Lake Nakuru National Park

Combining some of Kenya’s biggest safari experiences onto a week-long itinerary, this road tour visits four of Kenya’s most incredible game parks – Amboseli, Aberdare, Nakuru & Masai Mara.

After meeting your guide in Nairobi, you begin with a road trip to Amboseli National Park – one of the most popular game parks in Kenya. Amboseli Park covers sprawling grasslands and the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak. Standing at 5896m above sea level the snow-topped mountain forms the backdrop to game viewing in Amboseli.

Amboseli National Park hosts some of Kenya’s largest elephant herds and also contains huge populations of buffalos, zebras, wildebeests, giraffes, hippos and various antelope species, such as impala. Amboseli National Park is also home to lions, leopards, cheetahs and many other species of plains game.

From Amboseli we head to the important wildlife sanctuary of Aberdare National Park in Kenya’s Central Highlands. One of the more scenic and tropical parks, it is home to the Big 5, as well as some rare forest-dwelling game like the shy bongo antelope. 

Here we stay at the Tree Tops Hotel or the Ark lodge. We watch the animals that frequently visit the lively waterhole beside the lodge, from a series of viewing decks and areas at different levels. Spotting animals at the floodlit saltlick and watering hole into the night, with common visitors including elephants, buffalos, rhinos and even leopards.

Continue the safari by road to Lake Nakuru National Park, originally established as a bird sanctuary Nakuru is a Ramsar Wetland Area, known for its spectacular birdlife. When water levels are high enough massive flocks of flamingoes have been known to gather at Lake Nakuru.

Highlights in Lake Nakuru may include sightings of tree-climbing lions and both black and white rhinos, for which the reserve is better known today. Commonly sighted animals include giraffes, baboons, zebras, buffalos, antelopes and hippos, with rare finds including leopards.

Then the time has come to explore Masai Mara – one of the most famous game parks on the planet, considered by many to be the finest wildlife safari destination in all of Africa.

We embark on early morning and afternoon 4×4 adventures in this Big Five Mecca. We may come across herds of wildebeest, elephants, zebras and antelopes, along with prides of lions, coalitions of cheetahs, a crash of rhinos and lone leopards.

If the timing is right, we witness the Great Migration – the unparalleled wildlife spectacle that sees over a million wildebeest, gazelles, zebras and other herbivores stampeding across the plains and crocodile infested rivers every year.

After 2 night in the Mara, we journey back to the bustling city of Nairobi in the 4×4 safari vehicle with a pop-up roof. By mid-afternoon we arrive in Nairobi where you can get dropped off at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport or your hotel.

We spend the day in the Masai Mara – one of the greatest wildernesses of the world on morning and afternoon ‘Spice’ game drives. Large mammals are varied, abundant and easy to see.

Wherever you go in the vast Masai Mara you will see plenty of wildlife, such as Masai giraffe, baboons, warthogs, bat eared foxes, grey jackals, spotted hyena, topi, impala, hartebeests, wildebeest.

Elephants, buffaloes, zebras and hippos are also found in great numbers. It is also common to see lions either basking after a heavy meal, or surveying the plains for their next meal. Cheetahs and leopards are harder to spot, but reasonably common.

The ultimate action here is, without doubt, the annual wildebeest exodus, the Great Migration, in July and August when millions of these grass eaters move north from the Serengeti in search of lusher grass before turning south again in October.

Hot-air balloon trips are an entirely outstanding way of seeing the savannah plains teeming with wildlife. These Masai Mara balloon trips can be arranged at an extra cost.
