Overview

From the open plains of Masai Mara, the shimmery pink waters of Lake Nakuru and the swamps of Amboseli, this safari takes in three of the most picturesque regions in Kenya. It also provides the perfect opportunity to spot the Big-5 and to capture some diverse scenery.

Itinerary

Day 1

Upon arrival into Nairobi, clients will be met and transferred to their hotel. 
Afternoon at leisure.
Overnight Bed & Breakfast basis.

Day 2   Nairobi - Masai Mara National Reserve

Leaving Nairobi after breakfast, you'll travel towards Kenya's fertile highlands and head down the Rift Escarpment on a road built by Italian prisoners of war during World War II. Look for the charming chapel they built at the foot of the escarpment. You'll pass the impressive Longonot earth satellite station as you head across the Valley to Narok, and then travel across acres of wheat and barley, before you reach the Masai Mara and your lodge in time for lunch. There will be an afternoon game drive.

Day 3   Masai Mara National Reserve

After an early breakfast, clients will depart for a visit to a Masai Village and a morning game drive, returning to the lodge for lunch and a siesta before setting off for an afternoon game drive. Return to the lodge as the sun sets.
Overnight on a full board basis.

Day 4

Leaving the Masai Mara after breakfast, you'll travel across the ‘breadbasket’ of Kenya, where acres of wheat and barley litter the landscape as you head north to Narok, the district headquarters of this part of Maasailand. Now travel across the vast plains on the floor of the Rift Valley, keeping an eye out for herds of giraffe and gazelle as you head up the Mau Escarpment, before arriving at Lake Nakuru around midday. The waters here are often coloured shimmering flamingo pink, from thousands of the beautiful birds lining its shores. After lunch, depart for an afternoon game drive in Nakuru National Park.
Overnight full board basis.

Day 5   Lake Nakuru - Amboseli National Park

After an early breakfast continue to Lake Nairasha for a boat ride. Later, leaving the Rift Valley behind, proceed to Nairobi, collect a picnic lunch and head south toward Amboseli arriving at your lodge by late afternoon.

Following an early breakfast, you’ll catch your last views of the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro as you depart Amboseli viewing game en route to the border of the park. From here turn north along a good tarmac road, across the beautiful and seemingly never ending Athi Plains, arriving in Kenya's bustling capital city of Nairobi by mid-day. Once in the city, you will be dropped off at a city centre hotel or the airport for your on-going travel arrangements.
