years of trial and error to perfect the milk formula and complex husbandry required to rear orphaned African elephants, during the period that her husband was warden of Kenya's largest elephant sanctuary in Tsavo East National Park. Since then this sanctuary has gone on to save the lives of many orphaned elephant calves.
 
After lunch (own account) we visit the Giraffe Centre. Founded by Betty & Jock Leslie-Melville to save the endangered Rothschild Giraffe from extinction, this centre plays an important role in educating Kenyan school children on the country's wildlife and environment. It also allows visitors to come into close contact with the world's tallest species, including the opportunity to feed a gorgeous giraffe.
Day 3
Today we depart from Nairobi travelling 4-hours to Lake Nakuru in the heart of the Great Rift Valley.
 
A soda lake on the floor of the Rift Valley, at certain times of the year Lake Nakuru National Park is home to huge throngs of pelicans and over 400 different bird species, including the Greater (white) and Lesser (pink) flamingo. The lake is also a haven for certain endangered species including the Rothschild giraffe and black and white rhino. On arrival enjoy a game drive around the lake, before checking into your lodge.
Day 4
Today enjoy morning and afternoon game drives with your guide, exploring the wildlife of beautiful Lake Nakuru National Park.
 
Throngs of birds wade in its shallow salt waters - including pelicans, marabou storks and flamingos. With its significant population of rhino and giraffe attracted to its salt waters, Lake Nakuru also offers sanctuary to a wide variety of other wildlife - including large herds of buffalo, zebra, giraffe, monkeys, baboons, lions, Thomson’s gazelle, impala, ostrich and much more.
 
Note: If you are tall and remain in your chair for your game drives, please be aware there will be some restrictions on your viewing due to the height of the windows in the accessible vehicle. There are no restrictions if you transfer into one of the regular seats.
Day 5
This morning enjoy another game drive in Lake Nakuru National Park.
 
Afterwards drive 1.5-hours to Lake Naivasha, a freshwater lake in the heart of the spectacular Great Rift Valley. Enjoy a 1-hour boat ride on the lake, with the opportunity to see hippo and some of the 400 different bird species, before checking into your lodge.
 
Note: You will need to be lifted into the boat, so manual wheelchairs only. There is no accessible toilet on board.
Day 6
Today we travel 5-hours to the Masai Mara National Park, named after the Masai people and the Mara River which divides the park.
 
We drive past Maai Mahiu and down to the vast plains on the floor of the Rift Valley, keeping an eye out for herds of giraffe and gazelle. From Narok, the district headquarters of this part of Maasailand, we traverse the "breadbasket" of Kenya, where acres of wheat and barley cover the landscape, as we travel towards the Masai Mara.
 
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. Check into your lodge and in the afternoon enjoy a game drive in this magnificent wildlife sanctuary.
Days 7 To 8
Today is dedicated to game viewing on the open plains of the world famous Masai Mara region.
 
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 including the vulture, marabou stork, secretary bird, hornbill, crowned crane, ostrich, long-crested eagle and African pygmy-falcon.
 
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.
 
Note: If you are tall and remain in your chair for your game drives, please be aware there will be some restrictions on your viewing due to the height of the windows in the accessible vehicle. There are no restrictions if you transfer into one of the regular seats.
Day 9
Enjoy some final early morning game viewing in the Masai Mara today.
 
Afterwards we travel 5-hours to Nairobi, where you will be dropped off at your hotel in this capital city.
Day 10
This morning we departure early from Nairobi for the scenic 4-hour drive to Amboseli National Park.
 
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 too - including cheetah, buffalo, giraffe, many types of gazelle and other plains game. We return to camp as the sun sets.
Days 11 To 12
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.
 
Return to your lodge for lunch, before enjoying another game drive in the afternoon.
 
Note: If you are tall and remain in your chair for your game drives, please be aware there will be some restrictions on your viewing due to the height of the windows in the accessible vehicle. There are no restrictions if you transfer into one of the regular seats.
Day 13
Enjoy some final game viewing in Amboseli National Park, before your 4-hour transfer to Nairobi.
 
Here a hotel day room has been arranged for you, until it is time to transfer to the airport for your flight home.
