Accommodation

On the first and second night you will be accommodated at Mara Duma Bush Camp. A Luxury Tented Camp located at the bank of Talek River on the edge of the world famous Maasai Mara Game Reserve in Kenya.

On the third night you will stay at Tumaini Conference Centre which has an ideal luxurious environment for travelers, business personnel, families, seminars, and workshops and is also an ultimate retreat destination.

On the fourth and fifth night you will be accommodated at Kibo Safari camp. Kibo Safari Camp is a luxury tented camp in Amboseli National Park in Kenya at the the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro which, at almost six thousand metres, is Africa’s highest and most famous snow capped mountain. It was this region of Kenya that, in the 1930’s, inspired Ernest Hemingway’s unforgettable stories ‘The Snows of Kilimanjaro’ and ‘The Short, Happy Life of Francis Macomber’ which were turned into more than successful feature films in the late 1940’s due to their renowned actors. All forms of wildlife still abound in this wilderness which continues all the way to the Amboseli National Park, an easy twenty minute drive away from the lodge.

Program

Day 1:Nairobi to Maasai Mara

Kickstarting your safari with an early pickup from Nairobi, you will head towards the world famous Maasai Mara Game Reserve. The 6 hour long drive to the reserve covers about 280 kilometers with a combination of smooth tarred roads and bumpy muddy trials. The last 90mins are particularly bumpy and not very suitable for people with back problems.

The game reserve is Kenya’s numero uno park and is usually on the “must visit list” of every tourist. True to its legacy, the Masai Mara is full of life and home to over 450 species of birds and animals. The highlight of these rolling grasslands and acacia savannas are the big 5 (elephant, buffalo, lion, leopard, and rhino). To say the least, it definitely crowns the climax of every other safari in Kenya.

Apart from the famous big 5, the Masai Mara is known for another natural spectacle - the Great migration. It is an annual activity which includes the migration of over one million wildebeest, zebra, gazelle, etc. from the Serengeti in Northern Tanzania to Kenya by crossing over the Mara river in search of fresh green feeding pastures. This is generally visible in the Masai Mara region in July or August.

The long day comes to an end with a delicious dinner and overnight rest at your chosen camp or lodge.

Note that the last 1-hour drive to Masai Mara is on the corrugated and bumpy road and may not be comfortable for clients with back problems. Clients with back problems can consider flying directly to (and out of) Masai Mara.

Day 2: Maasai Mara

Your safari will begin with an early morning game drive in the grasslands followed by breakfast back at the camp. Winding up with breakfast, you will head out to spend the whole day in the park in search of its popular resident predators and prey like zebra, wildebeest, giraffe, big 5 and so on.

Packed lunch will be consumed while you are on the safari, followed by a visit to the Mara river. The river is well known for its dangerous crocodile.

The day comes to an end with a delicious dinner and overnight rest at your chosen camp or lodge.

Day 3: Maasai Mara to Lake Nakuru

The destination for today is the famous Lake Nakuru. Starting your day early and finishing up a quick breakfast, you will begin the 6 hour long journey covering a distance of about 340 kilometers to Lake Nakuru. On reaching Lake Nakuru in the afternoon, you will be just in time for a scrumptious lunch and a few hours to rest after checking-in to the lodge.

Early in the evening you will head out on your game drive to see one of the world’s largest ornithological sites. The Lake Nakuru region is extremely famous for its flamingoes and diverse wildlife. What adds on even more awe to the place is the black and white rhinos that are found in this park.

The eventful day comes to an end with freshly prepared dinner and overnight rest at your chosen lodge or camp.

Day 4: Lake Nakuru to Amboseli

Starting off with an early breakfast, you will head out on an enroute game drive towards Amboseli National Park. The 7-hour long drive will give you ample game viewing opportunities on the move. On reaching Amboseli in the afternoon, you will be welcomed with a lovely lunch and some spare time for rest.

A short game drive in the afternoon in the Amboseli National Park allows you to experience the beautiful scenery along with the backdrop of the snow capped Kilimanjaro. This is definitely a sight to cherish and don't forget to keep your cameras ready to snap away.

The night will be spent in the lodge or camp of your choice accompanied by a freshly prepared dinner. Rest well for the last leg of your adventure begins tomorrow.

Day 5: Amboseli National Park

Today you will have a full day game drive at the Amboseli National Park, with all meals provided at your lodge or camp. Amboseli being famous for elephants, you should be able to get close to a few free ranging elephants.

The vegetation of the park is sparse due to the long dry months, thus giving amazing opportunities to spot wildlife. The park houses the African bush elephant, buffaloes, impalas, Masai lions, cheetahs, spotted hyenas, and blue wildebeest among other african animals.

Keeping your camera ready at hand is highly recommended. The action packed day comes to an end by evening, with a fresh dinner awaiting you at your accommodation you can retire for the night.

Day 6: Amboseli to Nairobi

On the final day of your safari, you will have an early morning game drive from 6:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. Post the game drive, the team will set out on a 265 kilometers drive to Nairobi.

You will be dropped off at the airport or at your hotel in Nairobi. With an incredible experience and loads of memories to cherish, this is the time you bid goodbye to your team.

Location

Masai Mara National Reserve

The Masai Mara National Reserve has unfenced borders with a number of private conservancies, including Tanzania's Serengeti National Park. This vast protected landscape is one of the top wildlife destinations in Africa, and Kenya's flagship conservation area.

Game viewing in the Masai Mara is excellent all year around thanks to the diverse population of resident game - including lion, leopard, elephant and buffalo – plus popular species like zebra, giraffe, hyena, eland, and gazelle. The Mara’s big cats are even the stars of a popular wildlife TV series.

From July to November one of nature’s greatest spectacles, the Wildebeest migration, reaches the Mara - the sheer number of wildebeest arriving in the area is staggering. The migration is a dramatic mass movement of almost two million wildebeest, zebra and gazelle in a seasonal annual cycle driven by rainfall. To reach the Mara’s fresh grazing, wildebeest make dramatic river crossings, facing enormous crocodiles to feast on the Mara plains and regain their strength. November's short summer rains trigger the last leg of the migration, when the wildebeest move south to their Serengeti calving grounds. The calving season also happens in the Mara between December and January. Known as the green season, it’s a time when surface water is plentiful and wildebeest, zebra and antelope give birth to their calves, foals and fawns. With so much easy prey around, it is also a good time for predators to raise their cubs and pups, making for wonderful photographic opportunities.

Lake Nakuru National Park

Lake Nakuru is one of the Rift Valley soda lakes at an elevation of 1,754 meters (5,755 feet) above sea level. It lies to the south of Nakuru, in the rift valley of Kenya and is protected by Lake Nakuru National Park.The lake's abundance of algae used to attract a vast quantity of flamingos that famously lined the shore. Other birds also flourish in the area, as do warthogs, baboons and other large mammals. Eastern black rhinos and southern white rhinos have also been introduced.

Nakuru means "dust" or "dusty place" in the Maasai language. Lake Nakuru National Park, close to Nakuru town, was established in 1961. It started off small, only encompassing the famous lake and the surrounding mountainous vicinity, but has since been extended to include a large part of the savannahs.Lake Nakuru is protected under the Ramsar Convention on wetlands.

Amboseli National Park

Crowned by Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest peak, the Amboseli National Park is one of Kenya's most popular parks. The name "Amboseli" comes from a Maasai word meaning "salty dust", and it is one of the best places in Africa to view large herds of elephants up close. Nature lovers can explore five different habitats here ranging from the dried-up bed of Lake Amboseli, wetlands with sulphur springs, the savannah, and woodlands. They can also visit the local Maasai community who live around the park and experience their authentic culture.
