Voi Safari Lodge

Strategically situated in one of the world’s largest game parks, Tsavo National Park, Voi Safari Lodge stands high above the town of Voi, overlooking a vast expanse of the African bush. You can simply watch the herds of wild animals roam beneath you, or you can get closer by a network of access roads reaching into the many corners of this 11,666-square-kilometer park.

From the lodge, you can look out onto the three waterholes and see the ever-changing panorama of Africa unfold right before your eyes and at the same time enjoy the luxury of waiter service. There is a special "hide" for the camera enthusiasts affording close-up and candid pictures of the wild animals which do not suspect any human presence. This is an ideal spot from which to go out in search of the Big Five. You will be accommodated here on your first night.

Ngulia Safari Lodge

Ngulia Safari Lodge, built in 1969, is located in Tsavo West National Park, which is home to a big host of wild animals. It can be accessed from Nairobi (260 kilometers away), through Mtito Andei Gate, or from Mombasa (250 kilometers away) through Tsavo River Gate. The lodge is perched on the Ndawe Escarpment just below Ngulia Hills, overlooking the rhino sanctuary surrounded by scenic hills. You will spend your second night here.

Ngulia Safari Lodge no doubt has one of the most breathtaking views in Kenya. It has 52 standard rooms, all equipped with a bath and shower, as well as a balcony with a view of the vast wilderness and floodlit waterholes.

It has two restaurants. The main restaurant, built in an open-air style, has a view of floodlit waterholes and the Leopard dining tree. There is also the Leopard view bar open in the evenings before the arrival of the leopards from the wilderness. Guests can enjoy their meals as they watch the leopards feast, the other animals drink water and make love, and the birds compete in their melodies.

Kibo Safari Camp

Kibo Safari Camp has 73 self-contained tents for single, double, triple, and family accommodation. The beds have been custom designed and locally made using bush logs and will ensure a good night’s sleep. All tents have flush toilets, showers, and wash basins. You can enjoy your shower as you like, bubbling hot or refreshing cold. On your third and fourth night, Kibo Safari Camp will be your home away from home.

Osero Lodge

Osero maintains the authentic African safari tradition of elegance, luxury, and style. The guest rooms are spacious tastefully furnished bedrooms that retain the authenticity of being under canvas. They have polished wood floors and luxurious king-size or twin beds. You will stay here on your fifth and sixth night.

Lake Nakuru Lodge

Situated in the southeastern ecological niche of Lake Nakuru National is the Lake Nakuru Lodge, an oasis of comfort and excellent services with commanding views of the lesser flamingo, interspersed with the greater flamingo for which Lake Nakuru is justly famous. It is another world for the visitors, where one easily forgets the hustle and bustle of the city.

The lodge blends in well with the surroundings, and the animals often browse peacefully close to the lodge and environs, much to the fascination of the visitors. There is accommodation for 120 people, either in family rooms, cottages, or suites.

The service is unmatched anywhere in Kenya, a country renowned for hospitality. Above all, the staff is friendly and competent. There is excellent cuisine, which includes outside catering, bush barbecues, African nights, and sundowners. You will enjoy all of these on your seventh night.

Z Hotel

On the last nights of the safari, Z Hotel will be your home. The hotel is the original boutique hotel in Zanzibar. Opening in 2010, it brings casual relaxation blended with contemporary London-inspired design to the beaches of Zanzibar, providing the 21st-century traveler with a fresh and original beach holiday experience.

Set in a tropical garden with steps to the white powder of Nungwi’s award-winning beach and the temperate Indian Ocean, Z hotel will provide you with everything you need for a unique away-from-it-all holiday but with all the advantages of modern living, including LCD TV, cable, Wi-Fi, and docking stations in all rooms.

The London-inspired design blends Philippe Starck furniture and lighting with Zanzibari features to create a bright, airy atmosphere. The Z was named one of the "trendiest hotels in Africa" by TripAdvisor and the World Travel Award.

Program

Day 1: Nairobi to Tsavo East National Park

You will be picked up either from the airport or from your hotel at 7:00 a.m. in order to begin your safari journey. You will arrive at Tsavo East National Park in time for lunch and some free time before setting out on a late-afternoon game drive. Tsavo East is known for excellent game viewing.

Sighted animals can include lions, leopard, cheetah, zebras, giraffes, servals, antelopes, kongoni, lesser kudu, oryx, klipspringer, impala, striped hyena, ostriches, gazelles, buffalos, elephants, and many more. You also have the chance to see a variety of migratory and native birds, particularly between late October and early January. Dinner and overnight will be at Voi Safari Lodge.

Day 2: Tsavo East National Park to Tsavo West National Park

After an early-morning game drive, you will have a full breakfast before heading to Tsavo West National Park. You will arrive at your destination in time for lunch. In the late afternoon, you will visit the Ngulia Rhino Sanctuary, which is a 70-square-meter fenced area where Tsavo’s growing population of endangered black rhino are inching their way back from the chasm of extinction that was forced upon them by the rampant poaching in the 1960s.

After the visit, you will proceed on a game drive and see buffalos, elephants, lions, cheetah, giraffes, and more. As the sun sets, you will head back to your lodge for dinner and overnight.

Day 3: Tsavo West National Park to Amboseli National Park

The sunrise will find you ready for an early-morning "spice" game drive. You will visit Mzima Springs and explore on foot to see hippos, crocodiles, exotic fish, and tropical vegetation. On your drive this morning, you will also get to see many resident and migratory bird species. You will then return for breakfast and check out of your hotel before proceeding further south to Amboseli National Park, an approximate two-hour journey.

After lunch in Amboseli, you will relax before setting out on your afternoon game drive. Amboseli is a relatively small park, so animal spotting is easy and fast! On a clear day, you should be able to see Mount Kilimanjaro from a distance.

Some of the common animals you might see are large families of elephants, buffaloes, lions, zebras, gazelles, hyenas, giraffes, cheetahs, monkeys, baboon, hippos, and prolific birdlife (up to approximately 425 species). You will return to your lodge or camp for meals and overnight.

Day 4: Amboseli National Park

Amboseli is a big game park. It features elephants, antelopes, zebras, wildebeests, buffalos, and giraffes. Two game drives are planned for today, both of which will introduce you to the intense beauty and drama that fill each day here.

Predators stalk the herds of grazing animals, recreating the age-old story of life and death under the African sun, a lushly beautiful setting. In the evening, you will return to the lodge or cozy camp for a steaming bath, cocktails, and a sumptuous dinner. You will also have the option to visit a Maasai village (at an extra cost) in order to indulge in their dances and learn about their lifestyle. Dinner and overnight will be at Kibo Safari Camp.

Day 5: Amboseli National Park to Maasai Mara National Reserve

Enjoy an early-morning breakfast at your lodge and then depart for the Maasai Mara Game Reserve, arriving in time for lunch. Your afternoon game drive in this famous reserve reveals wonders. Animals present include lions, leopards, cheetahs, elephants, buffalos, rhinos, and more. Dinner and overnight will be at Osero Mara.

Day 6: Maasai Mara National Reserve

The day in the Maasai Mara Game Reserve will be spent in search of the big cats of the Mara and the spectacular wildebeest migration. Remember to keep a sharp lookout. You may witness a dramatic hunt, a solitary leopard retrieving its kill from the high branches of an acacia tree or a herd of elephants protecting their young from predators.

The Mara has one of the richest wildlife ensembles. It is also the backdrop for the spectacular world-famous annual wildebeest migration. The migration is considered to be one of the natural wonders of the world, especially as they cross the Mara River. The reserve has over 95 species of mammals and over 400 species of birds. Game viewing is never dull in the Mara, and patience is usually rewarded with unique sightings

Day 7: Maasai Mara National to Lake Nakuru National Park

After an early breakfast at your camp, you will depart Maasai Mara National Reserve for Lake Nakuru National Park, arriving in time for lunch. Check in at the lodge and enjoy a sumptuous lunch and relaxation before your afternoon game drive.

Later in the afternoon, during your game drive, you are likely to see a variety of birds on the lake and many different types of wildlife, including the white and black rhino, lion, leopard, and more. Your dinner and overnight will be at Lake Nakuru Lodge.

Day 8: Lake Nakuru National Park to Zanzibar Island

Enjoy breakfast and depart to Nairobi for a scheduled flight to Zanzibar. Upon arrival, you will be picked up by a hotel representative and dropped off at the Z Hotel on a half-board basis.

Days 9 and 10: Zanzibar Island

You will spend the next few days and nights by the beautiful beach. This is the perfect end to a safari as you can relax and laze away the days on the white sandy beaches or on the turquoise waters.

Zanzibar is the ideal retreat. The shores of Zanzibar host some of the world’s most splendid coral reefs, making diving one of the biggest attractions there. The underwater marine life is a world of its own, and you will want to spend hours exploring the surroundings! Your meal plan includes breakfast, lunch, or dinner, and your overnight will be at the luxurious Z Hotel.

Your stay in Zanzibar can last as many days as your desire, although it is recommended to stay for at least two nights. It is possible to organize tours to the exotic city of Stone Town, which is a fusion of Arabic, European, African, and Indian cultures. It is famous for being the birthplace of Freddie Mercury, labyrinthine streets, local markets, and of course, the famous spices!

Day 11: Zanzibar Island to Nairobi

After your stay in Zanzibar, you will be transferred to the airport to connect with a flight out of Tanzania. You will be heading to Nairobi. On this journey, you will be able to organize all your memories and feelings of this once-in-a-lifetime journey that will forever have a place in your heart.

Included excursions

  • Explore Ngulia Rhino Sanctuary and its surroundings on your second day
  • Visit the beautiful Mzima Springs on your third day

Location

You will spend the first few days of the safari in some of the great wildlife destinations in Kenya, including Tsavo East National Park, Tsavo West National Park, Amboseli National Park, Maasai Mara National Reserve, and Lake Nakuru National Park. After an action-packed adventure, you will then be flown to Zanzibar for some relaxation and beach time.

Tsavo East National Park

Tsavo East National Park is a very popular park for tourists from Kenya’s coast. The park is approximately 100 miles less from Mombasa. This is the park where you can see the famous man-eaters of Tsavo, as well as elephants, rhinos, birds, and more.

Tsavo West National Park

With a capacity of 30 percent of Kenya’s total park area, Tsavo West National Park is one of the largest national parks in Kenya. The park is easily accessible from the Mombasa-Nairobi highway and borders Tanzania. It offers tremendous views of a landscape packed with diverse wildlife habitats, acacia woodlands, rocky ridges, isolated hills, mountain forest, and semi-desert scrubs.

Amboseli National Park

This is Kenya’s second most popular national park after the Maasai Mara Reserve. The park is located 160 miles from Nairobi and offers a stunning view of Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru.

Amboseli is renowned for its large herds of free-ranging African elephants. There are over 900 African elephants in Amboseli and many other game, including giraffes, African lions, monkeys, zebras, hyenas, and antelopes. With an awesome view of Mount Kilimanjaro, the park offers a unique and breathtaking backdrop for viewing Africa’s animals.

Maasai Mara National Reserve

Maasai Mara is regarded as Kenya’s favorite and most popular game reserve, with over 140,000 visitors per year. The reserve lies approximately 270 kilometers west of Nairobi and covers an area of approximately 1,510 square kilometers, bordering the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. The landscape is mostly open savannah grasslands and acacia shrubland.

Starting any time from late July, large herds of Wildebeest and Zebra follow the rains and start grazing in the wide and open grasslands of what has become fondly known as “The Mara”. They may be late, but they will always make the trip, driven by dry conditions in the Serengeti and led by the lightning and thunder to the north.

Come November they start the homeward journey bound again for the Serengeti. This annual spectacle is known as the Wildebeest Migration and is not to be missed! At this time of year, you will also see a large number of lions, hippos, crocodiles, and vultures, all of which prey on the weak and young migrating animals.

Other game to be found in the Maasai Mara at any time of the year include elephants, cheetahs, baboons, gazelles, giraffes, jackals, leopards, hyenas, water buffalos, ostriches, and a large variety of antelope and birdlife.

Lake Nakuru National Park

Lake Nakuru National Park is just about 95 miles northwest of Nairobi. For the lovers of bird watching, it is home to over 400 bird species, including both the greater and lesser flamingoes, as well as white rhinos.
