Travel is by a private vehicle just for your group (minimum 2 people) and with an expert driver-guide. Flexible departures (any day). The tour includes a professional safari driver guide, accommodation of superb quality, well-located lodges/ camps, daily game drives and all park entrance fees.

This Kenya road safari kicks off with game viewing in Amboseli National Park, close to the Tanzanian border flanked by Mount Kilimanjaro. Amboseli hosts some of Kenya’s largest elephant herds and is famous for its big elephant bulls with their impressive tusks.

The park contains huge populations of buffalos, zebras, wildebeests, giraffes, hippos and various antelope species, such as impala. Amboseli is also home to lions, leopards, cheetahs and many other species of plains game.

The park also boasts an abundance of birds, including bee-eaters, kingfishers, pelicans, African fish eagles and falcons.

From Amboseli, we head to Lake Naivasha, a beautiful freshwater lake, via Nairobi and the scenic Great Rift Valley. Enjoy a boat tour on Lake Naivasha to see 300+ bird species and hippos up close.  Visit Crescent island where a walking safari will take you past grazing giraffes, zebra, hippos, antelope, wildebeest etc. 

From Naivasha, we take a day trip to Lake Nakuru National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Lake Nakuru hosts over 400 different bird species, including many water birds. Bird species include the Great White Pelican, African Spoonbill, Yellow-billed Stork, Lesser and Greater Flamingo, and Long-crested Eagle.

The Lake Nakuru National Park is known as an important wildlife sanctuary for some of Africa’s endangered species, especially black and white rhinos, and Rothschild’s giraffes. The game reserve is also home to lions, waterbuck, buffalo and baboons, which we keep an eye out for on our game drive.

We leave Lake Naivasha by road driving to our next game-viewing destination in Kenya, the world-famous Masai Mara National Reserve.

The Masai Mara delivers many attractions, as the reserve is home to an excellent year-round concentration of game, including the more than two million wildebeest, zebras and other antelopes that make up the famous Great Migration. The park is also home to over 450 bird species.

Days 6 & 7: Explore Masai Mara Game Reserve

We spend the next 2 days game viewing in Kenya’s top game park – the Masai Mara National Reserve. Our morning and afternoon game drives take us in search of Africa’s Big Five and the plethora of other wildlife inhabiting this vast Kenyan game reserve.

On clear days, the Mara offers fantastic orange-tinged sunsets well worth capturing on camera. The Mara reserve is 1510 sq km of incredible wide-open landscapes and fertile riverine woodland following the looping meanders of the Mara river in Kenya.

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 extra cost.

On the final day in the Mara, you also have an opportunity to visit an authentic Masai village.
